Set in a dystopian future Japan in which all dogs have been exiled to a quarantine island after a mysterious” canine influenza “, Isle of Dogs follows the lead character, a 12 -year-old called Atari as he searches for his puppy, Spots. Isle of Dog’s English-language voice cast includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton. The movie discovered itself embroiled in a “whitewashing” disagreement when its trailer was liberated, over its casting of principally white American actors in a Japanese fix. Nonetheless, it has since been revealed that Canadian-Japanese actor Koyu Rankin will voice its important role of Atari.
