Disney In The House: Easter Egg Hunt is a 2021 American live-action/animated family film produced by Walt Disney Wonder Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It serves as the sequel to 2020's Disney In The House: World Animals and the tenth installment in the Disney In The House Cinematic Universe. Directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, it stars Sarah Silverman, Owen Laramore, Dakota Fanning (via archive recordings of her child voice), Ginnifer Goodwin, and Ed O'Neill reprising their roles from the previous films, with newcomers including Hugo Weaving, Justin Timberlake, Frances McDormand, Charlyne Yi, and Constance Wu. In the film, Vanellope von Schweetz and the gang go on the search for Easter Eggs hidden and scattered all over a village inhabited by purple rabbits, only for their chief to strictly declare "Spring Cleaning Day" instead of Easter.

Disney In The House: Easter Egg Hunt was released on April 16, 2021, simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ through Premiere Access, due to the negative impact on movie theaters caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The film received mixed reviews from critics, but, despite the pandemic, was a modest box office success, grossing $339 million worldwide against a $125 million budget. A sequel, Disney In The House: Oceans, was released on August 19, 2022.
