Just Before Easter, Two New Easter Movies Announced


Just in time for this year's Easter weekend, two new Easter-themed movies have been announced — and they actually sound pretty darn adorable. Check it out:

Hip Hop — Sony Animation has preemptively picked up this script, planning to make it a mix of CGI and live-action. In the movie, "Easter Bunny decides to retire and hides out as a pet with a suburban family, turning their lives upside down. The tone is being described as along the lines of Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Santa Clause."

I Hop — No, not like the house of pancakes (though I kinda hope they do some kind of promotional tie-in). Anyway, this is the one that I think sounds cutest: "In I Hop, the Easter Bunny is hit by a car driven by a slacker. When the bunny can't hop because his leg is broken, the driver must train to take over the job and save Easter." Though it's probably meant to be a kids' movie, I kinda wish Seth Rogen would play the slacker in I Hop.

Looks like 2010 is gonna be hoppin'. (Ugh. Sorry, sorry!)

Honestly, Easter is my least favorite holiday but these do sound kind of cute. I think they would be more funny if they weren't intended for kids!

Umm... isn't I Hop the house of pancakes, while Hip Hop just sounds bunny-ish? Think that there might be a mixup here.
