Rise of The Guardians

Interesting. Dunno if I'm digging it or not. Iffy...this could go bad but possibly good as well...

EDIT: Here's the cast. Really dig the cast for characters.

Chris Pine as Jack Frost
Isla Fisher as Tooth (Tooth Fairy)
Hugh Jackman as E. Aster Bunnymund (Easter Bunny)
Alec Baldwin as Nicholas St. North (Santa Claus)
Jude Law as Pitch, the Nightmare King (The Boogeyman)
Dakota Goyo as Jamie

At least it's being released in time for the holidays. I think it should do well.

This could go either way, but I love the premise.

Legend of the Guardians.

Sounds too close and people might get them mixed up or think it's a sequel.

I was hoping it was a sequel to the owl movie. I actually liked that.

I think so too.

Re: Rise of The Guardians

Where's the raccoon with the machine gun?


Way too many "guardians" out there.

It looks okay but I'd like to think there are better animation projects to spend millions of dollars on.

Re: Rise of The Guardians

So it's The Avengers, but with fairy tale characters rather than comic book characters.
