When Katie Mitchell (voiced by Abbi Jacobson), a creative outsider, is accepted into the film school of her dreams, her plans to meet ‘her people’ at college are upended when her nature-loving dad Rick (voiced by Danny McBride) determines the whole family should drive Katie to school together and bond as a family one last time. Katie and Rick are joined by the rest of the family, including Katie’s wildly positive mom Linda (voiced by Maya Rudolph), her quirky little brother Aaron (voiced by Mike Rianda), and the family’s delightfully chubby pug Monchi for the ultimate family road trip.
Suddenly, the Mitchells’ plans are interrupted by a tech uprising: all around the world, the electronic devices people love—from phones, to appliances, to an innovative new line of personal robots—decide it’s time to take over. With the help of two friendly malfunctioning robots, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world! (synopsis via The Nerdist)
Sooooo … the machines have finally decided they have bleeping had enough, rising up to take us on and who are the people best placed to possibly save us?
Would you believe a squabbling all American family who really want to be close but can’t quite manage it before because … electronics?
You wouldn’t but how about I tell you that’s who you’re stuck with?
It may not sound like much on real life but in Connected, a potentially hilarious animated film from comedy gods Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)
Connected opens in Australia on 17 September, USA on 18 September 2020 and in UK on 9 October.
