The fantastic, thrill-seeking Mr Fox goes back to his thieving ways.

Director Wes Anderson is known (and loved/hated) for his quirky visual style and humorous offbeat dramas (Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Darjeeling Ltd.) He has dabbled with animation before, but this time Anderson revives the long-dead art of stop-motion animation for a feature-length adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s tale. Longing for his salad days as a rambunctious chicken-stealing youngster, Mr Fox decides to pull off another heist just for kicks. The victims of his crime spree, three nasty farmers, come up with a cunning plan to snuff out the menace, but face an enemy far more sly than they imagine.
