Set sail for adventure with one boy, his talking Monkey and a Man-Beetle/Thing in the new trailer for Kubo And The Two Strings. Join Kubo on a treacherous quest to retrieve his father’s magical Samurai Amour. He’ll have to face Gods, Ghosts and Monsters along the way if he’s to achieve his destiny. Kubo has been created by the talented crew at Laika who are currently leading the way in stop motion animation. With the past success of their previous outings such as Coraline, ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls, it’s clear casting isn’t a problem as this film stars the likes of Rooney MaraCharlize TheronMatthew McConaughey and George Takei… Oh My! After recruiting Isaac Hempstead Wright (Game of Thrones) as the lead in The Boxtrolls, they’ve opted for another Stark boy with Art Parkinson playing Kubo.Kubo-and-the-two-strings-Laika-05This trailer is a brilliant example of a great track cut to stunning visuals using a captivating rendition of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”.  I think this will be the kind of classic tale both adults and children alike can lose themselves in.

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS, in cinemas August 2016.
