'Escape from Planet Earth' exclusive: Meet Kip Supernova, (alien) boy hero


In Escape from Planet Earth, a family of daring intergalactic adventurers find themselves trapped on a famously dangerous alien world. The twist: The family is from a far-away orb called Baab… and the world that lures them in is none other than Earth.

The youngest of these interplanetary crimefighters is Kip Supernova (Jonathan Morgan Heit, of Jake and the Neverland Pirates), a 9-year-old Baabian who aspires to be just like his butt-kicking Uncle Scorch (Brendan Fraser). When Scorch and Kip’s dad, brainy Gary (Rob Corddry), are both marooned in Earth’s Area 51, it’s up to Kip to save the day — using  moves he may or may not have learned from a certain future Jedi. Can the alien kid handle his first major mission? Check out the exclusive video below to find out:


'Escape from Planet Earth' new posters revealed -- EXCLUSIVE

It’s not quite the usual high fashion we’re used to seeing actress Jessica Alba in, but here she is in the first of seven character posters for her new 3D animated movie out next month, Escape from Planet Earth. Alba is joined by Brendan Fraser, Rob Corddry, James Gandolfini, and Sarah Jessica Parker in this alien-out-of-water tale from Cal Brunker (Despicable Me) out Feb. 14.

Alba’s  Lena Thackleman is the head of BASA, the Baabian Aeronautics and Space Administration, which takes care of problems across the galaxy and stresses her out. But she’s been working on a very secret project — one which will change Baab, and everyone on it.

Click through for two other new posters featuring Corddry’s character, Gary, and Jonathan Morgan Heit’s character, Kip. Look for more posters to come on Moviefone.com.
