A sweeping, swashbuckling adventure set in a mythical
ancient Japan, with an all-star voice cast. In the epic
fantasy from animation studio LAIKA, scruffy,
kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of 'Game of
Thrones') ekes out a humble living while devotedly
caring for his mother in their sleepy shoreside village.
It is a quiet existence-until a spirit from the past
catches up with him to enforce an age-old vendetta.
Suddenly on the run from gods and monsters, Kubo's
chance for survival rests on finding the magical suit of
armor once worn by his fallen father, the greatest
samurai the world has ever known. Summoning
courage, Kubo embarks on a thrilling odyssey as he
faces his family's history, navigates the elements, and
bravely fights for the earth and the stars.
