Years after the siege of Redwall Abbey by Cluny the Scourge, Matthais and Cornflower have a hotheaded son named Mattimeo who dreams of succeeding his father as the Defender of the Abbey. Unknown to them, a malevolent fox called Slagar the Cruel is plotting a terrible revenge on Redwall. With his gang posing as entertainers, he renders the population of Redwall unconscious and kidnaps nearly all the children, including Mattimeo, to become slaves. When the adults of Redwall awaken, Matthais and his friends must undertake the despairingly difficult search for their children which will take all the skill, luck and allies they can muster. Meanwhile, Mattimeo and his comrades in chains must call upon inner resources they barely know they have in order to escape and otherwise frustrate the diabolical schemes of Slagar. Written by

I haven't read the book, but I am still looking out for it. I saw all the episodes on YouTube and I was very impressed, as I am consistently with Nevlana. The animation is clean, the characters are convincing and there is humour thrown into the mix. I loved the fact that the plot evolved over a whole series, very clever. I don't have a favourite episode because I loved it all. I loved the drama and the depiction of violence and adventure that enhances the story like Redwall did. The best character in my opinion is Slagar, voiced magnificently by the ever versatile Tim Curry. In the second episode, although he is a real villain, you feel sorry for Slagar, when you see his disfigurement. Another great character was Basil, he was hilarious, and Baby Rollo is so cute. The other voice talents are entertaining too, along with the endearing subplots. The music is so beautiful, it really takes you back to the medieval times. Overall, I loved it! 10/10. Bethany Cox
