First, it's by Wes Anderson, whose movies I love (like The Royal Tenenbaums, starring Buckley the Beagle-- plus I have a sneaking suspicion that Alice may actually be a Tenenbaum).
Second, guess who's doing the voice of Mr. Fox? Oh, yeah-- Studs With Pugs Honoree, George Clooney (otherwise known as the future Mr. Alice's Human Female). Fantastic, indeed.
Third, it's based off the Roald Dahl book. Who doesn't love Roald Dahl?
The Human Male stumbled across the trailer yesterday, and now I'm even more excited.
While watching this, two things struck me as particularly funny: one, the "beagles love blueberries" comment. I've never really tried with any of our other dogs, but Alice will do anything for a blueberry. From now on, I'm going to attribute her obsession with blueberries to her beagle half.
Second, Mr. Fox's "trademark", that obnoxious whistle and tongue click, is also The Human Male's irritating trademark. He's been doing it at least since we got Alice. It drives me absolutely nuts, but I do think it's kind of funny that it's in a movie, and actually gets called out as being irritating.
Plus it also gets Alice's attention when she's in a blueberry trance.
