Fantastic Mr Fox – another book adaptation that I am through-the-roof excited about because Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors and my favorite movies are Wes Anderson movies. Unsurprisingly, it also features Wes Anderson regulars Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Angelica Huston and the not as veteran Willem Dafoe and Adrien Brody, which adds in another dimension of squee for me.
I haven’t read Fantastic Mr Fox in years, but Wes Anderson is an amazing storyteller. Wes Anderson’s movies are as visually vivid as the worlds and stories Roald Dahl created. So, I feel confident this will be awesome. Even if it isn’t a good adaptation, nothing could be worse than Tim Burton’s adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. That was a whole heap-load of hot, sizzling poo and a whole other rant in itself.
Here is the trailer for you to decide:
