Since Nickelodeon announced that it was bringing a CG-animated preschool Peter Rabbit series to the small screen in 2013, fans have wondered what they envisioned for the Beatrix Potter series. Well, this trailer for Peter Rabbit’s Christmas Tale gives a look at the network’s take on Peter. In the special, Peter and his cousin Benjamin take over for Mr. Bouncer when he gets sick and can’t make the important holiday supply deliver. They brave a blizzard and the fox Mr. Tod in order to deliver important gifts and supplies to the members of the Lake District. Along the way, Peter and Benjamin meet a new friend, Lily Bobtail. She’s a wholly new character inspired by Beatrix Potter herself: strong, smart, independent, and curious. She’s also nature-lover and artist who is just as willful and playful as her male counterparts
Peter Rabbit’s Christmas Tale premiers on Friday, Dec. 14 at 7p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
