Watership Down is an iconic story that has shaped a whole generation either by reading the book by Richard Adams or being traumatised by the screen version – we picked up the news on the upcoming remake back in October check out our blog story here.
Netflix and the BBC have joined forces to re-create this classic and it is clear they wanted to create as much hype as possible. They have kept the details tightly under wraps with limited details released. Christmas is a time when all of the TV channels are fighting to grab airtime, we are hit with all the best they have to offer but normally we are sitting with the family on Christmas day choosing through a raft of blockbuster re-runs. But this year we had a special treat, on Christmas Day we will be able to view a special feature-length episode of the brand New Production of Watership Down.
This big budget production has a huge all-star cast and looks fantastic, we have been waiting for the first teaser trailer to be released and here you have it. I know what I will be watching this Christmas Day – I can't wait.
