Academy Award winning director Chris Wedge ("Bunny," "Ice Age") brings his innovative filmmaking magic to "Robots," taking the animated feature film genre to a new, exciting level. For the first time ever, an animated feature presents a unique, totally imagined world – a wondrously clanky universe populated solely by mechanical beings. And never has a cast of this caliber -- encompassing no less than five Oscar winners, as well as Emmy and Tony honorees -- been brought together for an animated feature. In the film you'll meet memorable 'bots Rodney Copperbottom (Ewan McGregor), a young genius inventor who dreams of making the world a better place; Cappy (Halle Berry), a beautiful executive 'bot with whom Rodney is instantly smitten; the nefarious corporate tyrant Ratchet (Greg Kinnear) who locks horns with Rodney; Bigweld (Mel Brooks), a master inventor who has lost his way; and a group of misfit ‘bots known as the Rusties, led by Fender (Robin Williams) and Piper Pinwheeler (Amanda Bynes).
