Watch: 'Isle of Dogs' Promo Features the Cast Discussing Their Dogs
"I admired Spots… I would love to have a dog like Spots." Fox Searchlight has released a fun new promo featurette for Wes Anderson's stop-motion animated movie Isle of Dogs, which hits theaters at the end of this month. Every movie records interviews with the cast while on set, to use for promotional purposes later. For this movie, they recorded these interviews with the cast, and then animated their interviews as the dogs they're playing. It's adorable. Anderson explains to Vulture: that after recording spontaneously, "we spent the next several months figuring out how to make those into the cast interviews." Isle of Dogs features the voice of Edward Norton as Rex, along with a huge ensemble: Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, F. Murray Abraham, and Bob Balaban. I really, really love this film, mostly because it's all about why dogs are the best. Enjoy.
Here's the "Cast Interviews" featurette for Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs, originally debuted by Vulture:
The latest stop-motion animated feature film from director Wes Anderson, a co-production with Studio Babelsberg. Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy's odyssey in search of his dog.

Fox Searchlight will release Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs in select US theaters starting March 23rd later this month. Go see this film in theaters! It's worth it. Who can't wait to watch?

Wes Anderson sure knows how to craft unique characters. And that cast! Whew, looks like a breath of fresh air.

Looks like magic. I hope they address the whole not speaking Japanese thing though.

I feel you. It’s like “Mr. Fox” (well, exactly like “Mr. Fox”, actually) with the people being British and all the animals having American accents. I don’t know, maybe it’s one of Wes Anderson’s quirks, perhaps?

I can't wait for this. Once again, Wes Anderson serving up something original and eccentric.
