First Spike Jonze took on a children’s literary classic with “Where the Wild Things Are,” and this Thanksgiving Wes Anderson follows suit with “Fantastic Mr. Fox.”
Based on the novel by Roald Dahl, this stop-motion animation film tells the story of crafty Mr. Fox (George Clooney), who steals meals from crooked farmers to provide for his family. But when the fed-up farmers try to kill Mr. Fox, he bands together with his family and friends to get the animal community to safety.
“Fantastic Mr. Fox” — which also features the voice talent of Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Brian Cox and Michael Gambon — is scheduled to be released Nov. 25.
