Warner Bros. has released a new featurette/behind the scenes clip from Zack Snyder’s Legends of the Guardians. The clip features Zack and Debbie Snyder (his wife and producer of the film) talking about the story, the different owls in the movie, and the clip also incorporates new footage not seen in the trailer.
While some might not be excited for Zack Snyder’s first foray into animation, I’ve probably watched the trailer a dozen times and cannot wait to see the movie. I think almost every frame looks like a painting come to life and I even love the use of the song Kings and Queens from 30 Seconds to Mars. Hit the jump to watch the clip:

Fantasy Adventure. Acclaimed filmmaker Zack Snyder makes his animation debut with the fantasy family adventure based on the beloved The Guardians of Ga’Hoole books by Kathryn Lasky. The film follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father’s epic stories of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion, and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father’s favor from his younger sibling. But Kludd’s jealousy has terrible consequences–causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians of Ga’Hoole–Soren’s only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.
