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.

Notes:

? Berkeley Breathed, a Pulitzer-Prize winner for his comic strip ?Bloom County,? is the author and illustrator of the book ?Mars Needs Moms.? The story was inspired by a particular moment of disagreement that took place between his son Milo and his wife.

? Producer Robert Zemeckis, who wrote, directed and produced ?Disney?s A Christmas Carol? and ?The Polar Express,? is a pioneer in performance-capture filmmaking. The process digitally captures the performances of the actors with computerized cameras in a full 360 degrees, allowing actors like Jim Carrey and Tom Hanks to play several roles of varying ages in one film, and for 36-year-old Seth Green to portray a 9-year-old.
