Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” is Coming

What will be Wes Andertson’s first stop-motion animation since 2009’s brilliant “Fantastic Mr Fox,” “Isle of Dogs” is set for release in March next year. Inspired by director Akira Kurosawa and Christmas television specials, the film boasts an impressive cast of voice actors—from Scarlett Johansson and Yoko Ono to frequent Anderson collaborators Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton. Set in future Japan, the storyline centers around an outbreak of dog flu resulting in all pooches being banished to a garbage dump island. A 12-year-old boy arrives to find his own pet, and Anderson’s knack for beauty, wit and heartbreak will surely collide.
