Animated SciFi Movie... Can't remember name.

All I can remember is bits and pieces of the plot.  I've searched and haven't been able to find but I do remember seeing it as a teaser for a recent movie.

It's an animated movie.  Takes place on a spaceship at least part of the time.  It's about a boy who lives on the ship and his ship's AI takes care of him, acting like his mother.  He feels restless and pushes against this overprotectiveness.

The main character isn't really a boy, but could you be thinking about Starchaser, The Legend of Orin?
Two that have similar scenarios but are not animated are Space Raiders and Battle Beyond the Stars.
No, not Starchaser.  That was one of the few results I came up with on my own.  And I'm 100 percent on it being animated.  Thanks anyways.
Are you sure it's a movie?  This is the plot of half of the adventure game The Broken Age.
Holy hell, you're absolutely right.  The graphics must have made me think of pixar films.  Screwed the pooch on my end.  Thanks so much though.  Going to buy it and play it now.
