Ron’s Gone Wrong tells the story of the wonderful walking, talking, digitally connected bot that sweeps the world becoming every kid’s new Best Friend. But when an eleven-year-old boy ends up with one that doesn’t work, his attempts to teach it become a hilarious, heart-warming exploration of what real friendship means in a world of algorithms and social media.


Sounds cute I guess.

Sounds cute, yeah. The team that they've assembled behind this new studio is quite dreamy, so let's hope for the best.

Could be Fox's Pixar/Dreamworks to Blue Sky's WDAS/Illumination. Hope it works out well but 2020 seems like a do or die year for animation, 16 major animated movies are being released.

So, Regal's summer movie program has gone all in hyping this movie and Boss Baby #2 (I've seen 2 summer movies and those 2 trailers have been shown both times)...and this movie's trailer is hilarious to me, the 40 something parent.


It's also something fresh and new...I told my kids that the best and funniest moments may be in the trailer, but dang, they are funny.  I also think this should be a Nov/Dec movie (since it's a "get a gift" movie), but I'm hoping this does well, b/c it's NEW...can I say I enjoy watching new stuff enough!


EDIT TO ADD: And maybe this completely speaks to me personally b/c my mom got me a fake cabbage patch kid when I was a wee one (b/c she wouldn't fight the crowds or pay the exorbitant fees), so I totally understand getting the "not as cool" knock off:)...
