But, I’m actually more excited about another upcoming movie that has been adapted from a beloved children’s book–Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox! I love this book. The stop-motion film is directed by Wes Anderson and features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman.
