What is ‘Rise of the Guardians,’ you ask?


Rise of the Guardians is an iconic and criminally underrated film that focuses on Jack Frost, who was once a normal teenager. He’s revived into the immortal entity that we all know as the playful power behind winter, but that’s just the beginning. The film is about the battle between the guardians who are forced lớn team up—a buff Santa Claus, an even more buff Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and the Sandman—to stop Pitch black from bringing eternal night upon the world. Also, Hugh Jackman voices the Easter Bunny. It’s important lớn me that you know this.

I’m going lớn pause here, because I acknowledge you may have questions. However, as this is an article and not a live interview, I cannot answer any you actually have, và the best thing for both of us, I think, would be for me to lớn keep writing.

If you’ve seen Rise of the Guardians, you know what a masterpiece this movie is (Rise of the Guardians deserved what Frozen got & I’m willing to lớn defend that), but if you haven’t, I admit this sounds absolutely deranged. Bởi us both a favor và watch it. Only, you’ll need lớn brace yourself, because the true heartbreak comes once the credits start rolling:

This movie never got a sequel.

It’s an emotional rollercoaster about the power of believing in your heroes and having others believe in you, and the characters, as ridiculous as they may seem, were crafted with a careful depth that should have allowed two, three, four films or more. I would even settle for a TV series at this point. But luckily (!!!), I don’t have to.

Enter: ‘Seasons of the Storm’

When Jack Sommers was faced with the choice of living forever—according khổng lồ the ancient, magical rules of Gaia, of course—or die, he chose khổng lồ live. With echoes of the Jack Frost I already love (see above), this Jack plays off expectations while still being wholly his own. He becomes a Winter, the embodiment of the season on Earth, but this time, there’s no comedic alliance awaiting him. Isla Fisher’s sweet & adorable hummingbird-accented fairy doesn’t pop in for reassurance.

Instead, Jack finds out that every year, he must hunt the season who comes before him.

On a nightmarish (yet entertaining, for us) action-packed loop, Spring is killed by Summer, who is in turn then killed by Autumn, and then, always, Winter, & so on. It’s an endless cycle with a mythology that’s as brutal as it is wondrous, và despite their fates, the characters are so full of life that they jump off the page.

Of course, the story doesn’t stop there, because what kind of perfectly angsty fantasy tale would this be if it did? In Seasons of the Storm, Jack does the unthinkable: he falls for Fleur, a Spring. If they want khổng lồ be together, they’ll have lớn escape the cycle that’s forced them apart for all their afterlives & face the creator who you know won’t let them get away without a fight. Where Rise of the Guardians harped on the power nguồn of believing in yourself và others, Seasons of the Storm is about fate, destiny, love, và freedom. Just like any good sequel should and would, it ups the ante.

I honestly cannot give anything else away…

Because I don’t want to lớn ruin all the fantastic twists and scenes và moments Seasons of the Storm has. So, please do yourself a favor and, if you ever found yourself wishing that Rise of the Guardians got the sequel it deserved, read this book & talk to me about it. Preferably soon. Preferably now.
