When the evil spirit Pitch launches an assault on Earth, the Immortal Guardians team up to protect the innocence of children all around the world.
Whenever North is surprised or alarmed, he exclaims loudly with the name of a classical Russian composer. For example, he yells, "Shostakovich!'' just before he falls down the rabbit hole, and "Rimsky-Korsakov! That's a lot of eggs!" in Bunnymund's warren (relevant composers: Dmitri Shostakovich and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov). This may be an homage to the "Rocky & Bullwinkle" cartoons, where Boris Badenov's favorite expression was "Raskolnikov!," the criminal from Fyodor Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment." It may also be a nod to Ira Gershwin's and Kurt Weill's famous novelty song from Lady In The Dark, "Tchaikovsky," the lyrics of which consist entirely of the names of various famous Russian composers, including the ones used by North. In the beginning of the movie, when North is making a train set out of ice, he can also be heard humming to famous Russian composer Igor Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite". All of this could also be a reference to Alec Baldwin's (who voices North) love of classical music.
Darkness. That's the first thing I remember. It was dark, and it was cold. And I was scared.
When talking about the egg hunt, Jamie and his friends say it's on Sunday. However, on the banners in the street (visible when Jack and Sandman are talking to Pitch) it says that the egg hunt is on Saturday.
The DreamWorks Animation logo has Jack Frost on the moon, and he uses his powers to cover the logo in frost and crackle off snowflakes.
