Shout! Factory has a new French import on the way.
The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales is set for release on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on July 16. The animated feature, from GKids, first premiered in France in 2017. It follows a a fox who cares for a family of baby chickens, a rabbit who plays stork and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus.
Co-directed by Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert, the 81-minute feature is an animated adaptation of Renner’s own famed graphic novel that throws back to the golden age of animation, presenting stylistic similarities to classic Looney Tunes shorts. The slapstick presentations overlay deeper messages about family and the challenges of everyday life that will appeal to parents and older children.
A trailer for the feature is streaming online now here.
As an added bonus, Shout! Factory’s upcoming home release of The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales will also feature additional content, such as and interview with Rnner and Imbert, a “making of” featurette and Q&A session at the New York International Children’s Film Festival.
The feature’s upcoming domestic release will also feature English and French tracks. The English-dubbed tracks feature the voices of British celebrities, such as Bill Bailey, Justin Edwards and Matthew Goode.
