Dylan, a 15-year-old boy from GoAnimate city who wakes up from the bed and gets ready for the last day of school (with his siblings).

After he goes to school, Dylan and his friends (Emily, Kyle and Aaron) are going to do something at home like pranking her brother by scaring him (Emily), watching TV (Kyle) and visiting his uncle's (Aaron). At GoAnimate Jail, an evil workman named PC Guy has finally escaped from prison and he tries to get vengeance by turning GoAnimate City into PC Guy City.

Meanwhile, Dylan and Emily inform Kyle that PC Guy has escaped from prison and is thinking about turning GoAnimate City into PC Guy City.

Now Dylan and his friends team up to save GoAnimate City and stop PC Guy from turning GoAnimate City into PC Guy City.

To save the city, they must go to Kyle's father's office work (before he died), "Spacewiz" and meet Kyle's father's leader, Yarta and she helps them to save the city by sneaking up on PC Guy to see what's he up to. But when Dylan is still sneaking up on PC Guy, Kyle pees his pants (in front of Emily), and they head back to Spacewiz.

And the next mission is to go to the spaceship that includes PC Guy on it and cut the wires from PC Guy's computer to make it have a virus without getting caught.

When still in space, they get caught by PC Guy and trapped by PC Guy. They escape and Dylan's siblings (including the other grounded users and the good users) show up to help them too. Now PC Guy and Dylan are having a battle and Kyle pees his pants again (in front of Emily again with the good users).

After their battle in the spaceship, Emily sees Dylan unconscious, thinking he'd been killed by PC Guy. Dylan wakes up and they go back to Spacewiz to celebrate. Meanwhile, PC Guy shows up again with a red button on his hand.

The two good users named TheJoJuan4444 and Joseph Selaty come by and stop PC Guy from pushing the button via calling his parents.

Suddenly, PC Guy's parents show up and ground him for the rest of his life for trying to turn GoAnimate City into the city named after him. His parents take him home. They continue to celebrate and Dylan and his siblings come home, and they celebrate with dinner at Dylan's house.



Dylan The Movie was produced by TheJoJuan4444 Studios, GoAnimate Pictures and Dylan Productions. All animated scenes are created by GoAnimate on its own and made by TheJoJuan4444. Summit Entertainment had announced that they'll distribute the film as a distributor only on January 1, 2013 under LionsGate.
