Watch New Trailer for 3D Animated Post-Apocalyptic Adventure 'Home' + Cast Chat

Here’s a new trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s “Home,” a 3D computer-animated feature film set in the future, which is based on Adam Rex’s children’s book “The True Meaning of Smekday,” and stars Rihanna (providing the voice for the starring character – an enterprising girl named Tip), Jennifer Lopez, Jim Parsons, and Steve Martin.

Tim Johnson is director of the film which is described as a post-apocalyptic-alien-invasion-buddy-comedy, with a synopsis that reads: “When Earth is taken over by the overly-confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated, while the Boov get busy efficiently reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, (Rihanna) manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov by the name of Oh (Jim Parsons). Equally stubborn and set in their ways, these two fugitives realize there’s a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime. Good thing they have a flying car.”
Jennifer Lopez voices Tip’s mother and Steve Martin does the same for Captain Smek, the leader of the Boov race.

In addition to her starring voice role, Rihanna will also reportedly record a concept album featuring original songs from the film.

20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation have released a new trailer for the highly anticipated film, as well as a video of stars Rihanna and Jim Parsons interviewing each other in an exclusive cast chat – both videos embedded below.

Also, a release date has been sent for March 27, 2015. 

The trailer is below, followed by the convo between Rihanna and Jim Parson:
