Ron’s Gone Wrong Trailer Takes the Friendship Code to the Next Level

20th Century Studios has dropped a brand new trailer for the upcoming coming-of-age animated film Ron’s Gone Wrong, starring Zach Galifianakis (Missing Link) and Jack Dylan Grazer (Luca). The film is currently scheduled to make its debut in theaters on Friday, October 22, which pits it against three highly-anticipated ensemble films in the form of Dune, The French Dispatch, and The Harder They Fall.

The new Ron’s Gone Wrong trailer, which you can check out below along with the new poster, features a middle-schooler named Barney as he finally gets the B-Bot that he’s been dreaming of. However, his ticket to finally having a social life turns out to be defective as Ron, his new best friend, causes him unintentional dilemmas due to missing codes.
