PostSubject: An insight to the Plot   Fri Sep 24, 2010 8:04 pm

Though I'm not staff here, I happen to have read most of the book series behind this movie. So I'll give a brief outline as to what it is, for those of you interested.

The story follows a young owl, Soren, on a long adventure after he is abducted by the "Pure Ones" and taken to St. Aggie's (Wiki for the long name), a "home for orphaned owls", where he is put to work as a slave along with countless other owlets. Eventually, (not giving away the story much), he escapes with a new found friend and ventures across the lands in search of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole, and the great Ga'Hoole Tree. If you've seen the trailer, you know that he makes it to the tree, and that's where his training to become a guardian begins.

How far the actual movie takes us I'm unsure, but I've read most of the books and finished the game at least once, judging from the game, the movie is going to be epic!

I haven't read any of the books (although I very well may, as soon as I can find them), however I did see the movie. I was very much impressed with the art and the story; it was overall an awesome and very well-made movie.

The only thing that I thought the movie fell a little flat on was character development, and I attribute that to the story kind of moving a bit too fast. Then again, when converting a book into a movie, you're limited to only so much time anyway, so I suppose it's excusable.

Yeah, I saw it last night. But, then again, if you read the books, that's actually how it starts. Tells you very little about Soren and his family, and just jumps right into the problem.

I didn't much like how you didn't learn much about the training or Otulissa, when she did play a big part in the book. I also wasn't sure what she was. I beleive she was a spotted owl in the books, but in the movie, she looked like a barn owl who got some ink splattered on them. Probably was.

I'm kind of afraid of seeing this movie because apparently they took A LOT out, like how Soren's brother is supposed to be Metalbeak but he isn't in the movie, and apparently St Aggie's isn't in the movie either.

St. Aggie's is just the Pure Ones in the movie, but in the books they are both completely different groups. You should read the books!
