First Look: Fantastic Mr. Fox

JoBlo has gotten ahold of the first image from Wes Anderson's stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox. I'll admit, it's not quite what I expected to see, but then again, I shouldn't be surprised. This style seems to hark back to odd 1970's British children's television (which was, i should mention, before i was born and foreign at that, but which i have encountered on youtube enough to clearly be a genius about) like Bagpuss or that Tufty the Squirrel creature, except for probably infinitely more complicated.

The film will feature the vocal talents of pretty much everyone. George Clooney is playing the title role, and backing him up are Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody, Michael Gambon, Jarvis Cocker, and Anjelica Huston. I can't wait for a trailer to surface, so we can see these characters in action.

Let's throw Tufty the Squirrel on here. Such a naughty squirrel.
