Yep, you read that right. I did not mistype the title nor is my mental state altered in any way beyond my usual and customary instability.
Rise of the Guardians is a CGI animated film from Dreamworks about a group of heroes with extraordinary abilities who band together to fight a common foe bent on conquering the world through fear. If it sounds familiar, you might want to check out the trailer because it’s not quite what you thought! I’ve only seen trailers, but I’m pretty sure there aren’t any bunnies in The Avengers!
RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is an epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.
It’s an animated feature, but there is no shortage of star power. Doing the voices of the main characters are Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Alec Baldwin as North (Santa), Hugh Jackman as Bunnymund, Isla Fisher as Tooth and Jude Law as Pitch (the big bad). Rise of the Guardians is currently scheduled for a November 21, 2012 release.
