Twentieth Century Studios and Locksmith Animation’s latest animated movie, Ron’s Gone Wrong, is getting a physical release, just in time for Christmas. It will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on December 7th. The movie will be available for Disney+ streaming on December 15th.
Ron’s Gone Wrong is about 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.
The character design may look familiar because some of the people behind this movie also worked on Arthur’s Christmas, Shaun the Sheep Movie, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, and Coco.
The studio behind the hit animated Christmas movie, Klaus, also had a role in the creation of Ron’s Gone Wrong. On November 16th, SPA Studios social media pages posted they had taken part in the early development of the animated movie, the first animated feature by UK-based Locksmith Animation. They’ve been sharing concept art pieces every few days that have been done by various people at their studio. They’ve been posting on their Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages.
