During the Christmas holidays, I remember seeing a preview for a fun animated comedy that included mythical creatures, such as the Easter Bunny, Santa, the Toothfairy, and Sandman. Just by the previews alone, I knew I had to check out the Rise of the Guardians, but I didn’t get a chance to make it to the movie theater on time. Just in time for Easter, the Rise of the Guardians is available on BluRay/DVD (March 12, 2013)
Just like any fairytale, there is a villain, a few heros, and some fun and laughs along the way. I didn’t know what to expect when I initially popped the BluRay into the player, but within minutes I was transported to a fairytale land, along with my family. My toddler loved that all the characters we tell her about were all in the movie, making it feel like they all “hang out” together when they aren’t visiting for their own holidays. I don’t want to give away the plot, because I’m sure there are many out there who haven’t seen it yet! The movie reminded me almost of Shrek, which isn’t surprising because both movies are produced by Dreamworks.
