Filmmakers' commentary

Never Trust a Furby

"The Mitchells vs The Machines" stars the voices of Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Beck Bennett, Fred Armisen, Eric Andre, and Oscar winner Olivia Colman. This film was one of the sweetest of the year so far, and it has the very best pug. That has to give it at least another 10 points, right? Plus, as someone who actually had my Furby giggle at me in the middle of the night from my closet (true story), I probably appreciate this movie more than most. The film also knows what technological message it means to send, something that certain other animated films (looking at you, "Ron's Gone Wrong") don't quite have down. 

"The Mitchells vs The Machines" will be released on Blu-ray, digital, and DVD on December 14, 2021. Excuse me while I take a moment to go praise my washing machine so it doesn't decide to kill me in my sleep.
