I love this movie! I've seen it a couple time and I've tried to read the books. Now I am watching it again and trying to finish the books!

While visually pretty, this movie is about a war where the one of the supporting characters sells his sister into slavery and tries to kill his brother. Not what I would expect for a kid's story.

I'm reading the books, and I love them, but when I then watched the trailer for the movie and now I'm not so sure if I should watch it...

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL "ANIMATED" MOVIE OUT THERE. EVER. Beautiful shot and rendered. Solid story. But if you want you can just watch mainly for the visuals.

Soren (Jim Sturgess), a young Barn Owl, lives in the Tyto Forest with his family: his father, Noctus (Hugo Weaving); his mother, Marella (Essie Davis); his older brother, Kludd (Ryan Kwanten); his younger sister, Eglantine (Adrienne DeFaria); and Mrs. Plithiver aka Mrs. P (Miriam Margolyes) the family's nest maid, a kindly black mamba. Soren enjoys listening to the 'Legends of Ga'Hoole,' which are mythical tales of warrior owls. One day, in jealousy of Soren's branching ability, Kludd pushes him off a branch, but inadvertently falls himself. On the ground, they are attacked by a Tasmanian devil, but are saved/kidnapped by owls, Jatt (Leigh Whannell) and Jutt (Angus Sampson).
As the owls take them to St. Aegolious, the canyonland home of the Pure Ones, Soren meets Gylfie (Emily Barclay), a young elf owl as well as many other owlets. At St. Aegolious, the queen of the Pure Ones, Nyra (Helen Mirren), begins to say that the young owls are their slaves. When Soren and Gylfie protest, the two are placed as 'pickers.' Kludd openly rejects Soren and receives training to become a soldier to the Pure Ones. Grimble (Hugo Weaving), Soren and Gylfie's captor, secretly tells them that he is disloyal to the Pure Ones and manages to teach them to fly. However, Nyra catches them just as she comes to invite Soren to be a soldier. Grimble then sacrifices himself to allow the owls to fly away seeking the 'Great Tree of Ga'Hoole.' To warn the mythical Guardians about the Pure Ones' plan against them.
