Get ready to meet your new best friend. That’s assuming that you have plenty of batteries. 20th Century Studios is celebrating Best Friends Day by revealing the new trailer for the animated comedy adventure, Ron’s Gone Wrong.
The film is the first theatrical release from the U.K.-based CG animation studio Locksmith Animation. It tells the story of: “Barney, a socially awkward middle-schooler and Ron, his new walking, talking, digitally-connected device, which is supposed to be his “Best Friend Out of the Box.” Ron’s hilarious malfunctions, set against the backdrop of the social media age, launch them into an action-packed journey in which boy and robot come to terms with the wonderful messiness of true friendship.”
This story of a boy and his buggy bot stars the voices of Zach Galifianakis (“A Wrinkle in Time”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“Shazam!”), Olivia Colman (“The Crown”), Ed Helms (“The Office”), Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”), Rob Delaney (“Deadpool 2“), Kylie Cantrall (“Gabby Duran and the Unsittables”), Ricardo Hurtado (“The Goldbergs”), Marcus Scribner (“Black-ish”) and Thomas Barbusca (“Chad”). Pixar mainstay Jean-Philippe Vine (story artist on “Cars 3” and “The Good Dinosaur”) will direct along with Locksmith co-founder Sarah Smith (“Arthur Christmas”) with Octavio Rodriguez (story artist on “Coco” and “The Incredibles 2”). The script is written by Peter Baynham (“Arthur Christmas”) & Smith. Producing will be Locksmith co-founder Julie Lockhart (“Shaun the Sheep Movie,” “The Pirates! Band of Misfits”), Lara Breay, Locksmith chairman Elisabeth Murdoch, Smith and Baynham.
The fun begins when Ron’s Gone Wrong arrived in theaters on October 22, 2021. Keep checking back for updates.
