Zach Snyder (director of The Watchmen) is directing an animated The Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie. Guardians of Ga’Hoole is a kids fantasy series by Kathryn Lasky. It’s a Watership Down type tale of anthropomorphic animals (in this case owls) engaged in a battle against evil.

The choice of Director makes me a tiny bit worried (the decision to film a Watchmen movie wasn’t one I entirely agreed with) but this series is totally different so hopefully a good film adaption will compliment the series and bring more readers to it (or Tu-Whit).
