Mars Needs Moms – March 11th

While Gnomeo and Juliet are busy filling seats in theaters with a close second place over the weekend, another Disney funded animation project looms near. Mars Needs Mom will launch from a theater near you beginning March 11th. It features the weird cross between animation and motion capture technology that Robert Zemeckis pioneered for Disney.

I just learned that one of my favorite cartoonists 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.

Disney recently released a new trailer for the film with a new song ‘Stay Cool’. Lyrics are below the jump if you want to sing along:

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.

MARS NEED MOMS: “Stay Cool” Lyrics

YO, THERE COULD BE LIFE UP ON THE MOON
OR SOME PLANET OR ANOTHER
BUT WHAT KIND OF ALIENS
WOULD KIDNAP YOUR MOTHER?

MARS NEEDS MOMS
MARS NEEDS MOMS

CAN’T EVEN TELL
IS THAT A BOY OR A GIRL?
THEY LOOK SO NASTY
MAKE A ROBOT HURL.

NOW SING IT…
MARS NEEDS MOMS

NOW HE’S SEEING ALL THE SIGHTS
KICKING BUTT
TAKING COVER
BUT HE’LL FIGHT THE ALIENS
TO GET BACK HIS MOTHER!

MARS NEEDS MOMS
MARS NEEDS
MARS NEEDS MOMS

YOU GOTTA STAY COOL
NOT MANIC
DON’T PANIC
JUST STAY CALM

MARS NEEDS
MARS NEEDS
MARS NEEDS
MARS NEEDS MOMS!
