“Fantastic Mr. Fox” DVD Review & Giveaway
I had been wanting to see “Fantastic Mr. Fox“ on DVD for a while and was excited to have the opportunity to review it with my family. It was a really cute movie! I enjoyed it and my boys enjoyed it as well! I thought George Clooney was a perfect fit for Mr. Fox and Meryl Streep was a perfect fit for Mrs. Fox! It was a cute movie and I’m glad I had the opportunity to watch it on DVD. The DVD will be released on Tuesday, March 23rd by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and retails for $29.98!
Academy Award-winning Hollywood heavyweights George Clooney (Up In The Air) and Meryl Streep (It’s Complicated) lend their voices to the hilarious, heartwarming and dazzling stop-motion animated adventure from visionary director Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenebaums)Fantastic Mr. Fox. In the re-imagined classic family tale, Mr. and Mrs. Fox (Clooney and Streep) live a happy home life with their eccentric son Ash (Jason Schwartzman: The Darjeeling Limited) and visiting nephew Kristopherson. That is until Mr. Fox slips into his sneaky, old ways and plots the greatest heist the animal world has ever seen. When mean old farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean join forces to surround Mr. Fox and his family, they don’t realize they are not dealing with any old fox – it’s Fantastic Mr. Fox and he has a fantastic master plan to save the day! Based on the beloved best-selling book by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Fantastic Mr. Fox is family fun at its finest. Anderson employs a colorful supporting cast to bring his eccentric characters to life including Bill Murray (Lost In Translation), Owen Wilson (Marley & Me) and Willem Dafoe (Spiderman triology). The DVD and Blu-ray Disc/DVD Combo Pack are packed with behind-the-scenes bonus features, including a special inside look at how stop-motion animation really works and much more.
