Kubo and the Two Strings – Movie and Origami Light Set Review


Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA.

More bout Kubo and the Two Strings

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.

The animation studio of Laika has produced films such as Coraline, BoxTrolls, ParaNorman and now Kubo and the Two Strings. I enjoyed everyone of them and can’t wait to see their future movies.
We also received this beautiful Origami light set with my movie. They are so pretty and the girls love that I hung them in their room. Each light is covered with a cute origami bird. It doubles up as a night light at night, and a pretty decoration during the day.
This is such a great movie, and would make a great stocking stuffer this holiday season. My granddaughters loved this movie, they both sat so still during the entire thing. Trust me that’s a big compliment when it comes to getting the youngest to sit still.
