Almost Home

This fall, DreamWorks Animation has their film Home hitting theaters. Formerly known as Happy Smekday!, the film is an adaptation of Adam Rex's children's book, The True Meaning of Smekday. The film follows an alien race invading Earth as their new home to hide form a mortal enemy. But when one lowly alien (Jim Parsons) accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a stubborn teenage girl (Rihanna) to right all of his wrongs. Now an animated short film introduces us to the alien characters trying to find a new home planet, including the leader voiced by Steve Martin. Watch!

Here's the DreamWorks Animation short film Almost Home from the studio's YouTube:

Home is directed by Tim Johnson (Shrek, Over the Hedge) and written by Tom J. Astle & Matt Ember (Get Smart, Epic). An overly optimistic, yet inept, alien race named Boov, led by Captain Smek (Steve Martin), invades Earth to hide from their mortal enemy and make it a new home. Convinced they are doing a favor, they begin to relocate the human race. But one resourceful girl named Tip (Rihanna), manages to avoid capture, accompanied by a banished Boov named Oh (Jim Parsons), who has accidentally notified the enemies of his whereabouts. Fox releases the DreamWorks Animation film on November 26th this fall.

    Why does the animation look so wonky and bad?

    I saw this short in front of Mr. Peabody & Sherman this weekend. I'm excited to see that it's going to be a full length film.
