It borrows its storyline from Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper.

Garfield: The Movie (voiced by Bill Murray) goes to London with canine sidekick Odie to surprise his master, Jon Arbuckle (Breckin Meyer), who is in London to propose to his girlfriend, Dr. Liz Wilson (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Garfield inadvertently switches places with Prince, a royal cat who has just inherited a Castle.

In the grand estate Garfield now calls home, he receives the royal treatment, including a Butler and an international array of four-legged servants and followers. Lord Dargis (Billy Connolly), who is next in line to inherit the estate, wants Prince/Garfield out of the picture.

He makes many attempts to get rid of Prince/Garfield, one involving a vicious but dim Rottweiler. Eventually Jon, with the help of Odie, prevents Lord Dargis from trying to kill Prince/Garfield. Jon finds a Flyer and goes to Garfield, while Garfield and Prince meet each other for the first time. When lord Dargis finds out that Prince is still alive he tries to kill him before anyone sees. Then he threatens everyone if they don't sign the papers to him. Odie and Jon end up saving the day, and Liz and Jon get married

The castle scenes were shot at Castle in Yorkshire, England and Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, California, and most film scenes were shot at London.
