Incredible sets from Wes Anderson’s ‘Isle of Dogs’ to be displayed in new exhibition

In the lead-up to the new Wes Anderson film, Isle of Dogs, an exhibition is being held in London featuring an intricate and detailed display of the original sets and puppets from the movie.

Held in conjunction with Fox Searchlight Pictures, the free exhibition will be hosted at The Store on the Strand in central London from March 23 to April 5.

Among the 17 intricate sets, guests to the Isle of Dogs exhibition will also be treated to the life-sized recreation of a Japanese noodle bar from the film and sake cocktails available on Thursdays and Fridays nights.

Isle of Dogs is set in the dystopian future Japan, where pooches have been exiled to a remote island in the wake of a dog flu outbreak. The hero of the story is twelve-year-old Atari, who lands on the island searching for his beloved Spots.

Primarily filmed in east London, audiences can also examine these detailed designs while music from the film soundtracks their experience.

Featuring an ensemble cast of Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Greta Gerwig, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum and Frances McDormand among others, this is clearly an exhibit Wes Anderson fans owe it to themselves to see.
