Take out the trash, eat your broccoliâ€”who needs moms, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when sheâ€™s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. Produced by the team behind â€œDisneyâ€™s A Christmas Carolâ€ and â€œThe Polar Express,â€ â€œMars Needs Momsâ€ showcases Miloâ€™s quest to save his momâ€”a wild adventure in Disney Digital 3Dâ„¢ and IMAXÂ® 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 momâ€”in more ways than one.
