Back in February a some of our reader Cool Moms went with us to the advance screening of Disney’s animated film Mars Needs Moms, a film about 9-year old Milo and his daring rescue mission to save his mom from Martians. He sets out on an adventure to bring her back home to earth after she’s kidnapped by Martians seeking mothers for their own planet. He joins forces with Gribble, a tech-savvy earthman, and Ki, a rebel Martian girl, to find his mother, even if he has to stow away on a spaceship, take on an entire alien nation, or worst of all, eat his broccoli. This comedy adventure 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.
The release date for the DVD of the movie is August 9, and to mark the date we would like one of you to win a Blu-Ray / DVD combo with us.
