Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo is about family and the power of stories. The movie intertwines these themes just perfectly. The setting in feudal Japan and the fantastic elements make it whole. I especially loved the finale and the role of Kubo‘s magical shamisen in it. In addition to that, Laika seems to have perfected the art of combining stop-motion and 3D animation. Even in contrast to their amazing earlier works like Coraline or ParaNorman, Kubo and the Two Strings looks just stunning.
