Great New Photos from Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox
Our friends over at USA Today scored a gaggle of new photos for Wes Anderson's upcoming stop-motion animated film Fantastic Mr. Fox. We previously featured some photos last week, however these give us a better look at the behind-the-scenes of it. All you need to know about the film can be found here, though the release date is now set for November 13th of this year. Among the photos are a few immersive stills of the characters (emoting quite impressively, I must say) and shots with Anderson himself arranging them to do his bidding in this expanded version of Roald Dahl's classic story. Definitely worth checking these out!
Of the story, they say the film will include Wes Anderson trademarks such as a dysfunctional family and a male rivalry. Also, the four Fox children have been combined into just one misfit of a pup voiced by Jason Schwartzman. Of Fantastic Mr. Fox, Schwartzman says it's "the ultimate." "It's funny, but also visually beautiful. Instead of adapting his style of directing to animation, [Anderson] brought animation to him. He made a Wes film." This doesn't surprise me, as Anderson seems to be rehashing the same themes in all of his films, all with varying degrees of success. Though I am excited to see how he tells this story his way.

This just keeps on looking better. Trailer please, though. I'm excited to see an animated film with Wes' sensibilities.

"rehashing the same themes" you mean singularity of vision

@#2 I think thats the adjective they're going for...

Character design-wise, for the most part, it just......doesn't look appealing.
