Show, don't tell. It's one of the cardinal rules of movie making that's often overlooked. An early sequence that only made it to the thumbnail stage before it was decided that the events should happen off screen, was Pitch, the Boogeyman attacking the Easter Bunny's kingdom. In this version that I wrote and boarded, Pitch makes himself known to the Guardians for the first time. This sequence also served as Bunny and North's introductions into the film. I think any version of the battle would have been great to see. Then again, maybe Star Wars famous Death Star battle sequence would have been more exciting had the characters just talked about how awesome it was after the fact. The scene starts as Bunny's minions have mistakenly taken the Tooth Fairy prisoner. Here's part one.
