Short film “ALMOST HOME” by DreamWorks Animation introduces the audience to a whole new universe of cinematic fun…
They are an alien race, the Boovs: alongside with their charismatic leader, Smek (Steve Martin), the clumsy group creatures from the space are reaching Earth after a long, unsuccessful quest all over the galaxy to find the perfect planet to take over.
This is the plot of HOME, the new animation feature by DreamWorks Animation coming out later next winter. The short film serves as a introduction of the charachters since they are all new to the audience and to explain how they eventually ended up on our planet. The story will develop around an unlikely friendship between a little girl and one of the aliens.
Animation features brilliant and bright colors, wonderful views of the galaxy and spectacular special effects. Other voice talents includes Rihanna. Jennifer Lopez and the director is the same of “Over the hedge” (I can find a lot of similarities with that movie in the plot so far).
