New Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole Poster
08.09.10 by reelz
A new, and most likely final, poster for Watchmen director Zack Snyder's upcoming 3-D flick Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole has been released online. The animated owl movie — from the same studio that made Happy Feet and set for theater release on September 24th — features an impressive cast of Hollywood voices, including Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Geoffrey Rush (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Helen Mirren (The Queen).
The group of owls on the poster — each with varying degrees of cuteness — stand next to a piece of owl head armor. A fantasy-world landscape looms in the background, in what looks like a cross between Narnia and Middle Earth. But this is not a Hollywood mash-up. Legend of the Guardians is based on the first three books in the Guardians of Ga'hoole series, penned by Kathryn Lasky in 2003. The story follows a young Barn Owl Soren (voiced by 21's Jim Sturgess), who is snatched by evil owls from St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. Soren eventually escapes to the island of Ga'hoole and joins other owls in the war against the Academy.
