First image of the miniseries

This image was tweeted by Jaeson Finn, one of the storyboard artists for the miniseries.

Here is a link to the original tweet: https://twitter.com/JaesonX/status/763009224179875840

On another note, John Boyega, who voices Bigwig, has finished recording.

I admit I was excited when I saw the topic title but then very disappointed by the image since it doesn't really tell us much. What is it? The barn? Still in development stages. No wonder it's slated for Christmas 2017...

Looks interesting, tho, still in early development, seeing all these rough models of course.
What surprised me a little more is the fact, I didn't even know, John Boyega will lend Bigwig his voice.
Oh, I so hope, this will be translated in german. What a funny, slight Star Wars feeling it might awake, heh. x3

Thanks a lot for  sharing! Guess it's a real hard work, finding all these crumbs in the whole internet.

Holly crap! This got me excited even though it's an unfinished model it shows that they started working on animation sets. I'm guessing it's nuthanger farm

It takes time to create a new adaptation that has touched the hearts of the world, all we can do is be patient.

I'll have to admit that i find this image slightly disappointing too, since you don't get to see any of the rabbits. But it's better than nothing.  At least things are happening.

I hope the animation will look better in the final version.  Currently it reminds me of this 90s computer demo. (starts around 4 minutes)

I assume it's Nuthanger Farm, even though it looks nothing like in the film or the series.  But it can't really be anything else...

Leo-rah, you can find the whole (English) cast list here on IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5670764/

The German version (if it happens) will probably have a completely different cast.

It looks cruddy at the moment, but give it a chance! It is still at the very basic stages. :D

Well, it seems that the film will not premiere this year as had been done the rumor. It may be up to 2017, I hope worthwhile.

Minimum, the quality of petter rabbit ..

That's gotta be Nuthanger farm. The terrain looks pretty good, but this is definitely early! I hope it will look very detailed when finished.

Jaeson Finn has tweeted another image. This time, he seems to be working on character models (a rabbit and a cat).

That wine looks nice... :p

It looks interesting. At the moment, it looks quite realistic.

This looks indeed like a wild rabbit, according to the brownish fur of it, as far as I can see.
So excited about to see something new! Thanks for sharing!
