Walt Disney Studios has released a third trailer for its upcoming mocap film, Mars Needs Moms, from ImageMovers Digital and adapted from the same-titled children’s book by Berkeley Breathed.
Featuring quite a bit of new animation, the trailer also plays host to an interesting title track that plays throughout the trailer which seems to be a fairly campy rap (using the term very loosely) , featuring lyrics such as:
Can’t even tell
Is that a boy or a girl?
They look so nasty,
make a robot hurl!
In Mars Needs Moms, nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (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 released in theaters nationwide on March 11, 2011.
