Rise of the Guardians

After a series of character-centric teaser posters, Dream­Works Animation’s Rise of the Guardians released a new pre-release poster. Fea­tur­ing all the major char­ac­ters from the film, the poster instills a sort of ani­mated Avengers team of super-heroes feel with it’s “Leg­ends Unite” tag line.

The film is directed by Peter Ram­sey and co-directed by William Joyce, based on his series of books. The film The Fan­tas­tic Fly­ing Books of Mr. Mor­ris Less­more won an Oscar for best ani­mated short was based on another of Joyce’s stories.

The film, which does not release until Novem­ber 21, 2012, will be hon­ored at the 16th Annual Hol­ly­wood Film Awards with the Hol­ly­wood Ani­ma­tion Award on Oct. 22 at the Bev­erly Hilton. The Hol­ly­wood Ani­ma­tion Award hon­ors the year’s best ani­mated film; pre­vi­ous win­ner include Rata­touille (2007), Wall-E (2008), Up (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010) and Rango (2011). While not all win­ners go on to win the Best Ani­mated Fea­ture at the Oscars, tak­ing the Hol­ly­wood Ani­ma­tion Award goes a long way to increas­ing the chances of a win espe­cially for an unre­leased film.

Rise of the Guardians is an epic adven­ture that tells the story of a group of heroes — each with extra­or­di­nary abil­i­ties. When an ancient 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 world’s five unlike­li­est heroes– Jack Frosty, North (aka Santa), Bun­ny­mund (the Easter Bunny), Tooth (the Tooth Fairy) and Sandy (the Sand­man)- must band together to stop Pitch (the Boogey­man) from plung­ing the world into eter­nal darkness.
