The Easter period is here, so as you ponder at the window waiting for the summer sunshine, why not settle down with a bowl of popcorn – or an early Easter egg – and have a movie marathon with some of these classic Easter films.
Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo (2004)
Follow the path through Hundred Acre Wood to an all-new, full-length feature starring Winnie the Pooh and his pals! Join them for this spectacular springtime adventure that celebrates the magic of the season and the true meaning of friendship. Roo is upset when Rabbit cancels Easter and declares “Spring Cleaning Day” instead.
Judah Ben-Hur, a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, an officer in the Roman army, returns to his homeland after years at sea to seek revenge but finds redemption.
Baby Looney Tunes: Eggs-traordinary Adventure (2003)
The Baby Looney Tunes characters go on a search for the true meaning of Easter. A great family fun film, especially for the children in the family!
Son of God (2014)
As a feature film, it both expands upon and abridges the Jesus-driven portions of the miniseries, from birth to resurrection, which we now celebrate as Easter. It’s a political thriller wrapped in an epic hundreds and hundreds of extras and special effects with miracles.
Rise of the Guardians (2012)
Another family-friendly animated adventure, Rise of the Guardians rounds up all the fantastical fairy tale childhood heroes – Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost, the Sandman, and of course, the Easter Bunny – to fight the evil forces that threaten to engulf the world in darkness.
It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (1974)
There’s a Peanuts cartoon for every holiday, it seems, and something about spending a festive event with Charlie and his pals feels wildly comforting. This special features the “Easter Beagle” instead of the Great Pumpkin, who takes his form in Snoopy.
The Last Temptation of Christ (1988)
If you really want to feel the nature of Jesus Christ and his sacrifices this Easter, check out Martin Scorsese’s film about God’s son, a simple man who makes the difficult decision to accept his calling in life. The film is a colorful, hallucinatory, uncensored depiction of that period as Scorsese imagines it.
This family-friendly film from the creators of Despicable Me blends animation and live actors to the tale of the Easter Bunny and his son, E.B., who travels to Hollywood in search of rock n’ roll stardom. He befriends Fred (James Marsden) and the duo team up to save Easter.
This film turns Easter into a gritty period piece, with Joseph Fiennes starring as a Roman Centurion, Clavius, on the hunt for Jesus’ body after it mysteriously disappears following his crucifixion. Cliff Curtis stars as the Christ himself. With incredible production, gore galore, and Britain’s finest actors, it’s the Easter story by way of Gladiator.
Peter Rabbit (2018)
The troublesome rabbit from the lovely coloured-picture books comes to the big screen this season as the irreverent Peter Rabbit (voiced by James Corden) who longs for the affection of his tender-hearted neighbour (Rose Byrne) against his infamous nemesis, Mr McGregor (Domhall Gleeson). The partially-animated feature is a fun and silly take on the classic tale and will get you hopping into your Easter spirit.
With over 1,030 minutes of film footage, we’re sure the run-up to Easter will be as joyful as possible!
