When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
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.
Kubo is trying to speak to his ancestors when using the lanterns. The light is behind him, yet there is also light shinning directly into his eyes from a source in front of him. See more »
If you must blink, do it now. Pay careful attention to everything you see and hear, no matter how unusual it may seem. And please be warned: If you fidget, if you look away, if you forget any part of what I tell you - even for an instant - then our hero will surely perish.
His name is Kubo. His grandfather stole something from him. And that really is the least of it.

At the end of the closing credits, the Laika production logo displays tributes to its previous films:
Really disappointed. While the movie excels in visuals and animation department, it is let down by the weak writing/story. The dialogues have no impact, the conversations between monkey and the Beetle could have been so good, and it TRIES so hard to be funny and yet falls flat. They are just, naive. That's the best word to describe them. Naive. Immature. They seem to have been written by a 12 year old.
The story is ambiguous. It's a fight between good and evil yet it doesn't take one definite theme. What is the Evil after? What does the good stand for in this particular instance? It seems all the resources for the movie were spent on the animation with little to spare for the story and dialogues. The worst thing is its a little too mature for kids, yet not enough to engage an adult. So much potential, wasted.
