TV: Watership Down

A trailer has been released for the Netflix/BBC One co-production of Watership Down that "gives off an almost Game of Thrones vibe as it follows the adventure, courage and survival of a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home," Deadline reported.

The animated four-part miniseries, based on the classic book by Richard Adams, features an A-list cast including James McAvoy, Daniel Kaluuya, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Kingsley, John Boyega, Gemma Arterton, Rosamund Pike, Gemma Chan, Peter Capaldi, Taron Egerton, Miles Jupp, Freddie Fox, Mackenzie Crook, Olivia Colman, Anne-Marie Duff, Rory Kinnear, Tom Wilkinson, Jason Watkins, Craig Parkinson, Henry Goodman, Lee Ingleby, Charlotte Spencer and Daniel Rigby.

Watership Down was produced and directed by Noam Murro, co-directed by Alan Short and Seamus Malone, and adapted for the screen by Tom Bidwell (My Mad Fat Diary). It debuts on BBC One from December 22 to 23, and will be released on Netflix December 23.
