An array of British talent has been announced to voice the animated family adventure The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales alongside the official posters and number of cast images.
The cast includes the voices of Bill Bailey as Duck, Adrian Edmondson as Rabbit, Matthew Goode as Wolf, Celia Imrie as Chicken, Justin Edwards as Pig, and Giles New as Fox. Academy Award-nominated Ernest and Celestine are the creators behind the adventure about a gang of animal misfits which is directed by Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert.
The film doesn’t feature the animation we have come to expect from the likes of Pixar and the like but instead goes back to basics with the story being told through beautiful hand-drawn animation.

The story unfolds around these lovable countryside creatures as they try (and fail), to fulfill their traditional roles in the farm and the forest.
A lazy stork leaves the delivery of a baby in the care of a rabbit, a pig and a duck. A big, bad fox tries to live up to his reputation whilst he unwittingly adopts three confused baby chicks and in the film’s final tale, the animals embark on a hair-brained scheme to replace Father Christmas.
