Via Nerdist

It’s a tale as old as time: A boy who cares for his sick mother accidentally summons a vengeful spirit and is forced to leave his village and solve the mystery surrounding his famous samurai father, while battling gods and demons with the aid of his magical shamisen, a traditional Japanese instrument. Okay, so maybe it’s not so familiar, but that’s part of what has us so intrigued by Kubo and the Two Strings, Laika and Focus Features’ upcoming action-adventure film set in a fairy tale version of Japan. To say that we’re excited for Kubo and the Two Strings is a bit of an understatement; after all, the film made our list of 15 must-see summer movies. While we still have to wait until August 19 to see the film in theaters, we have a way to make the wait a little less painful. Today, Nerdist has two pieces of exclusive artwork from the upcoming animated adventure, and will continue to unveil more this week in advance of the release of a new trailer on Thursday, April 28 at 8AM PT/11AM ET.

To kick things off, we have a first look at two of the worlds through which Kubo will journey on his quest, the mysterious-sounding The Far Lands and the terrifyingly named The Garden of Eyes.
