Warner Bros. has released eight character posters for Zack Snyder’s animated 3D fantasy-adventure film “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.”

Label me a Hate-a-nator but somehow these cutesy character posters have made me hate this movie more. I know there are some people here at YBMW who are excited about it, but cute talking fantasy owls just don’t do it for me. Sorry. Now if this was a film about being hunted out of existence… well then that’s another story.

“Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” premiers on September 24th. It stars the voice talents of Emily Barclay, Abbie Cornish, Ryan Kwanten, Anthony LaPaglia, Miriam Margolyes, Helen Mirren, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving and David Wenham.

Here’s the official synopsis for “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”:
The film follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father’s epic stories of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion, and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father’s favor from his younger sibling. But Kludd’s jealousy has terrible consequences-causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians of Ga’Hoole-Soren’s only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.
