Disney Blu-ray and DVD Needs Mars Needs Moms

With Mother’s Day just wrapping up, it’s easy to see how important our moms or mom figures (shout outs to those out there with Aunts or Grandmas!!) are to us on a daily basis. Sure, ok, we’re not always looking forward to the regular chores, cleaning our room, weekly phone calls, or any of the other “required” parts to our kid-contracts, but… all of that would become a lot less important if your mom was nabbed by Martians. That’s what Milo is faced with, racing against time (and oxygen!) to get to Mars and return his Mom back to earth, all in Disney’s CG epic, Mars Needs Moms. The box office hit comes home to DVD, Blu-ray, and Disney Blu-ray 3D this August 9th – read on for more details in the official press release.
