The trailer for The Wild Robot, an animated sci-fi film based on Peter Brown’s bestselling illustrated novels, is out.

Directed by Chris Sanders, The Wild Robot follows the adventures of Roz, a futuristic robot stranded on a deserted island teeming with animals. To survive, Roz builds relationships with these vulnerable creatures of nature, eventually adopting an orphaned gosling.

Roz, or Rozzum 7134, is voiced by actor Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave, Black Panther). Pedro Pascal has voiced the character Fink, a fox. The voice cast also features Catherine O’Hara (as an opossum named Pinktail), Bill Nighy (as the goose Longneck) , Kit Connor, Stephanie Hsu, Mark Hamill, Matt Berry, and Ving Rhames.

“The epic adventure follows the journey of a robot—ROZZUM unit 7134, “Roz” for short — that is shipwrecked on an uninhabited island and must learn to adapt to the harsh surroundings, gradually building relationships with the animals on the island and becoming the adoptive parent of an orphaned gosling,” reads a synopsis.

Produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures, The Wild Robot will release in theatres on September 20, 2024.
