Wow, Disney movies are coming thick and fast! I've barely had time to stop raving about Gnomeo & Juliet, and now Mars Needs Moms is blasting into theaters (in 3D, no less!) on March 11. Finally, there are beings that appreciate moms! Sad that we had to go to another planet to find them, but meh, that's life :) The movie features the voices of two of my favorite comic actors, Seth Green and Joan Cusack, and I can't wait to see it. I've been invited to an advanced screening this weekend, so watch out for a Mars Needs Moms movie review on March 11!
Here's the synopsis:
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.
And here's the trailer:
