Someone believes in fairy tales

Hollywood Film Awards 2012: Hollywood Animation Award

The marvelous 3D imagery in DreamWorks Animation’s “The Rise of the Guardians” (Hollywood Animation Award), based on William Joyce’s children’s book “The Guardians of Childhood,” includes characters like Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Jack Frost and Tooth Fairy, voiced by the likes of Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine, Isla Fisher and Alec Baldwin.

“All of us were captivated by Bill’s ideas and wanted to reinvent these characters we all had an emotional attachment to when we were children, as real people,” says director Peter Ramsey.

“That was the central idea. When we were discussing what kind of movie this was going to be,” he continues, “Guillermo del Toro, who is executive producer, asked, ‘Is it a fairy tale?’ We landed on, ‘It’s a superhero movie where the superheroes get their power from belief.’ So that’s what it really is.”

“Our film shows the magic of imagination and the magic of believing in these characters,” Baldwin adds. “When I was a kid, your parents do a great deal to install belief in you. I can personally remember the quarters and dimes my parents would leave for the tooth fairy or the footprints every Christmas my father would leave for Santa to come down the chimney. When you’re five, that is possible. This is real. It’s a great lesson for children and a great lesson for adults to remember.”
