Jack Frost, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman, St Nicolas (Father Christmas), The Tooth Fairy and a bad-bad guy Pitch Black – what else can you ask for?
Rise of the Guardians is a 2012 American 3D computer-animated fantasy film based on William Joyce‘s The Guardians of Childhood book series and The Man in the Moon short film by Joyce and Reel FX. (source: Wikipedia)
The movie is set about 200 years after the book series. The official site describes the plot as follows:
“Rise of the Guardians is an epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. 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.” —Rise of the Guardians official site
Just a thought – perhaps Jack Frost will be a good match for Elsa from Frozen?
Fun fact: There is a whole book series written by William Joyce on which The Rise of the Guardians have been based on, explaining the origin of each character in depth. The book series is called – The Guardians of Childhood.
