THE WORLD OF PETER RABBIT AND FRIENDS - a magical place inhabited by disobedient bunnies, rambunctious kittens & practical hedgehogs - comes beautifully to life in this lovely British animated series based on the classic tales by Beatrix Potter.
The animation, which has been crafted to look like Miss Potter's original drawings, is first rate. Care has been given to find the perfect voice cast and several of Britain's finest actors (Sir Ian Holm, Sir Derek Jacobi, Hugh Laurie, Patricia Routledge, Prunella Scales, etc.) lend their considerable talents to the enterprise.
The animation is charmingly framed with live action sequences featuring Niamh Cusack as Miss Potter, filmed in the English Lake District at the author's beloved Hill Top Farm and the village of Near Sawrey.
