Friends of feather wait together. I had erroneously reported that The Guardians of Ga’Hoole would have its premier in Australia on Dec. 9 of this year. It did sound too good to be true and my eyes (or was it the public school system) did, indeed, fail me when reading the ABC Australia story. There film is slated for release on Sept. 24.

Ga’Hoole, the 3-D animated feature from director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), was test screened for audiences here in Los Angeles, leading me to believe the picture will be out a lot sooner. I still think we’ll see Ga’Hoole before the summer.

Director Zack Snyder
So, now, I’m left with this picture of Zack Snyder (he looks disappointed too) and an agonizing self-hatred for having led you astray. My apologies.
In any case, this part of the post remains accurate:
Contrary to earlier reports, actor Huge Jackman is not attached to the project. But, his countrymen Geoffrey Rush, David Wenham, Ryan Kwanten, Jay Laga’aia, Emily Barclay, Abbie Cornish, and Emilie de Ravin (aka: Claire from “Lost!”) have all been confirmed. Sam Neil, Hugo Weaving, Miriam Margolyes, Helen Mirren and Jim Sturgess round out the cast.
Guardians of Ga’Hoole is the story of a young orphaned barn owl named Soren (voiced by Sturgess) and his quest to escape a group of war-mongering owls. The film is an adaptation of the first three books in author Kathryn Lasky’s fantasy series of the same name.
Guardians of Ga’Hoole is produced by Village Roadhouse and Australia’s very own Oscar-winning animation studio Animal Logic (Happy Feet).
