Maybe, we will not make a mistake by saying that you see now in front of you an unprecedented – for Ukraine – release. A premium box set consisting of 5 DVD discs – this is for us still, to put it mildly, not a too popular format. Thus, five discs with five almost one-hour series of the new (maybe, it would be better to say – the first?) animation mini-series based on the fairy-tale space created by Ivan Franko. We have already mentioned once that Ivan Franko, in spite of the whole seriousness of his figure, was an extraordinarily apt tale-teller, attentive and merry. And talented fairy-tales, as known, live extremely long – they sound, inspire for creation, induce to reconsideration, experience new implementations. Such new implementation has finally happened to "Mykyta Fox" as well – one of the brightest literary fairy-tales based on Ukrainian folklore. We will not retell the plot – it is known – we will better highlight a couple of other aspects. First, disregarding some assistance on the part of foreign specialists, this is a perfectly Ukrainian product of good quality. Pleasant. Secondly, this is – even though created with the help of computer technologies – drawn animation, colorful, warm, and joyous. Also pleasant – especially, if you are already a bit tired from 3D animation. And the third aspect is music, which sounds all through the series. The basic music accompaniment consists of pieces by Myroslav Skoryk
, and additional sparkles are known, favorite songs performed by Sokoly
, Mad Heads XL
, Pikkardiyska Tertsiya
, Braty Gadyukiny
, Okean Elzy
, Ani Lorak
, Oksana Bilozir
, Taras Petrynenko
, Ivan Popovych
