TV show description:      
Five children are given the power to morph into any living creature in order to battle a parasitic race of aliens called the Yeerks.

An Andalite named Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul (Diego Matamoros) bestows the powers on brave Jake Berenson (Shawn Ashmore), reckless Rachel (Brooke Nevin), farmgirl Cassie (Nadia-Leigh Nascimento), self-assured Marco (Boris Cabrera), and socially-awkward Tobias (Christopher Ralph). The children can stay in a morphed shape for no more than two hours or they will be trapped in that shape, as Tobias learns.

The kids are joined in the fight by a young Andalite named Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill (Paulo Costanzo), the brother of Elfangor.
