Wes Anderson has released a “trailer teaser” for his upcoming film Isle of Dogs, featuring a Japanese city-scape and 30 seconds of intricate stop-motion. The short clip depicts what appears to be a young man flyposting the previously released posters for the film. The full trailer is due to be released later today.

Isle of Dogs is Anderson’s second feature-length animation – after Fantastic Mr. Fox – and will star Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Bill Murray and many other noteworthy names. Fantastic Mr. Fox received a lot of attention after its release in 2009 and was nominated for two Oscars. Thanks to many visual similarities, Isle of Dogs is, as expected, causing a stir amongst fans of the director.

The film which is expected to be released in March 2018, tells the story of a young boy searching the namesake island for his lost dog.
