Kubo and the Two Strings Movie Trailer

Thanks to Laika here’s the first official trailer of Kubo and the Two Strings, the upcoming adventure fantasy 3D stop-motion animated movie directed by Travis Knight:


On every hero’s journey there is the path you choose to follow
or the one you choose to make.

Plot synopsis:
“Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) and Kamekichi (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 (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (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 (Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Rooney Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.”

The animation looks amazing! Laika Studio is back to the top of its game, it reminds me of how awesome Coraline was.

Anyway, there’s also a new teaser poster:
