Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Please get cozy with whatever warm beverage brings you the most comfort, because for their first ever animated film episode, Lisha and Jules have chosen possibly one of the most heart-wrenching animated films created to date: Travis Knight's 2016 masterpiece, Kubo and the Two Strings! Settle in with some loved ones and listen as Lisha explains exactly why Kubo ranks amongst her top nine films of all time (yeah, top nine, she knows what she said), hear Jules struggle to come to terms with her feelings about Beetle/Beatles while being smart about animation, and get a healthy dose of your podcasters getting annoyed about precisely ONE THING about this movie, really (can we maybe not whitewash roles? Guys? Hello?). Don't blink; there's lots of story here, in the first episode of an all-animated movie month!
