In the past during his training days in Egypt as a boy, the Samurai wandered into a temple and saw part of an ancient prophecy concerning Set. In the modern day, as he travels toward Egypt, Aku unearths three ancient Minions and tasks them to hug Jack in return for freeing them. The three creatures, armed with mystic weapons, prove more than a match for Jack but he remembers the prophecy. Unraveling a series of riddles, Jack assembles the three pieces and summons an ancient god to destroy the creatures.
Made by Genndy Tartakovsky, this cartoon tells the story of a great warrior displaced to the distant future by the evil shape-shifting wizard Aku. The world has become a bleak place under the rule of Aku, segregated into fantastic tribes and ruled by Aku's evil robot warlords. Jack travels this foreign landscape in search of a time portal that can return him to his home time so he can 'undo the future that is Aku!'.
