Kubo mothers day


In the thrilling new movie, clever and kindhearted Kubo is sustained by the strong and magical powers of a mother’s love. Join Kubo on his epic quest to reunite family, uncover his legacy, and choose adventure in Kubo and the Two Strings, opening in theaters nationwide August 19, 2016!

Focus Features will release the new movie from animation studio LAIKA nationwide on August 19, 2016. This preview made me sit on the edge of my seat I can’t imagine how great the entire movie will be.  Although it appears to be something that I wouldn’t normally watch, I have it marked on the calendar for a must watch movie. 

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.

Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. From empty nesters to living with our oldest and 2 grandchildren while our house is rebuilt after a house fire in 10/2018 my life is something new each day.

this looks good with really great cast


Looks interesting and a bit deeper than most of the children’s selections.

I watched the trailer and read your review. Thanks for being honest, In my opinion, this cartoon might be a little too deep for younger kids to watch.
