Earthlings who have fled their unsustainable environment (take a lesson, kids) are the belligerent, culturally insensitive visitors, and aliens with big, moist eyes out of a sad-clown painting are the home team in this gentle, dreamy animated sci-fi tale with 3-D options in selected theaters, Battle for Terra. The production is more novel in its indie origins (not DreamWorks! not Pixar!) than in story or character development. Evan ? Rachel Wood voices Mala, a resourceful ? female at home on her peaceful planet, Terra. Luke Wilson voices Jim, the human pilot she rescues, even though the rest of his people are desperate invading marauders. B?
