Kubo (Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) is a village storyteller who needs to support his sick mother. Using his magical Shamisen (Traditional Japanese string instrument), his Origami papers transform into puppets to tell the adventures of the most powerful samurai, Hanzo, his father.
He accidentally summons evil spirits who enforce an age-old vendetta against him. He joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to find his late father’s magic armor and sword.
With his magical shamisen – Kubo battles with the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil Twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to discover his secret legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
