Kubo and the Two Strings

This movie was beautiful in all aspects of the word. From the art to the story to the soundtrack, Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic tale with a heartfelt theme for all ages and generations. 
Kubo is a storyteller with one eye who knows very little of his father and the events that led to his birth. 

His mother tells him stories, but she also gives him rules: don't stay out past sundown, and always take the monkey charm with you. 

Kubo entertains the crowd at the local village with exciting and entertaining stories of Hanzo the samurai and his battle against the Moon King, but his stories never end. Each day the crowd listens to the tales eagerly as Kubo's magic origami figures perform. 
Longing to know more of his father, Kubo seeks answers. One night, in an attempt to speak with his father, he stays out past sundown. 
This one act sends Kubo on a quest of his own: his own story, to protect himself from the Moon King. 
With Monkey, Beetle and his own origami companions, Kubo writes his own story, and he learns about what truly matters.
I recommend this film to anyone and everyone, especially fans of The Little Prince. 

I give it five out of five origami birds.
