Earlier this week we brought you cast interviews for Isle of Dogs [take a look here], and now a behind the scenes featurette has arrived online for the upcoming stop-motion animated film which explores how a unique team of 25 animators and 10 assistants brought director Wes Anderson’s vision to life on screen; watch it below…
ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of ATARI KOBAYASHI, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
Isle of Dogs is set for release on March 23rd in the States and on March 30th in the UK and features a voice cast that includes Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Liev Schreiber, Harvey Keitel, Courtney B. Vance, Kunichi Nomura, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin and Yoko Ono.
