Based on Karyn Lasky’s beloved Guardians of Ga’Hoole book series, this new 3D picture marks the animation debut of director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300) and is his first PG-rated family film, with spectacular visuals from Academy Award-winning Australian animation studio Animal Logic (Happy Feet).
The film follows the adventures of Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father’s epic stories of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father’s favor from his younger sibling. But Kludd’s jealousy has terrible consequences – causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians – Soren’s only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.
Comment: Rated PG by the MPAA for some sequences of scary action.
