Sony Pictures Entertainment has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming animated sci-fi comedy Connected which follows The Mitchells as they take the ultimate family road trip, only to find their plans disrupted by a tech uprising, forcing them to work together to save the world; check it out here…
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!
Directed by Michael Rianda and Jeff Rowe, and produced by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Connected features the voice talents of Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Abbi Jacobson, and Michael Rianda.
Connected is set for release on September 18th.
