This summer some huge, epic action films will be coming to a theater near you, but none of them look like they can hold a candle to Kubo and the Two Strings. The third trailer is here and it shows an adventure on an epic scale we rarely see in movies—and definitely not movies made with stop-motion animation.

Produced by Laika, Kubo and the Two Strings follows a boy who must go on an epic quest to find his father’s armor. He’s joined by an eclectic cast of characters, both human and non-human, voiced by Charlize Theron, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara, George Takei and Matthew McConaughey.

Focus also released some new posters for the film, which capture its epic but whimsical spirit. Beautiful stuff.

The film opens August 19. We can’t wait.
