The first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s upcoming anticipated feature, the stop-motion animated Isle of Dogs, has been released and it’s everything a dog lover could hope for! The film marks Andersons return since his 2014 Oscar nominated The Grand Budapest Hotel, and takes place in a near-future Japan where, after an outbreak of dog attacks, all dogs have been banished to live on a deserted island— the Isle of Dogs. A young boy named Atari Kobayashi ventures to the island in search of his own dog, coming across a pack of Alphas lead by Edward Norton‘s Rex.

Anderson said that the film was strongly influenced by the films of Akira Kurosawa, as well as the stop-motion animated holiday specials made by Rankin/Bass Productions. The film stars Edward Norton along with Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Harvey Keitel, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin, Yoko Ono, Courtney B. Vance, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban, and Liev Schrieber.

Isle of Dogs to hit theaters on March 23, 2018.

  • Thanks for posting this, I’m VERY excited for it. Wes Anderson, stop-motion, and dogs are three of my favorite things!

    Finally got around to watching this trailer. Looks like a nice return to form for Wes, where the focus seems to be on character-driven narrative. I got a bit of Anderson fatigue after watching ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ which, while visually stunning, left a lot to be desired for the characters and story. ‘Isle of Dogs’ looks to be equal parts weird, charming, and stylized as heck. I love it.
