Sony has just released the official trailer for Connected, the latest animated film produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Is Sony Animation about to become a serious contender for Pixar? ‘Cause that seriously looks pretty fun. The animation style looks like it picked up a thing or two from Spider-Verse. It feels unique. It looks colorful. And I’ll admit I chuckled a few times (that dog kissing is a good bit).
I didn’t think I’d be wanting to see this, but now it’s on the list. Always bet on Lord & Miller.
hen 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!
Connected hits theaters September 18, 2020.
