That’s it. No more story here.
VIVE LE FRANCE!
As a follow-up to our earlier post about the French dub of Fantastic Mr. Fox, below is the trailer for the film. Nearly identical, the only changes apparent to me are a music cue in the middle and the fact that they only list two names for the dub. It’s funny that they seemed to have done some dubbing especially for the trailer as Amalric still says the “Shall we dance?” line, a recurring thing that Wes ended up cutting from the movie entirely after test screenings. After the jump is the poster (identical to the UK version) that curiously lists George Clooney’s name.
Allocine has announced two of the actors who will be voicing Fantastic Mr. Fox in la version française, and they’re on par with their American counterparts. Mathieu Amalric (Quantam of Solace, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Arnuad Desplechin‘s A Chrismas Tale) will be providing the dub for Mr. Fox, and Isballe Huppert (8 Women, The Piano Teacher, I Heart Huckabees) will be voicing Mrs. Fox. If I read correctly, the film comes out in February in France. No other cast for the dub has been announced, but as The Playlist speculates, Wes is likely involved in this version of the film and its casting. If more interesting names pop up we’ll be sure to let you know.
