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:

Rise of the Guardians - Promo Poster

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.

  • The kid looks EXACTLY like King Jeoffrey from Game of Thrones.

    Despite being excited for this, Im just not a big fan of the character design.
    • Danimal
      Just about to say the same thing. Very amateur looking designs.

    I was about to say the kid looks exactly like Joffrey Lannister

    This looks...odd. This isn't the final poster, right? I'm not exactly knocking it, but it looks like a bad video game.
    • No, as it says in the opening paragraph, it's just a promotional poster. That's why the date is so hastily pasted in the lower corner.
    • Max Renn
      Yeah, the characters all have that annoying smirk which graced a thousand US-designed console game cart boxes in the 1990s.
  • Mdiddles
    Apparently Santa dyes his eyebrows
  • Artman91
    i agree about the weird eye brows....and who is that kid in the bottom corner. cool concept, not very good character design.
  • Me
    is this a game?
  • Bk
    This looks like it was animated in the 1980s. Character designs are worse than awful.
  •  I'll watch it.
  • Characters don't look appealing to me. Looks like they outsourced it to some Eastern European animation company or something.
  • redskulllives
    santa reminds me of sean connery
