The Witcher Casting

First Look at Connected

EW released exclusive images from Sony’s upcoming animated film called Connected, showing a family of four engrossed in their phones and tablets while the father looks particularly annoyed. EW also shared the following synopsis:

Every family road trip, no matter how meticulously mapped out, will face at least one unforeseen crisis. Maybe it’s a blown tire on a little-traveled back road. Maybe it’s a beloved stuffed animal left at a rest stop, 150 miles back. And maybe it’s a global tech uprising, where the world’s electronic devices gain sentience and join forces in an attempt to exterminate all humanity.

We’ll see the tech uprising when Connected hits theaters on September 18th, 2020.
