DNEG Animation was the sole digital production partner on the movie and produced 100 minutes of animation.

The film revolves around Barney, a socially awkward middle-schooler, and Ron, his robot friend.

DNEG teams worked on 1,600 shots for the film, including 168 robot character variants, over 1,900 human character variants and extensive stylised environments. It also developed a motion graphics-driven character performance system for the robot characters.
