Does the title Mars Needs Moms ring a bell for you? It’s the name of a new Disney animated film and it should be pretty self-explanatory. The film is directed by Simon Wells and is scheduled to hit theaters on March 11, 2011. The studio has released the first trailer for the space-family adventure and it’s interesting to say the least. Check it out for yourself…

Official Synopsis:

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” showcases 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 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.

Did they choose the perfect actress to voice the mom in this film or what? There’s something about Joan Cusack that screams suburban housewife who drives a mini-fan. The rest of the cast is an interesting mix. We haven’t seen or heard Elisabeth Harnois in anything lately so it’s good to see her getting work.

Mars Needs Moms will open in theaters everywhere on March 11.
