Rise of the Guardians 3D (Rise of the Guardians 3D)
Special Screening - Doha Tribecca Film Festival 2012
You probably thought Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman and Jack Frost were just imaginary, cheerful purveyors of chocolates and toys, cosy dreams and cold toes, didn’t you? This eagerly anticipated animated 3D adventure, based on William Joyce’s immensely popular ‘The Guardians of Childhood’ book series, tells the real story. These characters are champions of innocence who protect the world’s children against fear itself, keeping their hopes, beliefs and imagination safe and sound. When Pitch, the Nightmare King, hatches an evil plan, Jack Frost enlists the help of his warrior guardian friends and they join forces to stop Pitch from engulfing the world in terrible darkness. Featuring the voices of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law, ‘Rise of the Guardians’ reawakens our faith in the abiding power of some dearly loved legends.
