One week ahead of the limited theatrical release of Isle of Dogs, the film’s distributor, Fox Searchlight Pictures, has shared a five-minute animated companion short imagined and directed by Wes Anderson. No doubt an homage to Nick Park’s iconic Creature Comforts from 1989, the piece was shot in London over three months during the making of the film. It features the voices of Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham, and Bob Balaban as animated dogs on set talking about their characters.

Fox Searchlight Pictures will release Isle of Dogs on March 23.
