Not Your Typical Easter Bunny…

November 21, 2012

– – In the upcoming movie,  Rise of the Guardians, furry interests are well represented by the character of E. Aster Bunnymund, the Easter Bunny on steroids and with an attitude.  Voiced by none less than Hugh Jackman (“Wolverine“), this bunny is calm and friendly to kids, but features an Australian accent, deploys egg bombs, and throws a mean boomerang!   The film is based on William Joyce’s bestselling Guardians of Childhood book series.

Part chocolatier, part ninja, and part zen master, Bunnymund teams with other childhood heroes such as Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), Jack Frost (Chris Pine), and the Sandman to protect children all over the world on Christmas from an evil spirit known as Pitch Black (Jude Law). 

While cheesy at times and perhaps evocative of X-Men, this CG animated picture from Dreamworks should be fun and worth seeing for Jackman’s short-tempered, alpha version of the Easter Bunny…just don’t call him a kangaroo!
