Ah Easter, a kid's dream and a parent or dentist's nightmare. Celebrating the resurrection of Jesus after he was crucified has come to consist of baked hams, dyed hard-boiled eggs, and baskets filled with enough sugar to make Cookie Monster diabetic. As strange as some of the holiday traditions have become, there really is something about a Reese's in the shape of an egg that make them taste better. I'll leave it to science to figure out that mystery.

In any case, it's no surprise that dozens of television and film franchises have hopped on Easter for merchandising opportunities. Sadly stuffed bunnies and chocolate lambs are no longer enough to appease kids today (kids today, I tells ya!). From Disney to Marvel, Easter is becoming the pastel version of Christmas (Black jelly beans are the new coal). Hold on to your bonnets and behold the Hollywood takeover of Easter.
