Spring has sprung! Once Easter lovers are done hunting for eggs and putting on their Easter bonnets for brunch, it’s time to hunker down at home for a movie marathon. Scroll down for Us Weekly’s top 10 movies to stream this Easter — and all spring long:

Hop

The family-friendly movie follows the Easter Bunny’s son E.B. (Russell Brand) as he travels to Hollywood in search of becoming a Rockstar. The animal gets into some mischief after he befriends Fred O’Hare (James Marsden) before the duo join forces to save Easter.

Easter Parade

The 1948 Oscar-winning musical stars Judy Garland and Fred Astaire in a romantic take on the Easter season. In the film, a nightclub performer named Don Hewes (Astaire) and a chorus girl named Hannah Brown (Garland) fall in love while trying to make Don’s former dance partner jealous. Don proposes during the Easter Parade, naturally, as the couple sing and dance down the street together.

Zootopia

Easter is the perfect time to celebrate the first bunny officer, Officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) getting into the Zootopia Police Department. This animated comedy is lighthearted and packed with fun and intrigue as Judy teams up with a sneaky fox named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) in order to figure out why the predator animals are going “savage.”

The Santa Clause 2

Yes, this is a Christmas movie, but the Easter Bunny does play a big role. The bunny (played by Jay Thomas) is one of the mythical creatures that helps Santa (Tim Allen) save the winter holiday after the toy Santa tries to give all the children coal.

Peter Rabbit

James Corden as Peter Rabbit — what’s not to love? The 2008 movie gives an updated spin on the Beatrix Potter classic story of Peter Rabbit, a hare who can’t stop himself from sneaking into a farmer’s vegetable garden.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Candy and Easter go hand-in-hand, so watching 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on the sweet holiday is a must. The film follows a child named Charlie (Peter Ostrum) after he finds the last Golden Ticket to visit Willy Wonka’s (Gene Wilder) famous candy factory. In the end, his pure heart and honest personality earn Charlie the rights to the factory and his family’s money problems are gone for good.

Easter Under Wraps

The 2019 Hallmark Channel movie is colorful and candy-focused, which is reflective of the spring holiday. Erin Cavendish (Fiona Gubelmann) goes undercover at her family’s chocolate plant to learn why sales are down but doesn’t plan on falling in love with head chocolatier, Bryan Bailey (Brendan Penny), who has his own ideas on how to save the company.

It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown

It wouldn’t be Easter without tuning to see what Charlie Brown and Snoopy get themselves into ahead of the holiday. In the 1974 animated film, viewers watch the Peanuts gang prepare for the bunny-filled festivities in their own clumsy way.

Alice in Wonderland

We’re all a little mad! Alice in Wonderland is a great escape from your family on the spring holiday — or simply a way to distract yourself after eating too many sweets. Both the 1951 Disney classic and the 2010 live-action film transport viewers in a mystical world where drinking potions and eating cookies can make you big or small and tea parties with hares are normal.

Steel Magnolias

While the ‘80s movie is about friendship and heartbreak in a Louisiana town, the Easter egg hunt scene has become a memorable one among its fans. During the scene, Annelle (Daryl Hannah) goes into labor while her husband, Sammy (Kevin J. O’Connor), is wearing a giant bunny costume and playing with the kids in town.
