At the Zippos Circus on Thamesmead in London, Jaguar the Cat is celebrating his 8th birthday, but has grown bored with his daily routine and longs to experience the wild. Jaguar's best friend and owner is Allias Salmon the feline-sapien, a humanoid related to humans and cats, who enjoys showing off for the public and his celebrity status as "the King of the Circus" attempts to cheer Jaguar up, but Jaguar, still unsatisfied, gets some tips from the circus' terror birds—Beaky, Spike, Phoren, and Lecky who are trying to escape the circus, and follows them out. Allias, Bear the black cat, Bozark the elephant and Danessa the deer Enchantimal pursue Jaguar in an attempt to convince him to return. The four, along with the terror birds and the dragon and chinikin duo Dexter and Sussie, find themselves at Charing Cross Station where they are quickly sedated via tranquillizer when Alllias' attempt to communicate with humans is mistaken for aggression since he's a feline-sapien. The circus, under pressure from anti-captivity activists, is forced to ship the escaped animals by a space-ship to another Earth. During their travels, the terror birds, Sussie and Dexter escape from their enclosure and take over the ship, intent on taking it to Mars. Their antics on the bridge cause the pods containing Allias, Jaguar, Bear, Bozark and Danessa to fall overboard and wash ashore on Planet Wild, because the strap securing the pods broke off due to Allias and Jaguar fighting.
The group are soon able to regroup, initially believing themselves to be at Germany. Upon exploring, however, they come across a pack of extraterrestrial animals, led by Peter Griffin, the human from Earth, and learn their true location. Allias blames Jaguar for their predicament and attempts to signal for help to get back to civilization. Jaguar, on the other hand, finds the wild to be exactly what he was looking for, with Danessa, Bear and Bozark soon joining him in enjoying the island after getting tired of Allias' arrogance. Allias, eventually having a change of heart, comes around, but, deprived from the food he was provided with at the circus, his prey drive begins to show as hunger kicks in. The group is accepted by the inhabits, though Peter Griffin's advisor Avery Bullock, cautions them about Allias' predatory nature. Peter persuades the group to help the inhabits fend off the the Grovejaws, giant humanoid alien who hunt the inhabits as prey. While Allias initially scares the Grovejaws away and is worshiped by the inhabits, later, compelled by hunger, he attacks Jaguar. Realizing that Allias is now a threat, Peter banishes him to the far side of the island where the Grovejaws live. Seeing what has happened to Allias, and how difficult it is to survive with so many carnivores around the planet, Jaguar begins to regret his decision to leave home.
The terror birds, Dexter and Sussie, having been to Mars and found it not to their liking, land the ship at Planet Wild. Seeing this as a chance to return Allias to Earth, Jaguar rushes after his friend against the wishes of Bear, Bozark and Danessa. Jaguar attempts to convince the now grizzled, starving Allias to return, but Allias refuses out of fear of attacking Jaguar again. The terror birds, Bear, Bozark and Danessa go to find Jaguar, but are trapped by the Grovejaws. At the last minute, Allias overcomes his predatory instincts and scares the Grovejaws away from the planet forever. The inhabits regain their respect for Allias, and the terror birds help him satisfy his hunger through brownies. As the inhabits throw a farewell celebration for the group, the terror birds decide not to break the news that the space ship has run out of fuel.
