Exciting news for all those who love the quirky characteristics and peculiar charms of the whimsical world of Wes Anderson. The first clip of Anderson’s highly anticipated stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs has been released.
The clip in question is only 1 minute and 40 seconds but it already captures the humour and artistic flair of the film.
Isle of Dogs will be the director’s first feature-length film since The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014 which won 4 Oscar’s.
The clip in question opens with a mysterious sack being dumped on the island inhabited entirely by dogs. This scene beautifully introduces the characters to the audience. We’re introduced to the canine crew; Chief, Rex, Boss, Duke and King.
We see them battle against a rival gang of dogs over the contents of the mysterious sack. The goods at stake are “two banana peels, a mouldy rice cake, some sardine bones, a pile of broken egg shells and a rotten gizzard with maggots all over it.”
The comedic timing, artistic beauty of the stop-motion animation and sheer visual delight of this scene has me so pumped for the movie! I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see it.
You can watch the first clip from Isle of Dogs below.
It will be Wes Anderson’s second stop-motion feature-length film after the brilliant Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009). The movie is due to be released on the 23rd of March in US cinemas. The international release will be in April.
As with all of Anderson’s movies, Isle of Dogs boasts an impressive cast. Alongside Edward Norton who voices Rex, the film features the vocal stylings of; Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Yoko Ono and Greta Gerwig (to name but a few).
