There are many messages in the new animated adventure Kubo and the Two Strings. But, the one that stood out the most to Charlize Theron, who lends her voice to two characters in the film, is about non-traditonal families.
Theron, who is the adoptive mother of two African-American children, told HipHollywood that she loved how the film displayed that there are many different types of families.
“There’s a part of this movie, when you get to the third act that really showcases that family doesn’t always look they way we think family should look,” explained Theron. “And I think that is something so needed in the world right now.”
In the film, Kubo, a young boy with a magical gift for spinning folded origami, accidentally summons a vengeful spirit from the past, and gets a little help finding his way back home from Monkey (Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey).
McConaughey, who also has three small children, told us he enjoyed being able to think and act like a kid again for his role. “I loved getting to think like a kid with Beetle, because he is a big kid,” explained the Oscar-winning actor. “He’s fiercely loyal, goofy, a warrior in his own mind, a lost samurai that needs a quest, and here it comes.”
Kubo and the Two Strings hits theaters Aug 19th.
