Must Watch: Behind the Scenes Fantastic Mr. Fox Featurette
When the first trailer for Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox was released in July, I was, to be honest, underwhelmed. The voice-work, while superbly acted, just didn't seem to mesh with what I was seeing. The stop-motion animation felt antiquated and (in a world where Henry Selick reigns supreme) subpar. But with a story adapted from Roald Dahl's classic children's book, I'm willing to give this little film the benefit of the doubt. And it's great behind-the-scenes featurettes like this one that have me second-guessing my initial reaction. There's a certain charm at work. Regardless, this is a must-watch. Well played, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
