The first trailer has arrived for Netflix and BBC’s CGI version of Richard Adams’ classic 1972 Watership Down.
As those of you who have read the book (or seen director Martin Rosen’s gory 1978 animated version) will know, Watership Down follows a group of rabbits as they venture from their destroyed home to an idealised paradise.
“Adapted for the screen by Tom Bidwell and directed by Noam Murro, this tale of adventure, courage and survival follows a band of rabbits as they flee the certain destruction of their home,” says the synopsis.
Stars in this version include Daniel Kaluuya, Ben Kingsley, James McAvoy and John Boyega and release is set for 22 December on both Netflix and BBC.
Check out the trailer above.
