The Crown‘s Matthew Goode is part of the English-language voice cast of the French animated comedy The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales
The slapstick farm-set story is co-directed by Benjamin Renner, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his 2012 French animated dramedy, Ernest & Celestine. Patrick Imbert is the other director.
The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales follows three stories: a fox who mothers a family of chicks; a rabbit who plays the stork; and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus.
The comedy harkens back to the style of Looney Tunes shorts, while exploring themes of family and the anxieties of modern life.
The French film premiered in 2017 at the Annecy International Animation Festival. Earlier this year, it won France’s Cesar Award for best animated film and earned three Annie Award nominations, including best independent animated film.
