Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole?

There’s obviously a connection here.

The Guardians in Halo are kind of shaped like owls, and if you’ve ever seen the 2010 movie Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, the owls in that movie are Guardians, and are also shaped like owls.

Coincidence? Maybe not.
