The Mitchells vs. The Machines centers on 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!

Mitchell, Danny McBride (Despicable Me, The Angry Birds Movie) as
