Synopsis

When heroic astronaut Scorch Supernova is stranded on a dangerous planet it's up to his quiet, nerdy brother Gary to do battle with his evil captor Shanker and rescue him. Along the way, he winds up a prisoner of Area 51, where enslaved aliens are forced to work on glamorous inventions such as the internet, the mobile phone, and a dastardly exterminating death ray. As interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira and their adventurous son Kip. This lively, colourful film is packed with pop culture gags to entertain older audiences, whilst providing undemanding delight for younger viewers.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
