I heard a while back that filmmaker Wes Anderson (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums) was working on bringing Roald Dahl’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox to the silver screen. I did not realize that the film would employ the almost always awesome technique of stop-motion animation. Considering the director’s previous work, the voice talent (George Clooney, Bill Murray, Meryl Streep, Owen Wilson), and the images below, consider my hopes now high. In theaters November 13.
