DreamWorks Animation has released six character posters from the upcoming holiday film Rise of the Guardians. Based on the popular children’s book, 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). Early word on the film has been great, and I’m eager to see how much of executive producer Guillermo del Toro’s influence comes through in the finished film.
Hit the jump to check out posters for Frost, Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Sandman, and of course some elves, and click here to read Steve’s reaction to seeing the film. Rise of the Guardians opens in 3D on November 21st. [Update: A new clip from the film has also gone online and is included after the jump.]
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.
