Still Dream

So I wanted to learn more about the production of Rise of the Guardians, and now I’m crying.

According to the Rise of the Guardians wikipedia page, the author of the book series, William Joyce, was working along side with Dreamworks until his daughter died of a brain tumor. (confirmed here)

"The idea for the Guardians came from Joyce’s daughter, who asked him "if he thought Santa Claus had ever met the Easter Bunny." The film includes a dedication to her, as well a song, "Still Dream," sung over the end credits." (wikipedia)
I was actually listening to Still Dream while I read this. It is an absolutely gorgeous song that you can listen to here. Knowing the meaning behind the lyrics makes it the most loving, heart-breaking thing I’ve ever heard.
My heart goes out to William Joyce, and to his daughter. I’m certain the Guardians were with her to the very end, and even beyond that.


"Time to close your eyes, but when you awake, still dream."
