Do any of you have watership down dreams?
I keep dreaming about the mini series and more information on it.
A few weeks ago I dremt that Richard Adams was a nature show host talking about when the tide comes in you can't see the giraffes in the water, but when it goes out you will see their necks sticking out of the water. (I have no idea why)

That was funny Cockatiel :D

I have dreams about WD on a regular basis, and I wrote most of them down.  Here is one from mid-March.

"I go to a remote school to try and interview a few people who are working on the new Watership Down miniseries.  My main question is: will it be released in 2017 or in 2018?  I talk with one student, and he seems confused because he's not allowed to provide too many details due to confidentiality agreements.  I ask him a few questions, including the colour of Hyzenthlay's fur (she better not be white!) He then hangs out with a few other students, and none of their answers make sense.  Just as he is about to leave the building, however, he rips off a real rabbit's head."

Ack!

Funnily enough I did have a dream with some WD elements in recently. I think it had things to do with the TV series (not miniseries). Sorry I can't recall anything else about it now.

That is disturbing.    :blackberry3

Unfortunately I have not had dreams of Watership Down, not even furrys things. I only have strange dreams, that I am naked in the class of Egyptian math.

Dream last night, that a wolf killing me.. (Carduus) And the black rabbit doesn't want me to let me to the stars or the rabbit heaven. Kicking me in fire, then.

I awoke, in scream..

Yeah...it wasn't very restful...

Acacia that dream of yours... :pipkin-oh


Anyway here is another dream I had, dating from August 2015:

"I discover that two silent films based on WD have been made, one in 1920 and another in 1921.  There is no information about these films on the Internet apart from their IMDb pages and an abandoned Tumblr blog.  I watch the 1921 version on television.  The characters are played by humans who are not dressed as rabbits.  It begins with Hazel and Fiver (one of them is played by a woman but it isn't clear who).  They go see the Threarah, who is dressed in a military outfit.  He teases Fiver about how (s)he drank a lot of water and shows him/her an empty cup.  Fiver smashes the cup out of the Threarah's hand.  Hazel grabs Bigwig's hand (he happened to be standing nearby), and they run away with Fiver.  The next part is played in super fast forward and they throw a log in the river to get across.  This is where I wake up."

It sounds more like the mystery movie, it seems like we have a mystery in our hands. Although I think it is rather a play.   :blackberry3

I dreamed about the miniseries last night.

The miniseries was suddenly released on Netflix without any prior announcement, and before airing on BBC One.  The opening is similar to that of another BBC series although it is in colour.  The names go by too fast for me to pay attention, but it lists the actors who voice Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig, Woundwort, Clover and Strawberry.  Then it speeds up and shows two names in quick succession, one for Hyzenthlay and I don't know about the other.

It is important to note that the intro is in 2D animation, and that all characters are shown with the same fur patterns as in the 1999 series (except Hyzenthlay who looks like her film counterpart, although that doesn't prevent several Primrose look-alikes from appearing).  However, their bodies are proportioned differently from the 1999 series: their paws are shorter.  Also the textures used on their fur gives the illusion of seeing the individual strands of fur.  It looks terrible.

The first episode starts with a few rabbits on a boat.  Fiver is hysterical, Bigwig shouts at him and Hazel (who has a female voice) tries to calm his brother down.  While at Sandleford Scabious does not appear despite being listed on IMDb.  At the end of the episode, everyone is at Cowslip's warren, Cowslip himself runs away and Strawberry sings.

The second episode starts with Silverweed NOT reciting his poem.  The main characters keep running.  Periodically, the narrator reminds us that Holly and Bluebell are dead, until the very end when he announces that, despite popular belief, they are NOT dead, and they both say something really crazy.  Also we periodically see Buckthorn and his mate Haystack nibbling the grass; Buckthorn remains silent and Haystack only has one or two lines.

Before going to bed, I check the reviews for the miniseries.  The general consensus is that it is good, but it could have been much better.

I really wish I had dreams in Watership Down, like a rabbit. But I always have strange dreams. Whether touring the city without anything else or finding apocalyptic worlds and other nonsense. Sincere dreams would also be great, but living in Watership Down in dreams would be wonderful.
And incidentally annoying my friends Vesper, Leo and Hipster-Roo in their burrows.   :buttercup  :hannah4  :strawberry
I love Watership Down!

I had another dream last night!

The miniseries just released it's trail, I was super excited, but when watching i noticed it was a 2d cartoon "whats going on I thought it was going to be cgi." The cartoon still did have really good animation, and i think how it ended I was going on to this site and tell everyone about the trailer.
