Discover the Adventure in a Fourth 'Kubo and the Two Strings' Trailer
"Do you ever say anything encouraging…?" "I encourage you not to die." Focus Features has released yet another new trailer for Laika's stop-motion animated adventure titled Kubo and the Two Strings, which arrives in theaters this August. Yes, this is the fourth official trailer. Do we really need another one after three other gorgeous trailers? Not really, but why not, if it makes more people excited to see this movie. Art Parkinson voices Kubo, and the full voice cast includes Rooney Mara, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa & George Takei. I'm still crazy excited to see this, I think it looks awesome, and I'm counting down the days until it arrives in theaters. Fire it up below.
Here's the fourth 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.
