Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
When Soren was brought before the Parliament, it is Ezlyryb who stood up for the young owl's claims. After the meeting, he congratulated Soren for making it to the tree. While teaching the Guardians-in-training to fly through a storm, he tested Soren's ability to trust his gizzard. Afterwards, Soren realized that Ezylryb was really Lyze of Kiel, but the old ryb was indifferent to his past.
Ezylryb joined the Guardians in their attack on the Pure Ones, falling into their fleck-based trap. After Soren freed them, Ezylryb went after Metal Beak and nearly defeated him. However, Nyra attacked Ezylryb, who was once again saved by Soren, who ended up slaying Metal Beak. Ezylryb consoled Soren afterwards, telling him he did what was right.
When Soren and his friends were made full Guardians, Ezylryb was among those who bowed to them, and later led them on a flight.
