The Poster for Mars Needs Moms Debuts

ON

Walt Disney Pictures has debuted the first poster for Mars Needs Moms, the animated comedy adventure based on the 2007 children’s book by Berkeley Breathed (best known for his long-running comic strip “Bloom County”).

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on March 11, the Simon Wells-directed film is the story of nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green), who 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 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.
