Fantastic Mr. Fox Trailer

July 30, 2009

The first trailer for Wes Anderson's stop-motion Fantastic Mr. Fox is here, and it's got a very original look to it. Beside the fact that it's animated in stop-motion, which is itself a rarity these days (a recent example is Coraline), it's interesting to see all the furry animals attired in traditional Anderson garb. The animation, on the other hand, does not look so fantastic: the facial animation and expressiveness of the characters seems compromised, unlike past productions by Tim Burton. Judge for yourself after the jump.
