Kubo and the Two Strings is an all new action-adventure epic from LAIKA studios. In the stop-motion animated feature, Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) earns his living telling stories to the people of his fantastical, seaside Japanese town.

Together they take on gods and monsters, including the Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara) as Kubo unlocks the secrets of his past and fulfills his heroic destiny.

Kubo and the Two Strings was written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler and was directed by Travis Knight.
