    Watership Down is one of my favorite books, and this adaptation does fine service to Richard Adams' work. Animators were at the top of their mid-to-late-1970s game. The voice talent is a who's-who of British theatre and film. The script is faithful to the book, with the expected compressions required for adapting a book to screen. Most gratifying is what is not sacrificed, the fables of El-ahrairah that add such depth to the canon, and elevate it from a talking animal story to that of heroic saga. Like the book, the film should not be underestimated. Very young children will either be bored to death or traumatized. A remake has been announced for 2017, and creators should not be dismissive of their predecessor when it comes to faithfulness to Adams' vision he so lovingly put on paper.
