Connected Official Trailer
Saving the world can be a “trip” as Sony Pictures Animation releases the official trailer for their upcoming animated feature Connected. View trailer below.
Sony Pictures Animation’s CONNECTED is an original animated comedy from director Mike Rianda (Gravity Falls) and producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Lego Movie), about an everyday family’s struggle to relate while technology rises up around the world! 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!
Haha…this looked pretty good. In the world of animation movies, this particular movie looks like it might have something worth saying about and could possibly be a “hidden cartoon gem” of the year. The premise looks pretty good, but I think the movie could’ve done away with the whole robot invasion type ordeal. Beyond that, the narrative seems quite loving about growing up and letting your kids let go as well. Plus, the animation has a nice and distinct look about it and the voice talents looks solid. All in all, I’m interested to see this movie and to see how it fairs with both critics and moviegoers everywhere.
Connected set is to open in theaters on September 18th, 2020
