“With the release of Kubo and the Two Strings, it is a perfect moment to go back in time and see the evolution of stop-motion animation throughout the years.” 

Kubo and Two Strings is the recent film to utilize the animation style, which entails manipulating a puppet or prop frame by frame to give the illusion of movement when viewed in sequence. Originally used to create fantastical elements before the advent of computer imagery, it’s now the basis for numerous films, such as The Little Prince and Nightmare Before Christmas. (theverge.com)
