When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.
The girl with the lemonade stand is Adam Sandler's daughter.
Pac-Man is not bad. You'll see.
Sam Brenner: Professor Iwatani, what are you doing?
Professor Iwatani: I will talk to him, he's my son.
Professor Iwatani: Hello, my sweet, little boy. Look how big you've grown.
Ludlow Lamonsoff: That's so sweet, he's so sweet.
Professor Iwatani: I know, you're a good boy.
Professor Iwatani: Somebody kill this stupid thing!
Although the movie is titled "Pixels", the attacking aliens are actually composed of voxels. Pixels are 2D and Voxels are 3D. However, it is never claimed in the movie itself that aliens are made of pixels, and the name of the movie is just a name, not a statement of fact. Of course, the movie couldn't have been called "Voxels" in any case - this term is too obscure for marketing purposes (see Trivia section for details). Anyway, since the movie itself is a two-dimensional medium (3D is just an illusion created by two 2D rails), technically there are no real voxels in the movie.
The opening titles look like they show a triple reflection off a monitor screen and protective glass, typical on an arcade game.
