Ron was wrong just released a new trailer for a movie that everyone can relate to. The animated adventure looks at the friendship and ties that bind us through the eyes of our youth. At a time when many of us have been apart over the years from the ones we love (to a degree anyway) Ron was wrong discusses how to connect through technology in the form of a new toy.
The new trailer looks to a future where the world is changing and children are connected to “B-bots” who walk, talk and are digitally connected. Ron was wrong tells the story of Barney, who discovers that Ron never works like he should … not at all. We can relate because at some point in our childhood we had to have that “one toy” because everyone was getting it. Barney is the latest kid to have this new craze, but more importantly, he’s also a struggling kid when it comes to friendship. When his father surprises him with his new B-Bot, he quickly realizes that Ron is not well or is not working or like the others, like himself.
Disney / 20th Century is the mastermind behind this film that hits theaters on October 22. The film brings the voice talents of Zach galifianakis (Ron), along with Jack Dylan Graze, will play Barney, a socially awkward high school student. It marks the first animated film from UK-based Locksmith Animation, directed by co-founder Sarah Smith (Arthur Christmas) and former Pixar story artist Jean-Philippe Vine ( Cars 3.) Peter Baynham (the Boratmovies) and Smith co-wrote the script with an emphasis on technological frustration and unhealthy dependence on social media.
Coconut Storyteller Octavio Rodríguez served as co-director, Julie Lockhart (co-founder and president of Locksmith) produced with Lara Breay (Penguins of Madagascar), DNEG Visual Effects Studio (Dune) made her first animated film, and the voice cast also includes Olivia Colman (The crown), Ed Helms (The office), Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Kylie Cantrall (Gabby Duran and the Unstable), Ricardo Hurtado (theGoldberg), Marcus Scribner (Blackish) and Thomas Barbusca (Chad). So you can see this is an A-list voice cast for this movie.
The marketing campaign has already started as Mcdonalds launches a new song with his Happy Meals and it’s about Ron. The food includes different variations of B-Bots that not only look really cool but light up, talk, and can play (with the download of an app). This is probably one of the best toys the fast food chain has had in a long time. and also a great Disney marketing move. Even if I didn’t have kids, I feel like I would watch this movie because I think the message is something that we should all see. Let us know what you think of the new movie.
