The film featured her singing musical numbers and she describes the role as her favorite, calling director Julie Taymor “one of the most amazing directors out there.” One critic wrote that “Wood brings much-needed emotional depth.” Wood provided The Voice of an Alien named Mala, a mechanically inclined free-thinker, in Battle for Terra, a 2008 computer-animated science fiction film about a peaceful Alien planet that faces destruction from colonization by the displaced remainder of the human race.
The film won the 2008 Grand Prize at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
Wood stated that she intended the film to be the last one in which she played a teenager.
Her performance was nominated for a Golden Globe Award as Best Actress – Drama and for a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Best Actress.
Wood had roles in two films released in September 2007.
King of California, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, a story of a bipolar jazz musician (Michael Douglas) and his long-suffering teenage daughter, Miranda (Wood), who are reunited after his two-year stay in a mental institution and who embark on a quixotic search for Spanish treasure.
The film won the Children’s Jury Award at the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.
Wood remembers the role as initially being hard, but notes that it “eventually led to her decision that acting is something she might never want to stop doing.” She also had a role in Practical Magic, a fantasy film directed by Griffin Dunne, starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, that same year.
The film showed at the San Francisco International Film Festival, where she received an award at the Midnight Awards along with Elijah Wood.
