Netflix Is Turning the Redwall Books Into an Animated Movie and Series
quote:

In what might come as a very pleasant surprise to people who were looking forward to Disney’s now-cancelled adaptation of Mouse Guard, Netflix and Penguin Random House are stepping up to the plate to bring a new spin on Brian Jacques’ Redwall series into the world.

Today, Netflix announced that it’s tapped Over the Garden Wall writer Patrick McHale to script a new feature length animated movie about the anthropomorphic, peace-loving prey animals of Redwall and Mossflower who spend their days doing the sorts of things that rabbits, mice, and moles are wont to do when they aren’t being pulled into war.

In addition to a proper Redwall film following the events of Mathias the mouse’s life, Netflix also plans to produce a series chronicling the adventures of Martin the Warrior, one of the few characters to frequently pop up across multiple of Jacques’ books, which all take place across a rather vast timeline that reaches far back before Redwall’s founding.

Did anyone read the Redwall series growing up? It's about damn time they received a proper adaptation!

I remember slogging through Redwall as a kid and being a little bored.

Yep, he even came to my elementary school in Alaska and I have a signed copy. Should be good in Netflix's hands.

Same. Hopefully they do a good job of making them not too kiddy.

The Badgers were badass. But I found the crows/sparrows and the interactions with he birds very fascinating. They shared an environment, but literally a different world. Barely could communicate.

Been a loooong time since I read those.

The mouse? The mouse might be black? The other animals might be animated as animals of color?

Thanks for your input, dipshite

I think Ineed like 10 of those as a kid.

Very interested in this. They have a ton of source material.

The show runner is an interesting choice. I like Adventure time but this will need a different tone.
