Guardians Assemble! The Fairytale Avengers are here, as Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy, Sandman and Jack Frost all come together in order to take on the big bad Boogeyman.

The film tells a story about the Guardians (North or Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and the Sandman), who enlist Jack Frost to stop Pitch from engulfing the world in darkness. It features the voices of Chris Pine (Jack Frost), Alec Baldwin (Santa Claus), Hugh Jackman (The Easter Bunny), Isla Fisher (The Tooth Fairy) and Jude Law (Pitch)

In recent years DreamWorks has really raised the bar when it comes to their animated films, as they create memorable meaningful stories that are not only filled with great heart warming moments, but also serve as great family entertainment for both the young and the old.

ROTG is one of their most memorable films to date as it jumps through action, comedy, drama and emotion in one easy sweep, as we - the audience - step into this world of imagination and adventure getting lost in our childish fantasies.

It’s quite easy to create a animated film that's big on fun, adventure and comedy, but it’s so much harder to create a story with substance as ROTG.
The film is much about self-discovery, and discovering ones purpose as it is about entertaining its audience, with action, humor and thrills.

The film focuses on Jack Frost who is quite the unknown entity when compared to our guardians – Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and Sandman. The film focuses on why Frost might not be as famous as peers and what he has been doing wrong, while taking him on a grand adventure as we get taken to majestic mythical places in this superb animated film.

The film offers us some really memorable characters such as SandMan, and puts 3D to good use, enhancing its storytelling, rather then being an unnecessary gimmick.

Although certain part of the film might come off a little too generic for its older audience, I feel it will certainly keep the younger generation fully invested in the story.

ROTG is definitely one of the best, if not thee best animated film for the year, and with all its humor, action, adventure and deeper themes its one film that you wouldn't want to miss.
