When an evil spirit called Pitch becomes bent upon taking over the world by inspiring fear in the hearts of kids everywhere, a group of our greatest heroes — Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost — band together for the first time, determined to stand in Pitch’s way. More than a collection of storybook subjects, The Guardians are also a band of superheroes, who possess their own special powers. Now joined in opposition of a common foe, the Guardians heed the call and combine their powers to defeat Pitch and protect the world from his campaign of fear.

Rise Of The Guardians is based on the book by William Joyce and features the voice talents of Alec Baldwin as North (Santa) Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Hugh Jackman as Bunnymud (Easter Bunny) Isla Fisher as Tooth (I think you can guess that one) and Jude Law as Pitch.
