Don't exactly know what the story is about, but with that crew, it must be pretty good.

Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. He and his new friends escape to the island of Ga'Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls who fight the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie's. The film is based on the first three books in the series.

Hmm. It may be good, it may not. I read the first five books in the series a long time ago and enjoyed them, but I think the author should have stopped there. The ones that come after, in my opinion, aren't very good, especially the ones that came out recently.

With all those people working on it it'll probably be good. I wonder what kind of animation it will have.

Sounds intriguing, a little bit like The Golden Compass.
