Home (2015)

An alien on the run from his own people makes friends with a girl. He tries to help her on her quest, but can be an interference. (94 mins.)
Director: Tim Johnson
“ Gorg is an obvious reference to the Borg in Star Trek The Next Generation, as are their ships - although star shaped instead of square.

In the party invitation, Oh dances the "King Tut" dance from Steve Martin's comedy song of the same name.

The death song Oh sings when the Gorg are coming is the original Star Trek intro music.

When the humans are being placed in the new human land, the family similar to that from Inside Out is shown

The Boov are not all the same shade of purple. Not taking into account their color change when showing emotions, their skin seems to span a range of different shades (this is particularly easy to see during scenes on the crowded ship). It appears that there might actually be seven different shades of "normal" Boov skin tones. If that is the case, it might be a nod to the seven different Boov genders that are discussed in the book that the movie is based on (Adam Rex's "The True Meaning of Smekday").

Jim Parsons character Oh was originally to be named "J. Lo" - though it was changed for unknown reasons. In real life, "J. Lo" is a nickname Jennifer Lopez goes by. Coincidentally, she is also in the voice cast of this film.

In addition to voicing the main character, Rihanna has a number of original songs in the soundtrack.

Gratuity 'Tip' Tucci, voiced by Rihanna, is the first human black protagonist in a feature film by DreamWorks Animation. However Will Smith's character in Shark Tale (2004), though a fish, was written and portrayed as stereotypically black, potentially making him the company's first black protagonist, regardless of species.

The Jennifer Lopez title track "Feel The Light" opens with the familiar chords from Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), used in that film to communicate with the aliens. ” - gattonero975

Snoopy's Reunion (1991 Short Film)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
To cheer up Snoopy, Charlie Brown helps him organise a family reunion of his litter siblings. (24 mins.)
Director: Sam Jaimes
“ The origin of Snoopy depicted in this special contradicts the canonical version of how the beagle came to be, whereas Snoopy Come Home followed the comic-strip's mythos more closely. The main differences:

In this special, Charlie Brown, at his current age, wanted a dog to greet him when coming home from school, thus going to buy Snoopy on his own. Originally, when Charlie Brown was 3 years old, his parents bought Snoopy for him after a bad day at a playground, when a big kid poured sand on him and made him cry.
Here, Sally is her current age when Snoopy was bought. Originally, Snoopy was bought before she was born.
Here, when Charlie Brown and Linus go to buy Snoopy at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, Linus looks at the farm's records and finds that Snoopy was a used dog. Originally, Linus found this out by calling the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm when Snoopy ran away to visit Lila in the hospital.

-Originally, Lila and her family were forced to return Snoopy, because they moved into a new apartment where no dogs were allowed. Here, they lived in the same apartment, which had a new rule in which no dogs were allowed.

Originally, this special was to be a mini-series (much like "This is America, Charlie Brown") depicting Snoopy's siblings, but CBS nixed the idea.

The last Peanuts special produced for CBS. ” - gattonero975
