Watch: The Latest 'Kubo and the Two Strings' Trailer is Fantastic


Universal Picture UK released a new trailer for the new LAIKA stop-motion film, Kubo and the Two Strings. In this video, you will find some gorgeous sets and character animation, epic action scenes, humour, and you'll hear Charlize Theron's Monkey, as well as Matthew MacConaughey's Beetle. Watch the fantastic trailer below.


Here's what LAIKA has to say about the film:
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. 
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.
Kubo and the Two Strings is directed by Travis Knight and will arrive in US theaters on 19th August; 9th September in the UK.
