No matter how old we’re, we all want to believe in fairies and fairy tales because we feel protected by them when we choose to believe. The animated film Rise of the Guardians shows this connection between faith and protection. Five characters are tasked by the Man in the Moon to protect the children on planet Earth from the evil spirit called Pitch Black. Fans are wondering about Rise of the Guardians 2 and want more of the adventures of the Guardians.
Rise of the Guardians 2
All the conflicts were resolved at the end of the 1st movie. So, we can say that there are no more open questions for Rise of the Guardians 2. Nevertheless, we believe that there’s an important reason why there should be a 2nd movie. At the end of the 1st movie, Jack Frost solved his problem of being invisible by remembering his past and starting to help children. Also, he officially joined the Guardians by taking his oath. So his adventures as an official Guardian have yet to begin! Let’s find out if there will be Rise of the Guardians 2 or not.
Rise of the Guardians 2 Release Date
Rise of the Guardians was released in the US on November 21, 2012. This means that it’s been a full ten years since the release of the 1st movie. That’s why fans of the animated film are eagerly awaiting the announcement of Rise of the Guardians 2. We hate to break it to the fan community, but the producers of the film haven’t officially commented on a sequel yet. And since a lot of time has passed since the release of the 1st movie, we think it’s unlikely that there will be Rise of the Guardians 2.
Rise of the Guardians Cast
Rise of the Guardians cast includes five fairies and one evil spirit, which come from fairy tales and mythic stories. They represent the archetype of the guardian, who’s the qualities to protect and care for others. All characters are voiced by talented voice actors and actresses.
Jack Frost is the embodiment of winter and the freezing cold and is responsible for the snowy weather. He’s the Spirit of Winter who likes to use his powers for fun and mischief. But unfortunately, he’s not seen by people, although he wants nothing more than to be seen and believed in. As he comes to grips with his lost memory problems, he ends up becoming visible and the Guardian of Fun at the end.
Chris Pine lent his voice to Jack Frost.
Nicholas St. North
Nicholas St. North, also known as Santa Claus, is the leader of the Guardians and the Guardian of Wonder, who lives in the Ice Castle at the North Pole, where the Yetis and Christmas elves serve him. With his Russian accent and intimidating demeanor, he attracts the attention of the audience. Yet he’s a kind-hearted Santa Claus who distributes Christmas gifts to the children.
The well-known actor Alec Baldwin voiced Santa Claus.
E. Aster Bunnymund
Known as Bunny for short, he’s the representative of the mythical figure Easter Bunny, who keeps and brings the Easter eggs. He’s also the Guardian of Hope. At first he was prejudiced against Jack Frost, considering him unreliable, but then he accepted Jack as one of them.
The outstanding actor we know for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men film series, Hugh Jackman, gives life to Bunny with his fascinating Australian accent.
Toothiana, Tooth for short, is the Tooth Fairy who collects children’s teeth. As a Guardian of Memories, Tooth also collects their memories. She claims that the memories of lost teeth are the most important in childhood. Pitch steals all her fairies and the teeth she’s collected. The other guardians help Tooth collect the lost teeth of children around the world.
Isla Fisher gave her voice to the character.
The Sandman is a mythical character who puts sand in children’s eyes so they can fall asleep easily and have sweet dreams. In Rise of the Guardians, the Sandman, or Sandy, is responsible for this task too. Since he can’t speak, he communicates with signs and symbols. However, as the Guardian of Dreams, he’s the first guardian chosen by the Man in the Moon. He’s swallowed by the darkness of Pitch, but returns in the end.
He’s the evil spirit who wants to be believed and feared. He’s the Nightmare King and the personification of fear and terror that wants to devour the earth. As his name suggests, he’s black hair and black eyes and he wears black. Pitch was supported by dark horses that remind us of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Fortunately, he couldn’t reach his goal at the end. More than that, he was defeated by his own fears.
Jude Law lent his voice to Pitch.
