OH BOY! New Watership Down merchandise and it's an adult coloring book!

Here is another cool thing. Noam Murro directed this fox and rabbit commercial. Do you think the WD series will look this good?

I think I'll wait a while to pre-order.  Shipping from the UK to Canada might be more expensive than the books themselves, so I would rather wait and see if any other merchandise that will be released around the same time, so I can order it all at once :vervain2

The CGI effects are very impressive, maybe it's the level of realism in the Watership down movie. Although it may be more of the tone of Petter rabbit 2018.
In any case, it is superb.   :pipkin-oh    :pipkin2

As for the magazines, I'll be glad to buy them, as soon as I have money.
I recently ordered magazines about rats that conquer the world and it fascinates me.        :hannah2
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Oh, d'oh. When I posted in the thread about the colouring book I totally missed the fact you'd already mentioned it here... whoops!

Waterstones are pretty common in the uk - i have one in town and one upstairs at university! If the shipping rates are too expensive from the shop I can always ship if to you and you can pay me for it via paypal, if its cheaper that way!! I've done it before for a mutual friend with some transformers things.

I'll wait for these to come out since its easy for me to just pick them up, the picture book sounds good!
The gal with the goods!

If the coloring book is being released of November 29th do you think the series will  come out somewhere in December or would they release the merchandise after it's been aired?

The Amazon page for the colouring book makes it possible to look inside.  Unfortunately, only a few pages are available, and this is the only new image:


"We began this adventure together, we'll finish it together."

Quote from: The back cover
"There are rabbits who live under the sky.  Rabbits who are free..."

Wander through the idyllic landscapes of Watership Down, in this beautiful colouring book.

Inside you will meet Hazel, Fiver and other favourite characters from the animated story of a rag-tag band of rabbits in search of a new home.

It's a nice picture for Hazel and Fiver I assume.

"There are rabbits who live under the sky.  Rabbits who are free..."
Does anyone remember if this quote was in the book or if it's a new one scripted for the miniseries.

I kind of would like it better if the back said "All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies..."

Cound some nice concept art

If the film turns out to be like Foodfight, at least its art is very good. Now I rely more on online sales services, so I'll have to get my art, as well as Red Wall, the series = P
I already have my rats comic from a popular author that I love  :gilia
I love Watership Down!

I'd be pleased enough if the animation was handdrawn in grey tones like the concept art really. :D

The impression I get from the concepts and colouring book is that the CGI should be pretty decent and the characters kept fairly 'naturalistic'.
