Rise Of The Guardians is a new 3D fantasy animation. The story kicks off with Pitch the Nightmare King (voiced by Jude Law), who plans to enrapture the world in complete darkness.
This catches the attention of the Guardians (make-believe children’s characters/world protectors) who, erm, rise against the evil. So, Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Tooth Fairy (Isla fisher) and the Easter bunny (Hugh Jackman) join forces to fight Pitch before he destroys the world.
Guillermo del Toro is an executive producer and should add a darkly creative streak to the proceedings.
Rise… is based on William Joyce’s The Guardian Of The Childhood book series and will open just before Christmas (30 November 2012, to be precise) to get everyone in the festive mood.
