My how things have changed. I remember a time when Jack Frost was an evil little imp responsible for winter, killing trees on a yearly basis and gave you hypothermia if you didn’t wrap up properly in the snow. In the short space of time that it took to turn me from a cynical child into a cynical adult, Dreamworks has re-written the story of Jack Frost, melting his sub-zero temperature and re-dressing him as a cool, superhero kid.
“RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is an epic and magical adventure that tells the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost – legendary characters with previously unknown extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere.”
Directed by Peter Ramsey, Rise of the Guardians is an adaptation of William Joyce’s book series, The Guardians of Childhood. The voice cast includes Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Jude Law, Isla Fisher, Alec Baldwin, and Dakota Goyo. With an all star voice cast, it’s magical visual style and non-denominational specific Winter message, it’s bound to be a hit
Christmas Winter movie, destined to be repeated on TV for years to come.
Rise of the Guardians will arrive well in time for Christmas in 3D on 21st November in the USA and 30th November in the UK.
