Watership Down Reboot

Watership Down is a rumored upcoming live-action/CGI reboot of the 1978 traditionally-animated film of the same name. An estimated release date is sometime between 2012-2015. The screenplay, with an all-star cast, is rumored to be in the works and will be completed by the end of 2010. If the screenplay is put into production, it will join the 1978 film & the 1999-2001 TV series of the same name. Possible rumored cast members include Huge Jackman, Clive Owen, Alan Rickman, & Ray Winstone.
Oh, I'm terribly sorry, people! I just found out that all this is false! Well, maybe, just maybe, someday this will become a great film. I hope.

I know, I know, I'm going back and forth on this subject here. But I just found out that they're bringing back the idea & turning it into reality (HOPEFULLY!).

Richard Adams's Watership Down is a 1978 traditionally-animated film that's based on Richard Adams's novel of the same name. It was written, produced, & directed by Martin Rosen (with John Hubley being the 2nd director). It stars the voices of John Hurt (Hazel), Richard Briers (Fiver), Michael Graham Cox (Bigwig), Simon Cadell (Blackberry), Harry Andrews (General Woundwort), & Zero Mostel (Kehaar).This film has been rated PG for depictions of animal violence and gore (MPAA/USA), PG (Canadian English), G (Canadian French). I would give this movie 077% of a star.


All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and when they catch you, they will kill you... but first they must catch you.

A society of rabbits flee their endangered home & set out to start a new one in the "promised land" Fiver talks about. They face peril along the way-hawks, dogs, cats-but finally reach Watership Down. Hazel then says that they need some does, so they go to Efrafa, where an evil group of fellow rabbits are led by General Woundwort. The WD society successfully lead the does to Watership Down, & Woundwort is presumed dead.


Warner Bros' Pictures. October 14, 1978. Adventure-Drama. 101 min./Color. VHS, DVD; 2-D


I think this is a good movie to watch, because it really grips the plot of the book like a pro.


This film is EXTREMELY violent & has a LOT of blood & gore in it, so if you have children under the age of 9 or 10, be ready to cover their eyes during the scary parts, & I mean it!!! Because nowadays, it's rating would be PG-13 (for sequences of animal violence including bloody images and disturbing content).
