Kubo and the Two Strings

The quest begins


Kubo and the Two Strings
Clever, kindhearted Kubo ekes out a humble living, telling fantastical stories to the people of his seaside town. But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a mythical 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 and Beetle and sets out on a 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 and the evil twin Sisters, to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and claim his heroic destiny. This film is releasing in 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version. Note: despite being animated, this film may be a bit scary for very young children.
