Planet 51

Synopsis

Sixteen year old Lem lives on Planet 51, a white picket-fenced world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950's America. He is happy in his safe, predictable world and spends his time daydreaming about running the local planetarium and dating the girl next door, Neera. The only thing that rocks the idyllic life of the planet's green-skinned inhabitants is their fear of 'alien' invasion. No-one is more fearful of this than Lem's best friend Skiff, who is certain that the government is hiding the truth that aliens really do exist!

One day, out of the blue, and millions of miles from his own planet, astronaut Captain Charles 'Chuck' Baker crash lands in Neera's backyard. Unaware of his surroundings, he disembarks the ship revelling in his Big Moment. He plants his flag triumphantly and turns - only to find a Planet 51 inhabitant staring back at him bemused!
 
From here we join Chuck, Lem and the gang in a spectacular comic adventure which is sure to delight the whole family - whatever planet you are from!
