Watership Down Trailer

The BBC are producing a “new adaptation of Watership Down [that] uses Richard Adams’ bestselling novel as its source to bring an innovative interpretation to the much loved classic”.
I’m not sure what that exactly means, but it looks like Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig and the others will be along.
It wouldn’t be the same without Art Garfunkel’s song, I wonder if it will be included or homaged somehow.
Here’s the trailer.

Batman – The Animated Series

I have a copy of the bluray complete Batman – The Animated Series being shipped.
It pretty much makes all other renditions of the character redundant.
Screen Junkies explain why in the Honest Trailer for the series.

Mirai

Saw Mirai, newly released today.

Not the sort of thing that makes it to our home region.

An episodic exploration of a four-year-old adjusting to life as his family welcomes his baby sister, Mirai.
The premise evokes Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, exploring familial relational dynamics across generations.
There are many familiar emotional situations portrayed.
The animation is beautiful.
Not really for small children, though the central protagonist is one.
