Sony Pictures Animation’s ‘Connected’ Also Moves Out Of The Immediate Fall Schedule

BREAKING: Don’t count on Sony Animation’s Lord & Miller movie Connected for this fall. The feature joins a number of other features fleeing the immediate fall calendar or delaying until later in the year, or even in 2021. Connected, last scheduled for Oct. 23, is now being moved by the studio to an unset future date this year.

Studios saw what Tenet‘s (and other films’) grosses were like without New York and Los Angeles, and both cities are required to be part of a tentpole’s marketing blitz; hence the meltdown of the immediate theatrical fall schedule. Connected joins Wonder Woman 1984 which was recently delayed from Oct. 2 to Christmas Day, STX’s Greenland, which moved to a TBD 4Q date after stepping off of its Sept. 25 release, and Universal/MGM’s Candyman which jumped from Oct. 16 to next year TBD as notable delayed releases. Also, we’re waiting to see where Disney pushes Black Widow and Soul on the calendar.

Connected is directed by Michael Rianda and co-directed by Jeff Rowe and follows Katie Mitchell (Abbi Jacobson) who is accepted into the film school of her dreams. Her whole family drives Katie to school together when their plans are interrupted by a tech uprising, and the entire family works together to save the world. Producers are Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Kurt Albrecht. Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre and Olivia Colman also star as the voice cast.
