Fantastic Mr Fox's writing hut

Many of you will have seen Wes Anderson's recent stop-motion version of Roald Dahl's story Fantastic Mr Fox. Empire has a very nice look at the creation of the sets on their online site and pictured above is Mr Fox chatting to possum (?) Kylie. "We took photos of Roald's old writing hut and literally recreated it, even down to the notes on the wall," producer Allison Abbate told Empire.

Dahl told his biographer Donald Sturrock that the hut helped him think like a child. "I can cut myself off there," Dahl said, "and within minutes become six and seven and eight again."
