Attended a late night showing of Kubo and the Two Strings last night (9/18/16) at the Ward Theater.

This movie blends animation, fantasy, adventure and several touches of humor along the way, that tells the story of a young storyteller named Kubo who has an interesting but conflicted family background. His dad is a samurai warrior leader and his mom a moon sprit. Trouble is the rest of his mom side of the family don't like the dad nor Kubo. Since they are all moon sprits they only cause Kubo trouble at night.

There is a quest to get three objects to stop the moon sprits and Kubo is aided by three magical (and of course conflicted) characters.
