Kubo and the Two Strings is in theaters today! It is an epic stop motion picture. I wish everyone knew the time, hard work and detail put into this stop motion animation. It is simply amazing! I can’t wait to take my son to see this action-adventure. LAIKA has really out done themselves and I expect this movie to receive many awards.
Take your whole family to see the movie but I do caution for kids 8-10 and under. It does have some scarier parts in it for younger children but it is absolutely very family friendly. I plan to take my 11 year old son and I know he will absolutely love it.
Be sure you check out our interviews: Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron on Kubo and the Two Strings. Don’t forget about our set tour for Kubo and the Two Strings at Laika Studios. I was able to send one of my writers and she said it was simply amazing the detail and craftsmanship that goes in to creating the movie.

Crafting an Epic Clip
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.
