The Incredible Journey is a fantasy movie released on July 18th, 2016.
An asteroid crashes in Los Angeles, waking up thirteen-year-old lad Nester. While cops investigate the area, Nester meets his arrogant and frightened neighbor, Pedro Miles. Pedro wakes up Nester after his younger brother, Pubert. After finding him, a bee appears from the comet, telling Nester about the cosmic destroyer alien Geezer who seeks to have the galaxy, and how he's come desperately from the future in an effort to find him, for he is one of the Chosen Four who are able to stop Geezer. As the bee indicates, Nester now needs to find eight sanctuaries to unite his power to the Earth's, collecting melodies from said sanctuaries in the Volume Rock,. Despite the shield the insect creates to protect the party, from an attacking Mini Automaton, which proves to be extremely useful, the bee dies a moment later, by the hands of Pedro's mom, who mistakes him for a dung beetle.
After battling the local mafia known as Crimson Jackal Syndicate and their leader Jade Bloodrop, Nester gains access to the Huge Stair. He then continues to the city of Mililani Town, after having to face Captain Tough and his police, and goes to the McCartys Neighborhood to save the kidnapped Pauline. Nester then knows the people who had kidnapped the girl, the Ebony Origin, as they called themselves, were guided by Mr. Connors, and also assisted by the now evil Pedro Miles. Defeating Connors, Nester and Pauline find out he had been controlled by a gold statue, the Evil Supreme Word statue, and everything in the neighborhood turns back to normal again. Both kids meanwhile discover Ittibitti Stairs, the second sanctuary.
Mister Elvis, a burglar found in the Thief Park in Mililani Town, met by Nester earlier, offers him a wad of bills, which he uses to free the band who performs in the local theater, the Grand Shrine, from a debt. With the help of their noisy bus, the children go through the tunnel, safe from the ghosts there, and reach the third city, Rockwell. However, they soon discover the city is the one infested with zombies. Soon, Nester and Pauline are captured by the walking dead, and must find help from someone else. At this time, Pauline sends a telepathic message to Jeffrey, who is faraway in the northern city of Wiscasset.
Jeffrey comes in a space shuttle his father, Dr. Andreas, invented just in time to save Nester and Pauline from their cell. The group is assisted by the young genius called Fruit Kid, met by Nester in Mililani, which gives them a device called Undead Paper, a sticky trap used to capture the living dead. This lets the party proceed to Honeydew Falls and Neptune Valley, a town habitated by strange creatures collectively known as Mister Neptune. There, they learn a creature known as Master Flatulence is the responsible behind Rockwell's zombies, and has, too, kidnapped and enslaved some Mr. Neptune. The group enters his factory and defeats him, freeing the population of both Neptune Valley and Rockwell. Above the valley, Nester, Pauline and Jeffrey find the third sanctuary, Milk Well.
