Take a look at these photos from Wes Anderson‘s first animated film The Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on a Roald Dahl book.
Mr. Fox (George Clooney) and Mrs. Fox (Meryl Streep) live an idyllic home life with their son Ash (Jason Schwartzman) and visiting young nephew Kristopherson (Eric Anderson). But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr. Fox’s wild animal instincts and he soon slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief, landing him and his family in a lot of trouble.
The movie also features the voices of Bill Murray, Wally Wolodarsky, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Jarvis Cocker and Helen McCrory. It is produced by Wes Anderson, Scott Rudin and Allison Abbate.
Anderson is best known as director of “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” and “The Darjeeling Limited.”
Before going wide in the U.S, November 13th, 2009, The Fantastic Mr. Fox will first pay a visit to the 53rd Times BFI London Film Festival (14 – 29 October 2009) for its first showing.
