The Tale of the Fox
The Tale of the Fox
(French: Le Roman de Renard, German: Reinecke Fuchs) was stop-motion animation pioneer Ladislas Starevich's first fully animated feature film. The film is based on the tales of Renard the Fox. Although the animation was finished in Paris
after an 18-month period (1929-1930), there were major problems with adding a soundtrack to the film. Finally, funding was given for a German soundtrack by the UFA -- Goethe had written a classic version of the Renard legend—and this version had its premiere in Berlin
in April 1937. Released eight months before Disney's Snow White, it is the world's sixth-ever animated feature film (and the second to use puppet animation, following The New Gulliver
The New Gulliver
from the USSR). The film was released in France
with a French language
French language
soundtrack in 1941; this is the version which is currently available on DVD.
