Space Chimps 2 takes place a few days after the first film. It follows Comet, the techno chimp who longs to be taken as a full-fledged space chimp. However, he finds out that he was cut from the mission due to the budget cuts and no one takes him seriously. He gets on the rocket ship and he accidentally launch the ship into space. Comet journeys to Planet Malgor where he bonds with the alien Kilowatt, and lives out his ultimate fantasy.
