Rise Of The Guardians gets a new trailer.
DreamWorks Animation has released the second full-length trailer for the animated epic adventure Rise of the Guardians. The film is based on the children’s books authored by William Joyce (who also co-wrote the script).
Rise Of The Guardians puts an interesting twist on traditional childhood figures like the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost, and the Sandman. The characters join forces as the ‘Guardians’, and use their special powers to fight against the evil spirit Pitch, who threatens childhood dreams and the world. It wouldn’t be crazy to consider this film the family-friendly version of The Avengers.
Although the second Rise of The Guardians trailer focuses more on the plot, it still has the stunning visuals of the first. Most notably is the manipulation of Sandman’s abilities which should be really impressive in the 3D big screen version.
Directed by Peter Ramsey in his feature debut, the animated adventure boasts a ton of well known actors lending their voices to the piece. Hugh Jackman voices the boomerang throwing Easter Bunny (E. Aster Bunnymund), Alec Baldwin speaks as the tattooed Santa Claus (North), Jude Law takes on the voice of the villain Pitch, and Chris Pine plays the voice of Jack Frost
DreamWorks’ Rise of the Guardians hits U.S. cinemas on November 21st, 2012. Enjoy the second trailer below:
