“A lively trio of cartoons that are wacky, heartwarming and wise, The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales showcases an animal farm like no other … The result is lots of fun.” – The Hollywood Reporter

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales

France 83 mins


From the Oscar-nominated director of MIFF 2012 hit Ernest & Celestine comes a delightful new animated film for the young and young at heart.

Across three different stories, Benjamin Renner brings to life his own bestselling comic, a funny and charming Dr Seuss-ish collection of misfit animals and their misadventures. The Big Bad Fox of the title isn’t all that big and he’s really not very bad. In fact, he’s quite good – just not at being a fox! In ‘A Baby to Deliver’, good friends Duck, Rabbit and Pig are tasked with an important errand by Stork, but can they deliver? Duck, Rabbit and Pig return in ‘Saving Christmas’, and this time it’s Santa Claus who needs their help … or is it?

Beautifully hand-drawn by animator and co-director Patrick Imbert, The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales makes its English-language Australian debut at MIFF. Featuring a voice cast of venerated British comedians and actors including Adrian Edmondson, Bill Bailey, Rufus Hound and Celia Imrie, this is a heart-warming and laugh-out-loud film for the whole family.

Unclassified: no age restrictions. MIFF recommends this film as suitable for ages 3+
