Wes Anderson’s next film, Isle of Dogs, returns to the furry aesthetic of his 2009 stop-motion comedy Fantastic Mr. Fox. The title references its setting—a Japanese island dubbed “Trash Island,” where all the local dogs are exiled—and this adorable first clip showcases the, ahem, dog-eat-dog stakes whenever precious resources enter the picture.

The characters may all be canines, but that perfectly detailed cross-section of delectable garbage is totally trademark Anderson. Isle of Dogs opens March 23.
