Hop could just be the unlikely box office smash of the Spring. The animated/live action film has a quirky plot featuring E.B., the Easter Bunny’s teenage son, who heads to Hollywood, determined to become a drummer in a rock ‘n’ roll band. In LA, he’s taken in by Fred after the out-of-work slacker hits E.B. with his car.
Blending state-of-the-art animation with live action, Hop tells the comic tale of Fred, an out-of-work slacker who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny and must take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world’s worst house guest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up
E.B. is voiced by Russell Brand with Hugh Laurie as his father the Easter Bunny. James Marsden is the hapless Fred, but the movie is stolen by Hank Azaria who voices two of the main protagonists - one of which - Carlos: the leader and biggest of the Easter Chicks who speaks with a Spanish-language accent who has grown tired of always being Mr. Bunny’s Number 2 (or lieutenant) and decides to lead a coup d’état so that Easter Chicks will be in charge of Easter instead of the Easter Bunny.
