A continuation of Wind in the Willows that is perfect in every way
10 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the fantastic Wind in the Willows, The Willows in Winter was a wonderful continuation, with all the charm and likability of its predecessor. The animation was just stunning, and so was the music. The story(which was a great idea) and script were engaging, and the film is made memorable chiefly by its characters. The voice cast was perfectly refreshing, Rik Mayall reprising his role as Toad, and he was hilarious, but Alan Bennett, Michael Gambon and Michael Palin were also brilliant. And lovely narration from Vanessa Redgrave. On the whole, not quite as good as its predecessor, but beautiful and engaging nonetheless. 10/10 Bethany Cox.
