Following in the wake left by Alvin and the Chipmunks, Universal has returned to the live-action mixed with CGI genre with the help of Despicable Me creators Illumination Entertainment, to present the live-action and CGI Hop.
Hop is the story of E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the son of the Easter Bunny, and only heir to the throne. The date has come for E.B. to step up and take over the family business, but rather than take on the role he was born into, E.B. decides to head to Hollywood to try his luck as a drummer. When he gets there, he is hit by a car driven by Fred (James Marsden). E.B. fakes serious injuries and Fred takes him into his house, unaware that the bunny is an epically bad house guest.
Directed by Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties), Hop also stars the Hugh Laurie (voice), Elizabeth Perkins, Chelsea Handler and David Hasselhoff. Look for it on April 1.
