I just saw a trailer for a new movie that I really want to see, Legend of the Guardians:
All I can say is that owls are adorable, and owls wearing armor is really cool!
This movie is an adaptation of the children’s book series Guardians of Ga’Hoole by Kathryn Lasky, following the story from the first three books The Capture, The Journey, and The Rescue. There are currently 15 books in the series, with a plan for 25 books in the series. The story follows barn owls who live in peace until they are threatened by a danger that could destroy their home and what the owls do in an attempt to protect their home. The film is directed by Zack Snyder, and is scheduled to be out September 24, 2010.
Here is the cover of the first book:
USA Today featured pictures from the movie:

These pictures and the trailer look very interesting and I am excited to see this movie!
