Wild Robot Trailer: Lupita Nyong'o Voices Lonely Robot Befriending Fox Pedro Pascal

DreamWorks' "The Wild Robot" film, starring Lupita Nyong'o, set for September 20, 2024 release. Star-studded cast, Miyazaki's return, Oscars buzz.

DreamWorks Animation's highly anticipated film "The Wild Robot," adapted from Peter Brown's popular YA novels, is set to hit theaters on September 20, 2024. The film features the talented Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the protagonist, ROZZUM unit 7134, also known as Roz.

Just like in the novel trilogy, the story follows Roz, a robot who finds herself stranded on a deserted island and must navigate the challenges of her new environment. She forms bonds with the island's animals and takes on the role of a nurturing parent to an orphaned gosling named Kit Connor. Roz's companions include the clever fox Fink, the resourceful opossum Pinktail, and the wise goose Longneck, voiced by Pascal, Catherine O'Hara, and Bill Nighy respectively. However, Roz's world is turned upside down when she encounters another robot, Vontra, portrayed by Stephanie Hsu.

The film's tagline, "Sometimes to survive, we must become more than we were programmed to be," encapsulates the central theme of the movie. With a stellar voice cast that includes Mark Hamill, Matt Berry, and Ving Rhames, and helmed by the acclaimed filmmaker Chris Sanders, known for his work on "How to Train Your Dragon," "The Wild Robot" promises to be a captivating cinematic experience. The film is produced by Jeff Hermann.

In the realm of animated films, there has been a resurgence of high-quality content, exemplified by the return of legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki with his latest project, "The Boy and the Heron." The star-studded cast of Miyazaki's film, featuring Christian Bale, Florence Pugh, and Robert Pattinson, rivals that of "The Wild Robot." Mark Hamill, a versatile voice actor, is also part of Miyazaki's project.

As the 2024 Oscars approach, "The Wild Robot" faces tough competition in the Best Animated Feature category, including titles like "Robot Dreams," "Nimona," "Elemental," and "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse." The Academy has announced changes to the voting process for future awards, separating the Short Films and Feature Animation Branches.

To get a taste of what "The Wild Robot" has in store, check out the trailer for Universal's upcoming film. With its compelling story, talented voice cast, and visually stunning animation, "The Wild Robot" is poised to be a standout film in the world of animated cinema.
