A major British voice cast has been announced for the upcoming The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales, which is all set to hit Uk cinemas in the middle of summer holidays this August.

Bill Bailey, Adrian Edmondson, Justin Edwards, Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie, Phill Jupitus and Giles New have all lined up to play the characters of the forthcoming family film.

From the creators of the Academy Award-nominated Ernest and Celestone, comes The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales, a hilarious adventure about a gang of animal misfits.

Told through beautiful hand-drawn animation, the story unfolds around these lovable countryside creatures as they try (and fail), to fulfil 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.

It will arrive in UK cinemas from August 3rd.
