Although Brave failed to meet expectations, I’m quite hopeful for the upcoming animated feature from Dreamworks.
Similar to ABC’s Once Upon a Time, Dreamworks’ Rise of the Guardians pools the fairy tales of old to create a new story. In this adventure, Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy, The Easter Bunny and the Sandman team up on a mission to save the children of Earth. It’s a fun setup with Santa as a burly Russian and The Easter Bunny looking like a mighty cross between Lord of the Rings‘ characters: Legalas and Aragorn.
The latest trailer features Jack Frost, who somehow holds the key to everything. He’s also high up on Santa’s naughty list. It may appear to have the intricacies of the classic Pixar film (those which pre-date Cars 2), but the fun-filled adventure of How to Train Your Dragon seems to be there.
Between Rise of the Guardians and Wreck-it Ralph, I’m excited for the animated films coming out in the second half of 2012.
