Guardians of Ga'Hoole
Post By Rikku. 14/09/10, 04:55 pm

Okayso. ^-^ I was in Hoyts, waiting to see Inception(OMFG Brilliant!), when I walk around the corner BAM(and the dirt is gone!), I suddenly see huge cardboard things with owls on them. I'm looking like, wtf, then look at the bottom where it says "Legend of the Guardians: Owls of Ga'Hoole". Obviously they've changed the title a little bit from the books, but that's fine, I guess. From what I could see of the pictures, the animation looks brilliant. They got all the faces as I would expect them to look, save for Twilight, who looks too happy(he's a staunch, buff Great Grey who raised himself) and Nyra, who's eyes are the wrong colour. Come to think of it... Hmm.

Anyway. Who here has read the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series? I have. I absolutely ADORE the book series(tho tbh I've only read up to book 8. Going to the library tomorrow to read/get out the whole series and read it all again XD), and really hope that the movie will be amazing.

The movie is based on the first three books. That's as far as I know. I'm Googling it now. x3
Anyway. Opinions? Comments? Squeeness? I know I'm excited for it to be released. 8D

That's the trailer for it.
Most of the voices are Australian, as it's produced in Australia, but I think I can get past that fact. Cos really, we all love the Aussies, even if we are really competitive. xD
BUT OMFG I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS SUGAR HONEY ICED TEA IT WILL BE SO AMAZING.

Yessss! I'm hyped up for this too! I think the trailer looks pretty good. Very Happy
Though it's been quite awhile since I read the series so I don't really remember much other than that I used to enjoy them, gah. ^^'' -fail memory-
I have up to book 11 though (used to get them for really cheap from the Scholastic factory shop in Auckland ^^), so I'm gonna reread the series when I find where I put them. xD''

I haven't read the books, but I saw the trailer before Toy Story 3 and declared on the stop I'd be taking a small child along!
SOOOOOOOOOO pretty!

Guardians of Ga'Hoole was MY FAVOURITE book series as a kid- I've still got them all sitting in my bookcase. When I heard it was gonna be made into a movie I worried about what the animation would be like but I saw a trailer (before inception) and it looks fantastic (Soren is so cute~)!

And it's being directed by Zack Snyder (who directed 300).

I'm excited 8D. (Butyeah, a bit worried about how changing the story might work out).

YAAAAAAAAAAY FINALLY SOMEONE STARTED A TOPIC!!!

Srsly, my heart melted when I saw the huge as banner above BK at the Metro Foodcourt....

:^; *sniff*

I'm real excited to go see this film, but I'm not sure if I should go see it in 3D or normal.
It'll also be real nice to see what sort of differences between the movie and books are. Very Happy

YAYNESS I'M NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO LOVED THE SERIES!!! 8D 8D 8D 8D
Tbh, I haven't read the entire series. I got kinda sick of Nyroc/Coryn hogging the limelight(SOREN FTW!!!). But I was looking on Wiki last night and a read a major spoiler in the last book and now it's like D8 I want to knoooowwww. I went to the library to read them today, but most of them were out. >____>

I'd say Normal at friend, cos in 3D, I found that some of the colours were washed out and dulled(or at least it was in Avatar).

I honestly can't wait for this to be released.
24th September, I think it is. I'll be in Christchurch on the 25th and will be going to it on the 26th, even if Steev's parents won't take me. I will find SOME way to get there to see it, even if I have to walk all the way!!! xDD

Apparently Kathryn Lasky is writing the screenplay for it? Or at least she was back in 2004 when it was being decided on to be made. I hope she still is. There's nothing like the author of the stories writing the screenplay for the movie. That makes it all good in my mind(/Glares angrily at the Eragon movie. RUINED IT).

It'll be a GREAT movie, I reckon. 8D I totally wana get all the books out and read them all again. I'm so gutted that there was only 7, 9 and 11 at the library. </3 </3

I am so keen for this movie, I worshipped it as a kid Very Happy it looks AMAZING *__*
I only read up to book 8-9 when I was a kid too, and a few weeks ago picked up 10 and 11 just because I could, but I don't have much interested in catching up; it ended happily, am happy to stay ignorant to that xD

I haven't read the books, but I saw the 3D trailer!

It has the most amazing 3D effects I have seen to date. At one point I actually reach out and tried to touch the bird because I was pretty sure it should have been sticking out of the screen.

I didn't grow up with the books so I'm kind of 'meh' about it all. If I had to watch a kid's movie I'll rather stay at home and re-watch Aladdin. The graphics are amazing yes, will give it that. But it seems kind of well, boring to me. Maybe because didn't grow up with the nostalgia. :/

Pretty much sums it up.
