In Connected (formerly titled as The Mitchells Vs. The Machines), The Mitchells are a dysfunctional but loving family, who goes on a road trip along with their pudgy family pug Monchi when nature-loving dad Rick decided that driving Katie to college is the perfect opportunity to bond as a family. However, their road trip is suddenly interrupted by a tech uprising that threatens mankind: all around the world, the electronic devices people love — from phones to self-driving cars, to a sleek new line of personal robots — turn on humanity. With the help of two malfunctioning robots and the family’s delightfully overweight pug, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world!

The voice cast is led by: Abbi Jacobson (Broad City) as Katie Mitchell, an aspiring film nerd who’s just been accepted to her dream college; Danny McBride (Despicable Me, The Angry Birds Movie) as nature-loving dad Rick Mitchell; Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6) as positive mom Linda Mitchell; director Mike Rianda as the quirkly little brother Aaron. It will also feature the voices of Eric Andre (The Lion King) as tech inventor Mark Bowman and Oscar winner Olivia Colman as Siri-like voice assistant called PAL.

The adventure comedy film will arrive in theaters on September 18.
