Review The Movie : Fantastic Mr.Fox

Review The Movie : Fantastic Mr.FoxReview The Movie : Fantastic Mr.Fox. Joe Roth and Revolution Studios bought the film rights to Fantastic Mr. Fox in 2004. Wes Anderson signed on as director with Henry Selick, who worked with Anderson on The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, as animation director. Anderson signed on because Roald Dahl is one of his heroes.In adapting the novel, the story the novel covers what would amount to the second act of the film. Anderson added new scenes to serve for the film's beginning and end. Selick left the project to work on the Neil Gaiman story Coraline in early 2006. Mark Gustafson is his replacement. Fox Animation Studios became the project's home in October 2006 after Revolution folded.

In September 2007, Anderson announced voice work would begin. The director chose to record the voices outside of a studio: "We went out in a forest, went in an attic, went in a stable. We went underground for some things. There was a great spontaneity in the recordings because of that." He said of the production design, "We want to use real trees and real sand, but it’s all miniature." Great Missenden, where Roald Dahl lived, has a major influence on the film's look. The film mixes several forms of animation but consists primarily of stop motion.Animation took place in London, with Anderson directing the crew who animated Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.Selick, who kept in contact with Anderson, said the director would act out scenes while in Paris and send them to the animators via iPhone.
