Walt Disney Studios has released the following clip from the beginning of the ImageMovers Digital film, Mars Needs Moms, based on the same-title book by famed cartoonist Berkeley Breathed.
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 rocket into theaters nationwide on March 11, 2011. For more information on the film including tons of backstage photos and concept art, follow this live bookmark.
