Playmobil: The Movie | Official Trailer | Coming Soon to Theaters.
Marla is a young spirit-free girl who dreams of traveling the world but her plans are postponed after receiving the news that her parents have died in a car accident. Four years later, Marla has grown up to take care of her younger brother Charlie, who is lonely since the death of his parents. Charlie sneaks out on Marla to visit a toy museum with a Playmobil exhibit. After Marla arrives and scolds Charlie for running away, a lighthouse illuminates and begins levitating the exhibit's figurines. They are transported into a Playmobil universe. Marla and Charlie find themselves in the middle of a Viking battle, to which Charlie joins until he is kidnapped by some pirates and mysteriously disappear. Disappointed, Marla goes to the nearest town hoping to ask for help. Unable to get, Marla runs into Del, the driver of a food truck, whose client refuses to pay him over pink hay that causes the town's horses to sprout wings. As Marla tries to form a posse to find Charlie, Del gets her out of trouble when she shows Viking gold to the whole town. He agrees to help Marla find her brother for the gold. Elsewhere, Charlie is taken to a city called Constantinopolis, where he and other characters are caged and presented by Emperor Maximus who intends them to fight to death. Charlie and the rest of the characters attempt to escape by retrieving the ship of one of the prisoners, but backfires. Meanwhile, Marla and Del run into Rex Dasher, a secret agent and an old friend of Del. Rex explains that a number of characters have disappeared including Charlie. They sneak into a villainous spy headquarters to find information about Charlie's disappearance. Despite some issues, they successfully gather the data. The three depart until Rex is captured by the pirates as well. He is taken away to Constantinopolis and meets Charlie, who tells him that Marla has been looking for him. Filled with hope, Charlie breaks away from their imprisonment and lets the rest of the characters run away as he decides to get taken by the guards.
