HOP Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy Review

by Heather Smith on April 1, 2012 · 170 comments

HOP Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy released 3/23



From the makers of Despicable Me comes an all-new comedy about candy, chicks and rock ‘n’ roll!

He was destined to be the Easter Bunny, but all he wanted to do was rock!  When teenage E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream to become a rock star drummer, he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals.  Together the two encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures and in the end help each other recognize the importance of family.

Blending state-of-the-art CGI animation with live action, HOP is a non-stop, rockin’ adventure packed with humor and hijinks as a rebellious young rabbit (voiced by Russell Brand), strikes up an unlikely friendship with Los Angeles underachiever Fred (James Marsden) en route to becoming a rock star drummer.


  • Phil’s Dance Party An All-New Mini-Movie starring fan-favorite chicks Phil and Carlos. Phil eats so much candy that he crashes, leaving Carlos to perform a solo of the big dance finale…the Merengue!
  • The World of HOPExplore an interactive map of Easter Island to experience the making of HOP.
  • All Access with Cody SimpsonThe best-selling teenage heartthrob performs the film’s catchy theme song, “I Want Candy” and attends the HOP world premiere, his first Hollywood movie red carpet event.
  • Russell Brand: Being the Bunny—A wacky look at what happens in Russell’s brain as he prepares to become THE Easter Bunny.
  • Russell Brand’s Kid Crack UpsRussell Brand interviews kids with comedic results.
  • Carlos on Carlos: The Premiere According to CarlosExperience the world premiere of HOP from the POV of Carlos. Viewers are given a guided tour of the party, where they can meet celebs and see all the fun!
  • Emotion in Motion: The Dance of Ken DaurioWriter Ken Daurio sits down to discuss his inspiration for everyone’s favorite dancing chick and reveals just how hard it was to teach Phil those awesome moves.
  • Post Coup Commentary: Carlos & Phil Tell AllActor Hank Azaria reveals the truth about Carlos’ and Phil’s relationship, and how they imagined Easter Island would be if their coup had been successful.

This is an adorable movie the entire family enjoyed. E.B. is a typical teenager (bunny) that is destined to be the next Easter Bunny. He rebels against this and actually runs away. The storyline has cute twists and turns and in the end E.B. realizes that he can still fulfill his obligations and live his dream at the same time. The kids giggled and laughed several times and we all fell in love (and want to squeeze) E.B.
