Disney has released the first movie poster and the official synopsis of its latest 3-D animated adventure movie, Mars Needs Moms. Directed by Simon Wells (The Time Machine), it's an adaptation of the book of the same name by Berkeley Breathed of Bloom County fame.
The movie — produced by Robert Zemeckis, the writer, director, and producer of Disney's The Polar Express and A Christmas Carol — utilizes the same motion-capture technology used to help animate the performances of Tom Hanks and Jim Carrey in those movies. Here's the official 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. Milo embarks on a quest to save his mom — a wild adventure that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet, and taking on the alien nation and their leader. 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.
