HOP Overflows with Candy, Chicks and Rock 'N Roll

We almost missed the creation of an Easter bunny themed movie last year.

Hop premiered on April 1, 2011 and turned out to be a very colorful, musical, state-of-the-art animation movie featuring live action (human) actors.

Hop was released on blu-ray disc and DVD on March 23, 2012. It promised Candy, Chicks and Rock'N Roll...let's see what HOP delivered.

HOP Storyline in 100 Words or Less

We all know that the Easter Bunny has an easy job. He works one day a year, travels the world in a single day and is loved by everyone.

Sound great? Well, it does NOT sound great to EB, the bunny whose job it is to BE the Easter Bunny this year. He finally reconciles himself to the fact that all great artists have to suffer to become great and that he will have to be the Easter Bunny.

However, young E.B. is struck by a car and the driver is forced to take in the bunny and eventually to help save Easter. In the process, both the bunny and the man are forced to grow up.

Where do jelly beans come from? - Did you know that jelly beans come from THERE?

If you do not know where jelly beans came from, we'll all know you did NOT watch the trailer, LOL. And no, It is no coincidence that this Poll comes after the age recommendation for this movie. Thought we'd throw a little potty humour right here on this page.

In Hop: Chicks Versus Bunnies

In Hop: Chicks Versus Bunnies the chicks are looking for some of the Easter Bunny's glory. When the basket-making chicks go looking for the credit they think they deserve, there is a mutiny and the Pink Berets hop in to put things right. A funny look at Easter rivals, which includes punch-out figures.

Hop: The Chapter Book
Hop: The Chapter Book

Hop: The Chapter Book finds you in E.B.'s workshop on Easter Island where E.B. wants to be a rock star and NOT the Easter Bunny. This children's chapter book loosely follows the story of HOP.


The Easter Bunny & Me

There was a host of fun, FREE Easter Bunny themed activities fon the official HOP website. One of them was the chance to put yourself in the picture with the Easter Bunny, as I have done here. Yes, that's me! There were also free games, free applications for your electronic devices and free colouring sheets.

      Hop sounds like a fun Easter movie - maybe not for the really young ones, but fun for sure!

      Hop looks like a very cute movie. I don't care much for Russell Brand but if I don't have to actually look at him I guess that would be ok. What? No Johnny Depp?
