Snyder, a historian who has spent many years trying to unlock the powers of a statue, wishes to capture Max for validation of his life's work.
Despite popular belief, this is not a movie based on the cartoon series, it's the other way around. The movie went into development in 1985 and was released in 1986 with an intention of leading into a live action series. Instead it became a cartoon series in 1987 but did not follow the origins of the movie. Instead of Max becoming a monster, the main character became Mombi, a small cute and friendly monster from another dimension who befriends a boy named Max and his friends.
