Scout Elf Productions™ announces the world premiere of Elf Pets: A Fox Cub’s Christmas Tale (A Fox Cub’s Tale). This heartwarming animated special will be on sale and available for streaming August 25. A Fox Cub’s Tale is a much-anticipated follow-up to last year’s popular Elf Pets: Santa’s St. Bernards Save Christmas – the debut animated special from Scout Elf Productions.
A Fox Cub’s Tale gives an all-new glimpse into the magical world of Santa’s North Pole, and answers the universal question: How does Santa travel the whole world in one night? The special features “Newsey Noel,” the North Pole’s ace Scout Elf reporter, who is invited to ride along with Santa on Christmas Eve to learn first-hand how time pauses so Santa can deliver presents undetected and unheard. The special was adapted from the book, Elf Pets: An Arctic Fox Tradition, which will launch this holiday season and comes with an arctic fox plush.
Scout Elf Productions produced the special and is a subsidiary of Creatively Classic Activities and Books (CCA and B, LLC), home of the internationally beloved Christmas story The Elf on the Shelf. Scout Elf Productions is dedicated to producing entertainment-based content for both large and small screens. CCA and B, LLC Co-CEO and Co-Founder Chanda Bell is also the author of the Elf Pets® series of books.
“What I love most about our animated specials is how they bring the magic of the North Pole to life for children,” said Bell. “At the heart of our animated specials is an enduring narrative with spirited characters and family values that everyone can enjoy together. The animated storytelling which began with the holiday classic An Elf’s Story has evolved over time to encompass all the adventures of Santa’s North Pole. We have several exciting creative projects in the works since there is a whole world to explore and so many tales waiting to be told.”
Bell spearheaded the creative production of A Fox Cubs Tale, along with veteran producer Amy Lovett. As the writer/director/producer of the newest animated tale, Bell weaves a modern-day tale for Santa to reveal to children and families that nothing is more powerful than hope.
Elf Pets: A Fox Cubs Christmas Tale DVD will be available for purchase at retailers nationwide, and on shop.elfontheshelf.com website, for $9.95. The disc includes the 28-minute animated special, as well as the trailer, sing-along version and filmmaker’s commentary.
The beloved holiday classic An Elf’s Story, along with Elf Pets: Santa’s St. Bernards Save Christmas, have aired on the Turner networks throughout the holiday season. Airing information for all three specials and times will be released closer to the 2019 holiday season.
