The first snippet of Wes Anderson’s highly anticipated stop-motion film Isle of Dogs is here.
In the forthcoming movie, sick pups are exiled from Japan to a barren, toxic landfill, which is where the clip is set. Determined to rescue his best friend, one boy (not featured) embarks on the journey to “Trash Island,” in an effort to save the dogs. You may recognize a lot of the voices—Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Scarlett Johansson, and more round out the star-powered cast. Isle of Dogs is Anderson’s first stop-motion animation since 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Though it will play at the Berlin Film Festival February 15, the film won’t hit theaters until March 23, 2018. See the full clip below.
