Santa Claus has graced the silver screen in countless holiday movies, and this November, he’s back again. But this time, in DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians, he’s joined by a crew of other creatures that accompany the visions of sugar plums in children’s heads. Today Paramount, which is distributing the film, released a series of character posters featuring a formidable Easter Bunny, a birdlike Tooth Fairy and four other characters. In the film, these classic characters are all known by nicknames – Santa is North, the Easter Bunny is E. Aster Bunnymund – but on the posters, they went with the better-known names, with the exception of Pitch, the Boogeyman-inspired nightmare-bringer antagonist of the film.
The movie comes from the mind of the man who won this year’s Oscar for best animated short, William Joyce (The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore). He penned the Guardians screenplay and the children’s book series from which it is adapted.
