Rihanna will add on to her entertainment conquests this November when she stars as the voice of Tip in DreamWorks Animation’s newest film ‘Almost Home.’

‘Almost Home’ is an alien-themed animation based on the book ‘The True Meaning of Smekday’ by Adam Rex. The popular children’s book is about a group of extraterrestrials called ‘Boovs’ who have conquered Earth. Rihanna’s character, a feisty teenage girl named Tip, must work with a rogue ‘Boov’ to save the planet.

Pop’s favorite bad gal has been on a roll in the last year becoming the newest face of Balmain’s Spring 2014 campaign, CFDA Fashion Icon Award recipient and a record-breaking recording artist, second only to The Beatles for most million-selling singles in the UK.

Watch the trailer for the out-of-this-world animation below.
