CBeebies is bringing Beatrix Potter’s timeless character Peter Rabbit to life in a brand-new series of adventures based on the well-loved children’s books.
Set in Potter's beloved English Lake District, Peter’s world is the real natural world — majestic and beautiful – where behind every tree and rock there is a surprise to discover and where dangers (be it a sneaky fox or a bad-tempered badger) lurk around every corner.
This new animation stays true to the feel of the original books while ensuring the storylines are just as engaging and relevant for modern audiences. The team took over 3,000 photos of the Lake District to ensure every frame is faithful to the landscape in which the animation has been set – so Peter's burrow is based on the roots of a real tree near Sawrey and all the flowers and plants are native to the Lake District.
Peter Rabbit is a character that children will be able to relate to, in a story where friendship is paramount. Children will enjoy accompanying Peter and his friends on their adventures, which are full of fun, mischief and suspense. These new adventures will introduce a whole new generation to the magical world of Beatrix Potter.
