Watch: Wes Anderson Introduces 'Isle of Dogs,' Animated Dog Movie with Insane A-List Cast

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs will star faithful collaborators Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson along with many other big Hollywood names.

"I’m here today to officially announce the start of my new film, which is called Isle of Dogs," says Wes Anderson in a new video posted to YouTube today. 

The movie, currently in production in England, stars Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Greta Gerwig, Yoko Ono, Frances McDormand, and Bob Balaban, among others. Edward Norton, who makes a cameo in the announcement video, plays one of the lead dogs, Rex. (We even get a sneak peek at dailies of his character.)

As Anderson details, the purpose of the announcement video is to offer a "special Isle of Dogs experience" supporting the Film Foundation, a film preservation organization started by Martin Scorsese. "It's dedicated to the preservation and restoration of our whole planet’s shared movie heritage," says Anderson. "Movies don’t last forever.. sometimes they have to be brought back from the dead."

The experience includes an invitation to visit the set, the opportunity to voice of an animated dog in the movie, and more. Further details can be found here.

Anderson previously had success in the animated genre with the stop-motion animated Fantastic Mr. Fox. This forthcoming canine adventure has us foaming at the bits for more.

That is definitely stop-motion animation. One of the prizes for contributing is one of the dog puppets, too. Mr. Fox was done in London at 3 Mills Studio and it wouldn't surprise me if they're working on this one, too..

Hopefully a male character will knock out the teeth of a female character to make up for the bullshit feminist propaganda infecting Fantastic Mr. Fox. Because women are 'equal' to men right? LOL!

I'm so excited for this movies. Though seeing how dogs usually end up in the Wes Anderson movies, I'm wondering how many of them survive.
