Same-sex families hit the big screen in animated film The Boxtrolls

The trailer for a new animated film features two dads, two moms, and a bunch of other cooky relatives
The new Boxtrolls film features same-sex parents.

The Boxtrolls film will prove ‘families come in all shapes and sizes, even rectangles’.

Brought to us by Laika, the same stop-motion animation studio that brought gay jock character Mitch in 2012’s ParaNorman, the trailer for Boxtrolls talks about same-sex parents.

The trailer opens by saying: ‘Sometimes there's a mother, sometimes there's a father, sometimes there's a father and a father, sometimes both fathers are mothers.

Travis Knight, CEO of Laika, said: 'The Boxtrolls is a visually dazzling mash-up of gripping detective story, absurdist comedy, and steampunk adventure with a surprisingly wholesome heart.

‘The Boxtrolls is a moving and human story with timelessness and powerful emotional resonance.’

Until we can see the film in theatres in September 2014, which features the voices of Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, and Jared Harris catch a view of the trailer below:
