Elle Fanning Tells Us About 'The Boxtrolls' and Clears Up Those Dakota Rumors

Pin It
Elle Fanning may be just 16 years old, but she's already building quite the resume.

We got to talk with Elle about her 3D stop motion animated film, The Boxtrolls. Based on the novel "Here Be Monsters!" by Alan Snow, it tells the story of an orphan boy named Eggs who was raised by trash-collecting trolls. The Boxtrolls have a bad reputation, and Eggs must find a way to save his family from an evil exterminator.

"I've known about Laika (stop-motion animated studio) because my sister [Dakota] did Coraline," the actress told us. "I visited Portland and the sets when she went up there and when Boxtrolls came, they already knew of me cause of my sister." Talk about family connections.

Watch the clip (above) to hear Elle tell us about her childhood fears and give us her take on a crazy rumor she heard about her and her older sis Dakota.

The Boxtrolls will be out in theaters on September 26.
