From the trailers this one seems interesting, in terms of the setting and incorporation of Japanese myth / folklore into the "Chosen One" archetype story.

Can't wait to see this, loved all the previous Laika stop motion features, even The Boxtrolls which left me a bit cold on first viewing, and Kubo looks incredible. I really appreciate how all their movies cater to stranger and weirder stories than the often mass marketed / family crowd fluff of stuff like Minions and Pixar movies (don't get me wrong I love Pixar), but are still aimed at a younger audience.
The artwork for the 3D set looks amazing, I hope they don't change it. I may have to have a Coraline-Paranorman-Boxtrolls 3D marathon in the run up to this on blu.

This might be Laika's first true masterpiece. It's sophisticated, deep and heartfelt as well as jaw droppingly beautiful. It didn't hit until later this evening why it was called Kubo and the two strings... Blimey! Not even the blooming pre-teens in my screening could ruin this experience for me. Day one for sure.

So locally I have only found the 3D version in HMV and only one copy at that.
Watched this at home and enjoyed it just as much

I'm going to need a SWAT team ready to mobilize, street level maps covering all of Florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and a fez...!

The 3D version does have a Lenticular slipcover. My local HMV only had the one 3D copy out on the shelves at least.
I am the same as having all the Laika releases with the Lenticular slipcovers
