Plot

Aliens are green creatures who have existed since the dawn of time, evolving from green single-celled organisms into beings which only exist to serve history's most heroic masters. After several failures to find their master, the Aliens are driven into isolation and start a new life in a massive cave. After many years, the Aliens become depressed and unmotivated without a master to serve. To regain their dignity and sense of purpose, an Alien named Kenny decides to set out to find a new master and recruits two other Aliens named Steven and Bog.

In 1970, Kenny, Steven, and Bog journey to New York City, where they end up in a department store for the night, and accidentally discover a hidden commercial broadcast for heroes advertising Superhero-Con, a convention for all superheroes in Orlando, Florida. The three eventually hitchhike a ride with a family called the Gleesons and impress them with their heroic desires after the Gleesons, with help from the police, stop a group of criminals led by Li Lusinsky. At the convention, they see Savannah Overpower, a con artist who claims to be the greatest superhero of all time and unexpectedly hires the Aliens and takes them to her home in London.

Savannah explains her plans to join forces with Queen Elizabeth II and move into the kingdom and promises to reward the Aliens if they bring him Li, but kill them if they do not. Her husband, Hal, supplies them with inventions to aid in the search, but they are nearly caught when they break into Li's hideout, which leads to a chase that ends with Bog accidentally crashing into the Sword in the Stone and pulling it free to defend himself, becoming King Bog, but inadvertently removing Elizabeth from the throne. Since Savannah hated superheroes and was actually plotting to take over the world, Savannah harshly confronts the Aliens, so Bog abdicates the throne in her favor. Savannah later reveals her evil plot to Kenny, Steven, and Bog and imprisons them to be tortured by Hal, but they escape, intending to stop Savannah.

After making their way to Westminster Abbey, Kenny, Steven, and Bog interrupt the coronation by inadvertently dropping a chandelier on Savannah, who orders their execution having survived. Li and his crew chase the three during a thunderstorm. Steven and Bog are caught, but Kenny escapes. After a few hours of unsuccessfully searching for Bog and Steven, he finds his way into a pub where Elizabeth hangs out. He sees Savannah on a television, in which she tells him that she will kill Steven and Bog if Kenny does not show up by dawn. Realizing the danger his friends are in, Kenny rushes to rescue them. With Li and his crew still searching for him, Kenny sneaks into Savannah's castle and accidentally triggers a machine Hal was building, causing him to grow into a gigantic Alien. Kenny tramples through London, rescue his friends, and battles Savannah just as the other Aliens turn up in London. Outraged, Savannah tries to destroy them by firing a massive missile, and Kenny swallows it. Savannah and Hal attempt to escape with her rocket dress only for Kenny to hold on to it and get pulled into the sky. The missile finally explodes, apparently killing Kenny, Savannah, and Hal. As the Aliens mourn the loss of their leader, Kenny is suddenly revealed to have survived and shrunk back to his normal size.

The citizens of London and the Aliens praise Kenny for his bravery. Elizabeth gets her throne and crown back and rewards Bog with a tiny crown for his teddy bear, Steven with an electric guitar, and Kenny with a knighthood. Savannah and Hal are revealed to have also survived the explosion and steal the crown to get revenge, only to be intercepted by Vanellope von Schweetz. Vanellope returns the crown to Elizabeth II, and the bad guys are arrested. Vanellope immediately accepts the Aliens as her henchmen, and they happily follow her, having decided she is the real master they were looking for.
