The Fantastic Mr. Fox is one of the movies we will be profiling later this year closer to it’s release in theaters, currently scheduled for arrival on the big screen on November 13th. We gave you an initial look at some of the characters in the movie and have already posted the first trailer for the film, which features old-school stop motion animation to get the results that Anderson wanted to achieve. In a lot of ways, what we have seen so far, truly fits Anderson’s style of directing. The visual style he has used in such films as Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums in the past actually remains prevalent from the footage we have been able to catch thus far. The film will feature voice work from George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Bill Murray among others.
This featurette video for Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on the children’s classic book of the same name, takes you behind the scenes revealing some of the highly detailed processes that it took to create what we will see on the big screen. This gives the viewer a greater appreciation of the amount of work that is involved in the use of stop motion animation technique for filmmaking. The video is voiced by one of the stars, Jason Schwartzman and features George Clooney, the director Anderson, and many crew members involved in the process. Take a look and tell us what you think. Props to First Showing for the video.
