Watership Down is always characterized by a frame would be realistic, that's why I love it so much. And very well done by the acclaimed Richard Adams.

Exactly. And there have always been more to Watership Down story than just rabbits trying to steal gardeners vegetables. So much more.

It definitely has. The fact is, that we have a war of two warrens - at least in the series. The real war was really short. It started in episode 2.12 and ended in 3.01. Then, it was inflamed in the last episode of the series.

At least, I would see it so.

Can I just say that the Peter Rabbit Clip you put in is an awful voicing (not being offensive to Nickelodeon or America :lol ) of Peter Rabbit. Here's a great (reasonably good) Cbeebies Trailer (Yes, for little kids...): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhNouYmYB04

But....

Peter Rabbit was a collection of very short stories for toddlers...

So I think that they'll upgrade it for WSD, especially as Peter Rabbit was a very-low budget 15 minute slot toddler TV show.

Here's hoping they'll put a lot of effort into this... and that's it's not made in a cruddy, cheapy looking CGI style.

Or if it is made in CGI style, let's hope it will be good enough to encourage people new to WSD franchise to get to know other products.

Well, I said it before. CGI has reached a level, where it's possible to create and animate realistic looking and acting animals.

So this could really work.

There's news on this. At least, I take it it's for the same thing. Possibly the article has already been linked on another thread! If it's the same, it will be CGI.

Who is that Thumper rabbit they're talking about? I don't remember any rabbit with that name in Watership Down.

Ah yes, that's the link!

It annoys me that they say something like 'now we can do cool detailed stuff like add fur that moves' as if the animation simply has to have all the details. The original film had 'simple' drawings that were definitely recognisable as rabbits and it all worked fine. It's art. The idea that 'look how much more amazing this film will be to be re-done because we can do all these amazing details and techniques with CGI' attitude does irk me.

And that's not me saying it will be a bad film or series - it could be nicely done.

I think it might be too much to wish they used this kind of CGI:

Heh. :D

Maybe the author of article got wrong information. Or maybe producers of tvseries/movie are going to add their own character with name designed to evoke feeling of nostalgia among people, who watched Bambi.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a more realistic and would subject. I am almost sure to be childish to sell more Tikets in film and is more popular among children. Something silly, stupid and childish.
AND THIS IS MY GREAT TERROR WITH YOU Watership Down!

Well as some of you may remember, this isn't the first time that Watership Down  names have been messed up.

Remember this?
