Description

Based on the beloved bestseller by Richard Adams, this stunning animated series reunites composer Mike Batt ("Bright Eyes") and the voice talents of John Hurt and Richard Briers from the classic 1978 feature film. It follows the hearwarming and "hare-raising" adventures of a small band of renegade rabbits, who leave their endangered dwelling to make their way across the English countryside, in search of a safe new home. Hazel fears for the future of the warren - they need more dows and seek to recruit from Efrafa, a warren under the strict regime of General Woundwort (John Hurt). It seems some of the rabbits at Efrafa have tried to escape and have been severely punished. In order to help these rabbits, in particular a striking dow called Primrose, Hazel and his brother Fiver have to brave the wrath of Woundwort, which may cost them their lives.
