6 Easter movies that parents and kids can enjoy together

There are more Easter themed movies than you'd think. These five great kid-friendly Easter movies will keep your whole family entertained this Holy Week

Easter Sunday has a fair amount of iconic traditions: going to church, Easter egg hunts, the arrival of the Easter bunny—there’s actually quite a lot going on this time of year.

While Easter is a major holiday all around the world, there is one thing that Easter lacks when compared to its holiday counterparts: movies.

New Christmas movies come out once a year, just about every horror movie works for Halloween, but there just aren’t any good movies to bring your family together on Easter, right? WRONG!

We embarked on an Easter movie hunt, and gathered some kid-friendly Easter films that you and your whole family can enjoy this Holy Week.

Check out our list of six movies perfect for bringing your family together on Easter Sunday:

1. It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown
