London Film Festival organizers say this year's event will open with the world premiere of Wes Anderson's animated feature "Fantastic Mr. Fox."

The stop-motion animated film is based on Roald Dahl's children's book about a community of burrowing animals who battle a trio of evil farmers. It features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray and Michael Gambon.

The 53rd London Film Festival runs Oct. 14 to 29. "Fantastic Mr. Fox" opens in Britain Oct. 23 and in the U.S. on Nov. 13.
