""Everything that is or was started with a dream"

From the wild imagination of a child and the digital vision of director Robert Rodriguez (creator of the hit SPY KIDS series as well as the recently acclaimed SIN CITY) comes the magical, original, not to mention three-dimensional, family entertainment, THE ADVENTURES OF SHARK BOY AND LAVA GIRL IN 3D.

Sometimes the most amazing superheroes are the ones inside your dreams. So discovers 10 year-old Max (Cayden Boyd), an outcast little boy who has become lost in his own fantasy world in an attempt to escape the everyday worries of dealing with parents (David Arquette and Kristin Davis), school bullies and no-fun summer vacations. But when Max realizes the cool characters, high-flying adventures and incredible secret powers that dwell in his imagination might be far more real than anyone is willing to believe, his whole world changes.

Now, Max is blasting off on a mission to Planet Drool where Shark Boy (Taylor Lautner) - a kid once lost at sea and raised under the watchful fins of sharks only to become half-shark - and Lava Girl (Taylor Dooley) - a volcanic beauty who emits leaping flames and red-hot rocks - live in a realm of astonishing wonders, one in which the Train of Thought can whisk you off to the mouth-watering Land of Milk and Cookies.

Teeming with mountainous roller coasters and violet skies, Planet Drool looks like the perfect kid paradise until Max meets up with the shocking Mr Electric (George Lopez) and his sidekick Minus (Jacob Davich) who are trying to do away with all dreams forever. With Shark Boy and Lava Girl in trouble, only Max can guide them - by imagining every clever move of their wily escape from Mr. Electric's Lair. Speedily conjuring up an incredible array of gadgets, gizmos, contraptions and cool ideas Max learns the power of turning his dreams into reality.

THE ADVENTURES OF SHARK BOY & LAVA GIRL IN 3D is written and directed by Robert Rodriguez, based on the intergalactic journeys and superhero stories created by his seven year-old son Racer Max.
