Ben 10: Faeries is the crossover between Ben 10 and Faeries.

Plot

While waiting for their new home to be renovated, Nellie and her younger brother George are sent to a farm in the countryside, much to George's delight and Nellie's disgust. However, the farmhouse and the surrounding area are teeming with fey creatures, most of which Nellie cannot see initially because she doesn't believe in faeries. The first the two children encounter is a somewhat crotchety and unfriendly hobgoblin named Broom (whom Nellie can see) who is (more or less) secretly looking after the farm.

While playing outside, George inadvertently stumbles into a fairy ring surrounding a massive, ancient oak tree and and ends up in the realm of faeries. Nellie is able to bribe Broom with honey cakes in exchange for him showing her, Ben and Gwen how to see the faeries and how to find and enter Faeryland. Broom warns Ben, Gwen and Nellie not to eat or drink anything while they is there, however, despite Tom and Jerry's rivalry, Nellie reaches her brother just in time to see George eating a faery cake. The uptight Chudley informs them that the law of the faery realm states that a mortal who consumes even one mouthful of faery food must remain in the realm forever. Ben tries to eat a faery cake, but Gwen slaps him to stop him. Nellie and George strongly — and vociferously — protest. So the Faery Prince Albrecht, the ruler of the realm, offers them a chance to escape by setting three tasks for them.

What they do not know is that the evil brother of the Prince, the Shapeshifter, and his goblin henchmen, are trying to manipulate the children and the faery citizens (Merrivale, Huccaby, Chudley, and Starcross are the only ones met in the film) to usurp the rulership of the faery realm. The Shapeshifter can steal the throne with ease if he obtains the Orb, a powerful magical sceptre in his brother's possession that is also the source of the faeries' youth and immortality. In addition, the Prince falls in love with a friend of the children, the pretty human farmhand Brigid, which proves pivotal in an old prophecy that foretells the future for the faery realm.

Nellie and George succeed in bringing Brigid to Faeryland, where she meets and falls in love with the Prince. Later, the children are instrumental in foiling the Shapeshifter's attempt to cause war between Albrecht and the faery princess to whom he was originally betrothed. Once the Shapeshifter is defeated, Nellie and George watch as Brigid is married to Albrecht, and is transformed into a faery. Two tasks down, the children return to the farm, where the faeries have left a fabricated letter to explain Brigid's disappearance.

Later, the children bring Brigid to the home of her friend, whose newborn baby is Brigid's godson. However, the Shapeshifter has followed them, and steals the child, leaving a goblin replacement. Brigid must steal the Orb for the Shapeshifter if she wants to rescue the child. Brigid makes the trade, but is horrified to see the faeries upon her return-now drastically aged. With a little help from Broom, the children help Brigid make a plan. Using a bead, a brooch pin, and a pinch of hobgoblin magic, the group creates a fake Orb. Ben, Gwen, Nellie and George sneak into a goblin party and successfully swap the Orbs. Brigid returns the original to its rightful place in the palace, saving the faeries' lives and restoring their youth.

The Shapeshifter, unaware that the Orb in his possession is fake, marches into Faeryland. He is confronted by the children, who reveal the deception. Albrecht arrives, battling his brother (who transforms into a fire-breathing dragon/mantis-like monster) and ultimately wins with Ben.

The Shapeshifter and all but one of his henchmen are thrown into prison. The last one evades detection and runs away. The children have completed their three tasks, and, as a reward for saving Faeryland, are allowed to consume as much faery food as they desire, without having to remain in Faeryland or complete another three tasks. The film ends with the children deciding to extend their stay at the farm, and the faeries flying back to the fairy tree.
