Clever, kind-hearted Kubo (Art Parkinson, Game of Thrones, Dracula Untold) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town. Each day, the villagers gather round to hear young Kubo’s tales illustrated with bewitched origami figures that dance and come to life when he plays his magical two-string shamisen. Transfixed by his lyrical tales and colourful flying figurines, the townspeople always beg for one more story before he hurries home to his mother at sunset.
One day, Kubo ignores his mother’s warnings and stays out at night. His relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidently 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 unlikely companions Monkey (Theron) and Beetle (McConaughey), setting 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 magical shamisen and friends, Kubo must battle gods and monsters - among them the vengeful Moon King (Fiennes) and his malevolent aunts, the evil twin Sisters (Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.
The visual splendor and dazzling animation beckons audiences to listen closely to Kubo’s absorbing story. Filled with something for all ages, feel the only thing that ambitious animation can inspire – wonder – in Kubo and the Two Strings, available to own on 3D, Blu-rayTM, DVD and Digital from November 30, 2016.
