Plot Synopsis

WIZARDS VS. ALIENS follows the adventures of two 16-year-old boys, Tom and Benny, who battle to save Earth from the Nekross, an alien race. Hanging out with his mates and playing sports, Tom lives a seemingly ordinary life with his dad and grandmother, but he hides a big secret: he comes from a family of wizards. His best friend, Benny, is a scientific genius, and together the boys learn to use magic and science to solve any problem. Tom's Dad, Michael, is a non-wizard and has been a single parent since he lost his wife, Helen, in a magical conflict when Tom was very young. Tom's grandmother, Ursula, is a wizard ready to stand up to the evil plans of the invading Nekross, and she has the help of Randal Moon, a hobgoblin and guardian of the Chamber of Mysteries, who protects the ancient Crowe bloodline. When the Nekross King, a foul and evil ruler of an alien race, travels toward Earth, he sends his children, Lexi and Varg, and the Grazlax, evil magic-draining creatures, to fatten himself on more magic. Not only must Tom and Benny save Earth from the Nekross and Grazlax, but they must also battle scheming billionaire Stephanie Guant, who is determined to harness the power of magic and combine it with Nekross technology so she can rule the world. The Hub aired a U.S. sneak peek of this series at 6pm ET on Monday, May 27, 2013, just five days before showing the same episode as the official U.S. series premiere on Saturday, June 1 at 7pm ET.
