Guardians of Ga'Hoole, director Zack Snyder's owl-centric animated film, has lined up a voice cast headed by Jim Sturgess, Geoffrey Rush, Rachael Taylor and David Wenhem, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the children's book series by Kathryn Lasky, the film, which is shooting in Australia, follows a young barn owl and his friends as they join forces with the mythical Guardians of Ga'hoole, owl protectors, to save the owl kingdom from rogue elements.
