Fox Searchlight has released a new promo clip for writer and director Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated feature Isle of Dogs, featuring a look at the animation process.

The five-minute clip includes interviews with animation director Mark Waring and behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the movie.

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.

Isle of Dogs opens in limited release March 23 in Austin, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington D.C. The release expands March 28 and the movie will open April 6 in theaters nationwide.
