Prepare to cry all over your gears, as the new Ron’s Gone Wrong trailer presents a touching coming-of-age story set in a world dominated by digital devices. Exploring the friendship between a lonely boy and his defective robot, 20th Century Studios’ upcoming animation is expected to hit theaters next month.
The trailer presents Barney (voiced by Jack Dylan Grazer), a kid who has trouble making social connections as he’s the only one who doesn’t have a B*BOT, a futuristic device that connects you to the internet. Barney thinks his luck has changed when his father gifts him his very own B*BOT, but it turns out the robot, Ron (voiced by Zach Galifianakis), is missing some essential code that teaches him safety rules. However, the faulty robot becomes a dear friend to Barney, and the boy will have to go out on an adventure to save his new mechanical friend from the company that wants to repair him before his defective code spreads to other B*BOTs.
Ron’s Gone Wrong is the first theatrical release from the U.K. animation studio Locksmith Animation. The film is directed by Jean-Philippe Vine (story artist on Cars 3 and The Good Dinosaur) and Locksmith’s co-founder Sarah Smith with Octavio Rodriguez (story artist on Coco and The Incredibles 2) co-directing.
