Storyline

Heeding the warning of a vision of their old home's destruction, a group of rabbits led by Hazel, his brother Fiver the visionary, the ever inventive doe, Blackberry, and Bigwig, a former member of their old home's military class, go in search of a new home. With the help of new found friends like Kehaar the gull and Hannah the mouse, Fiver's vision leads them to a home called Watership Down. Now, Hazel and his friends must establish their warren and protect it from the threats they face which include humans, predators, and especially the menace of a tyrannically militaristic warren led by the merciless General Woundwart.

Watership Down hits TV
25 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have watched the series when it was on TV, and I have absolutely love it; and like with Redwall, this series is what got to read the original book.

As I said (like about million times),I was shocked and flabbergasted by the negativity I would heard on the Internet, 'cause I have love the animation,and the brilliant casting that was in put into the show. All you fans to the original novel might not like this, but I love Blackberry as girl, because she could land a cute guy like Campion; and I love Hazel & Primrose, they are favorite couple (I know Primrose is Hyzenthlay, the main girl from the book and film because children wouldn't be able to pronounce the name).
