DreamWorks Animation’s Home trailer is now online for your viewing pleasure.  The Tim Johnson-directed picture centers on the Boov, a squat race of confident little aliens who relocate Earth’s human population in order to take over the planet.  One clever little girl manages to escape and eventually crosses paths with a banished Boov named Oh.  You can probably guess where the story goes from there.  This early look at the movie – the humor, the animation style, the dialogue – is pretty much everything you’d expect from DWA’s more run-of-the-mill films, but it’s probably a safe bet that it’ll be a fine film for the family.

Featuring the voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin, and Jennifer LopezHome opens March 27, 2015.  Hit the jump to watch the Home trailer.

The first official trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Home appears below, followed by a related and previously released short film, Almost Home (via Apple):

Here’s the official synopsis for Home:

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 all Boov get busy reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip (Rihanna), manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov named Oh (Jim Parsons). The two fugitives realize there’s a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime.

    All this Dreamworks hating, sheesh. And these same haters go and fawns over How To Train Your Dragon. Dreamworks has Dragon (best animated movies bar maybe Pixar), Madagascar and Penguins of Madagascar (hilarious), Kung-fu Panda (visually stunning and awesome), and lest we forget, they kept up making great traditionally animated cartoons when Disney stopped.

    Yes they have their stinkers (like this one), but Dreamworks has some quality films under their belt.

    EDIT: The Shreks were mostly awesome, but Puss in Boots was amazing, The Croods was great, Over the Hedge wasn’t bad, and their co-produced Aardman films are brilliant. Their animated films: Prince of Egypt, Road to El Dorado, and Spirit are some of my favourite ever.

      I don’t hate Dreamworks, I just don’t care about them at all. That said, I strongly, strongly dislike Rhianna and refuse to support her in any way.

    • Joe Danger

      Anyone that says The Croods is ‘great’ immediately devalues their opinions on animated movies.

      ‘Great’? I mean, ‘great’?
      You do know there are plenty of other words you could use without resorting to hyperbole?

      ‘Great’???

      • ethomson92

        Agreed. Croods felt like a slap in the face after seeing Rise of the Guardians. It was only made worse when Rise bombed at the box-office and Croods didn’t

      • The Flobbit

        Hmm…I feel the opposite here. I though Rise of the Guardians was a complete underwhelment. I don’t think kids understood it at all…

      • The Flobbit

        Well, maybe I just like The Croods more than you. I thought it was visually stunning, lush, action-packed, and had excellent voice-acting and a good moral. Puts Ice Age to shame, thats for sure.

      • ethomson92

        Good moral, yes. But the story on Croods underwhelmed me. And yeah, Rise isn’t entirely targeted to kids, but there is no reason they shouldn’t see it.

      • The Flobbit

        The story was kind of simple, and the climax was quite complex, for a kids movie. Rise I felt, tried to be more than just a simple kids movie. It has amazing voice acting, but the visuals and humor need a lot of work. Jude Law and Alec Baldwin are standouts.

      • ethomson92

        The visuals? Maybe I’m just too biased on the subject. Box-office reports tend to do that to me with certain things. I can say this is one of Cage’s best movies in years. He’s the standout in Croods the way Law and Baldwin are in Rise

    The alien creature design is bland, unoriginal, and somewhat creepy for a kids film.

    • TrekBeatTK

      it’s actually fairly true to Adam Rex’s illustrations. Also, in the book there’s a second alien race very different from the Boov. I hope that gets into the film too.

    I can see why they didn’t keep The True Meaning of Smekday, but Home is such a generic title. No complaints about changing the name of the alien who was J-Lo in the book. The book also had the ending take place at Disneyland, which obviously they’re changing to some generic theme park. I wonder overall how close to the original it will be, a few of the bits did seem familiar.

    • TrekBeatTK

      actually, it was a generic theme park in the book that was meant to obviously parallel Disney.

      • milo

        True, they don’t say it’s Disney but make it perfectly clear that’s what’s intended. It’s in Florida and called Happy Mouse Kingdom, from what I remember of the illustrations it probably looked pretty Disney specific too, I’d be surprised if they kept any of the stuff that was Disney specific.

    • ethomson92

      Generic title might mean wider appeal

      • milo

        I can see what they’re thinking but that’s REALLY generic. There has to be some middle ground of something that gives an idea of what the movie is about between the extremes of “Smekday” and “Home”.

      • ethomson92

        True, but DreamWorks must want to play it safe on this one.

  • Marissa Evans

    Ok guys, relax. The studio’s not a federal government, they make animated movies.

    I am so… I don’t know what. I simply adore the book The True Meaning of Smekday, and immediately thought it would make a wonderful movie. Then when I found they were making one, I was excited despite the fact that it was Dreamworks (it was a perfect Disney property since there’s basically Disney World in it, and the book was published by Disney’s Hyperion books). The title was changed to “It’s Smekday” which was okay, but now it’s the terribly generic “Home” which makes some thematic sense but doesn’t AT ALL sell the movie. It’s Tangled and John Carter all over again.

    And now I finally get a trailer and… I’m disappointed. Why is his name not J-Lo? That was hilarious. And it’s hard to tell from a trailer, but are they in EUROPE?? I sure hope not. At least they kept Tip black, but she sounds 40 years old. She’s supposed to be like 12! I hate Rihanna and this is one case where celebrity stunt casting works against the movie. Just cast a young no-name black actress!

    • milo

      I assume the Europe looking stuff is the theme park. Glad they didn’t keep his name, that seemed like a lazy cheap laugh in the book. When they announced Parsons was voicing the alien that seemed like a good choice and after hearing the trailer I still feel that way. I just wish the trailer made the movie look a bit better, it’s not terrible but I’m not excited about it.
