"Kubo and the Two Strings" is scheduled to be released in US theaters on August 19, 2016 in 2D and stereoscopic 3D formats. The stop-motion film is set in a mythological version of Japan, and is essentially conjoining Western and Eastern themes into a heart-warming and colorfully animated journey. Ultimately, Kubo and The Two Strings also mends together the traditional form of stop-motion film and new innovative techniques that have been enabled in part thanks to 3D printing technology. 

Known for their animated films, such as Coraline, the Boxtrolls, and ParaNorman, LAIKA studios has turned to the extensive 3D printing knowledge of Stratasys to help create a puppet for Kubo.
