Ladislas Starevich (also spelled as Vladislav Starevich and Władysław Starewicz, August 8, 1882 - February 26, 1965) was a Russian-Polish-French stop-motion animator who used insect and animal puppets in most of his works. He was also an occasional live-action film director.

Although originally using dead posable insects and humanoid puppets in many his earlier Polish- and Russian-language works (including the 1911 film, The Cameraman's Revenge), he moved toward using normal animal stage puppets in his stop-motion animation following his flight from Russia to France in the wake of the 1917 Russian Revolution. As a result, most of his works from 1920 until his death in 1965 utilize anthropomorphic puppet characters.
