This animated kids adventure about a group of rabbits, successfully and cheerfully gets across a complex message. Rabbit School: Guardians of the Golden Egg is a solid depiction of integration and open-mindedness, all wrapped up in a fun and fluffy Easter tale. The movie's messages of friendship and perseverance work well, too. A countryside vs. city debate weighs heavily on the side of the former. But to be fair to the movie's art department, they sure make it look nice. The character art is distinctive, too, closer to the innovative artwork of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse than just another Pixar mimic.

The one use of "aw, crap" -- in the English language dub -- stands out as unnecessary but is delivered quickly and will likely be missed by younger children. There's no reason for it to be there though. In its intro, the movie retells the story of Easter as a time when animals gave back to humans to thank them for when they left them food during a harsh winter. As such, viewers who prefer a more traditional Christian take on what Easter is about had best look elsewhere. But those looking for a light and breezy adventure with a good message should find lots to enjoy.
