Considering the trailer boasts some fantastic animation, it’s no surprise that the character posters for Zack Snyder’s Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole are mesmerizing. Based on Kathryn Lasky’s books, the film tells the story of a young owl named Soren who gets into trouble when a scuffle with his brother causes both to fall from their treetop and into the clutches of the evil Pure Ones. After managing to escape, Soren and a few new friends must find the legendary Guardians of Ga’Hoole in order to save the owl kingdoms from the Pure Ones.
Of course one of these posters belongs to our hero, Soren, who’s voiced by Jim Sturgess. We’ve also got one for Soren’s brother, Kludd (Ryan Kwanten), and his sister Eglantine (Emilie de Ravin) as well as Gylfie (Rachel Taylor), Digger (David Wenham) and Twilight (Jay Laga’aia), all orphaned owls taken by the Pure Ones. Then, of course, there are images for the film’s villains, Metalbeak (Sam Neill) and his mate Nyra (Helen Mirren).
Check out all eight poster below and keep an eye out for Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole when it hits theaters on September 24th.
