fourth laika movie

Laika has produced three gorgeous stop-motion features so far: Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls. Now there’s a new one coming, as the fourth Laika movie has been announced as Kubo and the Two Strings. It’s an original story from Paranormal writers Marc Haimes and Chris Butler which the company describes as “a sweeping, swashbuckling adventure set in a mythical ancient Japan.”

As usual, the film is being animated at the company’s home base in Oregon, and is being directed by company founder Travis Knight, who is also producing with Arianne Sutner (ParaNorman). The film uses, as the press release calls it, Laika’s “innovative 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid technique.”
