Rise of the Guardians: Inside DreamWorks' Ode to Childhood Fantasy

by at . Comments

Movie Fanatic headed over to the Directors Guild of America headquarters in Hollywood today for a DreamWorks Animation presentation for their upcoming 2012 slate. More on our look at Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted later, but first we wanted to take you inside their Avengers-like grouping of the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy, Sandman, Jack Frost and the Boogeyman for Rise of the Guardians. The film is based on the William Joyce books that bring those childhood fantasies to life. The program began with a short introduction by DreamWorks Animation Chief Bill Damaschke. He spoke of the author’s affinity for holidays. “He’s somebody who really loves and celebrates the holidays full-out, all the time, not just the biggies,” he said. “He’s someone who has an Arbor Day party!”
