It's certainly not often that girls (or boys) of color are at the center of 3D animated feature films set in the future, produced by Hollywood movie studios.

Here's the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation's "Home," a 3D computer-animated feature film set in the future, which is based on Adam Rex's children's book "The True Meaning of Smekday," and stars Rihanna (providing the voice for the starring character - an enterprising girl named Tip), Jennifer Lopez, Jim Parsons, and Steve Martin.

Tim Johnson is directing the film which is described as a post-apocalyptic-alien-invasion-buddy-comedy, with a synopsis that reads:

When Earth is taken over by the overly-confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated, while the Boov get busy efficiently reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, (Rihanna) manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov by the name of Oh (Jim Parsons). Equally stubborn and set in their ways, these two fugitives realize there’s a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime. Good thing they have a flying car.

Jennifer Lopez voices Tip's mother and Steve Martin does the same for Captain Smek, the leader of the Boov race.

Chris Jenkins and Suzanne Buirgy are the producers of the film, adapted by Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember. 

In addition to her starring voice role, Rihanna will also reportedly record a concept album featuring original songs from the film.

“Home” will be released March 27, 2015 via Fox.
