Fans of animation movies will definitely enjoy this week’s selection “The Mitchells vs the Machines”.
Written and directed by Michael Rianda (Gravity Falls) and Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Disenchantment), the movie follows Katie Mitchell, a creative outsider who is accepted into the film school of her dreams, only to see her plans of meeting “her people” dashed when her nature-loving dad Rick elects to take the whole family, including Katie’s wildly positive mom Linda, her quirky little brother Aaron and the family’s delightfully chubby pug Monchi, on a road trip to Katie’s school for one final family-bonding trip before she leaves for college.
Their plans are interrupted by a tech uprising all around the world as the electronic devices people love decide it’s time to take over and, with the help of two friendly malfunctioning robots, 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, Danny McBride (Despicable Me, The Angry Birds Movie) as Rick Mitchell, Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6) as Linda Mitchell, director Mike Rianda as Aaron.
The movie is currently streaming on Netflix.
