Adapted from the first three in the fifteen-book series written by Kathryn Lasky, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole has been transformed into a 3D CGI animation by the visionary director of Watchmen, Zack Snyder.
With the voice talents of Jim Sturgess, Ryan Kwanten, Emilie de Ravin, Hugo Weaving, Sam Neill, Helen Mirren and countless other big names, is it possible to not be full of sheer, mind-numbing excitement?!
We follow Soren, a young barn owl, who is kidnapped by the owls of St. Aggie's - an orphanage ruled by wicked rulers. Escaping with his newly-formed friends, the group flee to the island of Ga'Hoole where they attempt to assist the noble, wise owls to defeat the evil rulers.
Judging by both trailers released, we're in for a treat. Below is the most recent of the two, giving a furthered insight into the extensive and downright impressive animation and sequences which unfold.
The film will be released in the US on the 24th of September, and the 15th of October for the UK.
