"Something strange is coming to their planet... us!"

A galactic-sized alien adventure comedy, PLANET 51stars Dwayne Johnson who voices Capt Charles "Chuck" Baker, an astronaut from Earth who lands on Planet 51. Capt Baker thinks he's about to make history book the first to set foot on this planet, but is in for a big surprise.

Far from being uninhabited, Planet 51 has been colonized by a race of little green people who live on a white picket-fenced world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950's America. Fearing for their safety at the sight of Capt Baker, they panic and prepare to defend their planet thinking they are about to be over-run by the arrival of these alien invaders...

With the help of a friendly teenager and other Planet 51 citizens, Chuck tries to avoid the local Anti-Alien Army, and get back safely to his spaceship before he is captured.

From the award nominated scriptwriter of SHREK.
