Watership Down Series Trailer
While the “humans as antagonists” thing has been done for ages, at least this series does not dwell on it. Humanity is not the rabbits’ only enemy, and the trailer never shows humans. It just shows human tools and buildings. Otherwise, the rabbits just fight other animals. That does give me hope that this series will not fall in to the usually traps. Otherwise, the story is promising. If I had Netflix, I might check it out.
Either way, if you do have do have Netflix, I recommend giving Watership Down a chance. You can then come back her to post your review in the comments below before reading the other news on this website.
