Goodviews: Rise of the Guardians

Remember the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny? What if they teamed up together with the Sand Man to bring peace and joy to kids all over the world? Rise of the Guardians shows us what could happen if people stop believing and how Jack Frost came to be.

At the beginning you meet Jack Frost (Chris Pine) causing a little bit of chaos while having fun and making things wintery. Jamie Bennett (Dakota Goyo) and his friends are the targets. Jack only wants to help them have more fun, but Jack has a problem. No one can see him and he wishes that someone could see him so he would have at least one friend. Manny (the man in the moon) gives him the message that he will find his purpose soon enough.

Come to find out Pitch (the Boogeyman, voiced by Jude Law) has had enough of not being able to be seen, so he’s going to do whatever he can so other beings like him (Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, etc) will not longer be seen. Everything will come up Pitch, but Manny has other plans and tells the Guardians (those who guard children, their hopes, and their dreams) that Pitch is up to no good, but they need another. They need Jack Frost as a Guardian. Will they convince him to join them and team up together in time to stop Pitch from terrorizing children all over the world and keep their holidays going?! Watch to find out.

Heather: I’m not sure who my favorite character is, but Alec Baldwin does an amazing job as North (Santa Claus) and Hugh Jackman is hilarious as the Easter Bunny (Bunny), but there’s something about Sandy (Sand Man) that brings everything together. Especially when this mute character is trying to get the attention of everyone else and no one will pay him any attention!
