Rise of the Guardians

Post by laughingoctopus » December 17th, 2011, 1:28 am

No, it isn't a sequel to the stupid (but incredibly well-animated) 2010 film Legend of the Guardians. It's a CGI Dreamworks comedy released on November 21st, 2012. It's about The tooth fairy, easter bunny, Santa and others, teaming up to fight Pitch, the embodiment of nightmares. Check out the first character teaser poster with Santa below.

Saw this on their facebook page yesterday.Sounds interesting. Should the post be moved here instead? Although it is a different name. http://animatedviews.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3737

No. As I said at the beginning of my post, it is in no way related to "Legend of the Guardians".

It's based on a series of books, though only the first is out right now, so judging from that one (which was pretty good, btw), I'd say that they're facing Pitch, the embodiment of nightmares.

This actualy looks...really, really good. DreamWorks just might have something special here.

Awww where is Jack Frost?? Story looks good, still unsure of the character design. Especially Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

I don't know what's bothering people about the designs. I think we are used to seeing wide eyed extreme forms,but to each his own. I personally take a liking to them. This looks really good!

This movie looks awesome as hell. Love the unconventional designs of all the fable creatures. Curious why they didn't show Jack Frost in the trailer, but he must have a minor role or gets killed early or something.

But yeah it looks awesome. The tooth fairy having this humming bird motif as opposed to the usual big puffy pink dress and wings and wand is really cool. And the australian easter bunny owns. And the russian santa having "naughty & nice" tattoos. Can't wait for this!

Really am pumped for this...the voice acting epsecially seems strong here (major kudos to Alec Baldwin for his russian Santa) The imagination in the characters and story is also awesome and shows so much imagination it's a bit frighteneing. I think DreamWorks has a major winner here!
I love all things cinema, from silent movies to world cinema to animated cinema to big blockbusters to documentaries and everything in between!

Looks good. Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire is writing, which gives it a major advantage. I love the unconventional character designs also. This is one movie I think would truly benefit from 3D, just from the trailer alone. It has so much color and fun and imagination.

Seeing the trailer, I now have great hope for the film. I love the Russian, sword-wielding Santa, who somehow reminded me of Captain Nemo (the actual book version). And the Easter Bunny sounds Australian--- nice touch. The darker feel of the trailer suits me better than the poster posted above.
