The kids and I are excited about the upcoming release of Kubo and the Two Strings (review). We loved it when we saw the animated film earlier in the year. We can’t wait to see it again. It’s a really good movie. As I mentioned previously, I went on a set tour at Laika Studios and was very impressed. BTW, one of the people who worked on the special effects for the movie was at our Halloween party last month. Small world. And thanks to Laika Studios and Focus Features, I’m giving away four copies of the movie on my dad blog. Kubo and the Two Strings will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on November 22th.

Kubo and the Two Strings Synopsis
An epic action-adventure 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), Hashi (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.
