Has anyone watched Watership Down on Netflix? I was pretty excited about seeing it. It's one of my favorite books and I liked the animated version that came out many years ago which, while condensed, followed the plot pretty well and captured the overall spirit of the book. I was looking forward to seeing what they could do in a 4-part series with better animation. Unfortunately, the new version seems to have gotten what I call the "Peter Jackson treatment." Characters being altered and behaving contrary to how they were in the book, love stories where none previously existed, altering key scenes, and adding worthless subplots, all for no good reason. I must say I was quite disappointed. Why can't they just stick to the damn book?
Also, in the older animated version it was easy to tell the rabbits apart. In this one, they all looked very similar so it was sometimes hard to tell who was who.
