CONNECTED trailer – Phil Lord and Chris Miller deliver a new rather topical animated film

If you enjoyed THE LEGO MOVIE and SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, you may have been wondering what was next for Phil Lord and Chris Miller. That next movie is CONNECTED, produced by the duo, and directed by Mike Rianda and Jeff Rowe. The story deals with a family being driven more and more apart by technology, and a father who wants to find a way to bring them back together. The voice cast features Danny McBride, Abbi Jacobson, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre, and Oliva Colman. We’re guessing one of the breakout stars here is their pug named Monchi, who looks hilarious in the trailer. Check out the first trailer and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

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!

CONNECTED opens September 18, 2020
