trailer break: ‘Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

This must surely rival Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief for the champion Mouthful Title of the Year. (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is now a distant third.)

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something rubs me the wrong way every time I see this trailer. The animation is lovely, but something about the birds is odd. And something about the obvious hero’s-journey structure of the story the trailer is hinting at hits so many of those notes in such a way that it all feels like a it’s supposed to be a joke, a parody.

Is it just me?

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole opens in the U.S. and Canada on September 24, and in the U.K. on October 15.
