New ‘Rise of the Guardians’ Trailer: It’s Still Not the Thing with the CGI Owls

When the evil Pitch enacts a plan to turn children’s dreams into permanent nightmares–an inevitable change that really shouldn’t transition until at least early adulthood–Santa, Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and Sandman join forces to fight the threat in DreamWorks Animation’s latest CGI thing, Rise of the Guardians. But the mythical Child Protective Services can’t do it alone: as this latest trailer reveals, they also need to recruit Jack Frost, as he has, in Santa’s vaguely-Russian words, “something very special inside.” The confidence to walk around with the hair of Ellen DeGeneres?

Now whenever I see the Rankin/Bass stop-motion classic Jack Frost, I’ll always be thinking, “Why isn’t the character wearing a screen-printed hoodie he picked up at Target?”
