— Notes —
- “Kubo and the Two Strings Is A SEQUEL!? – Gaijin Goombah” and “White Washing in Kubo and the Two Strings!? – Reactionary vs Subtlety” by Gaijin Goombah on Youtube —- While we don’t agree all the opinions presented in these videos, they do an excellent job demonstrating the cultural specificity present in Kubo‘s narrative.
- “‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ Director Travis Knight on Akira Kurosawa’s Influence and Studio Ghibli’s Legacy” by Jordan Raup —- Here’s a decent interview we found in which Travis Knight discusses some of their process in creating Kubo‘s story.
