Animated features just have a knack of making you feel oh-so-good after watching them. Some are hilarious (Kung Fu Panda, Shrek), some are heart-warming (Up, Finding Nemo), while others are just a joy to watch (Toy Story 1, 2, 3). Here are some upcoming films that are bound to bring a smile to your face. And for those of you who still aren’t big fans of animation, we’ll let the trailers do the talking.

Mars Needs Moms
A Disney-3D film about a nine-year-old boy named Milo (Seth Green) who gains a deeper appreciation for his mom (Joan Cusack) after Martians come to Earth to take her away. He stows away in an alien spacecraft bound for Mars in a bid to bring her safely back to Earth. What is not to love about this? Seth Green is always a hoot and with him in the title-role, we should be duly entertained. Bonus points for casting Joan Cusack as the Mom and Dan Fogler (Kungfu Panda) as the newfound friend and ally.
