Drew McWeeny says that Wes Anderson’s latest is “brimming over with love and a sly sense of play that makes it one of the most instantly enjoyable of Anderson’s films.”
The March 23 release will be the filmmaker’s fourth film to play Berlinale after world premiering The Grand Budapest Hotel there in 2014. That movie became Anderson’s highest grossing U.S. hit, as well as winning four Oscars.
Anderson’s first film since his 2014 Oscar-winning The Grand Budapest Hotel is also his first animated film since 2009’s Oscar-nominated The Fantastic Mr. Fox. It will be released on March 31, 2018.
Set in Japan, the story follows a boy’s odyssey in search of his dog. The voice cast includes Anderson regulars such as Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum and Bob Balaban, as well as Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Liev Schreiber, Greta Gerwig and none other than Yoko Ono.
