WHY WE PICKED IT: This animated sci-fi story features an earnest environmental message and ridiculously packed all-star cast.
The peaceful residents of Terra are facing an attack from outer space, as aliens in desperate search of a new home threaten to destroy all life on their planet to claim it as their own. But this time, the aliens are the humans, fleeing a destroyed Earth and its failed colonies. When one of them, fighter pilot Jim Stanton (Luke Wilson), crash lands on the previously tranquil planet, he is rescued by rebellious Terrarian teenager, Mala (Evan Rachel Wood), and an intergalactic friendship begins that will impact the fate of both species.
