The Fantastic Mr. Fox script - posted by Don

The Fantastic Mr. Fox (alternate link The Fantastic Mr. Fox ) – March 4, 2007 unspecified draft script by Wes Anderson (based on the book by Roald Dahl) – hosted by: Clooney’s Cookie Crumbs – in pdf format

It is the story of one Mr. Fox and his wild-ways of hen heckling, turkey taking and cider sipping, nocturnal, instinctive adventures. He has to put his wild days behind him and do what fathers do best: be responsible. He is too rebellious. He is too wild. He is going to try “just one more raid” on the three nastiest, meanest farmers that are Boggis, Bunce and Bean. It is a tale of crossing the line of family responsibilities and midnight adventure and the friendships and awakenings of this country life that is inhabited by Fantastic Mr. Fox and his friends.

Clever Mr Fox and fantastic words |

[...] Certainly the true nature story has been told many times before, but never like this. Real surreal is the animation.  The characters fascinating and quirky.  The pacing just right.  The voices pitch perfect.  And all of these wonderful features and elements owe their charmosity to the elegantly arranged words in the script.

Is it just me, or does this script lack the “supermarket toast” speech given by Mr. Fox at the movie’s close? Could anyone possibly email the speech to me, at feyseraphim@gmail.com ?
I would appreciate it so much– I loved his closing speech and want to have it handy.Thanks.

I can shed some light on this bit of confusion in relation to Mr. Fox’s supermarket speech that closes the film (having worked in the movie production field before). What you’re looking at is the original script for the film, but like 80 to 90% of all movie scripts, it’s never 100% accurate to the finalized release. Some elements get changed around by the time these movie begin filming (whether actors start ad-libbing their lines, new ideas are made on the fly, scenes and cut scenes getting changed around to smooth out any other changes, or that the changes are an attempt to differentiate the original source, such as a novel, biography, or playwright). Rather than include the changes in the original script and have it rewritten after the film is cut, they worked around it on the fly, as instructed by the movie director or producer. The supermarket speech at the end was clearly something that was conducted after the script was written and after filming had commenced.

If nobody has done so, I can send over a copy of Mr. Fox’s supermarket speech, if nobody has already.
