BIA: The Movie is a 2015 traditionally animated film based on Robert Slave's Wikia account, BobbyIsAwesome. It was directed by Robert Slave, and co-directed by Damen Walker. It was produced by RMS Studios and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Italy, Paramount Pictures internationally, and Lionsgate in Canada.
The film had a plot similar to 2015's MYCUN by Gabriel Garcia. The film was released on June 13, 2015. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, and performed modestly at the box office. It launched a new franchise with a sequel, which will be released on October 24, 2017, and a TV series in development for Disney XD, titled BIA Adventures.
Johnny Test and his evil friends, Justin Bieber, John Leagsdurg, Grooby101, Dr. Eggman, Kryzstofparzych and Bowser, are going to take over the world. It's up to Robert Slave, Steven Universe, Wander, Gumball & Darwin Watterson and Mario & Luigi to save the world and defeat Johnny Test.
Robert Michael Andrew Slave "Robert" invites his favorite characters Steven Universe, Gumball and Darwin Watterson, Mario, Luigi, Wander, and Sylvia to a beach party which later gets destroyed by a 50-foot tall Johnny Test-shaped robot that comes out of the ocean. Johnny Test comes out of the robot and gives a warning to the beach party guests that in 48 hours, Johnny Test and some new friends of his (who are revealed later in the film) will start to destroy the world. Then Johnny sends an army of mutated clones of himself after everyone in the party. A few of the Johnny Test clones chase Robert and Steven into a nearby hotel and into an office with a door left wide open, only to be locked out by the two. Robert tells Steven to guard the door while he digs through a chest for some gear.
Robert gets out just enough supplies just in time for the mutated Johnny Test clones to break open the door. He and Steven bust through the window and save all the other good characters from the attack of the rest of the clones. But Robert tells them that they need to get rid of the mutants before they escape into town. After all of the mutants are defeated, Robert and his friends split up and go home to write down ideas for a plan to stop Johnny from taking over the world.
Using a bus which he, of course, knows how to drive, Robert picks up his friends and forms a team called "BIA" (BobbyIsAwesome). The BIAs share their ideas, and apparently Robert has the best one.
In the middle of the trip to Johnny Test's hometown Porkbelly, the bus skids away from the road and falls off a 100-foot cliff, almost touching the ground when Robert uses his "emergency telekinesis" to return the bus to the ledge.
The BIA's are attacked by Dr. Eggman and Bowser. Steven, Gumball, and Darwin are kidnapped while Robert is sent back home.
He wakes up and meets the main cast of Animaniacs. One of those Animaniacs characters, Wakko, decides to help Robert get to Porkbelly by making him a United States map while singing "Wakko's America".
Pac-Man and Harvey Beaks later come into Robert's house, offering to join him on the expedition. While following the United States map, Robert finds a wand on the ground and picks it up, guessing that it belongs to one of the Mugman characters Free Wizard. While trying to use this wand to get to Porkbelly faster, he accidentally turns himself into several useless animals/objects. Finally, after finding out how the wand works (it has a good side and an evil side), Robert changes himself back to normal, and casts a spell that sends him, Pac-Man and Harvey to Johnny's lair, a laboratory that Johnny stole from his sisters Susan and Mary while they were away on their vacation with Hugh and Lila Test.
In the laboratory that is now Johnny's, Robert finds his friends locked in cages which were supposed to have the non-human test subjects inside. He, Pac-Man and Harvey go into battle with the naughty Canadian cartoon character and his talking dog companion Dukey, along with his henchmen Justin Bieber, John Leagsdurg, Grooby101, Dr. Eggman, Kryzstofparzych, and (once again) Eggman and Bowser. During this battle though, Robert accidentally hits a button that opens up Susan and Mary's dimensional portal, sucking up everything in the lab and breaking the cages. Robert runs off to save his friends, but they tell him to leave the laboratory and save himself, thinking there's no way Robert can save them now.
But then Robert decides to push his friends out of the sight of the portal, so it can suck him in instead before Darwin turns it off. While Johnny and his henchmen begin their worldwide rampage, Robert falls out of the other side of the portal and into a colorful village where he is taken away to a boiling pot as punishment for his "witchcraft". Fortunately, Robert remembers that he put Free Wizard's wand in his pocket, and changes himself into numerous flying objects to escape the village through the still open portal.
He returns to the real world as his natural stick figure self again to hear from his friends about what's going on outside. Robert gives them the last piece (which he found in the dimension he just left) of an unfinished weapon Steven pulled out of his hamburger backpack. While the BIA's try to figure out where to put the piece, Robert goes outside and uses numerous inventions from the laboratory to stop Johnny's henchmen. Finally, Robert calls Johnny Test's parents and sisters, telling them about the situation.
With Johnny grounded after his family made it home, and his henchmen arrested, Robert Slave, Steven Universe, Gumball Watterson, Darwin Watterson, Anais Watterson, Nicole Watterson, Richard Watterson, Wander, Mario, Luigi, Pac-Man, Homestar Runner, Harvey Beaks and the Animaniacs characters celebrate.
In the post-credits scene, Robert gives Free Wizard his wand back, gets his own magic wand that only has a good side and then goes to Mugman. Robert then tells Mugman that he got his own magic wand. The BIA's then sing their theme song. When the song ends, Robert then says goodbye to the viewers as the film ends.

The film was met with mixed to positive reviews. Travis Knight, the producer of 2009's Coraline and 2012's ParaNorman, gave an okay review, saying "BIA: The Movie is not really that bad, but it's a clone of MYCUN: The Movie that has a different plot with different characters and stuff. It's more different than Go!Animate: The Movie, but I give it a 10/10, because Robert Slave, who is voiced by himself, defeated Johnny Test in a film like that."
