KUBO And The Two Strings opens in theaters August 19th!
The big day is almost here, I’ve been talking about it for months! KUBO And The Two Strings is set to release on August 19th and it is going to be amazing! I’ve spoken before about my visit to LAIKA Studios, where I had the chance to interview Director Travis Knight and check out the behind the scenes makings of the film. Earlier last month, I had the chance to interview the talent and screen the film. I can not wait to share it with you all! However, you will have to wait. Until then, enjoy these two NEW featurettes!
Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
