DreamWorks Animation is known for films like “How to Train Your Dragon”, “Shrek”, “Shark Tale”, “Flushed Away”, and “The Croods”. And on Nov. 26, the animation studio will release its 30th animated film, “Home”.
The intergalactic adventure revolves around an overly optimistic (yet inept) alien race called the Boov, who invade Earth in an attempt to escape their mortal enemy, hoping to make this hiding spot their new home. But one resourceful girl named Tip (Rihanna) escapes the Boov’s relocation efforts and teams up with a banished Boov named Oh (Jim Parsons) to save the race after he accidentally clues the bad guys into the Boov’s whereabouts.
To introduce the world to the new alien race, BuzzFeed presents an exclusive short film from DreamWorks Animation called “Almost Home”, which features the voice of Steve Martin, who also stars in the full-length feature film, along with Rihanna, Parsons, and Jennifer Lopez.
Back in December 2012, Rihanna tweeted:
Had a blast today! So weird recording for animation, but I get to keep my accent! AND it’s PG, which mom should be happy about! Brrrap!!
Rihanna will also create a concept album based on the animated film. DreamWorks Animation chief Jeffrey Katzenberg announced the news during the company’s earnings conference last month. She will also perform new songs in the movie.
