The New Watership Down Series

The Nerdist is reporting that both the BBC and Netflix are producing a CGI series based upon Watership Down.

Although I am happy that a series is being made, my main concern that this series will be toned down for children. It is the life and death issues that drove the original 1978 classic.

I actually saw this film as a child and it made me realize even to the squirrels and rabbits we might see on any given day in our own neighborhoods. They face life and death every single day, but what do humans know.
