GKIDS and Shout! Factory are teaming up to bring the barnyard hijinx of Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert’s The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales to home video on July 16. Luckily for Animag readers, we’ve got a few copies to give away to the craftiest foxes we can find!
From the creators of the Academy Award-nominated Ernest & Celestine and based on Renner’s own graphic novel, The Big Bad Fox is a hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic. The movie features a host of voices from the world of British comedy, including Bill Bailey, Adrian Edmondson, Justin Edwards, Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie, Phill Jupitus, and Giles New.
A fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus … This triptych of interlocking stories carry viewers along with pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts. But underneath the gags, the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieties of modern life.
The home video release includes an interview with the directors, The Making of The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales, Q&A at the New York International Children’s Film Festival, English Dub featurette and trailer.
