Marvel may have the Avengers but Netflix and BBC One are staging their own epic team up. The media giants have assembled every British actor ever for an adaptation of Richard Adams' critically-acclaimed fantasy novel Watership Down and we have our first look at what's in store for the animated adventure.
In the stellar official trailer for the upcoming mini-series, imminent danger forces a group of rabbits to flee their home in search of a new place to call home. Brothers Hazel and Fivel lead the treacherous journey which comes with its own set of obstacles including predators and other unforeseen dangers.
An all-star cast voices the project including John Boyega, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Olivia Colman, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton, Daniel Kaluuya, Rosamund Pike, Gemma Chan, Peter Capaldi and Taron Egerton.
Tom Bidwell penned the screenplay and 300: Rise Of An Empire's Noam Murro served as the director. Watership Down heads to Netflix on Sunday, Dec. 23. It will also air on BBC One Saturday, Dec. 22 and Sunday, Dec. 23.
