This review of the movie contains the following information:
Students of the Rabbit Academy eagerly await news of who will be chosen to become Master Rabbits. When the golden egg finally reveals that one of the chosen is a city rabbit named Max (voice of Callum Maloney), not everyone is happy. Emmy (voice of Lucy Carolan), however, couldn’t be more pleased and can hardly wait until she can see her friend again. Meanwhile, in the city, Max defends a small rabbit who is being bullied by Leo (voice of Cameron Simpson), a nasty, selfish, self-made media sensation. When Max accidentally destroys the stage for Leo’s next social media broadcast, and ‘borrows’ his bike, Leo vows revenge and follows Max to the countryside. Here, Leo falls into league with a dysfunctional family of foxes who want nothing more than to outsmart the rabbits and become ‘Easter foxes’, beloved by all. Leo, on the other hand, wants to sabotage Easter and destroy all the eggs the Rabbit Academy has been preparing. When Ferdinand (voice of Jonas Elkhawad), the cleverest and kindest of the foxes, learns what Leo is really planning his family won’t believe him, so he heads to The Rabbit Academy to offer his services to help save the holiday. But will they be able to trust him and will working together be enough to save Easter?

Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
There is some violence in this movie, including:
A fox picks up a young rabbit and everyone turns on him, ready to chase him down and attack.
Children under five are most likely to be frightened by scary visual images, such as monsters, physical transformations.
Children aged five to eight will also be frightened by scary visual images and will also be disturbed by depictions of the death of a parent, a child abandoned or separated from parents, children or animals being hurt or threatened and / or natural disasters.
Children aged eight to thirteen are most likely to be frightened by realistic threats and dangers, violence or threat of violence and / or stories in which children are hurt or threatened.
There is some coarse language in this movie, including:
Rabbit Academy: Mission Eggpossible is an animated adventure with bright, colourful graphics and a largely predictable plot. The storyline and animation style lends itself to a younger audience but the language and name calling is surprising in such a film as it is largely inappropriate for younger viewers.
The main messages from this movie are that trust and unity will give you and your community a strength you never knew you had and a power you never dreamed you could possess.
Values in this movie that parents may wish to reinforce with their children include:
