Planet 51 unfolds on a world far from our own, where little green men, women and child live in domestic bliss which is quite similar to 1950s America. The Chordettes’ perky Lollipop plays on the jukebox of the local diner and kids crowd the cinema to watch the latest sci-fi epic about those nasty human invaders trying to destroy the resident alien communities.

When a lone astronaut does touch down on the planet, he faces the a level of alient hostility.

Gung-ho American astronaut Captain Charles “Chuck” Baker touches down on Planet 51 believing he will be the first being to ever set foot on this alien world. Instead, the human interloper discovers teenage budding astronomer Lem, his friend Skiff, sassy next-door neighbour Neera and a species that has been nurtured on a fear of men from the skies.

Once his presence on the planet is known, General Grawl sets out to capture Chuck and deliver him to deranged Professor Kipple. “You must capture the alien and bring it to me so I can unlock the secrets of its marvellous brain,” chortles the loopy scientist. Lem and his pals have a little more common sense, and reason that Chuck must be a good guy.
