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.

Written and directed by Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon, The Croods, Disney’s Lilo & Stitch), the movie stars Lupita Nyong’o (The Black Panther franchise) as robot Roz; Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us) as fox Fink; Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek) as opossum Pinktail; Bill Nighy (Living) as goose Longneck; Kit Connor (Heartstopper) as gosling Brightbill and Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All at Once) as Vontra, a robot that will intersect with Roz’s life on the island.

The film also features the voices of Mark Hamill (The Boy and the Heron), Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows) and Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible).

Peter Brown’s The Wild Robot, an illustrated middle-grade novel first published in 2016 went to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. The book has since inspired a trilogy that now includes The Wild Robot Escapes and The Wild Robot Protects.

The Wild Robot will be in cinemas on 20 September.
