Something truly fantastic is coming to DVD and Blu-ray. On March 23rd you’ll be able to own the critically acclaimed film adaptation of the beloved Roald Dahl children’s book, Fantastic Mr. Fox. After a squad-stealing mishap, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) promises his wife, Felicity (Meryl Streep), to find a safe and steady job. Two years later he’s a newspaper columnist living in a hole with Felicity and their son, Ash (Jason Schwartzman). Things are okay, but Fox craves more. He’s thrilled when he finds a great deal on a beautiful home. The only problem is that it’s located right near the factories run by the farmers Walter Boggis, Nathan Bunce, and Franklin Bean. The temptation gets the best of him, and Fox recruits his superintendent and visiting nephew to accompany him on the ultimate raid on all three facilities. More information on its special features, plus its cover art, after the jump.

 

Fantastic Mr. Fox will undoubtedly appeal to longtime fans and young newcomers alike. The animation is mesmerizing, the voice work on point, and the entire experience utterly enthralling. Both the DVD and BD come with an excellent selection of bonus material, but when it comes to a movie this good, the more the better, regardless of the price. If you’re hesitant to jump head first down the foxhole, you can pick up the DVD for $29.98, but if you’re as daring as Fox himself, it’ll be $39.99. I’m curious to check out the animation-related featurettes, but the piece I’m most looking forward to is “A Beginner’s Guide to Whack-Bat.” Here’s the full list of special features:
