Big Bug Bunny is the second Open Movie after Elephants Dream and it is really astonishing what a team of dedicated artists can create with a limited budget. The quality of the movie is excellent and comparable to popular Dreamworks creations. Unlike those, Big Bug Bunny can be freely distributed and is already available in various formats and on select video portals.
The video is available in the formats MP4, H.264, Ogg and MSMP4 and resolutions 1920x1080, 1280x720 and 854x480 as well as versions for Sony's PSP. The direct downloads are rather slow at the moment, and I suggest to use the torrent downloads for fast and speedy transfers.
The story begins a bit slow but it's nice and entertaining. Have fun, exactly the right thing for a Sunday. The movie has a total playtime of 10 minutes, and the best way of watching it directly is on one of the video hosting sites it has been uploaded to as you do not have to wait to start watching it.
If you or your children prefer to watch movies on the television, you can either stream it to a gaming system to play the movie, or burn it to DVD to do so instead. A DVD Iso image of the movie is available at archive.org where it can be downloaded, and then burned to DVD to play it on regular DVD players. Some video gaming systems can load contents from portals such as YouTube directly, which may be the preferred option to play the video on the TV.
The developers have also made available the entire Blender studio backup, which has a size of more than 200 Gigabytes. Could be an interesting download for users of Blender.
Here is the Vimeo version of the video which you can view with a click on the play button.
