Kathryn Lasky’s bestselling YA series comes to life in Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, starring the voice of Jim Sturgess as Soren.

Big Dreams

Soren is a young barn owl with big dreams. He believes that the legendary Guardians of Ga’Hoole are more than just a legend, and that his hero—the Guardian warrior, Lyze of Kiel—is real. But Soren’s brother Kludd resents Soren’s dreamy personality, and his positive outlook on the world.


Kidnapped

One day during flight practice, Soren and Kludd are kidnapped. They’re taken to a place called “the orphanage”—the lair of the Pure Ones—where many owls are moon-blinked, and others are trained as fighters. The Pure Ones are plotting an evil scheme to destroy the Guardians and rule the owl kingdom.


The Quest for Ga’Hoole

With a little help, Soren and his new friend Gylfie escape. It’s their job to find the Great Tree of Ga’Hoole and warn the Guardians about the Pure Ones’ attack. On their way, Soren and Gylfie meet two more owls—a hyperactive owl named Digger and a poet /warrior named Twilight. With their help, they navigate the violent seas on their quest for the Guardians.


The Bottom Line

Legend of the Guardians has shown that there is still room for improvement in the outstanding world of animation. The quality of this movie exceeds all other 3D films of 2010. And much of it is due to Kathryn Lasky’s amazing story. Some people find it hard to relate to animal characters. But Lasky has incorporated so many human emotions, values and motivations into her characters, that you’ll have no problem relating to the owls.


Legend of the Guardians Rating: 5
