While Google Daydream isn’t lacking in content it’s fair to say that the headset isn’t exactly over flowing with new titles. Recent additions include BBC Earth: Life in VR, content viewing platform Plex VR and Rez Infinite. So for Daydream owners who also use either a Pixel or Pixel 2 smartphone Google Spotlight Stories has some exclusive virtual reality (VR) content from upcoming movie Isle of Dogs.
The immersive content takes viewers behind the scenes of Isle of Dogs, with on-set interviews featuring the film’s cast (voiced by Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham and Bob Balaban). You’ll also get nose-to-nose with Chief, Boss, Rex and the rest of the cast while the crew works its stop-motion animation magic around you.
“Isle of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies to Trash Island in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots,” the official description explains. “There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.”
To watch Isle of Dogs Behind the Scenes (in Virtual Reality) all you’ll need to do is download the Google Spotlight Stories app, exclusively for Google Pixel phones (Pixel and Pixel 2) and a Daydream View headset. As mentioned this is an exclusive sneak peek as the film isn’t out until 23rd March, 2018.
However, on 2nd March, Isle of Dogs Behind the Scenes (in Virtual Reality) will be made more widely available in VR, 360 and 2D formats via YouTube VR and Fox Searchlight YouTube channel. So any platform that has the YouTube VR app, including Google Daydream (without Pixel) and Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation VR will be able to view the content.
