Looks like it will for sure be kid appropriate. I hope it won't be extremely childish but I doubt it since it's also a drama.

You know despite that short article being from 2014, why use what looks like promo art from the 90’s series? Though I’d love to see that make a return.

I suppose this is because this was early in pre-production before any concept art for the miniseries was available, and the publication already had this image in their archives.

OOOO if you look at the book on amazon it mentions the miniseries
"soon to be a BBC and Netflix animated miniseries starring James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Oscar and Grammy award-winning Sir Ben Kingsley."

The movie will be released sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, this book catches my attention:

Watership Down: A BookCaps Study Guide

https://www.amazon.com/Watership-Down-BookCaps-Study-Guide/dp/1475270089/ref=pd_sim_14_5?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1475270089&pd_rd_r=AJ9JC01W2QCT2J76R65Y&pd_rd_w=rsLTB&pd_rd_wg=WoBt7&psc=1&refRID=AJ9JC01W2QCT2J76R65Y

It's funny that a book like that comes out, it's like talking with other people more thoroughly about each chapter of the book. And it's cheap. I may buy it, my English is improving a bit.     :primrose      :blackberry3
I love Watership Down!

This seems like an interesting book, although the reviews appear to be mixed.  Still, it's not very expensive, so it might be worth buying it :)

Two months into the second half of 2018. I hope we getting something on this series soon. It would make me go crazy if they have to move the date again.

An actual proper trailer will probably only be released about a month before it airs (if another Netflix show is any indication) but the fact that they haven't released any teasers yet is odd. Not even some character designs or some soundtrack sample or anything.

I hope we get something soon but I think that counts for all of us^^

I really hope there will be no further delays...I'm so tired of waiting...

For a while now, whenever I Google "watership down netflix", I get this:


Why do they still say it was released in 2017?  Why did they mess up Clover's name?  Why are people allowed to rate a show that hasn't been released yet?

At least I would like Netflix to pass the series of Watership Down in my Spanish language, in what comes the movie. That would be the most wonderful thing in the world, in my native language.

But you could manage to watch it in English if that happens to be all that its in for a long time, right?  Given its a "netflix" release, there may not be a Spanish option. There may never even be a physical disc released where you could change language tracks.

Hey, what is this?
This site says that the miniseries will come out 2019. I'm not sure if it's true since I didn't see any official news that that release date has been pushed back till 2019. Let's hope this is the last year of waiting and by December well have our rabbits back.

I really hope it hasn't been delayed again...if it has, they might as well just cancel the whole thing :(

I remember reading somewhere that the BBC premiere would take place around Christmas 2018, with the Netflix premiere occuring a few months later in 2019.  Perhaps that's why 2019 is written here?

I prefer that filming be delayed to what can be done, while doing a good job. Two years ago we are waiting, but it would have been easier to have been a film with traditional animation or Flash media. Ruchar Adams would have wanted it that way, but it's another approach.   :blackberry4
