Movie Info & Cast


Mr. and Mrs. Fox live an idyllic home life with their son Ash and visiting young nephew Kristopherson. But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox's wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers -- Boggis, Bunce and Bean -- who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr. Fox at any cost.

Did You Know?


  • It was rumored that Cate Blanchett was originally the voice of Mrs. Fox, but was replaced by Meryl Streep. According to Wes Anderson, however, he had spoken to Blanchett about the part around the time of filming The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), but never got further than that: "I think that was on the Internet before it was really meant to be. For a long time there were versions of the cast out there that were not very accurate."

  • The film is clearly set in England, according to Mr. Fox's morning paper and other clues. However the wolf's Alpine backdrop more resembles the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Kiley is a North American opossum. There are no opossums or any marsupial relatives native to Europe. On the wackbat-trophy's champion list, there is an "M.K. Silvery-Marmoset" which is a creature found only in very limited areas in Brazil.

Anderson has created a world as stylized and inventive as anything he's done... Fox is a visual delight.
