“BBC One’s star-studded new adaptation of Watership Down uses Richard Adams’ bestselling novel as its source to bring an innovative interpretation to the much loved classic.
Adapted for the screen by Tom Bidwell and directed by Noam Murro, this tale of adventure, courage and survival follows a band of rabbits as they flee the certain destruction of their home.”
Although the computer animation is a little below what we Americans have been spoiled with, the cinematography and tone really shine in this movie. Especially with some grade A voice acting from a cast that includes James McAvoy, Ben Kingsley, John boyega, and Peter Capaldi.
Polygon reports that WATERSHIP DOWN will be released on Netflix December 22nd, being told in four 1-hour episodes.
