20th Century Studios and Locksmith Animation’s Ron’s Gone Wrong is 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.
Ron’s Gone Wrong features the voices of Zach Galifianakis (A Wrinkle in Time), Jack Dylan Grazer (Shazam!), Olivia Colman (The Crown), Ed Helms (The Office), and Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom).
The voice cast also includes Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Kylie Cantrall (Gabby Duran and the Unsittables), Ricardo Hurtado (The Goldbergs), Marcus Scribner (black-ish), and Thomas Barbusca (Chad).
The film is directed by Pixar veteran Jean-Philippe Vine (story artist on Cars 3 and The Good Dinosaur) and Locksmith co-founder Sarah Smith (Arthur Christmas) with Octavio Rodriguez (story artist on Coco and The Incredibles 2) co-directing.
The script is written by Peter Baynham (Arthur Christmas, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm) & Smith.
Julie Lockhart (Shaun the Sheep Movie, The Pirates! Band of Misfits), also a co-founder of Locksmith, and Lara Breay produce, with Locksmith chairman Elisabeth Murdoch, Smith and Baynham serving as executive producers.
