7 Flares 7 Flares ×

smekdayDream­Works Ani­ma­tion has added two hot names to the voice cast of next year’s Home. Look for come­dian Steve Mar­tin to take on Cap­tain Smek, the leader of the alien race known as Boov. Jen­nifer Lopez is also mov­ing Home, play­ing the teenage girl Tip’s mother. Lopez and Mar­tin join the exist­ing cast of “The Big Bang The­ory” star Jim Par­sons as the alien Oh and singer Rihanna as Tip, the teenage girl.

Home- orig­i­nally titled Happy Smek­day!- tells the story of an alien race that invades Earth and uses it as a hide­out from their mor­tal enemy. This an overly opti­mistic species con­vinced they’re doing humans a big favor by relo­cat­ing them. When one lowly alien acci­den­tally noti­fies the ene­mies of his where­abouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl. The two become unlikely bud­dies and embark on a com­i­cal globe-trotting adven­ture to right his wrongs, in which our alien hero learns what it really means to be human.

This film reunites Lopez with Tim John­son, the direc­tor of her first ani­mated ven­ture and also a Dream­Works ani­mated film– Antz. Home will be the third of three feature-length ani­mated films released by Dream­Works next year. Also look for Me and My Shadow and sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2. Dream­Works will hit three films this year, too, with the already released The Croods and Turbo, and November’s Mr. Peabody & Sher­man.
