First Look at DreamWorks' Animated Fantasy 'Rise of the Guardians'
Yesterday brought the first look at DreamWorks Animation's caveman family The Croods, but today we see their heroic fantasy team in the form of a promotional poster for Rise of the Guardians. Based on the children's book series The Guardians of Childhood. In the story, an evil spirit called Pitch (Jude Law) looks to take over the world by inspiring fear in the hearts of kids everywhere, unless our greatest heroes, Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Jack Frost (Chris Pine), can stop him now. It's The Avengers of our childhood and it looks pretty damn cool!
Here's our first look at Peter Ramsey's Rise of the Guardians via Bleeding Cool:
When an evil spirit called Pitch becomes bent upon taking over the world by inspiring fear in the hearts of kids everywhere, a group of our greatest heroes, Santa (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Jack Frost (Chris Pine), band together for the first time, determined to stand in Pitch’s way. Peter Ramsey (head of story on Monsters vs. Aliens) is directing Rise of the Guardians from a script by the book's author William Joyce and screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire (Inkheart). DreamWorks Animation brings the film to theaters in 3D just before Thanksgiving on November 21st.
