KUBO and The Two Strings

Good day you lovely lot.
At the weekend we were invited to watch KUBO & The Two Strings.
When I saw the posters for the movie I wasn’t too interested but hey … whats that saying “Never judge a book by its cover” or Movie poster in this instance. It’s actually one of the best movies I’ve seen so far this year & I’ve seen A LOT.

Just before the movie there was fun in the foyer and a little quiz when we got into the screen.
My son held his little hand up and the host asked him a question to win a prize “What is the name of the magical instrument that Kubo plays in the movie?” … “A guitar” Hayden said and it was correct.
So proud of my little 4-year-old.
He loves his t-shirt!

The Story

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.


This movie has absolutely stunning visuals an incredible storyline, perfect twist which I kind of expected but wasn’t too sure if I was right or not. And a brilliant meaning behind the film of family legacy and Japanese folklore. I actually couldn’t fault it it’s truly brilliant. If you/your kids love Coraline, BoxTrolls or even ParaNorman like we do you’ll absolutely love Kubo.
I have to admit it’s not as dark as Coraline which is a good thing (lets admit it, that film was weird) but there were some creepy bit’s which I find added great goodness to the movie. I’d happily watch this movie over and over.
My son is now obsessed with Kubo and his magic guitar.
