Last year's Easter themed movie HOP, starring James Marsden and the voice of Russell Brand, comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD Combo Packs just in time for Easter this year.
Released on March 23, the HOP Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Packs will include an all-new, never-before-seen, music-filled mini-movie, extensive bonus features with behind the scenes footage of Russell Brand, and interactive games, adding hours of entertaining fun for parents and children alike. The mini-movie stars Phil and Carlos, the chicks of HOP. Teen sensation Cody Simpson also performs the film's theme song, "I Want Candy" and featured in the premiere footage.
Blending CGI animation with live action, HOP is a non-stop, rockin’ adventure packed with humor and hijinks as rebellious young rabbit E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), strikes up an unlikely friendship with Los Angeles underachiever Fred (James Marsden) en route to becoming a rock star drummer.
Directed by Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and produced by Chris Meledandri (Despicable Me), HOP features hilarious performances by James Marsden (X-Men, Enchanted), Russell Brand (Despicable Me, Get Him to the Greek), Hank Azaria (The Simpsons), Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory), Hugh Laurie (House), Gary Cole (Talladega Nights), Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds) and David Hasselhoff (America’s Got Talent).
