When previously talking about the film Anderson says the film was inspired by Rankin-Bass Christmas TV specials and the work of Akira Kurosawa. He explained:
“I really liked these TV Christmas specials in America. I always liked the creatures in the Harryhausen-type films, but really these American Christmas specials were probably the thing that really made me want to do it.”
I'm such of huge fan of Anderson's work. I just love his sense of humor and his storytelling and filmmaking style. This is a movie that I'm incredibly excited about seeing and it looks like it turned out great! Here's the synopsis:
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.
The movie opens in theaters March 23, 2018.
