Wes Anderson has teamed up with Montreal, Canada-based vr studio Felix & Paul Studios to create a vr experience centered around his upcoming stop-motion feature Isle of Dogs.

The project – Isle of Dogs Behind the Scenes (in Virtual Reality) – is set to debut next month in the New Frontier program at the Sundance Film Festival.

Details about the vr project are sparse, but the description explains that the experience inserts the viewer into the miniature world of the film, “face to face with the cast of dogs as they are interviewed on set, while the crew of the film works around you to create the animation you are seeing.”

Expect to see film studios create more vr tie-ins for animation releases. Earlier this year, Disney-Pixar released the first vr tie-in for one of its features, Coco VR, created with Facebook’s Oculus division and vr studio Magnopus.
