The Christmas Bunny is the story of a Michigan family, facing tough economic times, who take in a withdrawn foster child, Julia (Sophie Bolen). Convinced she's unlovable, Julia dreams of becoming "real," like the Velveteen Rabbit in her treasured storybook video. When a real-life rabbit is injured by her foster brother in an accident, Julia meets the Bunny Lady, a local recluse who cares for people's cast-away pets, and both their lives are changed by the encounter.Written by
"Rumple", the diminutive "star" of The Christmas Bunny was played in the film by "Rupert", a French Mini Lop rabbit who lived at The Critter Barn in Zeeland, Michigan, just outside of Grand Rapids. Rupert was born in late summer of 2009 and was about 6 months old when the film was shot. Rupert lived a good life, but had troubles with his teeth. He enjoyed eating canned pumpkin for years, in addition to some hay and pellets. He was laid to rest on Wednesday, August 6, 2014. He was a sweet, playful bunny who won the hearts of thousands through his performance in The Christmas Bunny. See more »
Really loved the film- only wished the girl had been a little more grateful to the lady who looked after her rabbit.I'm not sure about the realism of feeding Candy to a rabbit as I never would dream of it plus I don't believe many bunnies would even want it. It reminded me of my own emotional connection to a bunny I used to have and it also very moving that it enabled them to create a family. Was quite distressing and emotional in places. I wasn't sure about the decision not to get another companion for the rabbit. From my own experience of keeping rabbits, they can get very lonely and aggressive if left alone regularly.
