Plot Edit

From the creators of Mr. Bean and Star Wars

In the alternate history, several atomic bombs lands on Earth, destroying part of the world and it falls into the post-apocalyptic town.

10 years later, a young adolescent girl, Pacifica Parker (Rihanna), which now lives with her grandmother after the apocalyptic war against the aliens which led to her parents' death, leaving the town in ruins. She met the gentle trolls, the unintelligent Wayne (Jim Carrey), his grumpy son, Stupid (Alan Cumming), and his dim-witted brother, Dru (Bill Hader), and their pet unicorn Brooke (Rihanna), which are preparing an invasion of the Earth that use a mind control weapon. One day, the pirates chases after her. During the chase, she met a crazy robot named Robit (Eddie Murphy) and his former invention, Wonderbot.

Robit, Pok, and the other trolls is later captured by the pirates and was taken into the ship. The ship is commanded by the feline Captain Amelia along with her stone-skinned and disciplined first mate, Ren. The crew is a motley bunch, secretly led by the half-robot former cook and current general Maul (Nick Kroll), whom Robit suspects is the cyborg he was betrayed his own kind. Pok is sent down to work in the galley, where he is supervised by Maul and his shape-shifting pet, Morph. Despite Robit's mistrust of Maul, Maul reveals himself to be a bad alien that wants to turn humans into slaves (which the truth was later confirmed in his nightmare).

Spending one day in the ship, the other robots are received by the visit of the kangaroo-like mate, Shellia (Jennifer Saunders), and her son, Reo (Nancy Cartwright). During the voyage, the ship encounters a supernova. Robit, while securing lifelines of all crew members, saves Maul from falling just in time. The supernova then devolves into a black hole and Ren is shortly sucked into it. The crew accidentally discovers that Ren's death was Parker's fault, and blames her for holding Ren back, sentencing her to death. Pacifica Parker abandons the ship, along with his friends, causing to Maul targets to blast Pok. The fugitives are shot down by a mutineer during their escape, injuring the pet horse, Brooke.

Eventually, Pacifica and Robit begins saving aliens in the neighborhood. Upon discovering this as a plan for stealing treasure, Maul orders Shelia to stop. Upon arriving at the Forbidden Place, Pacifica and the other aliens is captured by the greedy sorcerer and con-artist, Alakazam (John Cleese), wants to Pacifica to go bot-fighting in order to became rich, but after this, she defeats Alakazam and escapes from the Forbidden Place. One night, as the pirates corner the group here; using a back-door, Pacifica reunites again with her grandmother in return to the ship in an attempt to steal the treasure. Shelia attacks them but gets thrown into space, which causes Reo joins the group to the good side.

They obtain the treasure, but upon returning they are caught by Maul, who already captured Wayne, Stupid, Dru, and Brooke. Moments after steals the treasure, a second atomic bomb strikes and destroy the post-apocalyptic city, spreading destruction in its wake. Pacifica and his friends flee and jump across the sea to the mainland. After escaping, Robit and Parker gets into an argument, and blaming him for holding her back. Pacifica and the others arrives back to the apocalyptic world to stop the apocalypse, but Maul and his crew corners and attacks them. The final battle ensues when Maul is crushed and destroyed by the atomic bomb, and the crew calls off the invansion.

After Pok and Robit restores their frienship, the world is back to normal. But then, a spaceship appears in the sky and the aliens goes back home off to Earth, sharing several goodbyes. As avoid to being captured by the government, Robit tries to return home with his former invention, the time machine. With great reluctance, Pacifica and her grandmother bids a farewell with him, but instead lets Robit move in with her home. Back home, Pacifica and Robit reunites with his friends. Sometime later, a party is hosted at the rebuilt apartment, as robots and monsters join with them.
