This film looks gorgeous and it’s a drastic change of pace for Snyder who’s more known for his stylized action films.

Legend of the Guardians is based on the first three books of Kathryn Lasky’s series, Guardians of Ga’Hoole. It follows Soren (Jim Sturgess), a young barn owl who is kidnapped by the owls of the St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls, or St. Aggie’s. The academy is supposed to be an orphanage, but instead it brainwashes its pupils into becoming soldiers who will ultimately clash with the wise, peaceful owls of Ga’Hoole.

The film also includes the vocal talents of Helen Mirren, Emilie de Ravin, Hugo Weaving, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, and Abbie Cornish

Legend of the Guardians will debut in theaters this fall on September 24th.
