Clever, kind-hearted Kubo (Art Parkinson, 'Game of Thrones', 'Dracula Untold') ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town. Each day, the villagers gather round to hear young Kubo’s tales illustrated with bewitched origami figures that dance and come to life when he plays his magical two-string shamisen. Transfixed by his lyrical tales and colourful flying figurines, the townspeople always beg for one more story before he hurries home to his mother at sunset.

One day, Kubo ignores his mother’s warnings and stays out at night. 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 unlikely companions Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McCounaghey), setting 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.
