Benjamin Le Ster,
An adaptation of the award-winning novel by Andrea Levy. Set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica, following the trials, tribulations and survival of July and her odious mistress Caroline on a sugar plantation.
Set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, the adventure tale follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, toward a promised land and a more perfect society.
Nicolas Hoult has portrayed J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings. The original Watership Down featured John Hurt and Michael Graham Cox, who also worked together in The Lord of the Rings. See more »
Decent animation series, though nothing outstanding
I haven't read the book, so I'm not sure if they got it right, but as someone watching the mini-series without any previous background, I thought it was well done. I'd recommend watching with subtitles because as others have said, the rabbits look similar and if you see the names written with the dialogue, the story and characters are easier to follow. The animation is pretty and it creates a nice world with its production design.
It's dark and probably heavy for young children, but I think the message is important so it's worth watching for that.
