Animated Wes Anderson Film to Open AFI Fest

Wes Anderson's The Fantastic Mr. Fox to open AFI Fest

The Royal Tenenbaums writer-director Wes Anderson is already garnering positive attention for his first stop-motion animated film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, as it has been picked to open the American Film Institute’s Film Festival.
