Hop Featurette: Interesting Take on the Easter Bunny
I am not quite sure how to take Hop as a movie or as a story. E.B. is the teenage son of the Easter Bunny, and on the eve of taking over the family business, he leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. Once there, he encounters Fred, an unemployed slacker with his own lofty goals. Feigning injury, E.B. persuades Fred to take him in, and Fred finds himself living with the world’s worst house guest.
Back on Easter Island, E.B.’s former home, a power-hungry chick that has lived in the shadows for far too long has been plotting a coup to take over one of the biggest jobs in the world. You guessed it: delivering Easter eggs. Now that E.B.’s gone, he’s got his chance. As E.B. discovers who he really wants to be and who he’s meant to become, everything will lead him and Fred in an epic showdown to try and save Easter.
Hop includes live actors as well as voice actors: Russell Brand, James Marsden, Kaley Cuoco and Hank Azaria.
