We study laser light propagation in a cell containing a liquid crystal in the nematic phase. We launch hyper-Gaussian beams and follow their behavior within the cell, in time and in three spatial dimensions, utilizing an appropriately developed theoretical model and a numerical procedure based on the fast Fourier transform. We demonstrate the formation of stable "hyper-soliton" breathers in a narrow region of beam intensities, for fixed other parameters. Hyper-solitons are similar in appearance and behavior to the usual solitons, formed by launching the usual Gaussian beams; however noticeable differences persist.
