At San Diego Comic-Con, we caught up with LAIKA CEO Travis Knight, as well as directors Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable, and stars Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, and Sir Ben Kingsley to talk about the surprising and inventive process behind The Boxtrolls and LAIKA's LGBTQ representation.Read More

Isaac Hempstead-Wright has a lot to say about the wonders of animation, especially when it comes to his latest project, LAIKA’s The Boxtrolls.

I have a contact gigglefit just from listening to it. (via: MTV) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
