Mum needs a little space.
Take out the trash, eat your broccoli - who needs mums, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mum (Joan Cusack) when she's zapped away by Martians! For these butt-ugly aliens, parental discipline is the most sought-after power in the universe. Produced by the team behind 'Disney's A Christmas Carol' and 'The Polar Express', 'Mars Needs Mums' showcases a young boy's epic quest to save his mum on a thrilling trip to another world in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D that sees Milo 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 hilarious gadget-freak Gribble (Dan Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), Milo will turn Mars upside down to find his way back to his mum - in more ways than one.
