Earlier this year, both Louise and I had the opportunity to visit the set of The Boxtrolls at LAIKA Studios. It was a phenomenal experience getting to see the puppets and sets up close and personal, as well as meet the creative minds behind it all. I’ve been so excited to see the film ever since and all of its finishing touches – like the soundtrack.
Knowing how much care had been put into this movie from meeting the filmmakers, I knew the soundtrack would be on point also. The Boxtrolls Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features an ambient, atmospheric instrumental score by Dario Marianelli that really sets the tone for the picture.
Also featured are some lighthearted songs included in the movie, such as “The Boxtrolls Song” written by Eric Idle, the catchy and upbeat “Some Kids”, writen by Jessie Donaldson and Rilchie Young, and the cover of “Whole World” that you might recognize from the film’s trailers. This is a really fun CD in the spirit of the movie and a great add to your collection if you’re a fan of the film!
The Boxtrolls Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available on Amazon and wherever fine music is sold for $12.99. And make sure you catch the movie this weekend if you haven’t already!
