Earth Farm was a planned computer-animated family science-fiction comedy disaster film produced by Universal Animation. The film was to be written and directed by William Jennings in his directorial debut, co-written by Thomas Lennon and Erica Rivinoja based on an original idea by Jennings, and produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

Plot

Steven Fischer, Marcella and their kids Nate and Kate battle aliens after Earth gets abducted by an alien named Murolg and gives it to his son as Zoe for his 13th Birthday.

Why It Was Cancelled

  • The concept and premise was found too similar to Universal's own 2010 animated feature Computeropolis 3 as well as Sony's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Result

  • The film was permanently cancelled.
  • Brandon Minez later went on to produce the fifth Computeropolis installment.
  • It will be replaced by Mechagirl.
