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 can’t wait to see the movie! I remember i read Exile, # 14 I think, in 2nd grade and it was too hard for me…it took me like 2 months to read it. I liked it even though i didn’t understand it, though! :-) Oh well, i better buy some of the books and reread them!

    i think hugh jackman will be twilight because twilight is a tough guy and hugh is wolverine so he can talk tough. and he can sing! (remember the oscars a year ago) so he’ll be able to sing twilight’s chants

    i don’t care who is who’s voice as long as it is awesome and, like lex said, isn’t like the confounded Twilight movies.

    I read a description online, and it sounds like they have it all wrong. From what the overview said, in the movie Soren and Kludd will be kidnapped by the Pure Ones.
