This is an enchanting film that follows for guardians the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, Sandman, and the Easter bunny. This four guardians work together and seek the help of jack frost to help protect the universe from an upcoming disaster.
The rise of the guardian is one cartoon that is beautifully animated and fast-paced. This is one movie you can call inventive and very original because of how brilliant the characters are and the fantastic storyline.
If you’re wondering what’s the voice acting is like, it is an inspiring one, and the humour is really contagious. This cartoon has a few good nature that will definitely resonate with viewers both young and old.

Charlton Heston played a Jewish prince in this classic saga. A prince who is battling with the Roman empire at the time of Christ.
This prince and his entire family are sent into slavery because of his actions, but after an inspirational encounter with Jesus, everything changed. Ben-Hur was released in 1959, and at the time it had the most massive budget for any movie produced. This film also took home a total of 11 academy awards.
This one doubtedly can be considered as one of the best films as far as biblical epics go. Ben-Hur still ranks among Hollywood’s best examples of pure entertainment as it ensures that the viewers are entirely engulfed in the story of Judah Ben-Hur throughout the film.
This movie is almost four hours long, so you understand how difficult it is to keep people interested for such a long time. This movie is a spectacle film, but the main story is profoundly moving and human as the viewers follow a man who takes on the tyranny of the Roman empire with the devastating consequences.
4. Pieces of easter
This movie has a fairly basic plot. An arrogant lady is on her way home for Easter with her estranged family. This arrogant young executive is forced to rely on the help of a farmer to get to her destination in time.
However, we need to fix it there are so many Easter movies to choose from as a matter of fact Hollywood has been reluctant to make more movies about easter they seem to have ignored the holiday altogether.
We have decided to take what we can get, and when it comes as a romantic comedy film inspired by the story of the prodigal son, we have so much to be grateful for.
If you are in search of a feel-good film that will leave you laughing and appreciating those you love, this is the right one. Regardless of its straightforward plot, the film does not dwell on any kind of stereotypes to tell its story.
It’s an insightful film that preaches the message of human connection, especially during this holiday season. The two lead characters play their roles perfectly, and that’s one reason you will stay glued to your TV.
The Easter bunny has done a great job of bringing chocolate and lots of joy to children all around the world for the past 4000 years. Now the tradition has to be continued by a new Easter bunny.
The Easter bunny has a teenage son known as EB who is next in line to receive the official title. EB would rather be a rockstar than an Easter bunny, and he does all he can to make his father understand that.
EB finds a way to escape to Hollywood in an attempt to chase his dreams, and there he finds a new friend has some life-changing adventures.
Hops are far from being the perfect film, but it’s fun for the most part. Kids will love the fast-paced action and the humour that comes with the movie, while us adults man just giggles at the occasional jokes.
6. Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
One may want to say that the movie “who framed Roger Rabbit?” has nothing at all to do with Easter, but as you can tell from the title, one of the main characters is a rabbit and that automatically qualifies it to be on this list.
You must know that this film is one of the most inventive ones to have ever been made by Hollywood, so you would always want to rewatch it.
The film is set during the late 1940s in an environment where people and animated characters coexist. In this film, we will follow a private detective called Eddy Valiant who agrees reluctantly to exonerate Roger Rabbit, a cartoon accused of murder.
Almost 30 years after the release of this movie it remains smart, funny, and touching. You would find this movie a fascinating one and worthy of your time.
