Rating: PG, mild sense of peril and coarse language.

The clan from the Rabbit Academy will be hopping into cinemas at Easter, but beware, celebration time is in danger. It’s going to be time for a rabbit to trust a fox to save the occasion. Is that possible?

This German animated family film is sure to delight small children over the holidays … as this is a mission eggpossible!

Max is the first city rabbit ever to be chosen in the master class for Easter rabbits. When the Easter rabbits’ most powerful magical possession, the ‘golden egg’, turns black, Max and his friends must find their very own superpower to protect Easter.

The bunny school is in turmoil. The cunning Leo, leader of a gang of city rabbits, wants to destroy Easter, and tricks a family of foxes into stealing all the Easter eggs.

Max aspires to outshine, but makes a daunting enemy after humiliating Leo.

Max’s only chance to save Easter lies in teaming up with the fox Ferdinand, but can a rabbit really trust a fox? The Easter bunnies and their friends have to team up to stop the destruction. With the wise Madame Hermione they practise the mysterious ‘power bundle’ and learn what it means to really trust someone – even a fox.

The voice roles are impressive: Senta Berger is the voice of Madame Hermine; Friedrich von Thun is Eitelfritz; Katharina Straße is Gudrun; Noah Levi is Max; Sebastian Fitzner is Leo; and Jule Böwe is Ruth.

Ute von Münchow-Pohl (A Piece of Cake, Raven the Little Rascal) delivers animation where the characters and the backdrops have a snazzy appeal.

  • Cinema release date for Rabbit Academy is 7 April
