TRIVIA: This is the longest stop-motion film of all time, beating out Coraline (2009) by two minutes.

Writer and Director Wes Anderson hosted a competition for someone to be a member of the voice cast for this film. The only requirement was that you donated ten dollars or more to the Film Foundation, a non-profit founded by Martin Scorsese, which specializes in the preservation and restoration of film around the world.

The movie was influenced by the work of Akira Kurosawa and Rankin-Bass stop-motion Christmas specials.

The hair of the dogs is made out of Alpacca wool.

Jeff Goldblum recorded his lines over the phone in California. Because of scheduling conflicts he couldn't go to England to record his lines with the rest of the cast.

Wes Anderson's eighth collaboration with Bill Murray.

At the end of the movie Anjelica Huston, who is a long time collaborator with Wes Anderson, is credited as the "Mute Poodle".

"Isle of Dogs" could also be read as "I love dogs"
