A new featurette for DreamWorks Animation’s holiday-centered film Rise of the Guardians has been released. The story revolves around the rebellious Jack Frost (Chris Pine) teaming up with other mythical figures North aka Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), E. Aster Bunnyman aka Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), Tooth aka The Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), and the Sandman (who appears to be a silent character) to battle the evil Pitch (Jude Law). This featurette focuses on the character of Jack Frost, who acts as an audience surrogate in the film as he’s being inaugurated into the world of the Guardians. Though I’ve heard some disappointing things about William Joyce’s source novel, the visuals still look gorgeous and I’m eager to see how the magical story unfolds on the big screen.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. Rise of the Guardians opens in 3D on November 21st.
