Another Awesome New Trailer for Laika's 'Kubo and the Two Strings'
"Claim your birthright, Kubo. Give this story a happy ending." Focus Features has unveiled a third and final trailer for Laika's latest stop-motion adventure Kubo and the Two Strings. The more we see from this, the more I have to say - this looks so freakin' awesome, I cannot wait to see it. The story behind Kubo and the entire world they've created for this is amazing. Even the way he uses his guitar to make things happen, and all the crazy cool shots in this, it's all impressive. Art Parkinson voices Kubo, and the full cast includes Rooney Mara, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa & George Takei. This is seriously one of my most anticipated movies coming up this year. Enjoy.
Here's the final official trailer for Laika's Kubo and the Two Strings, from Focus Features' YouTube:
In the epic fantasy, scruffy, kindhearted Kubo ekes out a humble living while devotedly caring for his mother in their sleepy shoreside village. It is a quiet existence – until a spirit from the past catches up with him to enforce an age-old vendetta. Suddenly on the run from gods and monsters, Kubo's chance for survival rests on finding the magical suit of armor once worn by his fallen father, the greatest samurai the world has ever known. Summoning courage, Kubo embarks on a thrilling odyssey as he faces his family’s history, navigates the elements, and bravely fights for the earth and the stars. Kubo and the Two Strings is directed by animation producer Travis Knight, who produced ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls for Laika previously, now making his feature directing debut. The screenplay was written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler. Focus Features will release Kubo and the Two Strings starting on August 19th, 2016 this summer.
