In 2009, Hollywood gave us a number of great animated features and even though it lost the Oscar to "Up," "Fantastic Mr. Fox" was arguably the best of the esteemed lot. Abandoning CGI, the stop-motion production directed by Wes Anderson carries a strong undercurrent of anarchy with most of its characters displaying anti-social behavior, yet it still manages to be oddly positive, upbeat and family friendly. Established fans will revel in the revealing extras that cover virtually every aspect of the creative/behind-the scenes production process.
