Wrap just reported that Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin have joined Jim Parsons and Rihanna in the voice cast for DreamWorks Animation’s Home (Previously “Happy Smekday!”).
20th Century Fox will distribute the movie, the film is based on the critically-acclaimed book “The True Meaning of Smekday,” by Adam Rex. When the galaxy’s most annoyingly optimistic alien finds himself on the run from his own alien race, he’s forced to team up with a fiercely stubborn teenage girl. Together they become the most unlikely fugitives ever to save the planet.
Wrap Says: “Martin will voice Captain Smek, leader of the overly optimistic alien race known as the Boov, who take over Earth and begin to relocate the human race — convinced they’re doing them a big favor. Rihanna will voice a resourceful girl who avoids capture and unwittingly becomes the accomplice of a banished Boov (Parsons). Lopez will play the girl’s mother.”
