Holiday movies are some of the best times to gather the family all together, sit down and appreciate a good film about all kinds of wacky characters and plot lines.

Easter is no exception, it may not be as popular for the film industry as other holidays, but all the same, we’ve seen some truly funny and creative films about our favorite bunny.

So as Easter rounds the corner it’s not too late to gather up the family and enjoy a nice movie. Here are some of our favorite Easter-related movies.

  • Here Come Peter Cottontail (1971)

    Before modern technology revolutionized the world of animated film, Claymation was the way to go as seen with this early 1970s classic. Portrays a rabbit named Peter Cottontail setting out on a journey to fix a grave error and save Easter. It may not be the best looking as Claymation has gone through the test of time, but the overall message and trill hold up. Maybe as you paint eggs your favorite color you can look back at this old classic.

  • It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (1974)

    Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned Charlie Brown special? Capturing that peanuts style humor Snoopy is portrayed as the Easter Beagle a clever play on words. While Charlie Brown may be out of luck as far as Easter eggs go, watching this classic will leave viewers happy some may even remember watching it when it was released. Overall if you’re looking for a light-hearted and genuinely amusing special. Grab your favorite Easter treat and enjoy.

  • Hop (2011)

    Hop was an early attempt at capturing that playful Easter spirit in a mix of live-action and CGI. The story followed the son of the Easter Bunny. Instead of wanting to take over his father’s legacy as the Easter Bunny wants to become a drummer. Causing him to flee to Hollywood to chase his dreams. While the film is about to turn 11 years old, it’s still a hit to families and friends looking for a good laugh to share as you try and find an egg-cellent egg hiding spot.

  • Rise of the Guardians (2012)

    While Rise of the Guardians shows off all of the holidays. We do get a cool version of the Easter Bunny as he and the other guardians protect the children of the world. If you’re looking for a film with more action this one is right up your alley. It certainly was a favorite when it came out and despite it being nearly ten years old. It still has some funny moments and impacts messages within.

  • The Dog Who Saved Easter (2014)

    The Dog Who Saved Easter is a very cute and interesting film about a loveable canine called Zeus who thwarts a crime trio’s attempt to harm a doggy daycare. The humor and overall antics are very similar to the Home Alone franchise, but with the interesting twist that a dog is the one saving the day. Do you like to dress your pet up like the Easter Bunny? Sit back and relax with this light-hearted comedy romance.
