An enchanting modern fable, Fantastic Mr. Fox pits good vs. evil, animal vs. human, nature vs. technology. Mr. Fox will stop at nothing to keep his family safe. But after he has stolen one hen too many, the meanest farmers anywhere conspire to rid themselves of the Foxes. With the help of woodland friends they evade capture, leaving their enemies lying in wait as they help themselves to the farmers’ crops. Having had revenge, the animals return for a sumptuous feast far from danger in the Foxes’ new home, while the frustrated farmers continue to wait in the rain.
