A timeless classic comes alive in this enchanting movie based on the best-selling novel by Richard Adams. Nestled among the rolling hills and peaceful meadows of England lives a community of rabbits. When their warren is threatened, a small group of brave rabbits escapes into the unknown countryside in search of a new home. Led by the visionary Fiver, the courageous Bigwig, the clever Blackberry, and the honourable Hazel, they face daunting challenges, and use their strength and cunning to survive, while pursuing their dreams. Along their trek, they make an unlikely friend – a loony seagull named Kehaar – and battle the vicious General Woundwort, the cruel leader of another warren. Film director, Martin Rosen, frames the tale largely from the viewpoint of the rabbits, so that we identify with each one. Packed with excitement and adventure, Watership Down is an engaging, thrilling tale that celebrates traditional values of loyalty, courage and spirit. Bonus Features: A Conversation with the Film Makers, "Defining the Style" Documentary, Storyboard Comparisons
