ACT 1 Edit

(1) ESTABLISHING SHOT - EXT. - GREAT FORESTS - DAY Edit

VERY FAST PAN across thick old-growth trees. Sunlight sparkles between the leaves and branches as we race through the forest.

CLOSE UP - racing hooves pound over dead leaves and mud on a barely-visible trail.

PAN UP - to MOONDANCER running all-out through the dense forest.

Fallon leans into the unicorn as if she has been aerodynamically sculpted onto MOONDANCER's back for maximum speed. The magnificent animal has an instinct for split-second timing as she leaps over fallen branches and logs.

The sound of a WILD HOWL is heard. Another howl echoes across the vast forest, joining with the first. Fallon turns and looks quickly behind her.

MOONDANCER

They're almost on us!

FALLON

Take dead man's bluff.

MOONDANCER

Are you sure?

FALLON

Are you?

MOONDANCER

Of course.

MoonDancer lowers her horn and leaves the trail, running straight for a huge section of tree trunks. At the last minute, the unicorn veers around an enormous tree as mud and debris fly under her hooves. Fallon leans into the turn, as if she were riding a super fast motorcycle.

The howls grow louder.

In front of Fallon and Moondancer looms an opening in the forest floor, a deep and dangerous chasm. Primeval morning mist rises from the open pit, lending an ominous feel to the glacier-carved gash in the earth.

FALLON

Let's do it!

The unicorn does not slow up, but instead increases speed.

Moondancer reaches the edge and makes the leap. The unicorn just makes it to the other side, one back hoof skidding off the cliff face. Without missing a beat, MOONDANCE spins down a dirt trail, heading for a clearing.

OVERVIEW - MOONDANCER races into the clearing without slowing. She's well into the clearing when three shapes also enter the clearing, from another side. They are behind and racing to catch up to the fast Moondancer. It is the Wolf Pack. Drake races on Thunderbolt, Josh on Stormrunner, and Max on Shadow.

At the far end of the clearing can be seen two small poles with abanner stretched between them. The crystal Carriage is parked to one side. Harmony and the baby animals (Sugar, Spike and Cleo), and King Jared sit waiting. Goliath stands nearby.

HARMONY

(jumping up)

Here they come!

The babies leap to their feet. King Jared is on his feet. Goliath stands in eager anticipation. We see now that it is a race. Three wolves and Moondancer running at full out speed for the banner.

HARMONY

Go Fallon!!

SPIKE

Go Moondancer!

SUGAR

(can't contain herself as she flies about in circles)

Yea! Look at them go!

Cleo hops up and down with excitement.

CLOSE - FALLON bent so low, she is practically melded onto the speeding Moondancer. Unicorn and rider run as one, perfectly tuned to each other.

The three wolves are closing -

JARED

(moving his arms in excitement)

Go, go, go!!

Moondancer flies across the finish line, Fallon raising her arms in victory as they rip through the banner.

FALLON

(finally letting loose)

Yeah!!

The three wolves follow.

Harmony and the babies run to Moondancer as Fallon leaps off the unicorn in a graceful bound. Harmony gives Fallon the high five.

HARMONY

Wow, you two are amazing.

The babies all hug Moondancer and Fallon.

SPIKE

Fantastic!

SUGAR

(soaring around in excitement)

You were flying!

Fallon hugs Moondancer and smiles.

FALLON

(to Moondancer)

You were great!

MOONDANCER

We are a great team, Fallon.

The wolves are there now, boys stay mounted.

DRAKE

(complaining)

No fair - King Jared, they leaped Dead man's bluff, that's not on the course.

FALLON

Sore loser, Drake?

KING JARED

(laughing)

Drake, you can't blame them for taking a little initiative - I'd say they showed courage and the skill to back it up.

HARMONY

That's right. You did great Fallon.

FALLON

Come on Drake. No hard feelings?

Fallon extends her hand to Drake.

Drake reluctantly shakes hands. Drake then grins broadly.

DRAKE

You actually leaped Dead Man's Bluff! That was really great!

KING

All right, let's set up the next event.

JOSH

Yeah, free style trick riding - that's my thing.

FALLON

(laughing, she is in her element)

Well, you'll just have to prove it!

The boys and King ride off leaving Harmony and the babies with Fallon and Moondancer.

FALLON

Thanks for coming out and cheering us on, guys.

(looks around)

Say, where's Gwen?

HARMONY

Home, packing. She's volunteered to represent the Queen at a naming ceremony.

FALLON

Sounds like the perfect job for our Queen-in-training. Boring -

HARMONY

Urn, well, not quite.

FALLON

What do you mean?

HARMONY

Gwen's volunteered us along as well.

FALLON

No way!

MOONDANCER

Fallon, we are bound to protect the Princess.

FALLON

From what!? Some starry-eyed nerd who dances on Gwen's feet! That's Archie's job!

HARMONY

Sorry, Fallon, Queen-in-Training's orders.

FALLON

We'll see about that.

CUT

(2) EXT. EST. CRYSTAL PALACE - DAY Edit

The Palace sparkles in the mid-day sun.

(3) INT. GWEN'S ROOM Edit

Gwenevere's bedroom is a mess, every surface covered with another glittering ballgown, every drawer and armoire door open. A trunk is open on the floor with some clothes hanging out. ARCHIE is trying to help GWEN by walking around and picking up everything Gwen drops. Gwen throws another garment down.

Archie walks over and picks it up, neatly placing it back on the shelf. Gwen looks back at the shelf, picks up the same gown, looks at it and tosses it back on the clothing stack on theground.

ARCHIE

Doowhie!

Gwen holds up two gowns and looks at Amber. Amber stands looking over the dutch door into Gwen's room.

GWEN

Star, which do you think is prettier?

AMBER

You'll look beautiful in both of them.

GWEN

You're right. I'll take both.

Gwen throws the dresses into the trunk accidentally catching Archie and knocking him into the trunk under the clothes.

SFX: KNOCKING ON DOOR.

FALLON (vo)

Gwenevere?!

Fallon strolls in, tracking in dust and grime. Gwen wrinkles her nose at all the dirt being tracked in. She is holding a dress she has just picked out

GWEN

Fallon, you're tracking dust all over my things.

FALLON

Why am I being sent to Castle Greenwood!

GWEN

Lady Robbins had a girl, isn't it wonderful?!

FALLON

That is wonderful, but I'm scheduled for field games with the Pack.

GWEN

Oh, you can run with the Pack any day.

(trying to be cute)

That cute Lord Batton will be there-

FALLON

Lord Batton is a stuck up clod!

GWEN

(holding the dress up in front of Fallon for size)

You make it sound like attending a party with handsome guys is punishment.

FALLON

(pushing the dress aside)

Dancing and flirting - That is what you do best. Let me do what I do best!

GWEN looks offended. Archie pops up onto the edge of the trunk, a frilly hat on his head.

ARCHIE

Girls, girls, now there's no need - doowap!

Gwen tosses the gown she has been holding into the trunk, knocking him back in.

GWEN

You're going. Mother thinks it's a good idea. She knows best.

Tight on Gwen and Fallon. They are pissed!

CUT

(4) INT. NURSERY Edit

Bath time. There is a sunken bathtub in one corner of the Nursery. Harmony wears a bib over the front of her clothes (leisure, no shoes). She sits on the side, feet in the water, washing the baby lamb's fluffy fur.

Cleo is in the bath. Spike swims about with his toy boat. Sugar stands to the side on the edge of the tub.

SUGAR

Cleo, check out my new song - I call it -

Splash Dance!

Sugar dramatically yodels like Tarzan as she performs a belly flop right into the center of the tub. Baby lamb giggles.

CLEO

That was Ba-a-a-ad.

SUGAR floats on her back over to Cleo, blowing out a spurt of

water like a little fountain.

CLEO

Sugar, you are so gross!

HARMONY

Stop annoying Cleo, Sugar.

Cleo walks out of the tub, nose held high in the air. Harmony dries lamb into a furry fluffball.

Gwen and Fallon can be heard arguing down the hall.

FALLON (O.S.)

(shouting over previous action)

No one knows what's best for me, but me! And contrary to what you think, your mother does not know everything!

The babies turn their heads in the direction of the yelling.

GWEN (vo)

(shouting)

Take that back!

FALLON (vo)

No!

SPIKE

Fallon and Gwen sure sound mad at each other.

HARMONY

They're friends. They'll work it out.

FALLON

(shouting in distance)

Fine! And I don't want to talk to you either!

SFX: DOOR SLAMMING.

FX WIPE

(5) TRAVEL TREE RING - NEAR THE BADLANDS· - LATE AFTERNOON - Edit

Setting looks like a western movie setting, aka Arizona, New Mexico.

The Travel Trees flash to crystal, then a flash of light appears in the center of the ring.

The Jewel Riders and Chooga with the Crystal Carriage, emerge in the flash of light. Jewel,Riders are powered up. Jewel Riders power down.

Outside the ring, waiting for them, is DENNAN, leader of the caravan. Tall, handsome, he's dressed for adventuring. He sits atop his mighty steed.

DENNAN

Princess Gwenevere. I'm Dennan. We're camped just around the bend.

FALLON

There are at least four hours of light left, shouldn't we be on our way?

DENNAN

There's been reports of outlaws. Nothing to worry about, but I'd rather wait until morning to go through Wizard's Pass.

GWEN

Fine. Lead on, Dennan.

Fallon has already taken the lead and is around the bend, leaving the group behind.

CUT

(6) TRANSFORMATION OF CARRIAGE Edit

The Crystal Carriage, parked in its camping spot, transforms into the tent.

DISSOLVE

(7) EXT. CRYSTAL CARRIAGE/TENT - CAMPING SITE - NIGHT. Edit

The Crystal Carriage is opened into tent mode.Crystal rocks glow in the small campfire out front. In the distance, we see other crystal campfires from other members of the caravan.

Chooga sleeps next to the camper. A few people exit scene waving to the Princess and Dennan. Gwen stands in doorway of carriage. Dennan talks to her from outside.

DENNAN

I'm afraid everyone wanted to say hello. You are most gracious, Princess.

GWEN

No problem, I'm used to it. Good night.

DENNAN

Good night.

Dennan walks away. Gwen turns and enter the camper.

Inside Harmony is tucking the babies into their fold-down beds. Sugar folds her wings around herself (sleep mode). Archie adjusts his sleeping cap. Gwen plops herself down on her fold-down bed.

GWEN

Whew, I'm beat! I must have shaken a hundred hands.

HARMONY

It's not everyday you get to meet the Princess.

GWEN

It's true, all this admiring and bowing and "oh, I'm so excited to meet you" - Hey, someone's got to do it-

HARMONY

Oh, you love it.

Harmony playfully throws a pillow at Gwen.

GWEN

Hey!

Gwen throws the pillow back at Harmony. Harmony ducks and it hits Spike. Spike jumps up and throws two pillows at Cleo.

PILLOW FIGHT! The babies are up and jumping, pillows are flying! Amber looks in window and bats a few pillows back inside.

ARCHIE

Girls, girls, this is no way to behave - Floooop!

WHAM! Archie gets socked with five pillows. The girls and babies are laughing and screaming with delight, tossing pillows everywhere, filling screen with feathers.

SFX. A Knocking at the door.

Everyone pops up from under a sea of pillows and feathers (except Archie).

WINERVA (VO)

Princess Gwenevere?

GWEN

(gets up and walks to door)

Oh oh, someone forgot to pay their respects to the most gracious Princess.

Another pillow goes flying out the door as Gwen pulls back the flapfdoor.

GWEN

(laughing)

I'm Princess Gwenevere.

Winerva stands in the doorway as if unsure of her welcome. Winerva is a craftsmaster in the Weaving guild, her Master insignia is embroidered on her sleeve. She wears a feminine yet practical outfit in bright colors.

WINERVA

(eyeing the mess of pillows and feathers)

I'm sorry to disturb you, but I was told that Fallon would be here -

Gwen looks to Harmony.

HARMONY

She's out scouting with Dennan's riders. I'm Harmony.

WINERVA

Oh, Harmony. I've heard you perform.I'm so pleased to meet you in person.

HARMONY

Thank you.

WINERVA

I'm Winerva, Fallon's mother. The girls look at each other incredulously -

GWEN

We had no idea you were traveling with us, Fallon never mentioned -

WINERVA

I'm sure Fallon never talks about Alfred or me.

HARMONY

Alfred?

WINERVA

Fallon's father. We haven't seen her in a few years-

GWEN

A few years! Bu - that's terrible - you come right in - I'm sure Fallon will be back any minute.

Winerva sits primly on a stool. Sugar, Spike and Cleo pop up to inspect their guest. They smile at Winerva.

WINERVA

Oh.

Winerva smiles back uneasily.

ARCHIE

Floopoi!

Archie pops out from under a pillow. Winerva is startled.

ARCHIE

I am Archimedes. My dear lady, it is indeed a pleasure.

Archie bows.

WINERVA

The pleasure is mine. This carriage is remarkable. Absolutely stunning.

GWEN

You are very kind.

HARMONY

May I offer you some tea, Winerva?

WINERVA

Thank you.

CUT

(8) EXT. - CRYSTAL CARRIAGE - NIGHT Edit

**Dialouge under scene**

WINERVA (O. S.)

These dresses, Princess, you have wonderful taste.

GWEN (0. S.)

Yes, this is an original design from Paneenie -

WINERVA (O. S.)

(very impressed)

No, the Master himself?!

GWEN (0. S.)

The one and the same. Look at these.

WINERVA (0. S.)

Oh may I?

Fallon is taking off Moondancer's saddle and riding gear. From inside the carriage, warm light glows and laughing and giggling are heard. Fallon looks up at the noise.

FALLON

(walking up the steps)

We're not even there, and Gwen's partying already.

Fallon steps inside.

FALLON

It's late, party's over!

She sees the girls having a ball, holding up dresses, tossing gowns, even the babies are wearing pretty scarves and gowns that have been tossed and draped about. Archie wears a frilly hat and shawl, preening around like a little model on a catwalk.

Gwen turns and stops laughing -

GWEN

Fallon, look who's here to see. you-

Lowering a beautiful gown she had been inspecting, Winerva turns and reveals herself.

WINERVA

Hello, Fallon - Mother!

FALLON

(shocked)

WINERVA

It's good to see you -

FALLON

Is Father here too?!

WINERVA

(uneasy)

He's in our wagon, you know your father - so stubborn - I wish you'd come and talk with him.

FALLON

I'm very tired, Mother!

WINERVA

Oh I'm sorry I didn't realize how late it was - Perhaps tomorrow -

FALLON

Maybe, good night.

Winerva walks past a stone cold Fallon and exits.

WINERVA

(final turn before exit)

It was very nice to meet all of you.

GWEN

Winerva, the pleasure was ours. Good night.

Fallon stares at Gwen and Harmony. Gwen is all over her.

GWEN

How could you be so rude!? To your own mother?!

FALLON

(very angry)

You knew they'd be here and you deliberately made me go! I hate you for this, Gwenevere!

Fallon storms out of the tent and slams the door.

GWEN

Fallon, come back here!

HARMONY

Gwen, let her go. She's very upset.

GWEN

I don't get it.

The babies are anxiously looking out the door.

HARMONY

(to babies)

All right, everyone to bed! Right now!

The babies jump into their beds.

CUT

(9) EXT - CARRIAGE - NIGHT

Fallon is crying softly into Moondancer's mane.

FALLON

(crying)

You're the only one who truly understands me.

MOONDANCER

I understand that if you hurt, I hurt also.

Fallon wipes her tears on Moondancer's mane.

FALLON

I don't want you to hurt. I love you more than anything, Moondance.

MOONDANCER

I love you too, Fallon. Nothing can ever change that.

FALLON

* sniff * I know.

Wide sweeping pan of the valley (Death Valley western style). The caravan is making it's way across the valley floor towards the pass between two mountains.

Pan up the mountain to-

(11) EXT. - CAVE MOUTH - DAY Edit

The dragon wagon sits in the back. Grimm sparks the small campfire with this dragon breath. Kale stands to one side.

A nasty outlaw CIVELLO kneels over the drawing he made in the sand. Civello is pointing with a crystal arrow.

CIVELLO

My men are stationed here - and here - we can pick off the wagons with ease.

KALE

That's fine, Civello. But I wouldn't count on such ''easy pickings". Not with Jewel Riders along.

CIVELLO

Ha har - Jewel Riders - Without Merlin, they haven't a clue as to how to use those Enchanted Jewels.

KALE

Yes, well they have an uncanny knack of figuring out what to do. Just make sure no harm comes to the Princess - the Princess is mine! Do you understand?!

CIVELLO

Perfectly.

CUT

(12) EXT. - BADLANDS Edit

The caravan is making its way through the mountain pass. The Crystal Carriage drives in front of Winerva's and Alfred's wagon. Archie sits up front with Harmony. Gwen rides along side.

Fallon watches the carriage pass. Winerva stops her wagon in front of Fallon.

WINERVA

Alfred, looks who's here.

ALFRED

Humpf.

WINERVA

Fallon, it was so long ago, can't we just forget -

FALLON

That was the most important day of my life when I entered the Friendship Ring. This is Moondancer, by the way, in case you're interested.

WINERVA

My, such a magnificent creature.

FALLON

She is not a creature! She is my best friend!

ALFRED

We wanted the best for you, Fallon

FALLON

That's exactly what I got! No thanks to you!

WINERVA

Please Fallon, let's not fight anymore.

Fallon spots movement coming from the mountain ridge as outlaws take positions.

FALLON

Moondancer, do you see that?

MOONDANCER

Yes.

FALLON

We've go to go.

Fallon turns Moondancer and races off.

ALFRED

(shaking his head)

She never could sit still, no patience.

An arrow swishes through the air and thuds into the wagon side!

DENNAN (vo)

AMBUSH!!!

QUICK CUTS

Men and woman outlaws shoot crystal arrows into the mountain pass. Men and woman outlaws scurry down ropes. Crystal arrows rain down on the wagons.

CIVELLO and KALE watch from a mountain ridge. Civello laughs.

(14) CRYSTAL CARRIAGE Edit

Gwen and Amber race up to the Crystal Carriage. The babies are peeping out the front window behind Harmony and Archie.

GWEN

Jewel Riders, let's ride!

Amber leaps into the skies, her mighty wings powering her above the wagons.

Gwen and Amber swoop over Dennan. He is mounted and directing the wagons as they pull into a circle.

You take care of the wagons! We'll take care of the outlaws!

Amber swings up into the skies.

Another sweep of arrows arc into the skies.

GWEN

Ready, fire!

Gwen and Amber fire their Jewels and wipe the beams across the sky, crumbling arrows to dust.

AMBER

Shield yourself, Gwen!

A barrage of arrows comes in from the other side.

Amber swings around. Gwen holds out her Sun Stone. A swirling pixie dust projects from the Jewel, forming into a magic power shield (see design). The shield holds in front of Gwen and Amber. The arrows strike and crumble to bits.

AMBER

Good move.

GWEN

We'll have to remember that one.

CUT

(16) WAGON CIRCLE Edit

A few straggler wagons in the back are moving up to the caravan circle.

Fallon on Moondancer race past the circle toward the rear wagons.

They're attacking the last few carts.

FALLON

By the Magic of the Moon Stone!

Fallon and Moon Stone power up as they race into the camera.

ANGLE ON SIDE OF MOUNTAIN

Outlaws 1, 2, 3 and 4 are sliding down four ropes.

FALLON

Moondancer, let's give them a little rope to play with.

Fallon and Moonglow pull up and fire their Moon Stones at the ropes.

The outlaws leap to the bottom, avoiding the beams, and draw their swords at the oncoming unicorn. But suddenly, behind the outlaws, the ropes they came down on, come to life and like pythons, catch the outlaws, wrapping around them, lifting and bouncing them about, upside down.

OUTLAWS

Ahh!/ Help!/ Cut the ropes!

CUT

(17) WAGON TRAIN - CLOSE SHOTS Edit

Men are trying to calm down the horses and bears.

Harmony runs from animal to animal among the wagons, calming the animals. She uses the soothing magic of her Heart Stone to calm them down.

HARMONY

(to one animal)

Easy -

(to another)

Don't be frightened.

VOICE (O.S.)

Down, boy! Harmony, over here!

Harmony dashes off to another wagon.

Fallon comes riding by her parents wagon. She sees Winerva and Alfred taking cover under their wagon.

WINERVA

Fallon, are you all right?

FALLON

Fine, are you two all right?

WINERVA

Yes, I think so.

ALFRED

What has this kingdom come to when a peaceful caravan can't even travel to a simple naming ceremony!

FALLON

Stay here, until it's over.

WINERVA

Be careful, dears.

FALLON

We will.

Fallon expertly rears Moondancer up, turns the unicorn and they charge away.

CUT

(18) EXT. MOUNTAIN CAVE - OVERLOOKING VALLEY Edit

CIVELLO doesn't look so good as he watches his men being routed by the Jewel Riders. Kale stands next to him, her cape flying in the breeze.

CIVELLO

I don't believe what I'm seeing -

KALE

I told you they were good.

CIVELLO

We're not through yet.

KALE

You will be soon, if you don't start listening to me.

CIVELLO

What do you have in mind?

(19) LEAD WAGON - CARAVAN Edit

Gwen lands Amber near Dennan. Fallon rides up.

People cheer them from the caravan.

DENNAN

I don't know what we would have done if you weren't here.

GWEN

No problem.

DENNAN

I think we should try and make a run through the pass. Once through we'll be in the clear.

FALLON

We're ready when you are.

CUT

(20) EXT. WIDE SHOT OF WIZARD'S PASS. DAY Edit

The caravan charging towards the opening in the pass. Gwen and Amber swoop over the caravan waving them forward.

GWEN

So far, so good.

DENNAN

(driving his wagon with gusto)

We're almost through!

FALLON

(racing along side the wagons)

Keep the wagons moving!

ANGLE ON CRYSTAL CARRIAGE

Harmony drives Chooga. Archie sits next to her.

ARCHIE

This is terrible, Merlin would never stand for such common rustling.

HARMONY

Well, I'm afraid that Merlin isn't here to do anything about it.

CUT

(21) WIDE SHOT OF CARAVAN Edit

They are almost through.

ANGLE ON MOUNTAIN

Suddenly a dark purple beam whips across the top of the pass. The other mountain top explodes. The ground trembles as rocks start falling. Avalanche!

DENNAN

Hold up those wagons!

The wagons pull to an abrupt halt. Rocks tall into the pass blocking the way out. Gwen flies over the Crystal Carriage -

HARMONY

Gwen, Did you see that?

GWEN

There's only one person I know who can create a magic blast like that - Kale!

HARMONY

What would she want with a caravan of goods?

GWEN

I'm going to find out. Let's go, Sunstar.

Amber takes off into the air towards the mountain.

ANGLE ON FRONT OF CARAVAN - DENNAN talks to Fallon as they inspect the fallen rocks.

FALLON

There's too much rock to blast through. Is there another way?

DENNAN

Yeah, we'd better get moving.

CUT

(22) WAGONS BREAKING THE CIRCLE AND FORMING INTO LINE. Edit

Fallon rides by the wagons herding them in the right direction. She rides by her parents wagon and slows up to ride with them.

ALFRED

That's some outfit you got there.

FALLON

Like it?

ALFRED

Is that Jewel Armor?

FALLON

Yes, our Enchanted Jewels give us magic armor that protects us.

Winerva is startled that her daughter could be in danger.

FALLON

(for her Mother's benefit)

We mostly use it to ride the wild magic.

WINERVA

Ride the wild magic, isn't that dangerous?

FALLON

(big grin)

It's incredible, there's nothing else like it!

Moondancer rides magic like a champ!

WINERVA

Moondancer, we're very pleased to meet you.

MOONDANCER

I am pleased to meet you as well.

FALLON

She says she is pleased to meet you.

WINERVA

It must be wonderful to talk with a magical animal.

FALLON

It is. I love Moongdancer, she wouldn't let anything happen to me.

MOONDANCER

That's right.

WINERVA

You're so lucky to have such good friends.

There is a moment of awkward silence as Fallon realizes she is communicating with her parents.

FALLON

(looking down)

We should be checking out the rest of the wagons.

ALFRED

Right.

Fallon takes off.

MOONDANCER

They seem nice.

FALLON

Well, they are my parents after all.

CUT

(23) EXT - RIDGES ALONG THE MOUNTAIN TOPS - DAY Edit

Gwen on Amber fly into the screen searching -

Gwen flies on into the trap.

ANGLE ON FALLON

Fallon is riding alongside the wagons searching the hills for another attack. She puts her hand over her brow to shield the sun and sees something - GRIMM's head behind a rock outcropping.

Gwen is heading there but doesn't see him yet. Kale steps up in the front of her dragon wagon and is about to whip her Dark Stone mat the unicorn and rider.

FALLON

Gwen! Behind you!

MOONDANCER

Sunstar! Look out!

Kale whips out a power blast. Gwen grabs on as Amber does a twisting, sideslip combat maneuver. The power blast misses but hits a rock blowing it to bits.

FALLON

Moondance, tell Sunstar to follow us!

Moondancer's horn flashes light.

ANGLE ON AMBER AND GWEN -

AMBER

Moondancer is calling us to follow them.

GWEN

Go!

Amber glides in low over the desert towards Moondancer. Grimm and Kale chase Gwen and Amber about to blast again.

KALE

Follow them!

ANGLE ON -

Fallon bends over Moonglow's neck as the two race away from Grimm towards the mountain side.

Outlaws are now making their way down the mountain side on many ropes.

Grimm flies into screen.

ANGLE ON -

FALLON

Moondancer, why don't we send Grimm a message.

MOONGLOW

Certainly.

CLOSE ON GRIMM as he hears the message.

MOONGLOW (vo)

Grimm, my rider says you smell like a skunk brush.

GRIMM

(surprised)

Huh?

KALE

Don't listen to them Grimm, I like the way you smell.

MOONGLOW (vo)

And you have dragon breath!

GRIMM

(insulted)

Erg....!?!

Grimm blasts a burst of flame at Fallon without slowing. The flame arrows down into frame, chasing Fallon and Moondancer.

Include outlaws 1, 2 and 3 climbing down ropes. Fallon and Moondancer race past the outlaws. The flame hits the ropes. The ropes all smoke and break. The outlaws look at one another and scream. They tumble to the ground.

AMBER swoops in behind Fallon and Moondancer.

KALE

Grimm, after them!

Like a cowpony, Moonthing comes to an abrupt halt, then spins around to face the approaching Grimm.

FALLON

(holding up her Moon Stone)

Jewel of illusion, hear my call where once there was nothing build me a wall.

Directly in front of Fallon and Moondancer, it looks like one wall of the pass has shifted, creating a box canyon - a dead end, hiding Fallon, Moonthing, Gwen and Amber completely.

GRIMM

Huh?!

Grimm arrows straight up, flapping madly, to avoid the wall he believes is there.

KALE

(struggling to hold on)

No, Grimm, it's just an illusion!

Amber flies low over Moondancer.

GWEN

Pretty fancy, Fallon.

FALLON

How'd you do that magic shield thing, that was very cool.

GWEN

I'll show you later.

The girls look at each other for a moment. Gwen swings Amber into the skies. Fallon turns Moonglow back to the caravan.

CUT

(24) CRYSTAL CARRIAGE Edit

Fallon rides past the Crystal Carriage. She Powers Down.

FALLON

Everyone all right?

HARMONY

So far.

Fallon pulls up next to her parents wagon and rides alongside.

ALFRED

Do you always have this much excitement on a typical day?

FALLON

Well, maybe not this much.

ALFRED

Are you sculpting any more, Fallon?

FALLON

I don't have much time for crafts, now-a-days - I'd like to though, I mean, one day, go back to it.

ALFRED

I just hate to see talent like yours wasted.

WINERVA

The girl has talents in many areas, Alfred.

FALLON

Father, I need to find my own way, find what's right for me.

ALFRED

We're artists, we create, it is in our blood.

FALLON

But I do that with Moondancer. Together we create... magic.

ALFRED

Magic is not the work of a true artist!

FALLON

It is if it comes from my heart.

ALFRED

Look, Fallon, that day, your Friendship Ring Ceremony - That was my fault, your mother wanted to go but I forbade it, I had no idea how important it was to you.

FALLON

Daddy, neither did I.

Fallon smiles at her parents.

CUT

(25) EXT. - MOUNTAIN TOPS Edit

Gwen on Amber is searching for Kale. Amber spots a group of outlaws nearby.

AMBER

There's the outlaws.

GWEN

What are they up to?

A group of Civello's men fire arrows at Gwen and Amber.

AMBER

Hang on!

To avoid the arrows, Amber dives around a bend in the mountain. Amber turns into her dive - Too late. They fly into a trap -

A giant magic net has been strung between the outcroppings and rocks. Amber slams into it like a fly into a spider's web.

GWEN

Agg, I can't move!

AMBER

Neither can I!

CIVELLO stands looking down upon them, hands on hips.

CIVELLO

Not such a big deal now, Jewel Rider!

MEN

Ha har.

CIVELLO

Maybe we'll just hold you for ransom, at least we'll get something out of this raid.

The dragon wagon swoops in from the skies, a hook on the bottom grabs the net and swings it out into the skies over the pass.

KALE

I think not, Civello. Thanks for your help, as feeble as it was.

CIVELLO

What about my booty!!!

KALE

Better luck next time!

GWEN

Let us go, Kale!

KALE

We meet again, Princess, but his time you're stuck with me.

GWEN

I can't believe you've resorted to caravan raids.

KALE

You think I want wagon booty?! Ha ha It's Merlin's key I want!

CUT

(26) EXT. - VALLEY Edit

The Crystal Carriage, Fallon on Moondancer stand by with Dennan on his horse.

MOONDANCER

Fallon, it's Kale!

HARMONY

Oh no, she's got Gwen!

DENNAN

We'll never reach them!

Moondancer rears up.

FALLON

(assuming a "Zorro"-like pose)

By the magic of the Moon Stone!

They Power Up and take off like a rocket. Moondancer heads straight up the right-hand mountain side, racing up the cliff.

The dragon wagon is almost at the end of the pass, near the rocks that block the pass.

ANGLE ON -

Fallon bends over Moondancer's neck like a jockey as they leap over rocks, racing higher up the mountain.

FALLON

We can do this.

MOONDANCER

Hold on sunstar, we're coming!

ON CLIFF TOP - FALLON AND MOONDANCER

Moondancer heads straight for the top of the mountain and makes the leap. The unicorn flies out across the pass just as the Dragon wagon cross the rocks.

Fallon leaps from Moondancer and soars through the air, using gymnastics to spring as far as she can.

Moondancer lands on the opposite mountain top.

TIGHT ON DRAGON WAGON

Fallon FALLS INTO FRAME as she comes out of a tuck and just barely manages to grab the edge of the side ''wing" of the Dragon Wagon.

PULL BACK

Grimm staggers in the air at the additional weight, and the Dragon Wagon lurches to one side.

TIGHT ON FALLON

as she grabs for the net, trying to jerk it free.

INCLUDE KALE

Kale turns and whips a blast from her Dark Stone at Fallon. Fallon loses her grip on the Dragon Wagon and falls, but has a grip on the net. The net rips from the weight and Fallon swings down to the length of the net.

ON FALLON, GWEN, AND AMBER

As Fallon swings at the end of the net,

CLOSE UP

Gwen struggles to free her Sun Stone.

FALLON

(holding up her Moon Stone)

Get ready, Gwen!

GWEN

Do it!

Both girls fire their Enchanted Jewels, shredding the net.

Amber and Gwen fall away. Amber's wings spread, and the unicorn dives to catch Gwen.

Fallon holds on to a slim strand of net still attached to the dragon wagon. She tries to climb back up.

Kale whips a Dark Stone blast but the blast hits a disk of light, the magic power shield, created by the combined power of Gwen and Amber's Sun Stones - which bounces the blast straight back at Kale.

PULL BACK

The purple magic beam blast is being pushed back towards the dragon wagon by Gwen and Amber.

FALLON

Gwen!

The net breaks sending Fallon tumbling toward the ground, 50 feet below!

GWEN

(to Amber)

Go!

Amber dives in a vain attempt to save the falling Fallon but they are just too far away.

GWEN

Fallon, use your Moon Stone, hurry!

ON FALLON

as she falls closer and closer to the ground, she closes her eyes and clutches her Moon Stone. A silver power shield erupts around the girl.

Gwen dives down holding out her Sun Stone.

GWEN

Do it, SunStar!

Gwen and Amber fire their Sun Stones to increase the strength of Fallon's magic power shield.

ANGLE ON FALLON

as she hits the ground. There is a large SFX magical explosion as the shield explodes on impact. Instantly she is powered down.

Gwen runs to Fallon where she lies on the ground, eyes closed.

GWEN

Fallon, are you all right?

Tight on FALLON. Her eyes flutter open.

FALLON

Now I know another thing my Moon Stone can do. Thanks, Gwen.

GWEN

You're welcome.

ANGLE ON THE DRAGON WAGON as it swoops over the pass.

KALE

Blasted Jewel Riders! Grimm, take us to Castle Thornwood! The next time I'm going to get serious!

CUT

(27) EXT. ESTABLISHING SHOT - CASTLE GREENWOOD - SUNSET Edit

The castle is all lit up in celebration of the new heir.

CUT

(28) INT. - MAIN BALL ROOM Edit

Crowd scene reminiscent of the Naming Ceremony in SLEEPING BEAUTY.

Harmony and the babies just finish singing and dancing their naming Song on the performance stage. They bow to applause.

Lady Robbins holding her new baby in her arms works the crowd.

ANGLE ON ALFRED, WINERVA AND FALLON.

ALFRED

Fallon, what you did today was the bravest thing I've ever seen anyone do.

FALLON

Thanks, Daddy.

WINERVA

Queen Adrianna was right. A Jewel Rider is who you are.

ALFRED

We're proud of you, daughter.

WINERVA

And we've missed you very much.

THEY HUG together.

FALLON

I've missed you too. I love you, both.

WINERVA gently turns Fallon and points to -

WINERVA

Dear -

ANGLE ON GWEN

Gwen has just finished schmoozing with a Lord and Lady. Gwen touches up her hair and looks around for all the boys.

FALLON

(walking up beside Gwen)

Gwen, I did something really awful today.

GWEN

You danced with Batton?

FALLON

Worse, I said some terrible things to a friend.

GWEN

If she's really your friend, she'll forgive- you.

FALLON

I'd like that.

GWEN

Me too.

The girls hug. Gwen notices the guys walking up.

GWEN

Oh oh, here comes the guys -

She steps out, ready to do her duty as Princess -

DENNAN

Could I have the pleasure of this dance Gwen is about to accept when-

DENNAN

- Fallon?

FALLON

I'd be delighted.

BATTON

Fallon, you promised the next dance to me!

GWEN

Oh well, that's the way it goes...

Archie marches boldly up to the Princess. He has something important on his mind.

ARCHIE

Now look here Princess, it is simply terrible for two such good friends to fight!

GWEN

Archie, you are absolutely right.

ARCHIE

I am?

GWEN

Dance with me, you handsome owi!

Gwen swoops up the bemused Archie and dances into the crowd, swinging into a waltz.

ARCHIE

Hoopla!
