Ron's Gone Wrong

Tackling the alienated world of social media through the medium of animation, this is The Iron Giant or E.T. for Gen Z. But with irresistible characterisation and a wonderfully witty script, British studio Locksmith and British directors Sarah Smith and JP Vine, ensure there is something for everyone.





Barney, a lonely and awkward middle-schooler, finally gets the ‘Bubble Bot’ he’s been pestering his Dad for. A walking, talking, digitally-connected device that will serve as a ready-made best friend. But when his bot-BFF Ron starts to malfunction, there is a risk he might be recalled by the manufacturer and sent to the ‘crusher’.
