Tech takes over in Connected from producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller

We're already jazzed for Connected, the new animated movie from hit makers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller...

Sony Pictures Animation has just dropped the trailer for Connected, the new animated movie from director Mike Rianda (Gravity Falls) and producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Lego Movie), due in theatres October 9.

Connected is about an everyday family’s struggle to relate while technology rises up around the world (something we can all sympathise with). When Katie Mitchell (voiced by Abbi Jacobson), a creative outsider, is accepted into the film school of her dreams, her plans to fly to college are upended when her nature-loving dad Rick ( 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 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 smartphones and appliances, not to mention robot helpers, decide it’s time to take over.

With the help of two friendly malfunctioning ‘bots, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world…
