Four Kids and It is the fun, family action adventure story of four children who are horrified to learn that their beach holiday is in fact a bonding trip with their potential future step siblings engineered by new couple Alice (Patton) and David (Goode). During an argument, they accidently find a Psammead, a magical, sandy, grumpy creature called IT (voiced by Caine) who can grant them one wish a day – only to see the wish cancelled as soon as the sun sets. The kids must learn to work together and choose their wishes wisely after an evil villain (played by Brand) makes it his mission to steal the Psammead for himself.
