John Boyega, James McAvoy & Nicholas Hoult coming to your TV screen in Watership Down


TV, you’ve done it again! The BBC and Netflix are joining forces to bring an A-list adaptation of the classic British novel Watership Down to your television screen. Planned as a four-part animated miniseries the show will premiere on BBC One in the UK and internationally on Netflix.

The A-list talent includes Star Wars: The Force Awakens John Boyega, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Kingsley and Gemma Arterton.

There seems less and less distinction between the kind of quality you find in a movie theater and your home screen. Soon a movie theater, a home viewing screen, an iPad, all will be seen as just another device.

Here’s the low down on the book written by Richard Adams in 1972. Don’t let the word ‘animation’ throw you. Watership Down is beloved by adults and children alike.

“Set in England's Downs, a once idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of adventure, courage, and survival follows a band of very special creatures—rabbits—on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.
 Obviously, the actors are sharing their vocals talents but depending on the ambition of the animation—think Jungle Book—this could be an amazing television adventure.
