There’s a lot of shuffleboard being played with animated movies. Monsters, Inc. 2 has a new date, Beauty and the Beast 3D was pulled, and now it appears DreamWorks Animation has followed suit, changing the release date of their upcoming film The Guardians of Childhood (not to be confused with Guardians of Ga’Hoole’s Legend of the Guardians). In an effort to combat the mega popular Twilight Saga franchise and their upcoming Breaking Dawn, The Guardians moves from opening November 2nd 2012 to opening on November 21st 2012. The film features a group of heroes from various childhood tales: Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, a Genie, the Sandman, and Jack Frost. The group joins together in an effort to stop Pitch the Boogeyman from sending the world into “eternal darkness”. The CG animated comedy, “a contemporary fairytale”, is based on the books by William Joyce.
