This film is set to be the first in a Danny Phantom trilogy, followed by Danny Phantom 2 and Danny Phantom 3.
Jack (Goodman) and Maddie Fenton (Prepon) are avid ghost hunters, believing themselves to be experts in the paranormal field. They attempt to create a portal from our world to the ghost world, what they call the Ghost Zone. When it fails, the two fall into a years long depression. Tired of seeing his parents in that state after years, Danny Fenton (Lerman) attempts to fix the machine. While successful, it also somewhat backfired, altering Danny's DNA, making him half-human, half-ghost. Meanwhile, from inside the Ghost Zone, a ghost by the name of Skulker comes out in search of the one who activated the portal, putting him on the trail of Danny.
The movie has two post credits scenes. The first one shows Jack Fenton meeting with Max Tennyson, discussing the presence of ghosts in the world, and Max needing Danny for "something important." The second shows Vlad Plasmius (played by Johnny Depp) within the Ghost Zone, revealing he had been watching Skulker and Danny fight.
