Wes Anderson's latest film is a stop motion animated version of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox - which opens in wide release this week.

Way, way back in 1930, Wladyslaw Starewicz, the grand master of animation created what was the sixth full length animated feature length film Le roman de Renard (The Tale of the Fox). It would have been the fourth, but it wasn't released until 1937 because of soundtrack problems.

The film is based on the old story about Renard the Fox. The film is beautifully animated and clearly the style influenced Anderson's latest film.
