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

The original Redwall animated series distinguished itself as one of Nelvana's finest series with a magnificent adaption of Brian Jacques' first book.
Now this series does Jacques' third book even more justice. If anything, this series depicts more drama, starker perils, and a higher standard of artistic excellence for the company to follow. Correspondingly, the series has more violence which is handled with a care which enhances the story rather than distracting from it.
If you get an opportunity to see this series, don't pass up the chance to see just how good Canadian television cell animation can be!
