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.

Monday, November 16, 2009. Two-time Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep gets animated in her new movie, “Fantastic Mr. Fox.” CNN’s Anderson Cooper visits Regis and Kelly. And the Hayes family sets a “Table for 12” on their reality series.
A record 20 films have been submitted for consideration in Oscar’s animated feature film category. The surfeit of entries is likely to force the Academy to nominate five animated films for only the second time since the category was created in 2001. Academy rules state that if fewer than 16 films are submitted in the category, only three can be nominated. More nominations in the category could prove helpful to smaller films included among the entries. Nominations for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be unveiled Feb. 2. A full list can be found under the cut.
Pictures from the New York premiere of “Fantastic Mr. Fox” (November 10) have been added to the Image Library. More pictures and video coverage will follow this weekend.
At the film’s after-party, Meryl spoke to the NY Post’s Cindy Adams, who asked Meryl what possessed her to voice a cartoon fox (married to a George Clooney-voiced Mr. Fox). Meryl says: “Well, the chance to work with Wes Anderson and the chance to fly to Paris, where I did my work, with some extra recording done in Connecticut. When I did my lines, Wes played the other character speaking back to me, which helps give a feel for the action. Very important because reactions and the way your body moves defines your voice. So when I was working, George was on some of the tracks and Wes on some.”

Meryl Streep can be soon heard among Wes Anderson’s voice talents in the upcoming animated stop motion picture “The Fantastic Mr. Fox”. Based on the novel by Roald Dahl, the story is about a fox named Mr Fox. At night, he steals chickens, ducks, and turkeys from three mean, stinky and wealthy farmers – Boggis, Bunce and Bean – in order to feed his family. The farmers are fed up with this and try everything to kill him. One night they wait outside his foxhole in an attempt to ambush him. When Mr Fox emerges from his home, they fire at him but only succeed in blowing off his tail. Determined to catch him, the farmers use spades and shovels to dig their way into the foxes’ home, but Mr and Mrs Fox and their four children dig a tunnel deeper into the ground and manage to escape. George Clooney and Meryl Streep voice Mr. and Mrs. Fox, with additional voice work by Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon and Owen Wilson. The film will release UK screens on October 23, 2009, and US screens on November 13, 2009.
