Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez are joining Jim Parsons and Rihanna in Home, the DreamWorks Animation feature formerly known as Happy Smekday!
The adaptation of the Adam Rex book The True Meaning of Smekday is slated for a release in November 2014.

But one resourceful girl (Rihanna) manages to escape and finds herself teamed up with a banished alien named Oh (Parsons). The two fugitives find themselves on a postapocalyptic road trip with intergalactic stakes.
Martin will voice the role of the very brave and never-wrong leader Captain Smek, while Lopez will play the girl’s mother.

Chris Jenkins (Rio, Surf’s Up) and Suzanne Buirgy (Kung Fu Panda 2) are producing. Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember (Get Smart) are currently writing the screenplay.
