Award-winning director Wes Anderson's latest feature film, Isle of Dogs, is his second journey into the world of stop-motion animation, following 2009's Fantastic Mr. Fox. The movie will hit theaters this weekend. Set in Japan, the Akira Kurosawa and Rankin/Bass-inspired film tells the story of a boy's search for his dog and features an ensemble voice cast including Bryan Cranston and some of the usual Wes Anderson players such as Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, and Bob Balaban.
This video gives a glimpse into the staggering amount of work that goes into this style of animation:
Fans are impressed with the work that went into the film:
Isle of Dogs harnessed the skills of no fewer than 27 animators and 10 assistants in a meticulous process Anderson describes as, “muscle memory in ultra slow-motion.”
Already making its mark, Isle of Dogs won the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival.
Next stop: Fandango!
