Isle Of Dogs Animated Cast Interviews Are Pure Joy

Like a lot of Wes Anderson‘s films, Isle of Dogs is about as bonkers as you could hope, but with an almost surreal display of emotion. Expanding his animated efforts after Fantastic Mr. Fox with another canine adventure, this one is, at least theoretically, a much darker affair, and things were rather dark to begin with.

The film follows a young boy, Atari Kobayashi, and his effort to rescue his bodyguard-dog, Spots, from Trash Island, a garbage dump that all dogs have been “sentenced to.”

As you might expect, the film features an absolutely unbelievable voice cast that includes – Bryan Cranston, Koyu Rankin, Edward Norton, Bob Balaban, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, F. Murray Abraham, Yoko Ono, Tilda Swinton, Ken Watanabe, Mari Katsuki, Fisher Stevens, and more.

Well, if you’re Wes Anderson making an animated movie, you might come up with some different ideas, and this featurette of cast interviews is both a surprising treat and just the sort of thing that feels very Wes Anderson.

Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, and more give insights into the movie while, sort of, in character.

Take a look below, and make sure you don’t miss this one.

ISLE OF DOGS opens in limited theaters on: Friday, March 23rd 2018 (Austin, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington D.C.)
Expanding on Wednesday, March 28th  2018 and In theaters nationwide Friday, April 6th
