New Character Posters for DreamWorks Animation’s RISE OF THE GUARDIANS

A few new character posters for the upcoming DreamWorks Animation film Rise of the Guardians.  The adventure story centers on a group of heroes who must join forces to protect “the hopes, beliefs and imagination of the children all over the world.” The twist is that the heroes are Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman, the Tooth Fairy and Jack Frost.  I was a big fan of the film’s first trailer, and I’m eager to see what the full story involves.  Though knee-jerk reaction to the premise would be to expect an action-comedy featuring all these “zany” characters ribbing each other in between fights, author, co-writer and co-director William Joyce looks to have brought a great deal of heart, wonder and whimsy to the pic.

Hit the jump to check out the character posters.  The film features the voices of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude LawRise of the Guardians opens on November 21st.

Here’s the synopsis for Rise of the Guardians:

RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is an epic and magical adventure that tells the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost – legendary characters with previously unknown extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere.
