Mars Needs Moms is an interesting project. It’s Disney’s first attempt at a non-Pixar computer-animated sci-fi adventure since the not very good Meet the Robinsons in 2007. As such it represents a gamble for the House of Mouse. Today they released the first trailer for the film, alongside a few pictures highlighting the rather nice looking animation.
Based on the book by Berkeley Breathed the movie revolves around a young boy who goes to rescue his nagging mother after she’s abducted by Martians. It seems that those pesky Martians are in need of some parental care of the motherly variety.
The movie features the voices of Seth Green, Dan Fogler, Elisabeth Harnois, Mindy Sterling, and Joan Cusack.
Mars Needs Moms will invade US cinemas March 11th, with Ireland getting it April 8th.
