As explained in the trailer for this upcoming animated action adventure film, the protagonists of Rise of the Guardians go by many names and take many forms. They bring wonder, hope, joy and dreams. And they take their job to protect the children of the world very, very seriously.
Who are they? They are the Sandman, Jack Frost (Chris Pine), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin). Their powers are greater than we ever imagined. As long as children believe in them, these Guardians will guard the children with their own lives.
Which is a good thing, because when an evil spirit known as Pitch, the Nightmare King (Jude Law) throws down the gauntlet and brings the world into “total darkness,” the immortal Guardians must join forces against him. Offering a creative and original look at some very familiar childhood figures, Rise of the Guardians is a visually thrilling, epic adventure.
Directed by Peter Ramsey and written by David Lindsay-Abaire, this DreamWorks Animation production is set for release on November 21, 2012 in 3D and digital 2D. Also features Dakota Goyo as Jamie, a child whose belief in the guardians has faltered.
