Fantastic Mr. Fox is a 2009 American stop-motion animated comedy film based on Roald Dahl’s children’s novel of the same name.
It was Wes Anderson’s first animated film and first film adaptation.
The film was released in the autumn of 2009 and stars George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon, and Owen Wilson.

The story revolves around an anthropomorphic, tricky, clever fox named Mr. Fox who lives underground beside a tree with his wife and four children.
In order to feed his family, he makes nightly visits to farms owned by three wicked, cruel and dim-witted farmers named Boggis, Bunce and Bean and snatches the livestock available on each man’s farm.
Tired of being outsmarted by Mr. Fox, the evil farmers devise a plan to ambush him as he leaves his burrow, but they succeed only in shooting off his tail…
