5 Easter movies worth watching*

This Easter weekend why not snuggle up with the family on the sofa and watch some Easter themed films on a Panasonic Viera tv. These all feature bunnies or Easter traditions. Do you have favourite Easter films or TV shows?

The first film on my list is a modern classic. It is a brilliantly funny film, with both animation and live action. It has bunny rabbits, Easter chicks, lots of chocolate and seasonal fun. Oh and jelly beans are rabbit poop…..

The life of Brian.

Monty Python is timeless genius. It’s witty, sarcastic and at times hysterically amusing. There is a religious under tone but it is in no way a serious film. Brian is Jesus, well sort of!

Watership Down.

Approach this cartoon with caution. It is not for tiny children. It is gruesome, and scary but there is no denying it was a great piece of animation. Even I hide behind the sofa for certain scenes.


It starts off badly with the death of Bambi’s mother at the hands of a hunter, but the scenes with Thumper the rabbit make it a charming bit of my childhood. In fact I named one of my own bunnies Thumper after this film.

Miss Potter.

This PG rated biography is all about Beatrix Potter herself. It documents her life and has appearances from her beloved woodland friends throughout the movie. Peter rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck count as Easter-ish right?

Alice in Wonderland.

A modern remake of the famous book, this features lot of fantastical creatures, but very importantly it has the White Rabbit. This works for Easter, or all year round – Mum’s it has Johnny Depp in it. (You’re welcome!)


So grab yourself some popcorn or some chocolate eggs and get cosy on the sofa with the family this Spring. Remember, real bunnies are bad Easter gifts, chocolate bunnies are fine.
