Quaid here with our first(ish) look at a couple of stills from Wes Anderson’s first foray into animation, an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s “The Fantastic Mr. Fox.”
One of these stills hit last week, but the other is brand new. The stop-motion movie stars George Clooney in the title role as well as the truly incomparable Meryl Streep as his Foxy wife. To prove it’s a Wes Anderson movie, the film will also showcase the voice talents of Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman.
I’m highly excited for this. I feel like Anderson’s ultra-indie style is getting a bit stale, so it’s nice to see him aiming his considerable talents at a new medium and a new genre. Hopefully the man can maintain what made us all fall in love with Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums while still keeping his films fresh and relevant.
