‘Peter Rabbit’ Is Dropping On Netflix So That’s Our Weekend Sorted

Peter Rabbit is officially dropping on Netflix this weekend - and it's the ideal feel-good film to binge watch on a lazy Sunday.

Loading…

The CGI and live-action movie, which hit cinemas in 2018, focuses around the mischievous adventures of Beatrix Potter's Peter (voiced by James Corden), as he vies for the attention of animal lover Bea (Rose Byrne) and battles against nemesis Mr McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) for her time.

That's not the only fight Peter has on his hands, as he also faces a new enemy in his ongoing battle for the veggies in Mr McGregor's garden...

The film not only stars Corden, Gleeson and Byrne, but also boasts big names Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley as the voices of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.

The movie grossed a whopping $351 million (£297 million) worldwide when it opened, which shows just how popular the little cartoon bunny really is.

And the reviews speak for themselves, with The Telegraph branding it a "charming screwball comedy" while Empire praised the "splendid" animation and Gleeson's performance.

What more could you want in a weekend watch?!

The drop comes as fans eagerly await the drop of Peter Rabbit's sequel, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway.

Without giving too much away, the film picks up where the first lets off, and sees Peter continue to grapple for Bea's attention, before eventually throwing a strop and (you guessed it) running away from home.

The official description reads: "Bea, Thomas, and the rabbits have created a makeshift family, but despite his best efforts, Peter can't seem to shake his mischievous reputation.

"Adventuring out of the garden, Peter finds himself in a world where his mischief is appreciated, but when his family risks everything to come looking for him, Peter must figure out what kind of bunny he wants to be."

The new movie is landing in cinemas on March 27th, just in time for Easter.

Perfect timing for a refresher of the first one, then!
