Here’s the official synopsis.

When her younger brother Charlie (Bateman) unexpectedly disappears into the magical, animated universe of PLAYMOBIL®, unprepared Marla (Taylor Joy) must go on a quest of a lifetime to bring him home.

As she sets off on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds, Marla teams up with some unlikely and heroic new friends – the smooth-talking food truck driver Del (Jim Gaffigan), the dashing and charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (Radcliffe), a wholehearted misfit robot, an extravagant fairy-godmother (Trainor) and many more.

Through their vibrant adventure, Marla and Charlie realize that no matter how life plays out, you can achieve anything when you believe in yourself.

The film is directed by Lino DiSalvo and produced by On Animation Studios.

Playmobil: The Movie is in UK cinemas on 9 August, 2019
