Connected introduces audiences to the Mitchells, a normal family thrust into an epic battle when a horde of evil robots threatens their vacation (and the fate of the world). Along the way, the Mitchells discover that they must band together, put down their phones, and reconnect as a family to take down this vicious technological enemy.
The Art of Connected gives insight into how the filmmakers were able to bring this fresh, new vision to the screen through concept art, sketches, and early character designs, accompanied by exclusive commentary from the animation team, including cowriters/codirectors Jeff Rowe and Michael Riana, alumni of the team behind Emmy Award–winning Gravity Falls, and executive producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the dynamic duo behind The Lego Movie and the Academy Award–winning SpiderMan: Into the SpiderVerse.
