The first image we saw from Disney's animated Mars Needs Mom feature was a bit terrifying. But today's trailer is all heart, except for the part where aliens sedate and kidnap a small boy's mom. Watch it now!
The more we see of this adaption of Berkeley Breathed's kids book, the more we're starting to like it. Looks like a lovely family movie — unless your mom has been abducted by aliens, then this would just be traumatic. Here are a few stills for a closer look:
Take out the trash, eat your broccoli-who needs moms, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she's nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. Produced by the team behind "Disney's A Christmas Carol" and "The Polar Express," "Mars Needs Moms" showcases Milo's quest to save his mom-a wild adventure in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader (Mindy Sterling). With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble (Dan Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom-in more ways than one.
Mars Needs Moms will be in theaters March 11, 2011.
