The Pack are mounted up and ready to ride. Tamara is on Shadowsong, Fallon is mounted on Moondance. They form a semicircle around Gwen and Sunstar, facing the front door. Princess Gwenevere stands next to sunstar as The King and Queen address the Jewel Riders from the front steps of the Palace. Queen Anya hands over an open golden case to Gwen. Inside are the six Wizard Jewels (see list).

GWEN

Six wizard jewels, I hope that's enough.

FALLON

It'll have to be.

KING

(helps secure the golden case behind Sunstar's saddle)

Are you sure you want to risk transporting these Jewels?

GWEN

Father, we all feel the time has come to use them. After all, Merlin said we have what we need.

TAMARA

And the Grandfather Tree was revealed to us.

FALLON

So that's where we go first.

GWEN

We'll find the way to use these Jewels

TAMARA

All we had to do is trust in Merlin.

SUNSTAR (vo)

And our friends.

QUEEN ANYA

(addresses the group)

You have had many adventures and accomplished many things. our hope goes with you that you may bring Merlin home.

Gwen shuts the box. She mounts up on Sunstar. Archie lands on Sunstar's rump.

Take care of my daughter, Archie.

ARCHIE

I'll do my best, Sire.

KING JARED

You're a good owl, Archimedes.

ARCHIE

Thank you, Sire.

Gwen on Sunstar faces her fellow questers.

FALLON

(raises her fist into the air)

To the Forests of Arden!

The Jewel Riders raise their arms in response.

JEWEL RIDERS

Jewel Power!!

GWEN

(raises her fist to the air)

Jewel Riders, let's ride!

Good luck!

CUT TO:

(2) EXT. AERIAL - FORESTS OF ARDEN - DAY Edit

A wild magic portal opens above the forests. The Dragon Wagon lurches out of the wild magic. Grimm soars the wagon down into the forests, narrowly avoiding smashing into the trees.

DWEASELS

Argoooo!

The Dweasels look seasick as they cling onto the sides of the wagon.

KALE

Dweasels, report!

The Dweasels snap to attention and point like hunting dogs.

RUFUS

We are sniffing out the magic tree.

TWIG

We are closing in.

KALE

Can you see it?!

The Dweasels leap into the front seat on either side of Kale. They look out the front of the wagon.

RUFUS

(Leaping and twirling in joy)

Not yet, but there are many smelly magical bits down here.

BOOOT! The Dweasels are booted off the wagon.

DWEASELS

Yeowzir!!

KALE

Get down there and find that tree!

The Jewel Riders ride through the dense forests. Fallon rides in front scanning with her Moon Stone.

ARCHIE

(Musing on Sunstar)

The Grandfather Travel Tree is even before my time.

FALLON

Where does it lead?

Fallon turns Moondance to face the group. Gwen raises her hand to stop the Jewel Riders.

FALLON

These forests are so full of magic, how will we ever find the Grandfather Tree?

DRAKE

We could use our Forest Stones to ask the other trees.

GWEN

Do it!

Drake and the Pack lift up their Forest Stones.

BOYS IN THE PACK

By the magic of the Forest Stone!

DRAKE

(turns and calls out to the trees around them)

Trees of Arden, can you lead us to the Grandfather Tree?

Green magic flares from the Forest Stones and bounces from tree to tree, spreading out like a wide matrix. Fallon adds her Moon Stone.

FALLON

Let the Moonstone reveal the path!

The magic of the Moonstone adds to the matrix, containing and focusing it to a narrow band. Tamara holds up her Heart Stone.

TAMARA

Let the Heart Stone show the trees our hearts are true!

The Heart Stone sends out a red Heart Beam. The beam mixes with the others fine tuning the beam into a thin line. Gwen holds up her Sun Stone.

GWEN

Let the Sun Stone light the way!

The golden sun beam joins the others, focusing the magic of the Enchanted Jewels into one s harp beam. The beam arcs into the deep forests.

ANGLE ON - A magical clearing. A huge old tree stands in the middle of the clearing. The Travel Tree insignia surrounds the tree. The magic of the Jewel Riders arcs into screen and hits the tree.

ANGLE ON - The tree is hit by the sharp beam of Jewel light. The tree sparkles. A beacon shoots out from the tree and flashes into the skies like the "Bat signa".

ANGLE ON - The Jewel Riders, in the dense forests.

In the distance, the great beam sweeps across the skies.

DRAKE

Over there!

GWEN

Let's go!

The Jewel Riders ride towards the beacon.

RUFUS

(Sniffing and leaping)

TWIG

(Leaping and pointing)

Bigger than big!

ANGLE - Dragon Wagon

KALE

Grimm, take us down!

The Dragon Wagon takes a sharp swoop and descends towards the beam.

CUT TO:

(5) EXT. MAGIC TREE GROVE - DAY Edit

The tree sparkles with magic as The Dweasels dance the Dance of joy in front of the Grandfather Tree. The Dragon Wagon lands behind the Dweasels with a CRASH/ sending the Dweasels leaping out of the screen.

Kale steps out of the wagon and faces the tree. Morgana appears from the wild magic behind Kale.

MORGANA

(Amazed at the great tree)

An ancient travel tree!

KALE

(Startled to see Morgana)

Arg!

MORGANA

(Commanding Kale)

You will ride the magic where it leads. Then all of Merlin's power will be mine.

KALE

You mean mine!

Kale steps forward to address the tree.

KALE

(Calling out to the tree)

Great Grandfather Tree, do you know who I am?

GRANDFATHER TREE

I recognize the Dark Stone.

KALE

Very good. I demand to ride the wild magic!

GRANDFATHER TREE

I cannot let you through.

MORGANA

Old Tree, the magic of the Dark Stone will not be denied!

GRANDFATHER TREE

Only Merlin can enter this magic!

KALE

I think not.

GRANDFATHER TREE

I have stood here for all time. I will resist.

KALE

Resist if you must, but you will succumb!

Kale whips the Dark Stone at the great tree. The Grandfather tree sparks with a blaze of magical fire!

ANGLE ON - The Jewel Riders ride through the forests.

DRAKE

We're picking up a strange call from the trees!

JOSH

They're calling for help.

MAX

The Grandfather Tree is under attack!

GWEN

Kale!

TAMARA

She must be trying to enter the wild magic!

FALLON

Let's move!!

The Jewel Riders move into a full gallop towards the clearing.

ANGLE ON - The Grandfather Tree's magic is fading fast.

GRANDFATHER TREE

(Dying)

Evil may not enter the Heart of Avalon!

KALE

Open the portal or die, tree!

Morgana spreads her arms wide, reaches out, and adds her magical power to the Dark Stone. Kale whips the tree with another hit from the Dark Stone. A magic portal is forced open in the base of the tree.

KALE

(Eyes wide)

Grimm, take us in!

ANGLE - The Dweasels leap aboard as the Dragon Wagon swoops around and slams into the tree portal. The portal flares with magic. The Grandfather Tree explodes in a blaze of magical bits.

ANGLE ON - The Jewel Riders arrive at the clearing. Before them lies the remains of the Grandfather Tree - A burnt out hulk of smoldering bits.

GWEN

What's happened here?!!

ARCHIE

Gaka dude!! We're too late!

FALLON

Kale's used the Dark Stone!

DRAKE

The trees are crying.

TAMARA

Oh no.

GWEN

There must be something we can do!

Drake is on the ground near the smoldering mass. Thunder stands by his side. He uses his Forest Stone like a stethoscope, holding it against the tree.

DRAKE

We can stil l feel the magic of the great tree.

TAMARA

Gwen, if your Sun Stone can help it grow, I can help heal it.

GWEN

Sunstar, let's do it!

SUNSTAR

I'm ready, Princess.

Gwen holds up her Sun Stone.

GWEN

Magic of bright Sun light; And all you have achieved; Help this tree grow back from roots to healthy leaves!

Gwen fires her Sun Stone at the burnt out hulk.

DRAKE

We add the magic of all the trees of Arden!

The pack add their Forest Stones. From the magic soil, the great tree begins to grow.

GWEN

Tamara, help us heal the great tree!

Tamara holds up her Heart Stone.

TAMARA

I call on the Heart Stone; Hear our plea; Shine out your Heart light; And heal this great tree!

The Grandfather Tree is magically reborn.

GRANDFATHER TREE

<cough> Thank you, Jewel Riders.

You must hurry, the Dark Stone has entered the Heart of Avalon.

GWEN

Can you take us there?

The portal in the tree opens but pulses weakly.

GRANDFATHER TREE

I am too weak. I can't hold open the Portal.

GWEN

Jewel Riders, let's ride the Wild Magic! Tamara, Shadowsong go!

Tamara and Shadow leap into the portal.

GWEN

Fallon, Moondance, go!

Fallon and Moondance leap into the portal. It pulses weaker, getting smaller.

DRAKE

Gwen, the portal's closing!

GWEN

Drake, we're going through! Sunstar, let's do it!

Gwen and Sunstar leap through the closing portal. Archie grabs onto Sunstar's tail.

DRAKE

Gwenevere, wait for -

ARCHIE

Whoop!

Too late. The portal has closed, blocking out the Pack before they can follow.

CUT TO:

(6) WILD MAGIC TUNNEL - SFX Edit

Gwen and Sunstar gently ride along a soft tunnel of beautiful wild magic. The magic sparkles around them. Archie has his eyes tightly closed.

ARCHIE

Ahhhhhl! Oh -

He opens his eyes and looks around at the beautiful, soft magic.

ARCHIE

Not so bad.

GWEN

Tamara! Fallon! Can you hear me? Sunstar, can you hear Moondance and Shadowsong?

SUNSTAR

No, I can't.

GWEN

(Looking around)

What kind of wild magic tunnel is this?

ARCHIE

A nice smooth one for a change.

The river of magic is moving Sunstar along at a slow pace but up ahead can be seen the wild magic rapids.

SUNSTAR

Up ahead!

ARCHIE

Doooo, I knew it was too good to be true.

GWEN

Get ready!

Gwen braces herself against Sunstar, Archie hugs Gwen, as they hit the wild magic rapids. ZOOM! They are catapulted at roller coaster speed over the rapids.

SUNSTAR

Hang on, Gwen!

ARCHIE

Can I scream now?

GWEN

Yes

ARCHIE

AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Sunstar flies over the wild magic rapids at blazing speed. The tunnel turns sharply up, then dips into dive. Sunstar spreads her wings to steady herself as she flies through the magic. Gwen rides Sunstar like a race horse as Archie holds on, eyes closed and screaming.

CUT TO:

(7) EXT. HEART OF AVALON - DAY Edit

PAN ACROSS - a misty bluff overlooking the magic lake. The Heart is very wide and open but desolate. Pink and purple mists swirl around the lake and shore. Magic flickers in the mists over the lake. Kale paces back and forth on the bluff.

KALE

Blasted Merlin, there's no lair, no buildings, no gardens! Nothing but this misty lake!

PAN OVER TO - Morgana, arms outstretched, and levitating. With eyes closed she is testing the wild magic flow and ebb, concentrating on controlling the mists. Mists swirl around her body, around her arms and flow out from her fingers. She looks at the wondrous mists trailing from her fingers.

MORGANA

This place is very magical. Look at your Dweasels.

Kale turns and sees -

The Dweasels are dancing the Dweasel Dance of Joy through the mists like demented faeries.

DWEASELS

** Dance of Joy sounds **

Grimm leaps into the dance, leaping and stepping and sending the Dweasels flying.

MORGANA

(Forming small clouds of mists with her hands)

Soon I will have all the magic!

KALE

Eh hem, not all...

MORGANA

Whatever!

Morgana turns away from camera as the mists fill the screen.

CUT TO :

(8) EXT. HEART OF AVALON - DIFFERENT SHORE Edit

Near the shores of the lake, a portal forms and Gwen and Sunstar leap out. Archie is thrown out after them. They stand on the shore of the beautiful magical lake - a very primal place, as soft mists curl around the shore extending out and over the lake.

TAMARA

Gwen! Over here!

Gwen turns Sunstar to find Tamara, Shadowsong, Fallon and Moondance riding up to them.

FALLON

Are you all right?

GWEN

Yes, are you?

TAMARA

Yes, that was some magic ride.

Archie woozily walks by as if drunk, and falls over.

ARCHIE

Tell me about it!

GWEN

(Looking around)

Where's the pack?

The girls look around. It is very quiet and serene as mists gently fall.

FALLON

I guess they didn't make it.

TAMARA

The Grandfather tree couldn't hold the portal open.

FALLON

We're on our own.

GWEN

We've got each other. That's enough!

The girls look around and see the incredible primeval lake. Tamara dismounts to study the lake closer.

TAMARA

(Walking to the lake and kneeling by the waters)

What is this place?

ARCHIE

(Joins the group)

The Grandfather tree said it was the Heart of Avalon.

Tamara reaches into the water and runs a handful of water through her fingers. The water sparkles like diamonds through her fingers. Diamonds softly twinkle up and around her.

TAMARA

(wonderment)

It's like pure magic.

FALLON

Why didn't Merlin ever tell us about this place?

ARCHIE

Perhaps he was waiting until you were ready.

TAMARA

Are we ready?

GWEN

As ready as we'll ever be. Stay alert, Kale's here somewhere.

BANG! A fireball of magic explodes near the Jewel Riders. Moondance and Shadowsong look up into the skies.

MOONDANCE

Fallon! Wild Magic!

The Dragon Wagon swoops in out of the mists. Kale whips out fireballs from her Dark Stone. Morgana stands behind Kale, hands outstretched and channeling the magic of the mists into the Dark Stone. Fireballs explode around the Jewel Riders, tearing up the beach. Moondance leaps out of the path of a fireball as it explodes.

FALLON

Look out!

A fireball whizzes over Archie's head.

ARCHIE

Gakadoot!

With the help of Morgana channeling the mists, a ring of magic swings down from the skies. Morgana levitates behind Kale, arms outstretched forcing magic power down into the spinning ring.

KALE

We've got you now, Jewel Riders!

ANGLE - The mist ring lowers down from the skies. Tamara and Shadow leap into position with Fallon and Moondance. They stand on either side of the Princess to protect her. They fire their jewels to hold back the ring. The Jewel Riders stand together as magic fire constricts around them.

KALE

Hand me the Wizard Jewels, Gwenevere, it's all over!

GWEN

You're wrong, Aunt Kale. It's just begun!

The magic is too strong. The ring is closing around the Jewel Riders. They fire their jewels to keep the noose from tightening. Archie is hopping up and down to avoid the magic fires. Fingers of magic mist reach in to grab the jewel case from Sunstar.

FALLON

Gwen, get out of here, now!

GWEN

No, I won't leave you!

TAMARA

You must save the wizard jewels!

FALLON

Hurry, Gwen, it's up to you and Sunstar now!

Gwen leaps aboard Sunstar as the misty fingers try and hold on to the jewel box. The misty fingers grab at Sunstar, magic fire flaring off of her wings.

SUNSTAR

Ahh!

GWEN

Sunstar!

Archie tries to fly after the Princess. He reaches out -

ARCHIE

Princess, wait for -

FLASH! The magic ring converges and explodes in on the Jewel Riders just as Gwen and Sunstar leap into the skies. Gwen looks back and sees Tamara, Fallon, Moondance, Shadowsong, and Archie frozen in position, all turned to crystal statues.

GWEN

Oh no!

Sunstar flies into the mist

** COMMERCIAL BREAK **

Act II Edit

(9) EXT. HEART OF AVALON Edit

The Dragon Wagon stands near the crystallized Jewel Riders. The strong magic mists have left residues swirling over the grounds.

KALE

(Admiring the frozen JRs)

Isn't this a lovely sight.

MORGANA

But the Princess got away with the Jewels!

(Screams at Kale)

Find her!

KALE

What are you going to do? Morgana is studying the mists, sweeping it through her fingers.

MORGANA

This magic is the magic of Avalon. I will make it all mine!

Kale gets aboard the Dragon Wagon

KALE

Dweasels, start sniffing!

DWEASELS

Yes!!!!

The Dweasels leap into the air, noses held high. They dance the Dweasel Dance of joy over Grimm as they jump onto the dragon wagon. The Dweasels dance as the Dragon wagon takes off into the mists. Morgana stands on the beach, arms outstretched, swirling the sparkling mists around her. Clouds of mist begin to form behind her. LIGHTNING!

CUT TO:

(10) AERIAL OVER SHORELINE - DOWN THE BEACH Edit

Sunstar flies badly over the shore. Her wing is hurt.

GWEN

Are you all right, Sunstar?

SUNSTAR

My wing's been hit, I can't keep flying.

GWEN

Take us down.

Sunstar crash lands on the shoreline of the magic lake. Gwen dismounts and hugs Sunstar, crying into her friend's shoulder.

<TINKLE>

GWEN

(crying)

We never should have left our friends. Now we're alone.

SUNSTAR

We still have each other.

GWEN

You're right. But we're lost and I don't know what we're supposed to do.

SUNSTAR

We can't let Kale and Morgana get these jewels.

GWEN

(Getting in control)

Let's think this out. Merlin had a reason for us to come here.

SUNSTAR

And to bring the Wizard Jewels. They're the key to bringing Merlin home.

GWEN

But what are we supposed to do with them?

SUNSTAR

(Looking around)

Do you hear something?

GWEN

No... wait, I do. It sounds familiar.

A soft twinkling sound is heard through the mists.

GWEN

(Taking a defensive position)

Stand ready!

Gwen holds out her Sun Stone and stands ready to protect her friend. The mists part and a small light flies through.

ARIENDA

Princess Gwenevere.

GWEN

Arienda, the faery Wraith!

ARIENDA

Princess Gwenevere, the spirit of Avalon calls to you.

The mists begin to part.

GWEN

I can feel it.

**SONG** - "Heart of the Magic"

Arienda twirls about to the music as the mists part. A thousand faery wraiths lead out like a row of tiny lights over the magical lake.

ARIENDA

Follow, follow, follow...

Arienda flies to the water's edge. There is a small boat. Gwen and Sunstar follow the wraith and get in the boat. The boat magically leaves the shore and glides into the lake, following the bright lights of the faeries. The boat is swallowed in the mists.

CUT TO:

(11) AERIAL - OVER THE MISTY LAKE Edit

The Dragon Wagon flies through the mists above the lake. The Dweasels dance like idiots on top of the dragon wagon.

RUFUS

Something is out there -

TWIG

Something so magical -

RUFUS

So fantastical -

TWIG

So mystifying -

RUFUS

So stupefying -

KALE

I can't see a thing! Where?!

RUFUS

Em eh, somewhere...

TWIG

Out there...

KALE

Maybe one of those stupid rhymes can help.

(Holds up the Dark Stone)

Use your magic, Jewel of the dark! Find the Sun Stone...

RUFUS

(Joins in)

-or I'll bark!

KALE

No!!

TWIG

(Dancing a jig)

This old Dweasel, he had a shoe...

RUFUS

(Joining in the jig)

Rhymed a ting OR two...

KALE

(Stands up, breaking up the Dweasel jig)

Those are terrible!

(Holds up her Dark Stone)

Dark Stone, hear my call! Find the Sun Stone!

RUFUS

Through the misty wall...

TWIG

And don't let us fall!

The Dark Stone fires out a beam of light that cuts through the foggy mists, pointing the way.

KALE

Not bad!

The Dragon Wagon follows the beam of light over the lake.

CUT TO:

(12) MISTY MAGIC LAKE - SURFACE Edit

**SONG** - "Heart of the Magic" - cont.

Gwen and Sunstar ride the little boat as it follows the line of faery wraiths across the magical waters. Arienda flies alongside Gwen.

GWEN

Where are we going, Arienda?

ARIENDA

To the Heart of Avalon.

ANGLE - WIDE shot of the tiny boat cruising through the misty waters following the row of tiny twinkling lights.

SUNSTAR

Gwen, look.

Up ahead the mists are parting to reveal a magical island.

GWEN

An island.

The boat gently slides up to the shore.

ARIENDA

We're here, Princess.

Gwen and Sunstar step on to the shores. A wondrous, melodic voice calls to Gwen.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

Never give up hope, Princess Gwenevere.

GWEN

(Turns to look for the wondrous voice)

Who's there?

LADY OF THE LAKE

I am the spirit of Avalon.

Gwen sees in the center of the small island a small magical lake. Gwen walks to the wondrous magical lake and looks at the surface. Sparkling lights race across the surface and converge as the shimmering image of the Lady of the Lake forms.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

I have a gift for you. All of the forces of magic have come together for this special moment.

GWEN

I have always felt that I had a great role to play but I don't know what to do.

The lights intensify on the water's surface.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

Even in the darkest hour can you find the light, that is the wonder of the Sun Stone. Into your hands I place the magic of Avalon.

Great magical sparkles run to a point in the center of the lake. Something is shimmering. Suddenly the waters part and a hand rises up holding a golden staff. The Lady of the Lake rises her arm out of the water and holds up the staff. Gwen stands in front of the staff. The staff projects out an image : The Crystal Palace shining in the sun. Golden magic shines from the Jewel Keep raining sparkly bits over the lands.Happy children play in the sunshine

ANOTHER SHOT - A great ceremony, a marriage - Gwenevere is crowned the Queen of Avalon.

GWENEVERE

This image. it's so beautiful. But I saw a different future revealed to me.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

Use this gift wisely and this will be your destiny and the destiny of Avalon.

Gwenevere reaches out and takes the staff. It glows with magic in her hands. Gwen is bathed in the glowing magic of the staff.

GWEN

I accept your gift.

(Holds the staff up in the air)

May your magic shine goodness upon Avalon, now and for evermore!

She holds it high up in the air.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

Take care, Princess, for your final task awaits you

GWEN

Please, Spirit of Avalon, tell me what to do.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

You must forge a magic jewel for this staff.

GWEN

I think I understand. These wizard Jewels must be forged as one.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

Yes.

GWEN

But how?

The image reveals the Center of the Wild Magic. The Crystal Henge is revealed, crystal pillars forming a magic circle. In the center is the forge, an aurora borealis of swirling lights. Merlin is in the center holding the magic ebb and flow.

LADY OF THE LAKE (vo)

You must travel to the very center of the wild magic. There you will make the jewel.

Gwen turns to face Sunstar.

GWEN

Sunstar did you hear?

SUNSTAR

Yes, Gwen. It's wonderful.

Gwen turns back to the water but the Lady of the Lake is gone.

GWEN

Thank you - oh.

The magical waters are still and silent. Gwen turns and walks back to sunstar.

THUNDER! LIGHTNING!!

The Dragon Wagon drops from the skies.

KALE

I'll take those jewels now!

GWEN

You will never get the magic of Avalon!

KALE

Enough! Your friends are gone. Save yourself!

GWEN

You just don't get it, do you Kale. This is not about me or you.

KALE

Who else is there?

GWEN

This is about the future of Avalon, preserving the goodness for the children!

KALE

Spare me the grisly details. What's important is what happens now, today!

GWEN

I won't give you these Jewels, Aunt Kale!

KALE

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this. But I'll destroy you if I must.

GWEN

A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

KALE

So be it.

Kale whips her Stone at Gwen. Gwen raises the Sun Stone and deflects the Dark Stone's blast. Gwen leaps onto Sunstar's back -

GWEN

Sunstar, let's go!

Sunstar leaps to the skies -

KALE

Grimm, follow that unicorn!

The Dragon Wagon takes off and flies after Sunstar. Gwen looks behind at the Dragon Wagon, but when she looks forward

BANG!! Morgana appears in the sky, right in front of her! Morgana is whirling the mists, creating a storm of magic!

ANGLE - Gwen and Sunstar fly into a hurricane force. They are whipped about in the stormy mists. Lightning flares around them.

SUNSTAR

Gwen, I can't fly!

GWEN

All right, Sunstar. This is where we'll make our stand!

SUNSTAR

I'm with you!

Sunstar is blown back, landing in the center of the island. Next to them stands the Crystal Henge, a magic circle of crystal pillars. The Dragon Wagon dives in as Morgana appears on the other side of Gwen, swirling up the mists and whipping them down. Kale whips fire from the Dark Stone.

Trapped and attacked from both sides, this could be the end of Gwen and Sunstar! Gwen holds up her Sun Stone.

GWEN

Sunstar, together!

SUNSTAR

Forever!

They fire out the Sun Stone and form a great shield. But Kale and Morgana blast the shield apart into a thousand fragments.

KALE

Ha ha ha ha! I'm coming for you now, Gwenevere!

BANG - THUNDER - LIGHTNING I

SUNSTAR

(Yelling over the storm)

I don't know if we can hold them off!

GWEN

We've got to!

Another blast of the Dark Stone. Sunstar is hit and goes down!

GWEN

Sunstar!

SUNSTAR

Ahhhh, Gwen!!

GWEN

(kneeling over her best friend)

Sunstar, hold on!!

(holds up the Staff of Avalon)

Great Spirit of Avalon, help mel

From the center of the Crystal Henge, a magic light appears. A great hulking beast leaps out of the light, roaring!

BEAST

Roar!!!!!!

GWEN

Ahhh!!

The mighty beast wears a yellow jewel that glows. The Beast swirls the wild magic into a great ball of fire and sends it hurtling back towards Morgana and Kale. The Dragon Wagon gets blasted back, over to the other side of the island. Morgana is spin around and thrown back into the misty magic. The beast roars in defiance.

BEAST

Do not fear, my Princess.

GWEN

Ranger!!

Gwen runs to the Beast and hugs him. The beast transforms back to the boy. The boy kneels before the Princess. He takes her hand.

RANGER

The magic of Avalon has called upon me.

GWEN

Oh, Ranger!

RANGER

I have pledged my heart to you, Gwenevere. I am yours to command!

She helps him up and into her arms.

GWEN

With you by my side, I know we can win!

She turns to Sunstar.

GWEN

Are you all right?

SUNSTAR

I think so.

GWEN

Thank goodness. Ranger, we have to get these wizard jewels to the center of the wild magic!

SUNSTAR

What about the others?

GWEN

Oh no, my friends -

RANGER

We can help them, together.

Gwen looks at the Staff of Avalon.

GWEN

Yes!

(13) AERIAL - OVER THE LAKE Edit

CUT TO:

Gwen and Ranger race aboard Sunstar through the mists back to the mainland. They approach the shores -

Behind them the dragon wagon flies out of the mist and chases them down.

RUFUS

(Hopping and pointing)

There they go, Witchy Thing!

KALE

After them!

Like a fighter plane, the Dragon Wagon zooms out of the skies. Kale whips fireballs at Sunstar again. Sunstar dives and avoids the aerial assault.

Sunstar dives through the mists and lands on the shore. Ranger and Gwen jump off of Sunstar and make a stand against the incoming Dragon Wagon. Gwen grabs the case of Wizard Jewels.

GWEN

Are you ready?

SUNSTAR

Yes!

RANGER

RooAARR!!

Ranger transforms into the Beast and stands ready to protect his Princess.

The Dragon Wagon closes in.

ANGLE - Kale sees the box of jewels. Her eyes go wide and turn red with fire.

KALE

I want those jewels!

GWEN

Here they are, Aunt Kale!

The Dragon Wagon dives for the Wizard Jewels. Kale stands and whips the Dark Stone. The magic shoots toward Gwen. Gwen holds up the Staff of Avalon high! On the Staff is the Sun Stone.

Powered by the Sun Stone, The Staff forms a mirror shield in front of Gwen and Ranger. Kale's magic blast reflects off of the mirror and bounces back right at the Dragon Wagon. It is encircled in Kale's own magic blaze.

KALE

Ahhh!! Nooo!! Argle!

DWEASELS

Hoogle!

GRIMM

Oh oh

The Dragon Wagon barrels down on Gwen and Ranger, but it is turned to crystal. Gwen and Ranger duck as the Dragon Wagon crashes into the beach, plowing into a sand dune. A huge furrow rips where the dragon wagon tears through the sand. The crystal Dweasels fly into the dune sticking in head first with their feet sticking out. Grimm slams into the sand dune head first, his big feet sticking out! Kale lands on top, a crystal statute standing over the frozen crystal wagon.

GWEN

You're now as cold as your heart.

Gwen turns and runs to her friends. Ranger and Sunstar follow. Tamara, Fallon and the unicorns are still frozen solid. Archie is frozen in mid-flight. Gwen sets the wizard jewel on the ground nearby. She turns to her friends and holds up the magic Staff of Avalon with the Sun Stone at the tip of the staff.

GWEN

Let the magic of Avalon help my friends!

The magic of the Sun Stone and the Staff surrounds Tamara, Fallon and the unicorns. They come back to life.

ARCHIE

- meeeee! Watch out for that!!!!??l@#$ What the -

Archie plops to the ground -

FALLON

Gwen!

TAMARA

Gwenevere.

Gwen hugs both girls. Archie forces his way into the hug and hugs Gwenevere.

ARCHIE

Princess, thank goodness you're all right.

Fallon and Tamara look up at Ranger.

FALLON

Gwen, who's that?!

GWEN

This is my friend, Ranger.

FALLON

(Definitely interested)

Hello!!

RANGER

Hello, it my pleasure to help the Jewel Riders.

Tamara sees the frozen Kale, and piled up Dweasels and a big frozen Grimm tail and foot sticking out of the dune.

TAMARA

Look, it's Kale. What's happened?

GWEN

She's stone cold.

MORGANA (os)

Wonderful, wonderful!!

The girls turn around to see a magic portal opened in the air. The jewel case is being raised into the air by Morgana's magic fingers.

FALLON

Gwen, the jewels!

ARCHIE

Good Gak, man!

GWEN

No!!

Too late! Morgana has them in her hands.

MORGANA

I owe you a debt of thanks, Jewel Riders. Not only have you given me the jewels but you've gotten rid of that thorn in my side, Kale, once and for all. Now onward to the Center of the Wild Magic!! Ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Morgana vanishes into the swirling portal.

FALLON

The Wizard Jewels!

GWEN

Oh, no, what have I done?

The Jewel Riders stand on the shore as the magic portal closes, leaving them trapped.
