Starring Seth Green, Joan Cusack, Dan Fogler

Milo (voiced by funny man Seth Green) is just beginning summer and while he has fun and adventure planned, his mother (voiced by Joan Cusack) has other ideas – namely chores, weeding the garden, oh and don’t forget the all important eating his greens. When Milo tints his sister’s face purple, his mother sees no humour in it and orders him up to his room. After an argument with his mother in which Milo says “I don’t see what’s so special about mothers!” he’s faced with the reality that there’s a whole lot special about them, especially his when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young.  Milo embarks on a quest to save his mom – a wild adventure that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader. With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble (Kung Fu Panda’s, Dan Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki, Milo just might find his way back to his mom – in more ways than one.

The film is based on a children’s picture book by Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Berkeley “Berke” Breathed, author of the comic strip Bloom County.
