I'm really excited about this new movie coming out. It's animated and 3-D and will be in theaters in May. The reason it catches my attention so much is because of its green-living and peace theme. Without being 'in your face' about it, it is a really great storyline with great messages throughout. It's also visually stunning!

Here is the trailer: http://www.battleforterra.com
And also, here is info on the story:

The story takes place on Terra, a planet of tranquility and a civilization that honors nature and celebrates life. Terrians, the inhabitants of the world, float in the sky and live a peaceful agrarian life in a city of vines above the cloud layers. Mala (Evan Rachel Wood), a strong-willed and charming teenage Terrian girl, and her pal, Senn (Justin Long), cruise the skies (sharing the clouds with graceful blue whale-like creatures) in their agile soaring vehicles enjoying the freedom they presently possess.

On another planet, namely Earth, natural resources have been depleted and the environment made uninhabitable. An all out battle has been waged between Earth’s colonized neighboring planets, and the result has been catastrophic. The last known survivors of Earth now embark on a desperate mission to colonize a world which will be suitable to human life.  Terra has been discovered to be Human’s last hope in the face of extinction.

With their Terraformer designed to convert an alien atmosphere to an oxygenated one suitable to habitation, the humans charge forward to conquer Terra. In the procedure, the air becomes unsuitable for the Terrians who will perish in this conversion process. When the initial invasion takes place, Mala’s father, Roven (Dennis Quaid), is taken hostage in the melee.

Desperate to rescue her father, the resourceful Mala encounters an Earth Force pilot named Jim (Luke Wilson) who crashed down on the surface.  Curious about the invader, Mala harbors him in her dwelling.  She also encounters Giddy (David Cross), a loveable robot like creature.  Giddy is Jim’s machine counterpart and teaches Mala English. Mala cares for Jim’s wounds and the two form a likeable bond.  Forged by a deal to help get her father back, they  devise a plan to help their respective peoples, and both become heroes in the process.
