ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to the cast and crew of Mars Needs Moms, now playing in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters. Directed by Simons Wells, the animated comedy adventure is based on the Berkeley Breathed book and features the voices of Dan Fogler, Elisabeth Harnois, Mindy Sterling, Kevin Cahoon and Joan Cusack.
In the film, nine-year-old Milo 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 that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader (Sterling). With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble (Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki (Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom—in more ways than one.
