The Belstone Fox - Preview

The Belstone Fox

Preview by Jack Foley

COMBINING exquisite imagery of both landscape and wildlife – The Belstone Fox is a captivating film for the whole family.

With fine performances from a top-line cast including British theatre stalwart Eric Porter, Jeremy Kemp (The Winds of War, Z-Cars), Dennis Waterman (The Sweeney, New Tricks), Oscar nominee Rachel Roberts (This Sporting Life, Murder on the Orient Express) and Bill Travers (Born Free) The Belstone Fox is not to be missed.

Based on David Rook’s acclaimed novel The Ballad of the Belstone Fox (which went on to inspire Disney’s The Fox and the Hound) it tells the story of Tag, an orphaned fox cub reared with a litter of foxhound puppies who forms a close friendship with a pup named Merlin.

Years pass and Tag’s wily ways keep him safe – but when he is eventually cornered he embarks on a course of action which could end in tragedy…

Written and directed by Born Free‘s James Hill – and with original music from the legendary Laurie Johnson – The Belstone Fox is featured in a new High Definition transfer from the original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio and now makes its way on to Blu-ray for the first time.

It is available on Blu-ray and DVD from August 28, 2017.
