Ryan Kwanten’s Film Changes Name

March 4, 2010 by  

Ryan Kwanten fans take note.  If you are anticipating the upcoming release of his animated film, Guardians of Ga’Hoole, you may be surprised to find it will now be released as Legend of the Guardians.  Why the change, you ask?  Heat Vision Blog, who posted the name change, speculated that “Ga’Hoole” was not familiar enough to potential viewers.

The movie is based on the first three books of Kathryn Lasky’s series, Guardians of Ga’Hoole, and centers on a young barn owl named, SorenSoren is kidnapped by evil owls determined to raise an army of subservient and malevolent soldiers.  Soren and his new band of conscientious friends escape to the island of Ga’Hoole to convene with like-minded owls living in the Great Ga’Hoole Tree and to take on the evil army.  They face obstacles, challenges, and danger at every turn!

Ryan voices Kludd, the older brother of Soren and Leader of the Pure Ones, a group determined to take control of the Great Ga’Hoole Tree.

The movie was directed by Zach Snyder (Watchmen, 300) and features a star-studded cast including Jim Sturgess as Soren with Geoffrey Rush, Helen Mirren, Abbie Cornish, Emilie de Ravin, Sam Neill, and, of course, Ryan Kwanten.  The movie is currently set for release on September 24, 2010.
