#3. Bugs Bunny’s Easter Funnies
Bugs Bunny’s Easter Funnies weaves together classic Looney Tunes with newly animated sequences, creating an all new story for kids and Looney fans of all ages.
When the Easter Bunny is sick, Bugs and friends try their hand at taking over the job. Well, it seems like another bunny, one named Bugs in particular, might be the most apt at hopping around playing Easter Rabbit, but Sylvester, Pepe Le Pew, Foghorn Leghorn and Daffy all want to get in on the fun as well.
#4. Ben Hur (1959)
Ben-Hur is a 1959 American epic historical drama film set in ancient Rome, starring Charlton Heston. It won a record 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. When a Jewish prince is betrayed and sent into slavery by a Roman friend, he regains his freedom and comes back for revenge.
The film was the most expensive ever made at the time, and its sets were the largest yet built for a film. The picture contains a nine-minute chariot race which has become one of cinema’s most famous sequences.
#5. Alvin and The Chipmunks:The Mystery of The Easter Chipmunk (2009)
A very cute film featuring 3 squeeky voices we know and love. This movie will be a hit with your kids.
The catchy music adds to the great story lines in “The Easter Chipmunk” where Alvin is sure that the real easter bunny is in fact his grampa – a chipmunk! There is a surprising twist with a great few: “AAALLLVVINN!!” shouts from Dave! It’s great to watch on Easter with a handful of chocolate.
