Peter and his family take over Old Mr. McGregor’s property, throwing an endless party of fruits, vegetables and bad behavior. When a younger, more fastidious McGregor arrives to claim his inheritance, Peter is determined to keep the party going.
But the young McGregor is not only a formidable foe, but is also falling for the local painter (and the rabbits’ surrogate mother), Bea. Now, Peter will stop at nothing to drive McGregor away as the two wage war over both the garden and Bea’s affection.
Their rivalry will take them from the idyllic Lake District to the busy London Underground to the toy-filled aisles of Harrods and back again. But in the end, Peter must come to realize that carrots and glory are never as gratifying as love and family.
