Matthias, a young novice is marking ten years after he was adopted by an abbey named Redwall after his home and family were destroyed by the vicious Rat warlord, Cluny the Scourge. While he has grown to value and respect the peaceful philosophies of the order, he dreams of becoming a great warrior like the order's greatest member, Martin the Warrior. That dream becomes most relevent when the abbey is besieged by Cluny himself. The abbey is determined to resist in what becomes a war of arms, will and wits. Now, Matthias must protect his home with everything he can contribute, while he discovers that a tapestry depicting the history of Martin, is really a prophesy and clues about himself...Written by

Several Redwall characters are named after figures in the Bible:
Matthias: named after the replacement for Judas Iscariot
Methuselah: named after a figure in Genesis credited with being the oldest-living man
Asmodeus: named after the demon of wrath Asmodai
Although not in the Bible, Cluny's name is derived from an abbey in France, chosen by Brian Jacques because it rhymed with "loony" (referring to the character's eventual lapse of insanity). See more »
[trying to get Cheek to give information about the young ones' kidnapping]
Let him go, Basil. *We've just enough time for a late lunch.* Then we'll be on our way. Whta do you say to a vegetable pasty and a drop of cider?
Thanks, but I'd rather down a couple of *bilsberry muffins* and a *nice thick chunk of cheese*.
Basil Stag Hare:
Sliced nut breat and candied chestnuts. Eh, that should do it for me.

Basil Stag Hare:

Heh. Heh. He's funny, he...

I have three teenage sons who grew up loving the Redwall series. When we started watching this DVD we knew we were in trouble when in the opening credits the 'written by' was one person's name and that name wasn't Brian Jacques. The producers have taken the characters and places from Redwall and completely re-written the story. Butchered as badly as Ron Dahl butchered Ian Flemings's Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang? Well, almost. After a half hour of watching this Redwall from the parallel bizarro universe, my 15 year old pressed the stop button on the remote and that was that. It was too painful for us to endure. If you love the original story, get Brian Jacques's excellent audio book version and leave this video on the store shelf.
