Western Animation / Reynard the Fox

Go To

Reynard the Fox is a 1989 film based on the Reynard the Fox poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, which was in turn based on the Reynard the Fox tales.

Animation is outsourced to Shanghai Animation Film Studio.

The film contains tropes from the source material, as well as the following:

  • Hong Kong Dub: Words usually come out of the characters' mouths with no Mouth Flaps at all, probably due to the animation being outsourced.
  • Redemption Promotion: The animals get scared as Reynard and his family imitate hunters, and they leave the Noble King (who was tied up by Reynad while sleeping) alone. The latter decides to reward Reynard for untying him and making him realize that they are unfaithful to him.
