Set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, the adventure tale follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, toward a promised land and a more perfect society.
Netflix and BBC working together to bring a childhood classic of mine to life...animated life. I remember just 40 years ago, 1978 exactly, when I was first exposed to the novel by Richard Adams by way of the animate movie of the same name. Fiver, Hazel, Clover, Bigwig, Kehaar the seagull, Dandelion and General Woundwart to name a few of my favorite characters are rendered perfectly by the animators... with such skill and caring... you can't help empathizing and loving them. This four part miniseries does the novel proud in representing the themes in Adam's novel well... rhe voice direction is excellent... BRAVO well job done...
