    The music for this is so intense it really brings this trailer to life. Also it’s a great story I just finished reading it and I hope this does it justice

    Honestly I really love this and it's well done in my opinion. This has been my 16th time watching this and everytime I was it I learn more about the story. I feel like they did an amazing job with the characters and all the landscapes. The only problem was the movement with Kehaar the bird like flying and walking. Well done!

    There has been a lot of negativity about this. And yes the animation is EXTREMELY confusing. But the story, the acting/voices, the visuals. I really LOVED watching this. Binchwatched the hell out of it xD

  • Limmeh

    The 1978 version was much more haunting, dark and violent. You'd literally see rabbits ripping the flesh off each-other, and gushing blood. I liked this adaptation, but it annoys me that they didn't have any gore. That's what made the combat scenes so intense,and what made Woundwort fearsome. Still, a nice blast to the past I guess.

    • Rares Sava
      Rares Sava 11 days ago

      The director said why he removed the violence in this adaptation and he have a really good point. Even if the 78' movie is a masterpiece, the people who just remember seen the original once when they were children, they remember just the fact that it was violent, but nothing about the amazing story and the nice characters. And, these days, Watership Down apear just in violent topics like Top 10 violent movies for kids. But Watership Down supoust to be hartbreaking and emotional and the violence overshadow the brilliant work. Many make the argument that the book is also violent, but there is a difference between reading a scene that's violent and watching it. I think it's better for Watership Down adaptations to suggest the violence instead of showing it for the sake of been more acurate with the tone that the book have.

    idc about the 3D but it's quality looks like a student animation project... The original will always exist though.

  • ChronicCrow
    ChronicCrow 18 days ago

    As someone who loves the book and the old movie, this was pretty good. I was worried it wouldn't be as faithful but for a show it's fairly accurate to the book. The animation is a bit odd but the voice acting (except Hawkbit's) really had me invested in a story I pretty much already knew.

  • Mr. Bee
    Mr. Bee 18 days ago

    I just watched first part 'The Journey' and it's fantastic! Actually thanks to the 'retro' animation the story can be followed better and is more flashed out, you don't focus on flashy animation. Music, voice acting, atmosphere, it's all thrilling and exciting!

    Netflix. If u wanna make this better, make a “Tales from Watership Down” miniseries.

  • The Ethicist Philosophy Show

    This had better be rated R; at least PG-13. And if you're going to keep it as PG looking as this trailer does please don't put in deeply graphic content.

  • 李元顥
    李元顥 Month ago

    For those who don't even bother giving this a chance, I partially agree with your opinions on the not-so-satisfying CGI.
    *However*, the voice acting was so incredible that after watching it for a few minutes, I got so immersed and found myself completely ignoring the bad animation.
    That, along with some viscerally exciting and emotionally beautiful scenes, are the reasons I would recommend this to anyone.

    They did a great job with the mini-series! My favorite part? When Bigwig tells Wondwort that he won't move until his chief rabbit tells him to.

  • 1faithchick7

    For anyone ready to hate on this before seeing it... I was going to be one of those people and I AM SO GLAD I GAVE IT A CHANCE!!! Honestly one of the best adventure series I've seen in a long time. It is brutal, not as brutal as the cartoon, but still very, very brutal. Anyone who does not cry or get emotional has no soul after watching this. And honestly, it looks so much better watching it on tv compared to the commercial. Not sure why.

    I recently watched the series, and to my surprise it was actually very well out together! The animation not only is beautiful, but they captured the essence of the book into this movie - minus the violence. I'd give this a 7/10, because of other things such as character designs and whatnot.

    If you can't bear anything that isn't ultra-perfect animation you won't like this. If you're prepared to take a little rough with the smooth on the CGI front, and instead concentrate on the characters and the actual story, you might like it. It does have a lot of changes from the novel, but overall I'm glad to have seen it. 7/10 perhaps.

    Everyone here talking like they are some professional animators just watch the damn movie ya twats. If graphics all that matters then go watch the emoji movie. When you watch animation movie you watch it for these reasons. Story, characters, entertainment, visual graphics. Also talking about graphics they made it look like this on purpose it’s called director’s choice. My ratings for this movie is 8/10.

    • Loganberrybunny
      Loganberrybunny 2 months ago +1

      The TV show was (mostly) the most kid-friendly version of WD there's been and was fairly light-hearted a lot of the time. If you watch this new one, expect it to be darker, both graphically in in terms of some of its themes, though it's not as gory as the 1978 film.


    *I have the original on DVD and love it. But this looks like a really good re-make.* 👍

    What good are realistic CGI textures on rabbits that don’t look or move like rabbits, or on backgrounds that aren’t affected by what happens in them? Do yourself a favor and watch the 1978 film, which captured more realism using traditional animation. Did a better job with the symbolic segments like Fiver’s visions, too.

      I agree! And it's not as if the BBC went out and destroyed all copies of the novel or the old cartoon for god's sake - you can still enjoy the story in its original form and 40 year old re-telling.

      While I wouldn't say it's the best adaptation of the story (I'm a diehard fan of the original novel, so there is no best adaptation to me) I still don't fully understand the excessive hate. Despite seeing a few hiccups in the storytelling and the animation being rather stilted, I enjoyed it for the dramatic ride it was. I'll be finishing my review of it later tonight and I actually recommend it. I just found it a fun experience, if nothing else. It's obvious to me that the director read the book and was at least trying.

    I actually really loved it, yeah the animation isn't nearly up to par with what we're used to, but the story and characters were very well depicted and I loved the voice cast. In my opinion the lack of great graphics allowed you to know the characters by their voices and let the voice actors shine.
