  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Isle of Dogs is a 2018 film directed by Wes Anderson. In this article, we will explore five interesting facts about the movie. The cast of Isle of Dogs is filled with big names, although their faces may not be seen on screen. Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Frances McDormand, and Bill Murray are just a few of the talented actors who provided their voices for the film. Interestingly, this marks Bill Murray's eighth collaboration with a director. The movie also includes first-time Anderson collaborators like Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, and Greta Gerwig. Additionally, given the setting of the film in Japan, Anderson included performers of Asian descent, such as Ken Watanabe, Yoko Ono, and newcomer Koyu Rankin. Another fascinating fact is that Wes Anderson offered fans the chance to be a part of the film through a campaign on CrowdRise, which was co-founded by Edward Norton. This gave fans the opportunity of a lifetime to meet the renowned director. Stay tuned to discover more intriguing facts about Isle of Dogs!

  • I don't think I can stomach any more of this garbage.
  • Though you won't see their faces, you're bound to hear more than a few familiar voices in this animated feature.
  • The cast features many of Anderson's regular players, including Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Frances McDormand, and Bill Murray.
  • Speaking of which, this is Murray's eighth collaboration with a director.
  • The film also stars first-time Anderson collaborators Brian Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Greta Gerwig, and several others who've never had the privilege of working with Anderson before.
  • Given the movie's setting in Japan, Anderson additionally enlisted several performers of Asian descent, such as Ken Watanabe, Yoko Ono, and newcomer Koyu Rankin as young Atari Kobayashi.
  • Number 4, there was a competition to be in the film.
  • I've teamed up with Edward and with CrowdRise to offer a special Isle of Dogs experience.
  • If you live and breathe movies, chances are you've always dreamed of meeting Wes Anderson.
  • The director offered his fans the opportunity of a lifetime through a campaign on CrowdRise, which Edward Norton co-founded.
  • By donating $10 or more to Martin Scorsese's The Film Foundation, a non-profit group devoted to film preservation, a lucky winner would get to visit the movie's set in London and even voice one of the dogs.
  • Barking, howling, and whimpering may be required.
  • Additional prizes included a Criterion Collection DVD signed by Wes, as well as a signed copy of the Wes Anderson collection book.
  • In the end, the campaign reportedly raised over $250,000, helping to keep film history alive.
  • So thank you very much for your support, and we, well, you can read all about the project here on this page.
  • Number 3, it's stop-motion animated.
  • We're a pack of scary, indestructible alpha dogs.
  • Wes Anderson possesses one of the most unique visual styles of any director working today.
  • He has incorporated stop-motion animation and miniatures into many of his projects, including The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
  • Anderson went all out in 2009 with the Oscar-nominated Fantastic Mr. Fox.
  • Why did you lie to me?
  • Because I'm a wild animal.
  • Based on Roald Dahl's beloved children's novel, this was not only Anderson's first film adaptation, but also his first full-length stop-motion animated feature.
  • Anderson returns to the realm of stop-motion in Isle of Dogs.
  • While Anderson has acknowledged that CG animated films tend to be more successful at the box office, the handmade charm and texture of stop-motion has always been magical to him.
  • Well, uh, I was always interested in stop-motion.
  • I just like the kind of, uh, handmade, uh, feeling.
  • Or that it actually is handmade.
  • Number 2, the film may be Anderson's apology to dog lovers.
  • There seems to be a running gag in Anderson's movies that if you're an animal, specifically a dog, you won't live to see the end credits.
  • In The Royal Tenenbaums, Buckley gets run over by a car.
  • In Moonrise Kingdom, Snoopy meets his end via an arrow to the neck.
  • Even in Fantastic Mr. Fox, man's best friend wasn't safe.
  • Gee, good thing all dogs go to heaven.
  • Isle of Dogs, which is notably the first film Anderson solely directed and wrote, could be seen as an apology to canine lovers everywhere.
  • Perhaps that's why the film's title can also be read as, I Love Dogs.
  • Now, ain't that clever?
  • Wherever he is, if he's alive, we'll find your dog.
  • Number 1, it was inspired by Akira Kurosawa and Rankin Bass Productions.
  • When most people think of films like Seven Samurai and Ran, stop-motion Christmas specials aren't the next thing that come to mind.
  • But Wes Anderson isn't like most people.
  • Anderson has cited legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa as a key inspiration for Isle of Dogs.
  • This is not only evident from the film's Japanese setting, but also the poster, which simply screams Kurosawa's signature touch.
  • Anderson additionally acknowledged stop-motion master Ray Harryhausen, and especially the works of Rankin Bass Productions.
  • The titular Isle of Dogs could actually be seen as a modern island of misfit toys.
  • We're on the island of misfit toys.
  • The film's unusual premise feels like something that could have come from the minds behind Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July.
  • Believe it or not, Rudolph's nose went out.
  • And all because of something that started years and years ago.
