Greetings, and welcome to my Watership Down website! This site
will introduce you to the world of Watership Down as invented by British author Richard Adams. It is based
mostly on the Nepenthe animated movie that is one of my all time favorites more than two decades after I first
For those who don't know, Watership Down is the story of an intrepid group of rabbits
who abandon their home when one of their numbers has a chilling vision of its destruction. They brave many
dangers on the voyage to their new home in the hills of Watership Down, a place that
actually does exist ! Once there, however, the brave bunnies discover their greatest challenge is yet to come:
They must survive the onslaught of a neighboring gulag style rabbit colony led by the dreaded dictator General
Woundwort... Who wants them all dead!
Although meant to be a children's fable, Watership Down is a well executed and surprisingly
mature movie with spiritual overtones and sometimes graphic violence. I saw the movie when I was nine and came
away enriched and unscathed, so I'm guessing (hard to say in this bizarro day and age) that kids can watch it
safely. It's a timeless adventure that's well worth adding to your movie collection, and it has even spawned a
tamer, made for tv kiddie cartoon series.
I hope you enjoy your visit everybunny... Cheers!
