After making her official film debut in the film Battleship , Rihanna has decided to expand her acting chops into animation.
The pop star and fashion icon stars in Dreamworks’ upcoming 3D computer-animated comedy film Home , which is scheduled to be released on March 27, 2015.
Based on the 2007 Adam Rex ‘s children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday , it follows an overly optimistic, alien race named Boov, led by Captain Smek, who invades Earth to hide from their mortal enemy and make it a new home.
Convinced they are doing a favor, they begin to relocate the human race, but one resourceful girl, Tip (played by Rihanna), manages to avoid capture.
When on the run, she is accompanied by a banished Boov, named Oh, who has accidentally notified the enemies of his whereabouts.
In addition to her voice role, Rihanna and her team created a concept album for the film, which will feature 12 original songs. Take a look at the first trailer below:
