The Stop-Motion Animated Film Kubo and the Two Strings Looks So Freaking Awesome

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Samurais, guitars, knights, magic—there’s so much cool in the new trailer for Kubo and the Two Strings. The latest film from the team at Laika (Coraline, ParaNorman) opens in August, and with each subsequent look, this movie just gets more and more exciting.

Directed by Travis Knight, Kubo opens on August 19. It tells the story of a young storyteller who accidentally summons an ancient evil and must defeat it while solving the mystery of his legendary samurai uncle. The voice cast is insane, and includes Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes and George Takei.


In addition to this second trailer, there are some new posters too. These are (top to bottom) McConaughey, Theron and Parkinson’s characters, respectively, who team up to go on the adventure.


After this first trailer, and now the second one above, Kubo and the Two Strings is looking like one of the best fantasy adventures of 2016.
