The Mitchells Vs. The Machines is an original animated comedy from producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street). 

The Mitchells are a dysfunctional but loving family whose road trip is interrupted by a tech uprising that threatens mankind: all around the world, the electronic devices people love -- from phones, to self-driving cars, to a sleek new line of personal robots -- turn on humanity. With the help of two malfunctioning robots and the family's delightfully overweight pug, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world. 

The Mitchells Vs. The Machines is directed by Mike Rianda who wrote the screenplay with co-director Jeff Rowe; Phil Lord and Christopher Miller produce along with Kurt Albrecht.
