Soren and his brother, two young owls, are kidnapped by a cult of evil owls who brainwash younglings. Soren manages to escape to the mythical land of Ga'Hoole and learns that the legends have become a fact. While undergoing training from his elders, Soran finds himself becoming emotional distant from his confused brother.
The magnified action scenes suffer from too many closeups of owl talons, which might prove too intense for preschool viewers. Fans of Kathryn Lasky's novel will appreciate **Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole** for it's all purpose storytelling.
