"Hop" (movie) is a comedy that blends state-of-the-art CG animation with live action. From the makers of the blockbuster "Despicable Me," "Hop" tells the story of E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny.

Off the coast of South America, on the island of Rapa Nui fondly known as Easter Island, under the giant stone heads resides the most magnificent candy factory in the world. Three hundred and sixty five days a year, the Easter Bunny reigns over a crack team of bunnies and chicks who prepare the candy-filled baksets that are delivered to children around the world on Easter morning.

On the eve of being ordained his father's successor, E.B. takes off for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. once there, he counters Fred (James Marsden, of "X-Men" and "Enchanted"), recently fired and determined to pull his life together. After being kicked out of his parents' home, Fred accidently runs into E.B. Feigning injury and shocking Fred with his ability to talk, E.B. manipulates Fred into giving him free shelter.

Back on Easter Island, the Easter Bunny's second-in-command, an oversized chick named Carlos, seizes upon E.B.'s disappearance as an opportunity to plot a coup. Ultimately, Fred and E.B. are Easter's only hope, and they find themselves returning to Easter Island, locked in an epic battle to save the beloved holiday.

Marsden and Brand are joined by an all-star comedic cast, including Kaley Cuoco, Hugh Laurie, Hank Azaria, Gary Cole, Elizabeth Perkins, and TV personality Chelsea Handler.

The "Hop" movie is directed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster "Alvin and the Chipmunks," and produced by Chris Meledandri, founder of Illumination Entertainment, and Michelle Imperato Stabile. "Hop" comes from a story by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, with a screenplay by Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio, and Brian Lynch.
