The recent rash of Fantastic Mr. Fox images that hit the web signaled the first trailer was imminent. With that trailer, which you can now view below, we finally get to see how director Wes Anderson handled animating his army of critters. If you’re thinking along the lines of Coraline’s cutting edge smooth animation, think “vintage” animation instead.
Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on Roald Dahl’s 1970 children’s book, stars the voice talent of Owen Wilson, George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray.
Mr and Mrs Fox live an idyllic home life with their son Ash and visiting young nephew Kristopherson. But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox’s wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers — Boggis, Bunce and Bean — who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr Fox at any cost.
