Students of the Rabbit Academy eagerly await news of who’ll 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’s 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’ Leo’s bike, Leo vows revenge and follows Max to the countryside.
Here Leo teams up with a dysfunctional family of foxes, who want to outsmart the rabbits and become Easter foxes, beloved by all. Leo, on the other hand, just 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. Ferdinand heads to the Rabbit Academy to help save the holiday. But will the academy rabbits trust him? Will working together be enough to save Easter?
