How Wes Anderson’s ‘ISLE OF DOGS’ Brought Canine Puppets to Life

Ever wondered how an animated film actually gets made?

Here's how these canine puppets were brought to life to tell the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to a corrupt Mayor, who sets off on an epic journey to save the dogs of Megasaki City who have been exiled to Trash Island.

The film is packed with stars bringing the characters to life alongside the animators.

One of the stars, Bill Murray told the BBC that although this is a comedy, he feels that it is turning out to be a more important film than first anticipated, saying, "If Wes's filmmaking is as good as usual, it will have an impact on all of us. It seems like the themes are very powerful right now, very appropriate for the time."

Bill Murray owns a dog called Tim Murray and added to the BBC that animals are "the property of heaven, there to enlighten us."
