Are you a fan of mystic owls? The new LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS trailer is for you

It's official: Hollywood studios will make a computer generated movie out of any animal on the planet. Nothing is off limits. Legend of the Guardians is based on the first entry of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole book series by author Kathryn Lasky. It follows a young orphaned owl who embarks on an adventure to find a group of legendary noble owls in a giant tree far, far away. The books must be fairly popular. There are 15 novels in the series and a full owl language you can learn, should you feel like wasting a significant portion of your life learning a language that owls speak in a modestly successful fictional book series.

The more realistic these animated animal movies get, the more they creep me out. It's like watching a live demonstration of the uncanny valley hypothesis. This film comes from the studio behind Happy Feet, which suffered the same problem, and is directed by Zack Snyder, best known for 300 and Watchmen. Legend of the Guardians hits theaters September 24, 2010.
