Martin Sheen and J.K. Simmons star in a Boxcar feature film premiering May 8


The Boxcar Children - Surprise Island

On the heels of the series’ 75th Anniversary, the beloved Boxcar Children are headed to the silver screen! The new animated feature film, THE BOXCAR CHILDREN - SURPRISE ISLAND, hits theaters nationwide for a special one-day event on May 8.

Starring Golden Globe-winning actor Martin Sheen, Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, Dane DeHaan, Joey King, Carter, Gil Birmingham, Griffin Gluck, Stephen Stanton, and Talitha Bateman, THE BOXCAR CHILDREN - SURPRISE ISLAND follows the adventures of the orphaned Boxcar Children as they spend an entire summer living on their Grandfather’s small, nearly uninhabited island. There they meet Joe, who is friendly and helpful, and inexplicably living on their land. Does their new friend have a secret?

The exciting after-school screening event on May 8 is a partnership between Fathom Events, Shout! Kids, and Legacy Classics, taking place in nearly 700 select theaters throughout the country. Attendees will see an exclusive introduction with actor Griffin Gluck and Director Dan Chuba explaining the process of adapting and animating the book for film. Tickets can be purchased online or at participating theater box offices.
