Rise of the Guardians Movie Storybook Deluxe is, quite obviously, a storybook app based on “Rise of the Guardians.”
Showing in theaters beginning Nov. 21., “Rise of the Guardians” is the latest 3-D computer-animated film from DreamWorks.
Just as it did with the storybook apps of “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Kung Fu Panda,” and others, DreamWorks has partnered with iOS publisher iStoryTime for the storybook app of “Rise of the Guardians.”
Rise of the Guardians Movie Storybook Deluxe is essentially a retelling of the movie. An interactive storybook with built-in narration and animation, the app invites readers to:
… follow Jack Frost, North, Tooth, Bunny and Sandy as they come together for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of the children from the evil spirit known as Pitch.
Apart from the app’s main story, which supports Auto Play, Read To Me, and Read To Myself, two special add-ons are included in Rise of the Guardians Movie Storybook Deluxe: Russian Dolls and The Sandman.
Russian Dolls allows you to customize and share a matryoshka or nesting doll set with your own photos and messages. The Sandman, for its part, lets you use an animated alarm clock featuring, rather appropriately, Sandy the Guardian of Dreams.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Rise of the Guardians Movie Storybook Deluxe is available now in the App Store for the special introductory price of $0.99.
