Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman voicing DreamWorks’ “Guardians”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: DreamWorks Animation has lined up an impressive roster of celebrity vocal talent for its animated feature “Rise of the Guardians,” an adaptation of William Joyce’s children’s book “The Guardians of Childhood.”

Chris Pine, best known as Capt. Kirk from J.J. Abrams’ stellar “Star Trek” reboot, nabbed the lead role of Jack Frost. He’ll be joined by Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law in the film, which will be in theaters on Nov. 21, 2012.

“It’s a thrill to be working with such an all-star team of actors and filmmakers on Rise of the Guardians,” commented Bill Damaschke, Chief Creative Officer at DreamWorks Animation. “When we bring Bill Joyce’s imaginative vision to the screen in 2012, audiences will experience an incredible story with a truly epic sense of adventure.”

More from the release:

Rise of the Guardians is being directed by Peter Ramsey and co-directed by William Joyce, produced by Christina Steinberg and Nancy Bernstein, written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro and Michael Siegel.

More than a collection of the well-known childhood legends, Rise of the Guardians tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world. This epic 3D adventure stars Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Alec Baldwin as North (Santa Claus), Hugh Jackman as Bunnymund (Easter Bunny), Isla Fisher as Tooth (Tooth Fairy) and Jude Law as Pitch (The Boogeyman).
