Plot Summary
When strange objects appear in the sky above the peaceful world of Terra, some of the inhabitants believe the gods have come to visit. Instead, human invaders swoop down and kidnap a number of Terrareans, including Mala's (Evan Rachel Wood) father. Mala saves a downed pilot, Jim Stanton (Luke Wilson), hoping he'll help her find her father. While certain Earthlings plot to take control of Terra, Mala and Stanton realize that the fates of both their peoples hinge on the choices they make.

  • The plot is an obvious parable for modern dilemmas, yet in the hands of the film's creators, and with their graceful use of 3-D, viewers feel as if they're watching how the future might actually unfold, glimpsing a conflict that's destined to take place 300 years from now. show more

  • It's an unconventional premise: that aliens live in harmony and humans are the warmonger invaders. But it's not that simple. show more

  • The animation is splendid on what must have been, since this is not a studio film, a modest budget. show more
