Planet Chasers is a 2014 American animated science fiction action film produced by T.J. Entertainment and Imperium Entertainment for 20th Century Fox. The ninth feature film from T.J. Entertainment and the seventh from Imperium, it was co-written and directed by Trevor Jordan and co-written and produced by Nicholas Pockes and Sean Andrews. The film follows a young pilot prodigy named Teddy Netwall, who is recruited by veteran pilot Orlando Techson into the Planet Chasers Justice Force, a team so far composed only of him, special combat robot QT, and mechanic Hutch Quadrant that intervenes with and dismantles corrupt intergalactic governments.
The film stars the voices of Chris Hardwick, Abbi Jacobson, Jenny Slate, Jonah Hill, Tye Sheridan, and Samuel L. Jackson, and was the first from T.J. Entertainment and Imperium to be distributed by Fox since 2001's PuffRuff School: The Movie. It was also the former's first film to receive a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America.
Planet Chasers premiered in Los Angeles on August 2, 2014, and was released in RealD 3D, Digital 3D, and premium large format theatres on August 8, 2014. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised its animation and score, but criticized its story as somewhat derivative. It was a box office success, grossing over $129.2 million worldwide against its $32 million budget, and was later released on Digital HD, DVD, and Blu-ray on December 9, 2014.
