Kubo and the Two Strings wish YOU a Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother’s. We all have them. And we owe them a lot. Sometimes all they want is a little peace and quiet. Sometimes all they want is to be appreciated and acknowledged. Like any other child sometimes Kubo doesn’t want to be seen letting mom scrub his face or kiss him in public. But since it’s Mother’s Day, just this once, Kubo is going to indulge his mom. Be good to your mom on Mother’s Day (and every other day of the year).
From LAIKA and Focus Features, Kubo and the Two Strings wishes you and all of the heroic Moms in your life a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Akihiro (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
