Hop is a 2011 American Easter-themed live-action/animated comedy family film by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment, directed by Tim Hill and produced by Chris Meledandri and Michele Imperato Stabile.
The MPAA gave the film a PG for some mild rude humor. E.B. was designed by Peter de Sève, most famous for the work on the Ice Age characters. The CGI animation of the film was made by Los Angeles based Rhythm & Hues Studios. The theme song ("I Want Candy") was performed by Australian pop/R&B singer Cody Simpson.
The film begins with the Easter version of the Universal Pictures logo. The film tells of E.B., a teenage rabbit who on the eve of taking over from his father as the Easter Bunny, leaves his home in Easter Island for Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer, and is hit by Fred O'Hare, an out of work slacker who was driving home. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred to take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world's worst house guest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up, as Fred is pressed to partner with E.B. to save Easter from an evil Easter Chick named Carlos, who wants Easter Chicks to be in charge of Easter.
