Calling All Redwall Fans

We're sitting here watching something we ran across tonight at Barnes and Noble...an animated movie of Redwall - The Siege

My boys are major fans of the Redwall series of books by Brian Jacques, so when we came across this they talked me into it. I don't usually do impulse buys on DVDs, so I'll let you know if it was worth the price. For those unfamiliar with the Redwall books, check them out. Although a tad violent in parts, the stories are very entertaining and filled with morals and values. We particularly enjoyed listening to the CD of the first book, Redwall, as a family last summer. We haven't been able to get the CDs for Mossflower yet from the library, but have them on our wish list. I'll let you know what we think of the movie...

Please do let us know how the movie is. Although my son is eighteen, he read the whole series last summer. He only enjoys fantasy/adventure stories, and Redwall fills the bill.

Cami,
We're going to do a complete review on it, so stay tuned! They were a bit critical at first, but by the end they really enjoyed it. The only downfalls...it wasn't long enough and it left you hanging at the end of the first section of the Redwall book. Will post more early next week I think...L
