After months of teasing, we’re finally getting our first look at the new Wes Anderson movie. Entitled, Isle of Dogs, the new animated adventure will tell the tale of deserted talking canines who have been banished by the Japanese government due to a growing flu epidemic.

The complex story is heightened even further when a 12-year-old boy ventures to the dog-only island in search of his beloved pet who he could simply not leave behind. Judging from the film’s debut trailer that released today, the project is shaping up to be one of 2018’s most heartwarming features.

Last year, news broke that Wes Anderson was auctioning off a guest appearance in the upcoming movie in exchange for charitable donations. So far, there has yet to be any word regarding who landed the special one-off role. In the meantime, we do have confirmation regarding much of Isle of Dogs’ star-studded cast. Along with Anderson regulars like Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, and Tilda Swinton, the flick will also boast Scarlett Johannson, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Liev Schreiber, Greta Gerwig, and more.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a few more months before buying a ticket to Isle of Dogs, as the film is currently slated to release in March of next year. In the meantime, you can take a look at the beautiful animation on display below in the first full-length teaser. This is Wes Anderson’s first stop-motion production since the criminally underrated 2009 movie, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
