Toby Morgan is a young boy, but feels the loneliness of his strict grandmother and increasingly distant father. His discovery of the "magic attic" offers a safe haven where he finds a stuffed rabbit his mom left him before she passed away. His tears transform the rabbit into a playful animated Rabbit and his amazing animated adventures begin. Rabbit's one wish is become a real rabbit someday, and Toby's wish is to have a happy, supportive family again. Through lessons learned with the help of a Swan and Horse, and the transforming power of love, both wishes come true.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A low-key charmer that's bound to enchant small children and amuse their parents during many hours of repeat viewings."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"The live-action cast may be unknowns, but they're effective enough; the 2-D (drawn and digital) animation is winning; and the story will engross any 8-and-younger with the patience to watch it."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Rabbit has a full, gushing heart it wants to share with the audience, and released in the wake of a thousand obnoxious fart-happy distractions, its inherent gentleness and ability to remain inspired by kindness is wholeheartedly welcome."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"A family drama, based on the popular children's book, about how loving makes us real."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"While it isn't exactly a classic, it expresses the power of hope in the imaginary world and the importance of communicating our love for one another in the real world."
‑ Lisa Ann Cockrel, Christianity Today
"Family film lacks frills but has sweet message for kids."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"These days, even employing the traditional, 2-D cel style of animation seems like a quaint notion."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
