About Mars Needs Moms:

"Take out the trash, eat your broccoli"—who needs moms, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) 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" chronicles 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 its 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.

The film is directed by Simon Wells and produced by Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Steve Starkey, and Steven Boyd. Simon Wells and Wendy Wells wrote the screenplay, based on the book by Berkeley Breathed.
