The Fantastic Mr. Fox
directed by Wes Anderson
This might be a brutal year to get one of the three slots in the Oscars animation category - if you care about that sort of thing. In this version of the Roald Dahl book, Wes Anderson uses stop-motion to tell the story of a family of foxes trying to outsmart farmers miffed that their chickens keep disappearing. George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, and Bill Murray supply the voices.
