What could be better than celebrating the holidays with a family film about beloved childhood guardians coming together to protect the world from evil and fear? DreamWorks animation has released the first trailer of upcoming film The Rise of the Guardians set to come out in November 21st, 2012. Directed by Peter Ramsey, the film is sure to be a blockbuster smash featuring Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Alec Baldwin as North (aka Santa Claus), Hugh Jackman as E. Aster Bunnymund, Isla Fisher as Tooth, and Jude Law as the evil Pitch…talk about a great cast!
The official synopsis states:
“When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.”
The trailer shows beautiful scenery and stunning animation. It has a very unique plot and hopefully will become an instant holiday classic. With this cast and new take on a holiday film, I’m beyond excited to see what else DreamWorks will release about the film in the near future. Check back soon for progress as production continues!
For now, watch the trailer below!
