The fourth animated feature from LAIKA was recently announced. The film is titled Kubo and the Two Strings. LAIKA also released a gorgeous new teaser for the film.

Set in ancient Japan, the film is a “sweeping, swashbuckling adventure.”

We received this official summary:

In the epic fantasy, scruffy, kindhearted Kubo ekes out a humble living while devotedly caring for his mother in their sleepy shore-side 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.

The film is being directed by Travis Knight. The original screenplay was written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler. Voice cast includes Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, George Takei, Rooney Mara, and Ralph Fiennes.

Kubo and the Two Strings opens in U.S. theaters on August 19th, 2016. Check out the film’s official website and like it on Facebook.
