A couple of months ago, Entertainment Weekly released the first character art for Rise Of The Guardians, along with some information about the characters and the creation of them. Have a read of the main part of the interview with director William Joyce, including the bit about Isla’s role as Tooth Fairy, below, and read the full article at the source linked at the bottom. There’s also another article about the film at The Hollywood Reporter, which talks about the effects of the movie and mentions the reaction of initial screenings to audiences.
I’ve added the Tooth Fairy character art to our Gallery, alongside the posters and a few stills. Normally I wouldn’t add photos that don’t feature Isla herself, but I know some of you are interested to see the animated works.
The article also talks about the release of the first trailer, and you can find that here. Find the official website for the film at www.riseoftheguardians.com.

Have you ever believed in something so strongly that you made it real?
William Joyce definitely has.
The artist and storyteller, who wrote the books Dinosaur Bob and George Shrinks and did character design for the movies Toy Story and Robots, wanted his daughter, Mary Katherine, and son, Jack, to have no shadow of doubt that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy were real. So he began planting evidence — like a bad cop, or maybe the world’s best dad.
Those efforts have led to a series of books and an upcoming 3-D film from DreamWorks Animation, Rise of the Guardians, in which tough-as-nails versions of childhood icons join forces to combat a Boogeyman named Pitch.
With a new trailer showing off the Nov. 21 movie, Joyce takes a deep dive with EW on the story behind his backstories.
The way Joyce explained it to his own kids, the more faith one has in the existence of what he dubbed The Guardians of Childhood, the more power these protectors have.
