Emilie de Ravin plays Eglantine, left, a good friend of Soren, center, and a member of the owls' search-and-rescue team. Jim Sturgess plays Soren, while Ryan Kwanten provides the voice for Kludd, right, Soren's jealous brother. "Soren is a classic hero," Snyder says. "He loves his sister, who is sweet, but smart beyond her years. He's a dreamer. He loves myths and stories. Kludd sees all that as weakness."
