Kubo and the Two Strings is a 2016 animated family-adventure film directed by Travis Knight, written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, based on Haimes's, and Shannon Tindle's story, and produced by Knight, and Arianne Sutner.


Kubo lives a quiet, normal life in a small shoreside village until a spirit from the past turns his life upside down by re-igniting an age-old vendetta. This causes all sorts of havoc as gods and monsters chase Kubo who, in order to survive, must locate a magical suit of armor once worn by his late father, a legendary Samurai warrior.
