Teaser Poster for Disney's Animated 'Mars Needs Moms!' Lands
Mom needs a little space. Disney has unveiled the first teaser poster via Yahoo for their upcoming animated movie Mars Needs Moms!, the very last production from Zemeckis' ImageMovers Digital. The movie is an animated adventure comedy in 3D based on a 2007 children's book by Berkeley Breathed about a young boy named Milo, voiced by Seth Green. Milo 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." So he goes on an adventure with a spaceship to the planet to find her. I'm sure an actual trailer for this will follow shortly, so stay tuned!
A boy named Milo gains a deeper appreciation for his mom after Martians land on Earth and take her.
Mars Needs Moms! is directed by British filmmaker Simon Wells, great grand-son of H.G. Wells, who has directed films like An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story, Balto, The Prince of Egypt and The Time Machine, but its been a while since he last directed. The screenplay was co-written by Simon and presumable his wife, Wendy Wells. It's based on Berkeley Breathed's book of the same name. This was produced at ImageMovers and is being released by Disney in 3D on March 11th, 2011 next year.

Expect a trailer to come with either Megamind or Tangled. Great looking poster, though.

Where's the CE3K rip-off? Because the poster for this movie looks similar to the iconic shot in Spielberg's movie? Perhaps it was intentional given the theme?
