It's 1649: Mazarin hires the impoverished D'Artagnan to find the other musketeers: Cromwell has overthrown the English king, so Mazarin fears revolt, particularly from the popular Beaufort. Porthos, bored with riches and wanting a title, signs on, but Aramis, an abbé, and Athos, a brawler raising an intellectual son, assist Beaufort in secret. When they fail to halt Beaufort's escape from prison, the musketeers are expendable, and Mazarin sends them to London to rescue Charles I. They are also pursued by Justine, the avenging daughter of Milady de Winter, their enemy 20 years ago. They must escape England, avoid Justine, serve the Queen, and secure Beauford's political reforms. Written by
Swashbuckling action, comedy capers and rollicking adventures, bigger and better than ever. They're back... all for one and one for all!

Contrary to his role as an antagonist in this film, in the book Rochefort has actually become a close friend of d'Artagnan. They only come at odds in the book because d'Artagnan is a Cardinalist and Rochefort a Frondeur, who helps the Duc de Beaufort escape from prison (as shown in the film) and eventually takes up arms against Mazarin in the book, in which action he is accidentally killed by d'Artagnan.
