Yoko Ono performs at Amnesty International's "Bringing Human Rights Home" concert at the Barclays Center on Feb. 5, 2014 in New York City.

Yoko Ono will join the cast of Wes Anderson's next film, the animated Isle of Dogs, alongside Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johannson, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton and more.

Production has begun in London for the stop-motion flick about a group of dogs living on an island, Anderson shared in a video announcement Wednesday (Dec. 21).

The director's highly anticipated follow-up to 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel also enlists Tilda Swinton, Liev Schreiber, Frances McDormand and Harvey Keitel.

By donating $10 to a fundraising contest, fans have a chance to tour the set and voice a dog in the movie. The money raised will support Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation non-profit organization, which preserves and restores films.
