Rise of the Guardians Easter Pack

From the creators of How to Train Your Dragon comes a magical and critically-acclaimed adventure – Rise of the Guardians.  The movie arrived on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time on March 12th from DreamWorks Animation.  Hailed as “brilliant” and “the best family film of the year” (Joel Amos, MovieFanatic.com) with “spellbinding power” (James Verniere, Boston Herald) and “dazzling animation” (Tom Long, Detroit News), Rise of the Guardians received outstanding audience reactions and a coveted ‘A’ Cinemascore.    Available in stores and online is a gift pack perfect for any Easter basket, including the heartwarming film and two hopping toy eggs!


Dreamwork’s Animation’s newest animated adventure has captured the imagination of audiences worldwide with a fun-filled and magical story about the legendary guardians – Jack Frost, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and Sandman – together for the first time!  When the evil Pitch threatens to take over the world, it’s up to our beloved heroes to protect the hopes and dreams of children everywhere.  Filled with non-stop action and laughs, it’s a dazzling family film that’s being hailed as “an instant classic” (Nancy Jay, Daybreak USA).

Just in time for Easter, Rise of the Guardians is now available in a Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy Pack with UltraViolet or single-disc DVD, each of which includes two delightful hopping toy eggs inspired by the ones seen in the film (while supplies last—quantities are limited).  The combo pack and single-disc DVD also include special features that take viewers behind-the-scenes to learn more about the magic used to bring the story to life.

Featuring an all-star cast of voice talent including Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law, Rise of the Guardians delivers humor, adventure and exceptional entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.  The film is also available in a three-disc Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy Pack with UltraViolet and for digital download.
