In a bout nineteen days from now, Isle of Dogs, directed by Wes Anderson will be out in theaters. The movie has about three plots going on based from what I can see from the trailer. There is plot A about the dogs who have been exiled to Trash Island due to the combination of the dog flu epidemic as well as the overpopulation of dogs, I assume world wide. In this relocation of dogs a young Japanese pilot, a 12- year old boy, Atari, ventures to Trash Island to find his dog, Spots, with the assistance of Rex, King, Duke, Boss and Chief, a group of alpha dogs on Trash Island. Plot B focuses on the young female reporter following Atari's adventure from a far and trying to figure out what is behind the senes as Atari and the Alpha dogs search for Spots while avoiding the authorities after them.
The plots premise seems simple, not in a derogatory manner, but in a hopeful optimistic one. It's a story about a 12 year old boy finding his dog. The narration style as well as the medium is what really draws me in to the story. In the trailer we have the main cast of dogs speaking in our native tongue, English, does that mean we will not understand Atari? What is the importance of his voice in all of this? At the end it's all about execution. Fans of Wes Anderson's work remember fondly the Fantastic Mr. Fox. I remember it as well and I count down the days to the Isle of Dogs excited to see what Mr.Anderson has in store for this new feature.
