If you want an example of semi realistic cgi rabbits made by this company, take a look at the Peter Rabbit series they've made. I think the rabbits looks pretty good in that series. I hope this miniseries follows a similar style.
I do think it might look a bit like that, but I am hoping a bit better since this is a shorte series and they won't be continusly making episodes after that.

Jaeson Finn tweeted another image:


I cropped the image, here's the original with an annoying product placement

Unfortunately, based on the text of the tweet, it's probably the last one.

I have a feeling this may be Silverweed reciting his poem.

More alcohol product placement? What is this?  :sarcasm

This is a rather irritating product placement. Still, the picture of series looks good. :)

Yeah, it definitely would fit in the Silverweed scene. Oh boy, I'm so looking forward for the release! ^_^

This is taking so long that I hope this movie is not canceled. I do not know friends, for some reason I have that ugly feeling. I hope I'm wrong 100% and the movie is ready 2018   :bigwig3
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Now I'm more scared..  :woundwort
I just have bad history with modern 3D movies. Usually they look plastic and not so fluffy and cuddly as the original. :hawkbit3

With today's technology, I think the cartoon will be fine.

And no worries, [CALL]Varjokani[/CALL], but we're glad to see you here :)

I think the problem I have with 3D movies at the moment stems from the fact that 90% of the ones I see come from Disney or Pixar. That in itself isn't a problem, but they both have very similar and consistent art styles to their animation. At their core, they all "look" the same. To me, anyway. It's a good style, yes, so I understand why they wouldn't deviate from it much, but it would be nice to have something different. I really hope this series looks good (if only we could get a dang screenshot!).

While we're on the topic of animation quality, I'm still a little salty that Animal Logic isn't producing the project like it was rumored a couple years back. After seeing what they can do with the animation on films like Legend of the Guardians and Walking With Dinosaurs 3D, I'd have jumped at a chance to see them remake Watership Down. Those guys got talent in organic, expressive animated creatures. But alas, not happening anytime soon. Still, I'll be perfectly content if this mini-series looks even a third as good as this:



'course, good animation won't help it much if they completely mess up the story and character, but it helps.

I found three new images from the miniseries, all from concept artist Nikolai Lockertsen.  These images have been on the Internet for a while, but I only discovered them a few days ago.

In the words of the artist, "As far as I know, [the producers] went for a much more realistic look. Like real hares almost. I dont think [the rabbits] will wear clothes. I just did these as early characterdesign and concepts, but the project has shifted hands since then."

Graveyard


I assume this is Newtown Churchyard, where the rat fight took place in the film.

First picture: LOOKS AMAZING
Second: what animorphic
Third: wait i'v seen this picture before.
