    There have been several movie versions of Alice in Wonderland, from Disney's animated version to several live action films, including this one which is the most the most recent release, directed by Tim Burton.

  15. Thumper from Bambi
  16. Bambi

    Of course, no consideration of the role of Rabbits in cinema would be complete without a mention of Thumper, friend and mentor to Bambi. Thumper teaches Bambi about the ways of the forest and about friendship.

    As Disney's most moving, tearjerking film, it is widely regarded as one of Disney's greatest masterpieces.

  17. Harvey
  18. Harvey

    No round-up of movies with rabbits would be complete without Harvey, starring James Stewart as a man who believes that he is accompanied anywhere by a human sized rabbit called Harvey, and so tries to introduce him to everybody. Never was eccentricity so funny and charming.

  19. Hop
  20. Hop

    Combining animation with live action, Hop tells the comic tale of Fred, an out–of–work slacker who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny  and must take him in until he has recovered.
