In 20th Century Studios’ upcoming film Ron’s Gone Wrong, all of the children in the show get the toy and gadget of the century called the B Bot.

The animated comedy adventure follows a socially awkward middle-schooler named Barney who might finally get a friend when his dad bought him the highly anticipated B Bot.

Barney named his “Best Friend out of the Box” Ron. Unfortunately for Barney, Ron isn’t like the other B Bots because it’s ‘socially awkward’ in a robot way.
