 Home is a 2015 American 3D computer-animated buddy comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is based on Adam Rex’s 2007 children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday and stars Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Steve Martin. Tim Johnson is the director of the film, Chris Jenkins and Suzanne Buirgy are its producers, and the adaptation is by Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember. The story takes place on planet Earth, where an alien race called the Boov invades, a teenage girl named Tip manages to avoid capture and goes on the run.

The film was released in theaters on March 27, 2015. Home was promoted with the release of a four-minute short film, titled Almost Home, and premiered at the Boulder International Film Festival on March 7, 2015. Besides lending her voice to the film, Rihanna also created a concept album of the same name — the soundtrack also includes guest vocals from Jennifer Lopez among others. The soundtrack was supported by two singles — “Towards the Sun” and “Feel the Light” — and was met with moderate success on music charts.
