Watership Down

4

The rabbits of childhood

Next to Bambi, this often harrowing adap of Richard Adams’ novel must surely hold a record for most children traumatised.

Exercise caution then before introducing yours to this doom-laden tale, which follows a colony of rabbits seeking a new home after the destruction of their warren.

The animation hasn’t aged well, while the script rings false in places, yet the narrative’s cumulative power still casts a spell and bunny tyrant General Woundwort (Harry Andrews) remains a uniquely chilling villain.
