Brian Jaques' beloved 'Redwall' series is getting a Netlflix film and animated series

The beloved Redwall series by Brian Jacques is being adapted into both a film and an animated series by the streaming giant Netflix.

Patrick McHale, creator of Over The Garden Wall, is writing the feature film, which will draw from the titular first book in the series. The animated series will draw from the second book in the series, Martin the Warrior

It's the first time a feature film will be made from Jacques' books, and the second time a series has been made - a television series based on the first three books ran from 1999 until 2002.

Jacques' Redwall series follows the adventures of anthropomorphic animals - including mice, moles, hares and badgers - living in Redwall Abbey and the surrounding Mossflower Woods. Throughout the series the normall peaceful inhabitants of the woods must defend themseles from bands of vermin, including rats, weasles and foxes.

Details on who is directing or starring in the film and series have yet to be announced.
