The acclaimed animated movie Ron’s Gone Wrong is now available in cinemas, but naturally many fans are wondering when they’ll be able to watch the movie from the comfort of their own homes on Disney Plus.


There’s good news for fans – Ron's Gone Wrong is set to arrive on streaming platforms next month, just in time for Christmas.

Coming to our screens courtesy of brand new studio Locksmith Animation, the film centres around a defective robot with a mind of its own, and explores how artificial intelligence is impacting children’s real-life relationships.

Directed by Sarah Smith and Jean-Philippe Vine, the film stars Jack Dylan Grazer, Zach Galifianakis, Olivia Colman, Ed Helms, Justice Smith, Rob Delaney, Thomas Barbusca, Kylie Cantrall, Marcus Scribner and Ricardo Hurtado.

Talking about voicing the titular character Ron the robot, Galifianakis (The Hangover) told Sky News: "They didn't want me to go too expressive because it just hasn't been programmed that way yet. So it was tricky - I mean, not too tricky, but it's one of those things that it took me a while to figure out.

"One of the producers, writers, directors would say, 'Hey, that's a little too human', which is, by the way, a direction I've never gotten!"
