Fantastic Mr. Fox

Does anyone have any new dirt on this, other than that Selick left it to work on Coraline?

Pictures of models, bits of script from the first and last segments (the original ones Anderson created to sandwich the book's storyline)?

No?

Anyone excited about it? It's Dahl, and it's stop-motion animation. I'm sold, Anderson or no.

The film is finished, and the voice recording is done. The movie will be released in November later this year. Interesting tidbit: Anderson decided not to record voices in a studio. He took the actors to the forest, an attic and a stable and recorded there. It's gonna be a great movie!

I read about his decision not to record in the studio.

I'm really looking forward to this. I really, really want to get a look at the models. Since Selick was on the project in the conceptual stage, I imagine they will have a Selick-y look to them. I imagine they will look more Selick-y than Aardman-y, at the very least. I imagine they will also be going the replaceable head route, and not the "malleable mouths and eyes" route. I suppose they could go for a mix between the two.

Here's a bit from last October where Murray talks about the voice he wanted to use.

Hmmm......those pictures look a bit dull to me. I'll have to see it in motion to really tell, but those stills don't seem "alive" to me. Hopefully they chose some poor stills to share and the rest of it looks better.

Stills from stop-motion features tend (in my opinion) to seem more dead than stills from films or even cartoons. I'm not sure why that is. Perhaps it's because a still frame from a stop-motion film is simply a picture taken of a dressed set with motionless dolls on it. I'm not quite sure. I noticed it for the first time with promotional pictures taken for Chicken Run.
