Ha ha ha! Speaking of RotG, i have a cousin who is 3 years old and is afraid of animation (genarally). Since jack frost is a gorgeous animated character i decided to show him at her saying his name and all. Suddenly, she grabbed my mob. phone and was staring at him like crazy!!! She then said ''Handsome'' and it was the first time she didnt freak out. The next day i told her to say his name and she said ''jack frost. I like him'' She hadnt forgotten him and now a new fangirl has been added!XD Dat snow...;)

Come on! COME ON! Are ya kidding me?! Rise of the Guardians #6?! This movie should be higher! If you want rotg to have a sequel, love it more than yourselfs. It was pretty amazing and the only film that has so many messages. Just go see it, like it! We want a sequel, Peter Ramsey or Dreamworks! Please, dont make us sad. We want our guardians back. For the love of Jack Frost, please!!!
