“Rise of the Guardians,” an entertaining twist on the standard Santa Claus/Easter Bunny template, is out on Blu-ray this week. To mark the release, the folks behind the film are celebrating Easter a few days early.
Participating Simon Malls will be offering Easter crafts, giveaways, peeks at the film, home video prizes and a visit from, who else, the Easter Bunny on March 16. Just don’t tell your young ones that he doesn’t quite sound like Hugh Jackman, who provides the voice for the Easter Bunny in the film.
The event is free to the public, although Kidgits Club members will also get a free Easter basket. For more information, and to find out the malls taking part in the program, visit Simon Malls’ web site. Locally, the fun begins at 2 p.m. at the Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood, Co.
“Rise of the Guardians,” featuring the voices of Alec Baldwin, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Isla Fisher and Jackman, follows Santa Claus and co. as they battle an evil force plotting to plunder the innocence of children across the globe.
