Rise Of The Guardians Is Like A Justice League Of Holiday Heroes – Check Out The Poster

I was sitting on this for a moment, but it appears to be cropping up elsewhere now, so here it is, ahead of schedule: a good look at Dreamworks’s Rise of the Guardians. To set it up, here’s a blurb:

When an evil spirit called Pitch becomes bent upon taking over the world by inspiring fear in the hearts of kids everywhere, a group of our greatest heroes — Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost — band together for the first time, determined to stand in Pitch’s way. More than a collection of storybook subjects, The Guardians are also a band of superheroes, who possess their own special powers. Now joined in opposition of a common foe, the Guardians heed the call and combine their powers to defeat Pitch and protect the world from his campaign of fear.

The film is based on the book by William Joyce, who I think is tremendous. This book… I don’t know, however. Time to hunt it down.

Amongst the voice cast are Alec Baldwin as North, the Santa type; Chris Pine as Jack Frost; Hugh Jackman as Bunnymud, the rep for Easter; Isla Fisher as Tooth, a fairy; and Jude Law as Pitch.

Previously: North’s crossed and tattooed arms. And a poster for The Croods, another upcoming Dreamworks toon.
