Watership Down is beloved of the British public, and you can see that reflected in two casting announcements with John Boyega and Nicholas Hoult joining the cast of the animated mini-series.

Set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, the adventure tale follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, toward a promised land and a more perfect society.

The show will be broadcast by BBC One in the UK and in the rest of the world through Netflix.
