Almost Home is a 2014 5-minute animated short film, produced by DreamWorks Animation and released on March 7, 2014 in front of Mr. Peabody & Sherman and on April 11, 2014 in front of Blue Sky Studios' Rio 2.
A colony of aliens (The Boov) try to find a much more peaceful planet, but run into unexpected complications, one planet after another.
- Almost Home is (like Ice Age: Continental Drift with Scrat's Continental Crack-Up and Scrat's Continental Crack-Up: Part 2, Ice Age: Collision Course with Cosmic Scrat-tastrophe, Despicable Me 3 with Mower Minions, The Lego Ninjago Movie with The Master and Hotel Transylvania 3 with Puppy!) a short prelude to the film, Home.
- It ultimately took "Rocky & Bullwinkle's" place before the feature presentation of Mr. Peabody & Sherman. So Rocky & Bullwinkle will have to find another DreamWorks film to play in front of.
- Clips from the short film appeared in the Home film trailers and behind the scenes. The clips are never used in the film.
- A Deadly Nadder from How To Train Your Dragon made a brief appearance in this short, though it was just its foot.
- The third DreamWorks Animation's theatrical short film, after The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper and First Flight.
- The second Universal Animation Studios theatrical short film
- The second DreamWorks Animation's short film to be rated G by the MPAA, after The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper.
