rise_of_the_guardians_ver8Kicking off the holiday season in a big way today, RISE OF THE GUARDIANS reimagines Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, Jack Frost, The Tooth Fairy and The Sandman as superhereos pitted against an evil force known as The Boogeyman. It’s high-concept meets high-art and (in the 3D version we saw) is a true delight to watch. Based on the Award-winning children’s book by WILLIAM JOYCE, produced by GUILLERMO DEL TORO and directed by PETER RAMSEY the all-star voice cast includes ALEC BALDWIN, CHRIS PINE, HUGH JACKMAN, ISLA FISHER and JUDE LAW. At the New York press conference held to promote the film’s release, star ALEC BALDWIN (no stranger to voicing animated characters) talked about finding the right voice for the granddaddy of holiday icons.
