Location filming took place earlier this month in Ambleside and
Windermere for a new Hollywood movie celebrating one of the
Lake District’s most famous fictional characters.
And movie-goers won’t have to wait long to see the results: The
Tale of Peter Rabbit, a live action and CGI animation adventure
based on the stories of the legendary Beatrix Potter, is expected to
be released in March 2018.
Funnyman James Corden is voicing the lead role of Peter Rabbit
and veteran Australian actor Sam Neill (of Jurassic Park fame) is
also in the line-up of celebrity voices.
