The Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is a computer-animated fantasy film based on the book series Guardians of Ga'Hoole. This is an Australian-American movie starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Barclay and Helen Mirren as some of the character voices. This is a family film that runs for approximately ninety-seven minutes. Taken from their nest, a young Soren and brother Kludd are saved from a Tasmanian devil by two owls who introduce themselves as part of the Pure Ones. The Pure Ones are a group of rebellious owls who believe that only the strong are allowed a place in society, and the weak are to be used as workers for the remainder of the nest. Soren refuses to join the Pure Ones and is taken to the work camp. Kludd, wanting to fit in, decides to join the Pure Ones. Once in the camp, Soren and elf owl Gylfie, along with a few others, are mistreated and brainwashed into being slaves to the Pure Ones. They soon learn that their captor doesn't agree with the Pure Ones and teaches them to fly. He then sacrifices himself so they can escape and warn the Owls of Ga'Hoole of the Pures Ones' plan and impending danger. Soren and Gylfie meet up with two other owls named Twilight and Digger carrying Soren's nursemaid blind snake Mrs. P. The unlikely group travels to the Owls of Ga'Hoole, where they are welcomed and trained to survive. When a scout group of Owls returns from checking up on the travelers' story of the Pure Ones, they bring back Soren's sister who has been brainwashed as a worker. All the owls then gather for a fight. Soren learns from his sister that the fight is a trap to destroy the Owls of Ga'Hoole. Soren then leaves the safety of the nest to warn the owls, and with his friends, he enters the battle. The Pure Ones are finally defeated, and Soren and his sister get to go home.
