"Someone Please Discover a Planet I Can Discover:" Watch The New Short Film 'ALMOST HOME' In Anticipation Of The Animated Film 'HOME'

Apparently I'm in the minority with my adoration of the film Monsters University, so I will proudly stand along in the corner with it. But if you're like me and get a kick out of alien animation, you might want to keep the upcoming film HOME on your radar. In anticipation of the movie, which hits theaters November 26th, 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation have just released the new short film, Almost Home which you can watch below.

Directed by Tim Johnson (Antz) Featuring the voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez, HOME follows a rowdy community of aliens on a mission to find a new safe place away from their enemies. More on the film below:

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.

Watch the trailer:

I know some of you may be suffering from "Rihanna fatigue" caused by the epic flop Battleship, but perhaps animation may be a better fit for her? The trailer is cute and features the always hilarious Steve Martin. I'm game. What about you?
