Wes Anderson just seems like he’s a good fit for stop-motion animation. His classically indie sensibilities just seem like he’s the type to go in that direction. And based on the first trailer for The Fantastic Mr. Fox, it looks like it could really work out for him.
Based on the children’s novel by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach), this flick features a stellar voice cast headed by George Clooney and Meryl Streep, as well as Wes Anderson regulars like Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and Owen Wilson.
It’s a very fun, funny, and creatively whacky little trailer for a film that looks like it’s sure to deliver just those kinds of goods. Check it out below!
