The Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

From the distributor of Harry Potter Series, Warner Brothers in cooperation with Village Roadshow Pictures and Animal Logic, comes the most exciting quest of Owls, The Legend of Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, directed by Zack Snyder, a 3D animated fantasy film released last September 24, 2010. 

The film originated from the novel The Legend of the Guardians written by Kathryn Lasky, the Legend of the Guardians finally has been made into an animated film. The story focused on the strong belief of a young owl, Soren to the stories about The Guardians that his Da usually narrates to him and his siblings, Eglentine and Kludd. He idolized the Guardians specially the Lyze of Kiel. Unlike him, Kludd was different. He was jealous of Soren. He hated him.

One night when, their parents were hunting and their little sister Eg was asleep, they were practicing to fly in branches but were then kidnapped by the soldiers of the Pure Ones, a group of Tyto Owls who were working for a masked owl named Metal Beak.
On their way to the underground fortress, Soren met Gylfie, an elf owl who then became his friend. They were brought to face the lady owl, Nyra.  Nyra saw potential of being future soldiers in Soren and Kludd but Soren resisted for he believed that they were up for something terrible. Kludd, who was then attracted to all the strength and power Nyra offered decided to stay and be a Pure One. Soren, together with Gylfie and the other young owls who didn’t even know how to fly were brought to a place where all owls are to face the full moon to sleep. Gylfie, having the thought that the soldiers were trying to moon blink them, told Soren to never stare at the moon so they wouldn’t go moon blink and wake up the next day acting different that seemed like someone who’s being hypnotized. They pretended to be one anyway just to be safe but they were busted by one of the soldiers, Grimble, an old owl who was also against with the Pure Ones but is forced to serve the group. Grimble helped them learn how to fly to be able to escape and report the anomaly to The Guardians in the Tree of Ga’Hoole beyond the Sea of Hoolemere. Soren, Gylfie and Grimble were caught by Nyra but Grimble fought so Soren and Gylfie could fly away and they did. They had successfully escaped but without Grimble. Grimble was killed by Nyra.

On their way looking for the Sea of Hoolemere, they met Twilight, a frustrated singer and poet and Digger, a comedian who were about to eat Mrs. P, a snake who was Eg’s babysitter. Together, with the guidance of Twilight who knew the direction, they flew to the Tree of Ga’Hoole.

Soren met his idol, the Lyze of Kiel and they prepared for battle against the Pure Ones. He wanted to go with the Guardians but he had to tend for his sister Eg who was then Moon Blinked after being kidnapped by Kludd who was then a soldier of the Pure Ones. When Eg woke up and told the whole story to Soren, he found out that there was a traitor in the Guardians and the battle was a trap for Guardians. Together with the whole band, Gylfie, Twilight and Digger went to the fortress of the Pure Ones to help.

And a realization will come. Soren will no longer just a young owl idolizing a hero but he became a hero as well.
