First Images From Zack Snyder’s Owl Movie Guardians of Ga’Hoole

12 Comments

The boys and gals over at USAToday have your first images from Zack Snyder’s CG animated owl movie “Guardians of Ga’Hoole”, which has since been retitled “Legend of the Guardians” because, one presumes, having “Legend” in your movie title just sounds naturally better. More, shall we say, legendary. Or such. Anyways, the film is based on the book series by Kathryn Lasky, and follows Soren (voiced by Jim Sturgess), a young barn owl who is kidnapped by the owls of the St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls, where pupils are being brainwashed into soldiers to battle the peaceful owls of Ga’Hoole.

So what, slow-motion owl action? One can only hope.

Featuring the voices of Emilie de Ravin, Abbie Cornish, Hugo Weaving, Geoffrey Rush, Helen Mirren, Jim Sturgess, Sam Neill, Ryan Kwanten, David Wenham, and directed by Zack Snyder.

The owls take flight September 24, 2010.

    Those images look pretty rad! I have no idea what i should be thinking about this though…anyone know what up with the source material?…We all know Snyder, so can we expect the same, or is this gonna be something out of his norm?

      The source material is a series of independant reader books (ages 10-13) same as Potter, and Percy Jackson, about a group of warrior Owls. It’s been very successful (though nothing has reached Potter status) and has two series so far. It’s gonna be Secret of NIMH (with owls not rats and mice) meets…well I dunno really. But good source material.
