A new extended TV spot for DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians has landed online. 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). I was quite taken with the film’s first trailer that played up the magical tone of the story, but this TV spot leans on the more DreamWorks-y humor aspects of the pic, which are a tad less appealing. Nevertheless, I’m still keen on the story and Guillermo del Toro’s involvement as executive producer is most definitely a good sign.
Hit the jump to watch the 90-second TV spot. Rise of the Guardians opens in 3D on November 21st.
Here’s the official 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.
