Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tenenbaums) worked closely with the Roald Dahl estate on this stop motion animated adaptation of his much loved book, going so far as to pen the screenplay in the author’s very own writing shed in which he wrote his famous stories.

The result is a rousing adventure following Mr. Fox and his quirky band of animal friends at they try to outwit the farmers on their tails - a magnificent fusion of the two men’s creative minds which will delight audiences little and large. Anderson regulars Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman round off a star-studded cast which features George Clooney and Meryl Streep as Mr. and Mrs. Fox.
