The wait is over. Wes Anderson’s upcoming stop-motion animated film Isle of Dogs finally got its first trailer.

The canine-centered flick stars a pack of dogs exiled—along with others of the canine kind—by a corrupt Japanese mayor to “Trash Island.” A 12-year-old boy, determined to rescue his guard dog, Spots, flies to the toxic waste dump in search of his best friend, and meets the discarded dog ruffians along the way.

With an all-star cast—Greta Gerwig, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton and Yoko Ono, among others—this film has the classic Anderson campiness one is either fond of or very un-fond of. There’s pre-teen romance, cultural criticism, lovable animals and delightfully sad hipster music: all elements of a classic-in-the-making.

The film is slated to hit theaters on March 23, 2018. Watch the trailer below.
