Guardians of Ga’hoole: Finally a Movie!

Posted by at 6:10 am in Book to Big Screen, Reads | Permalink

Hey all you Guardians of Ga’hoole fans. You’re reading that headline right. The Guardians of Ga’hoole series by Kathryn Lasky is being made into a movie!

It’s going to be an animated film, made by the same people who did Happy Feet. The movie will encompass the story in the first three books. And just announced over the weekend: now we know who’ll be doing some of the voices!

Actor Ryan Kwanten will be the voice of Soren. Hugh Jackman (whom I love as Wolverine in the X-Men movies!) and Hugo Weaving will also be joining Ryan Kwanten to voice characters in the movie. But I can’t find who they’re voicing! Hugo Weaving’s played a lot of older, ruler-type characters like Elrond in the Lord of the Rings movies and Noah the Elder in Happy Feet. So maybe he’ll fill a similar role and voice Ezylryb in this movie. Then again, maybe not.

In this case, your guess is as good as mine. So I want to hear your guesses! Which characters do you think Hugh Jackman and Hugo Weaving will be voicing?

    I was expecting this movie to be a total knockout with computer animation(which I’d prefer) or at least live action! But the creators of Happy Feet? Racdrops . . . if they even think of turning this series into some cheesy animation film; holy Glaux in glamora, they might as well chuck the whole thing into the sea of Hoolemere and I’d yarp a pellet on it for good measure!
    Please exuse my language. But I’m still really exited! But if they make a movie, they’d better make it right!

It’s good for him. I think that you are right about Ezylryb. I heard the date, too! I think that it will come out on September 10, 2010. It may not be the 10th, but I know that it is in September, 2010.SO EXCITED!
