If you’re an Origami fan and animation movie fan, then Kubo and the Two Strings is for you and your family. I have always been amazed at the art that a piece of paper folded over and over again can create.
I learned Origami a long time ago, but if I were to try today I’d fail epically. However it is a magical experience and Kubo and the Two Strings takes the art of Origami to levels never seen or experienced before.
I bid you to join Kubo as he embarks on a magical journey to discover the courage within himself.
As more information is released about Kubo and the Two Strings I will be sharing it here on the blog. So be sure to come back and check it out! Also follow along with the hashtag #KuboMovie to learn even more!
KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS OPENS NATIONWIDE AUGUST 19, 2016
Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Akihiro (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee 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 (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner 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 (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
