Kubo and the Two Strings: Covering a Classic Featurette #KuboMovie
In celebration of LAIKA and Focus Features film KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS opening nationwide, I'm sharing the "Covering a Classic" featurette video clip.
"Covering a Classic" shares more about the music in the film, the shamisen, the magical musical instrument and include commentary from director Travis Knight, actors Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey, and more!
Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan. Take a behind-the-scenes look at the film by watching more clips and featurettes including:
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.
Director: Travis Knight
Writers: Marc Haimes and Chris Butler (“ParaNorman”)
