Los Angeles-based Fantastic Films International has taken on international sales and distribution rights to A Fox's Tale.

The animated feature from Hungarian director George Gat was co-written with Peter Doka.

Gat's Dyn Entertainment is producing with Bill Chamberlain's Pinewood-based UK outfit Parallel Pictures.
