First stop motion since Fantastic Mr. Fox and (yet again) this looks to be the Wes Andersoniest Wes Anderson film yet.
You had me at Wes Anderson + Japan + dogs + first stop motion animation since Fantastic Mr. Fox =
ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of ATARI KOBAYASHI, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
Much more Wes on Ele here.
