Paramount Home Entertainment has officially detailed the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack releases of Rise of the Guardians and Rise of the Guardians 3D. Nominated for Best Animated Feature, the superpowered DreamWorks Animation adventure brings the mythical fight to Blu-ray on March 12th.

The animation was incredible. Some amazing 3D effects too. But I just couldn't take serious of Santa and Bunny holding weapons. Still worth seeing for animation alone. Maybe I will be more accepting on my second viewing.
