The plot follows the ‘guardians’ (Jack Frost, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and the Easter Bunny, who you may recognise from your favourite fairy tale books) as they join together to destroy an enemy threatening Earth (Pitch, also known as the Boogeyman). The film is set for release on November the 21st and I would say that it was just in time for the Christmas season, which we all know will probably start ringing in our ears from the end of August.
It's difficult to give you more details about this film at this stage, as no one has actually critiqued or seen it yet, we'll just have to wait to find out more. However, Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy), Executive Producer for this film, describes it as “a superhero movie where the superheroes get their powers from belief” . As it's a DreamWorks production I imagine we can expect some pretty cute characters, wide eyed and bushy tailed, with some funny wise cracks in between... which is never a bad thing! If you want to read more about the film you can have a look at the actors and film crew interviews in the Telegraph and Hollywood Reporter.
So for fans of DreamWorks animation, if you're looking for films to add to the "must watch" list, it looks like you've got your Christmas cinema trip sorted!
