Cast of Watership Down Miniseries Announced


Watership Down, a novel by Richard Adams continues to inspire new achievements of entertainment with Netflix and BBC One announcing the tale will be interpreted once more into a 4-part mini-series of animated 60-minute episodes, which will start airing in 2017. The new series will be launched in the U.K. on BBC One and on Netflix outside the U.K.

Directed by Noam Murro and written by Tom Bidwell, Watership Down features James McAvoy (Hazel), Nicholas Hoult (Fiver), Sir Ben Kingsley (General Woundwort), John Boyega (Bigwig), Gemma Artenton (Clover), Miles Jupp (Blackberry), Freddie Fox (Captain Holly), Olivia Colman (Strawberry) and Anne-Marie Duff (Hyzenthlay).

Watership Down is set in the peaceful rural landscape of southern England. A story of courage, adventure and survival, it follows a band of rabbits on their journey from the invasion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Headed by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they go on a trip forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the disturbing trials caused by adversaries and predators to a promised land.
