About The Mitchells vs The Machines on Netflix
The Mitchells vs. The Machines is an animated action-comedy about an ordinary family who finsd themselves in the middle of their biggest family challenge yet: saving the world from the robot apocalypse. No big deal, right?
It all starts when creative outsider Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams and is eager to leave home and find “her people.” The production still below gives you a good idea of her and her charatcer.
Unfortunately for Katie, her nature-loving dad insists on having the whole family drive her to school and bond during one last totally-not-awkward-or-forced road trip. But just when things can’t get any worse, the family suddenly finds itself in the middle of the robot uprising!
Everything from smart phones, to roombas, to evil Furbys are employed to capture every human on the planet. Now it’s up to the Mitchells, including upbeat mom Linda, quirky little brother Aaron, their squishy pug Monchi, and two friendly, but simple-minded robots to save humanity.
