About

BBC One and Netflix have announced the classic tale will be reinterpreted into a four-part animated mini-series set to air in 2018. The series will premiere on BBC One in the UK; and worldwide, outside of the UK, on Netflix.   

Set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, this tale of adventure, courage, and survival follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home.
