I first saw the Redwall TV series when i was 13, and i have longed for more ever since. When i saw the movie, i was inspired. It manages to take parts from the series and edit them into one movie without deterring the plot or characters. I cheered for Matthais, chuckled at Basil Stag Hare(and Cluny) and was overall pleased by the quality of animation and music. Is the movie perfect? No, But it's not trying to be. The producers did a good job of sticking close to the books while making it more viewer friendly for youngsters as well as adults. In the end it made me want to make a new movie with similar animation and music, but the same values the movie stresses: Courage, Love, Loyalty. But if it never happens, i'll be glad that Brian Jacques allowed us Redwall fans a brief movie experience that inspires and teaches.
