Kubo and the Two Strings is NOW available on DVD/Blu-ray! This is an amazing animation made by stop-motion! Everything you see in the movie is real actual puppets and items! You get lost in the story and forget about how in the world this animation came together! It is a beautiful and breathtaking story that will bring tears to your eyes and inspire some great family conversation! I was provided a free DVD/Blu-ray to review!
Talent and storytelling make a great movie. When you take your family to a movie and afterwards have a list of engaging content that really gets your family to have conversations and tough conversations you know a movie has done it’s job. You all might remember me visiting the amazing sets at LAIKA and interviewing the cast in LA!
There are three main characters in the movie: Kubo, Monkey, and Beetle. The creators of these characters did an amazing job at really making you love each one of them for many different reasons. Their chemistry together was what also makes this movie “entertaining”. There is much more to this movie than just being entertained. It is too deep for me to just say, “it was a great movie!”
I am thrilled to have this movie available on DVD!
