Kubo And The Two Strings - Trailer 2

A NEW trailer has been released for Kubo And The Two Strings, the epic animated action-adventure from AIKA, the studio behind Coraline, ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls.

Directed by Travis Knight and featuring an all-star voice cast including Academy Award winners Matthew McConaughey and Charlize Theron; Academy Award nominees Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, and Brenda Vaccaro; and Art Parkinson, who plays Rickon Stark in Game of Thrones, provides the voice for the title character of Kubo.

Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kind-hearted Kubo 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 (Theron) and Beetle (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 (Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfil his heroic destiny.

Kubo & The Two Strings will release in UK cinemas on September 9, 2016.
