Universal Pictures’ newest film HOP is a live-action/CG-animated comedy from the creators of DESPICABLE ME that hits theaters starting April 1st. This would be a fabulous way to get the kids excited for Easter! On top of that, this bunny poops jelly beans and I can just imagine the absolute joy my three and four year old boys will no doubt feel (and share) as they watch that.
Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world’s worst houseguest.
The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me).
