Hugh Jackman Put The Danger Back Into The Easter Bunny For ‘Rise Of The Guardians’

For the animated film “Rise of the Guardians,” the creators and star Hugh Jackman had a unique challenge on their hands. How do you take the most cuddly of all mythological holiday creatures, the Easter Bunny, and turn him into something believably tough? The answer ended up being “Let Jackman be Jackman.”

In an exclusive clip from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of “Rise of the Guardians,” the recent Academy Award nominee explains how he wanted to bring a bit of himself to the Easter Bunny, keeping his manly edge and the rarely heard Australian accent.

“Rise of the Guardians” hits Blu-ray and DVD on March 12.
