From CORALINE to KUBO: A Magical Laika Experience — Photos of Exhibit Featuring Props, Models, and More
Last Friday, Joey and I had the chance to visit the Universal Studios lot and see an early press screening of Laika's new stop-motion film Kubo and the Two Strings. The film is a stunner, a timeless story with wonderful characters and a truly classic adventure vibe to it (you'll be able to read Joey's review in the next few days), but the big draw for us was an exhibit set up inside the theme park's Globe Theater that housed a ton of props, models, and artwork from all of the films the company has made so far. It's called From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical Laika Experience, and if you're in the L.A. area between now and August 14th and you get a chance to visit Universal Studios, make sure you stop in and check it out.
Joey took our Facebook friends on a tour of the exhibit that you can watch in the video below, but if you're looking for some closer shots of what the event has to offer, check out these photos (all taken by Amy Pearson). Trivia: I overheard one of the guides in the exhibit mention that some of these models — which were all actually used in the movies, by the way — cost $80,000 each!
Kubo and the Two Strings hits theaters on August 19, 2016.
