We love Easter. With two bank holidays making the weekend a long one, it’s such a great time to get the family together and spend some time relaxing. When the spring weather is kind it’s lovely to be out and about enjoying the fresh air but, with the usual British weather never too far away, it’s always handy to have an indoor back up plan and, for us, that’s where our Easter family films come in REALLY handy! And with the launch of the new Panasonic 4K TV, you could even be in the cinema in the comfort of your front room!
So what Easter films make our list? Well here’s our family’s top 3…
In 3rd Place is the wonderful ‘Miss Potter‘. Not actually themed around Easter…but a film about so many wonderful Easter animals which must surely qualify? A real, true to life tale of Beatrix Potter, the creator of characters like Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Jemima Puddleduck, with the scenery of the beautiful Lake District which is certainly the perfect setting for an Easter film.
In 2nd place is an absolute classic – Irving Berlin’s wonderful musical, ‘Easter Parade‘. With its fantastic choreography, brilliant musical score, gorgeous costumes and starring the legends Judy Garland and Fred Astaire, Easter Parade whisks you off into the fantasy life of a Broadway musical. It may be an oldie…but its a true classic, and really fitting for an Easter family film treat!
Hitting our top spot is a new(ish) film on the scene, Hop! Featuring E.B (the Easter Bunny’s teenage son), this animated and live action film is a wonderful family movie. Mixing adventure with comedy, it tells the tale of E.B who, though destined to become the Easter Bunny, only wants to follow his dream to become a drummer in a Rock’n’Roll band. This film keeps us all entertained and really gets us in the Easter spirit!
I hope we’ve inspired you to try a new family film this Easter – so grab the popcorn, crack open the Easter eggs and have a great family afternoon!
Do you have any Easter films that make your family top 3?
