The BOXTROLLS Will Roll at All-American Soap Box Derby

America's iconic FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby holds its 77th annual World Championship finals at Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio on Saturday, July 26th - and characters from the BOXTROLLS movie will be joining the fun, even racing down the track in their own custom-built car. Focus Features, which releases LAIKA's family event movie The BOXTROLLS nationwide on Friday, September 26th, is partnering with the International Soap Box Derby and inviting families attending the World Championship to explore the fantastical world of The BOXTROLLS as an official sponsor of the FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby.

At Derby Downs all day Saturday before the final races, fans will be able to meet the Boxtrolls, view the custom-built car on display, get free BOXTROLLS gear, check out exclusive sneak preview clips from the new movie, and enter the Boxtrolls' fantastical home environment with an immersive photo experience. Following the day's interactive activities, quirky, mischievous creatures Fish, Shoe, and Sparky - in a racer powered by Gravity and steered by the Boxtrolls themselves - will make their inaugural run on the speedway course in an Exhibition race just before the Derby finals, with thousands of fans cheering the group across the finish line.

During the week-long festival, interactive experiences will include Boxtrolls surprises at the Monday, July 21st "Rock the Rec" event and the Thursday, July 24th "Topside Show," at which the stunning custom-built soap box car from the world of the Boxtrolls will be unveiled.

The Boxtrolls join a long line of special guests at the Soap Box Derby in Akron who have included Presidents Nixon and Reagan, Academy Award winners James Stewart and Tom Hanks, and NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt. Thousands of local fans and Visitors cheer racers from around the world who compete in a variety of divisions, integrating science, technology, engineering, and math into an educational curriculum and event series.
