PRINCESS GUINEVERE and her JEWEL ADVENTURES

"Travel Trees Can't Dance"

Act IEdit

(1) EXT. - EST. DRAGON BEACH - OBSTACLE COURSE Edit

Zoom back from a dangerous looking rock arch jetting up over the water near the beach. A series of arches are in the distance laid out like a slalom or flying obstacle course.

AMBER comes ZOOMING in headed straight for the opening in the first arch. Gwen is on Amber's back, down low on Amber's neck for better aerodynamics and maximum speed.

Amber and Gwen's POV - The flying unicorn and girl zoom towards the small opening in the rock. Gwen's long hair flies in the breeze behind her.

The unicorn dives -

Gwen closes her eyes -

SPLASH

They fly through the opening, skimming the top of the water as they go through. Amber open's her wings and takes them up into the skies. Gwen raises her fist in triumph...

GWEN

Yes!

GWEN leans over and hugs Amber's neck.

GWEN

Amber, that was great. You're flying like a champion.

AMBER

We make a great team, Gwen.

AMBER

Let's try the next one!

GWEN

OK Amber, go for it!

Gwen crouches low in the saddle and takes a firm hold of the handlebar.

AMBER

Heeeeere we goooo!

Amber tucks in her wings and dives down towards the second rock arch. This one is a tunnel. The opening of the tunnel comes out into a rock wall. The only way around the wall is to swerve radically around it like a slalom skier. They approach the arch. Gwen crouches low as they dive into the tunnel. As they come out, Amber serves dramatically. Gwen tries to hang on - Amber swerves one way, Gwen is thrown the other way and falls into the surf.

AMBER

Wheeeee!

GWEN

Yeehaa.....aaarrgh!

CUT

(2) EXT. - DRAGON BEACH Edit

Amber stands on the shore. Gwen wades disconsolately out of the water wringing out her beautiful riding jacket.

GWEN

Look at my beautiful coat. I'm soaked!

AMBER

Balance and control. That's what Fallon says.

GWEN

(she's had it)

Let's head back to the Crystal Palace. It's a long flight and we're late.

(she gets a great idea)

I know, we'll use the travel trees.

AMBER

Travel trees, but we've never ridden the wild magic before.

GWEN

I've ridden the magic lot's of times.

AMBER

But not without the others. Fallon and Moonglow told us to wait until they teach us.

GWEN

Oh, Fallon is such a know-it-all.

AMBER

I don't know...

GWEN

We're Jewel Riders now. Merlin grew the travel trees for the Jewel Riders to use. All we need is our Sun Stone.

AMBER

All right.

CUT

(3) EXT. TRAVEL TREE RING - NEAR THE BEACHESEdit

Gwen and AMBER stand in the center of tree ring. GWEN holds up her Sun Stone

GWEN

By the magic of the Sun Stone, I call on the Trees of Merlin, strong and true.

The Sun Stone gleams. THE TRAVEL TREES activate and become jeweled trees.

TREE

We recognize the Sun Stone worn by Princess Guinevere. Where do you wish to go, your Highness?

GWEN

(beaming)

We wish to go to the Crystal Palace, if you please, great trees of Merlin.

AMBER

Princess, shouldn't we use our armor... Harmony always says safety first.

GWEN

I was getting to that. By the magic of the Sun Stone!

The Sun Stone sparkles and GWEN and AMBER transform into Jewel Riders.

GWEN

Ready, Amber?

AMBER

Ready.

The portal opens, a light flares and GWEN and AMBER flash out.

CUT

(4) SFX - WILD MAGIC RIDE Edit

GWEN and AMBER ride down the tunnel of wild magic. The magic flows around them as the fly down the river. Gwen has her eyes shut and hugs onto Amber's neck. Amber looks determined as she veers to keep them steady against the buffeting wild winds in the magical tunnel.

AMBER

Hang on, Princess.

GWEN

Don't worry, I am!!

CUT

(5) EXT. - TRAVEL TREE RING AT CRYSTAL PALACE Edit

Harmony, Fallon, and Archie, with Cleo, Sam, and Rusty are waiting with Moonglow. Archie lounges under a lovely shady bush. Fallon brushes Moonglow's mane.

FALLON

(annoyed)

Where is that girl?

HARMONY

I know I told her to meet us here at noon.

ARCHIE

I, for one, am enjoying a little peace and quiet.

SAM

Wintermane!

QUEEN ADRIANNA and WINTERMANE walk up from the gardens. The babies bound over Archie to get to the beautiful white tiger. Sam bounces off Archie ' s stomach and lands on Winter's back.

ARCHIE

Doof!

SAM/CLEO/RUSTY

Hi, Wintermane.

WINTERMANE

Hello, little ones.

QUEEN

Hi girls, aren't Gwen and Amber with you?

HARMONY

Your Majesty, they went off to practice their flying. They'll be here shortly.

FALLON

(annoyed)

We've been waiting for almost an hour!

QUEEN

(chuckling)

I think they're just a little over excited to finally be Jewel Riders, like you.

Suddenly the Travel Trees turn crystal. A portal opens.

FALLON

Now what?

The lights dissipate and there stands Gwen and Amber.

HARMONY

Gwen, Amber, you used the trees on your own!

GWEN

Hi everyone, sorry we're late. Mother, you should have seen us,we flew like-

The Travel Tree effect flares up except this time the sound turns sour and dissonant. Gwen and Amber disappear.

FALLON

What happened?

HARMONY

I don't know.

ARCHIE

You dumb tree, what happened to the Princess!?

TREE

Who?

QUEEN

Great trees, where did you send the Princess?

TREE

The woods are dark and deep, and in the woods strange beings creep.'

ARCHIE

What?!

TREE

There seems to be a problem with our magic.

ARCHIE

I'll say, you knotheads!

QUEEN

Great trees, concentrate. The Princess and Amber. Where did you send them?

TREE

We are experiencing temporary technical difficulties.

ARCHIE

Dooo!

QUEEN

Ever since we lost the seven Crown Jewels, the magic all over Avalon hasn't been working right. I hope Gwen is all right.

FALLON

Don't worry, we'll find her. Come on, Harmony.

QUEEN

The babies can stay with me.

SPIKE/CLEO/CLEO

Yay! Yippeee!

HARMONY

All right, if you promise to behave-

SAM

We're all yours, Queenie.

Harmony mounts up behind Fallon.

ARCHIE

Wait for me!

HARMONY

By the magic of the Heart Stone.

FALLON

By the magic of the Moon stone.

The girls power up.

FALLON

Great trees, take us to the Princess, please.

TREE

We will try.

ARCHIE

Dooo, I hate riding the wild magic!

The light in the travel ring flashes and the girls, Moonglow and Archie are gone.

CUT

(6) EXT. - TRAVEL TREE RING IN THE NORTH WOODS Edit

A light flashes in the ring. Gwen and Amber leap out of the portal.

GWEN

Oh my, Amber are you all right?

AMBER

Yes, but what happened?

GWEN

I don't know.

Gwen turns to trees.

GWEN

Mighty Trees of Merlin, can you tell us where we are?

TREES

Wild magic is loose, ta-dum ta-day, who knows what happens, ha-hum, ha-ray!

GWEN

Pardon?

TREES

We advise you not to travel today.

GWEN

Why?

TREES

The Hare is socked in, boarding passes are turning blue and violets are red and so are you!

AMBER

These Trees are not themselves.

GWEN

Let's fly up and take a look around.

AMBER

Alright.

CUT

(7) EXT. - SOARING OVER THE FORESTS Edit

Amber and Gwen soar above the trees. Pink clouds are rolling in.

GWEN

I think we're in the North Woods. It looks like the Crystal Peaks over there.

Pan across the clouds to the huge walls of the Crystal Maze. The Crystal Maze appears as a series of vast slabs of crystal, the size of office buildings, covering area as big as a city. Mostly of a uniform height, say around 500 feet, and spaced about the same distance apart, except towards the center where the spacing narrows down considerably. The maze is not entirely regular in structure however and there are pinnacles and juts and breaks in the walls.

AMBER

Gwen, that's not the crystal Peaks.

GWEN

I think you're right. And what's with these clouds?

AMBER

Gwen, I feel wild magic, very intense.

GWEN

We should call the others.

AMBER

We're too far away to call.

GWEN

I-don't want to use the travel trees until we find out what's wrong with them.

Amber approaches the pink cloud mass. In the mass are the huge canyons of the crystalline maze. Visualize the Grand Canyon crossed with Manhattan cityscape.

AMBER

Wow, this thing is huge.

GWEN

Let's go in for a closer look.

GWEN and AMBER dive into the clouds.

CUT

(8) EXT. - CRYSTAL PINNACLE ABOVE THE CLOUDS Edit

Kale and Grimm are perched on a crystal pinnacle projected through the pink cloud cover. Pinnacles jut out of the clouds all around them like huge crystal stalagmites.

RUFUS

Oh Witchy One, there is great wild magic here.

KALE

I can see that. Do you think there's a Crown Jewel in there?

TWIG swirls some pink fog in his fingers, smells it, and tastes it... it foams out his ears.

TWIG

Looks like magic... Smells like magic... Tastes like... yeich!

RUFUS

(to Twig)

Did you see that big fly?

TWIG

A great big fly flying by -

KALE

That's not a fly, you Dweasel! That's my niece, Guinevere and the flying unicorn!

Kale mounts up in the wagon.

KALE

Grimm, follow them. But not too close... We'll let them find my jewel for me.

The dragon wagon takes off and dives after the unicorn.

CUT

(9) EXT. TRAVEL TREE RING - GREAT DESERTS Edit

This is a desert oasis with palm tree travel trees. MOONGLOW leaps out of the portal. ARCHIE holds on with his eyes closed.

ARCHIE

Dooowap!

FALLON pats Moonglow.

FALLON

Good ride, Moonglow.

HARMONY

We're in the Great Deserts. I can't sense Amber anywhere. Moonglow, can you reach her?

MOONGLOW

No. She's nowhere around here.

HARMONY

Great trees of the desert, can you tell us why you sent us here?

TREES

No.

ARCHIE

That's it?!?! No?

TREES

No.

ARCHIE

That's better, I - doooo!

HARMONY

We ask you with the greatest of respect and politeness to help us find the Princess Guinevere and her unicorn Amber.

TREE

There is an outbreak-- our roots are all jumbled.

ARCHIE

You can say that again.

TREE

Our roots are all jumbled -

ARCHIE

Dooo! Why I ought'a-

FALLON

You must try and help us find the Princess.

TREE

All righty.

The lights flare up and Harmony, Archie, Fallon and Moonglow are gone.

CUT

(10) PINK CLOUDS Edit

Amber and Gwen are flying inside the cloud mass along the huge walled maze.

GWEN

This looks like a giant maze.

Brief shots of Amber and Gwen flying through the pink fog... now we see them, now we don't. Suddenly a flash of light appears in the distance. Then a wild magic quake erupts as puffs of pink clouds blow out from the center of the maze.

AMBER

There, did you see that?

GWEN

Right in the center of this maze. Let's go.

The big pink clouds roll over Amber and Gwen. Wild magic shakes and shimmies.

GWEN

(caught in the turbulence)

Aah!

AMBER

Hold on.

Bouncing, booming music can be heard in the distance.

AMBER

Do you hear something?

GWEN

It's coming from over there.

Music is booming along, but sounds muddy like it was being strained through a filter. They dive out of the clouds to find -

GWEN

What in Avalon is going on?

(11) WILD MAGIC GARDEN PARTY Edit

Suddenly they break out of the fog into a wild magic garden ballroom. The ballroom has been formed by flowers, trees, and greenery. The forest has been twisted about, gone nuts, but in a beautiful way. The place has the feel of a jungle nightclub setting from the 1930's.

The dance floor is filled with dancing animals and a swing band on stage belts out boogie woogie from the 1930's. The Music is clear and loud.

AMBER

Whoa!

Amber slides to a halt. Gwen slips down to her feet.

GWEN

Wow!

A beaver announcer welcomes them and gives them a dance card.

BEAVER

Welcome, welcome... to the Northwoods garden party. I'm sorry but this is a formal affair.

Gwen's clothes are magically transformed into a sparkling, magical, beautiful Princess party dress.

GWEN

Oh, it's lovely.

A purple spotted hippo in a tutu grabs Amber and whirls her off.

The man sized fox wearing a white tux and bow tie sweeps Gwen off of her feet.

FOX

(in exaggerated French accent)

May I have zis dance, cherie?

GWEN

Eeeek!

Shot pulls back to leave Amber and Gwen helplessly dancing with frenzied wildlife.

CUT

(12) EXT. - PINK CLOUDSEdit

The dragon wagon glides in the clouds. They can hear the music, dimly, booming away below, but can't see anything but the pulsating fog. RUFUS and TWIG are nose tapping to the beat.

KALE

What is going on down there?

TWIG

Dig the crazy beat of Magic Street.

RUFUS

Gotcha, I love that swinging Wild magic sound-

KALE

You stupid Dweasels - Get down there and sniff it out!

CUT

(13) WILD MAGIC GARDEN PARTYEdit

This party is smokin'! Cover shots of Gwen dancing up a storm with various party animals. Amber steps lively as well. Twirling, dancing, animals jump and jive.

(14) EXT. PINK CLOUDS Edit

Shot of a small Montgolfier type balloon slowly sinking down into the pink fog. Hanging below it is a gondola just big enough for a pair of dweasels. Two dweasel noses poke out, sniffing.

RUFUS

(tapping his nose to the beat)

Da da da, dum da, da dada dum.

TWIG

Smell dat' wild magic jive!

RUFUS

Hey, I'm hip to this trip, Twigster!

TWIG

Em, Rufus, isn't this balloon supposed to float?

The gondola crashes down on the ground. A crocodile dances by, grabs Twig and whisks him out of the gondola.

CROC

Let's dance, cute stuff!

TWIG

Yeowzir -

A giant chicken is dancing with Rufus already. We can see Amber still whirling around with her Hippo friend. Gwen dances by with the Fox in a tux. Croc throws Twig (now in a zoot suit) around in wild jitterbug fashion a la the 40's and 50's. Twig gets bounced to the ground and thrown up in the air, falling on his nose.

TWIG

Aaarrgh, you big bloated thing...!

Suddenly the Magic Quake returns, puffs of pink clouds spew out over the ballroom. The clouds roll in covering everything. The whole scene jumps and shakes... the music clatters to a stop. Thefog clears and all the animals and musical instruments are gone. Amber and Gwen are leaning on each other, exhausted.

AMBER

You ever had a hippo step on your hoof?

GWEN

No, but now I've seen a fox doing the fox trot. That was wild!

AMBER

Wild magic!

The dweasels scurry about, this way and that.

GWEN

Look over there, I thought I saw a Dweasel.

The Dweasels leap back into their gondola. It lifts off the ground.

TWIG

We were too quick for them.

RUFUS

We will follow them like the Dweasels we are.

CUT

(15) EXT. PINK FOGEdit

Amber and Gwen fly into the thickening fog. They fly within feet of the Dweasel balloon but the fog is so thick, no one can see the other.

GWEN

Which way did those Dweasels go? I can't see a thing.

AMBER

How's this?

Amber's horn lights up sending a beacon out into the mist. The horn traces a beam out. In the distance can be seen a bright light, the source of the outbreak.

GWEN

There! Let's check it out.

Behind them come the Dweasels in their balloon.

TWIG

I smell a Crown Jewel.

RUFUS

Oh joy.

Amber and Gwen fly on towards the light. They see a wide amphitheater type space. The sounds of singing can be heard. In the center is a travel tree ring. The trees are activated and in the center the portal is open. Pink fog escapes from the portal.

GWEN

A travel tree ring!

AMBER

The doorway is wide open!

GWEN

It could be causing the problems with the Travel Trees.

AMBER

Not to mention dancing hippos.

CUT

(16) EXT. - BROKEN TRAVEL TREE RINGEdit

Gwen and Amber land in the travel tree ring. Above the rim of trees floats a Crown Jewel suspended between the treetops. The trees are moaning and groaning and trying to sing.

TREE

I can't dance, you can't make me. I can't dance 'cause I'm a tree.

GWEN

Mighty trees of Merlin, are you all right?

TREE

We can't dance. We can't shut the door.

AMBER

Gwen, the wild magic is flooding out uncontrolled.

GWEN

What do we do?

TREE

Shut the door.

GWEN

How?

AMBER

Gwen, up there.

GWEN

A Crown Jewel. Let's go.

Gwen head for the treetops. They approach the jewel from below and are about to grab it... the Dweasel balloon floats down out of the fog with Rufus dangling out of the gondola. Twig holds him by his Dweasel feet. Rufus grabs the jewel.

RUFUS

Twig, I've got it. Up, quickly!

GWEN

Alright you Dweasels, hand over that stone.

RUFUS

Never!

Gwen raises her Sun Stone.

TWIG

Well, maybe.

Rufus pokes a hole in the balloon and it shoots off like a rocket.

TWIG

Eiieieieiei.

Gwen shoots out a beam and grabs the Dweasel balloon, holding it fast.

RUFUS

Eeek!

A purple beam shoots down from above and grabs the balloon from the other side. Suddenly the dragon wagon drops out of the skies.

TWIG

Double eeek!

KALE

Hand over that Crown Jewel, Dweasels!

Kale pulls the Dweasel balloon up with her Dark Stone. Gwen pulls back.

he gondola shatters between the force of the magic stones. The balloon bursts with a loud "Pop". The Crown Jewel is dislodged and sails into the air.

KALE

Dive, Grimm, dive!

The dragon wagon zooms down after the Jewel.

GWEN

Amber, the Jewel!

Amber and Gwen fly down. The Dweasels fall, wailing... and land in a mud hole.

RUFUS/TWIG

Fafaphooie!

The Dragon Wagon and Amber head on a collision course to catch the falling Jewel. Kale whips a Dark Stone "net beam" at Amber. The beam hits Amber and covers her making it impossible for her to fly.

AMBER

I can't move my wings!

The dragon wagon swoops in and Kale grabs the jewel like an outfielder pulling in a fly ball.

KALE

Now the magic will be mine!

Kale's Dark Stone erupts in power. Amber spirals down. Gwen falls off.

GWEN

Ahhh!

Gwen and Amber vanish. They tumble into the open portal of wild magic. The travel tree portal closes shut.

** COMMERCIAL BREAK **

Act IIEdit

(17) SXF - WILD MAGIC RIDEEdit

Rivers of wild magic flow towards the screen. Amber and Gwen go tumbling head over heels down the wild magic.

GWEN

Ahh, Amber!

AMBER

I'm here, Guinevere. Try and reach me!

GWEN

(struggling)

Almost there.

Gwen tumbles over to Amber. She grabs Amber's saddle handle and flings herself over onto the unicorn's back. Amber opens her wings to steady herself against the turbulence of the ride. Her wings collapse under the magical pressure and they tumble upside down.

GWEN

Help us!! Travel Trees, if you can hear us... Help!!

AMBER

Hang on, Princess!!

They tumble off as the screen fiares to white

CUT

(18) EXT. TRAVEL TREE RING - JUNGLESEdit

Fallon, Moonglow, Harmony and Archie are standing in a Travel Tree ring. Around them is the great rainforest jungle.

ARCHIE

Dooo, you stupid trees, you've been bouncing us around the entire kingdom! Where is she?

TREE

Who?

ARCHIE

Who?! Princess Guinevere!

TREES

She rides the wild magic. She has shut the door.

HARMONY

What do you mean?

TREE

We are feeling much better now, thank you.

FALLON

Can you take us to the Princess?

TREE

We will try.

The lights in the travel tree ring open brightly and the group pops out.

CUT

(19) EXT. - PINK CLOUD MASSEdit

The dragon wagon is cruising through the pink clouds. They enter a section of dangerous looking peaks jutting out from the clouds.

Kale is trying to connect the two stones together. Every time the stones touch, they spark and flare sending flashes of wild light through the pink fog. Rufus and Twig keep the wagon from hitting the nearby peaks by pushing off with their feet.

KALE

With this Jewel, I should be able to control all of this wild magic.

RUFUS

Hard to port!

TWIG

No, that way... that way.

Suddenly the dragon wagon runs aground, stuck between two twin peaks.

KALE

Arg, you ninnies, why don't you watch where we're going!? Get out and push!

Rufus and Twig look down into the misty voids. They look at each other.

TWIG

Watch out for that first step.

RUFUS

After you, Twig.

KALE

Never mind. Crown Jewel of the Northwoods! Obey me!!

Kale reaches up and slams the stones together. Magic power flares out. The peaks explode. Grimm is stunned by the force of the blast and drops the wagon.

Kale is thrown out of the wagon. She slides down one side of the peak. The dragon wagon slides down the other side.

KALE

Ahhhhhh!!!

RUFUS/TWIG

Aieieieiaiai!!

Kale slides on her butt into a bush. The dragon wagon with the Dweasels slides into a mist covered lake. The wagon floats for a second.

RUFUS/TWIG

Whew!

GRIMM comes sliding down on his belly crashing into the lake on top of the Dweasels. Bubbles break the surface of the lake.

CUT

(20) EXT. - TRAVEL TREE RING - NORTHWOODSEdit

AMBER and GWEN appear in the tree ring (same as scene 6).

GWEN

Amber, are you all right?

AMBER

I think so.

GWEN

We're back in the Northwoods. Great trees, thank you for helping us.

TREE

Our pleasure, your Highness.

GWEN

Are you feeling better?

TREE

Much, thank you.

AMBER

Gwen, I sense something.

The travel tree portal opens and Moonthing leaps out.

HARMONY

Gwen! Amber!

FALLON

Hey we found you!

ARCHIE

Princess! Oh -

Archie leaps into the Princess's arms. Gwen hugs Archie. Archie blushes.

GWEN

I'm so glad to see you all.

The girls share a group hug around the unicorns with Archie in the middle.

FALLON

Didn't I tell you not to ride the wild magic until we could teach you?!

HARMONY

Are you all right?

GWEN

Yes, yes. I'm sorry I worried you. It would have been fine, but the trees weren't working right.

ARCHIE

We know.

GWEN

But I found a Crown Jewel!

ARCHIE

Oh my!

GWEN

It was stuck in a travel tree ring. The wild magic was just pouring out uncontrolled!

ARCHIE

Oh no!

HARMONY

A Crown Jewel. We've got to get it into Merlin's jewel box.

ARCHIE

Yes, yes!

GWEN

Kale's got it.

ARCHIE

Gak!

AMBER

I danced with a hippo.

ARCHIE

Dooooo!!

Archie faints.

Flashes of power flare in the distance.

FALLON

What was that?

MOONTHING

Wild magic!

GWEN

It's coming from the maze.

HARMONY

What maze?

GWEN

The magic made this whole section of woods grow crazy. Kale's in there.

FALLON

We've got to get that Crown Jewel back.

GWEN

Let's go!

CUT

(21) EXT. - SHORE OF THE MISTY LAKEEdit

Grimm lies on his back as the Dweasels jump up and down on his belly. Water squirts out the dragon's mouth like a spouting fountain as the dweasels jump up and down.

RUFUS

(jumping)

Dumb dragon is water logged.

TWIG

Wake up dragon!

GRIMM

BELCH!

Grimm belches a smoke cloud covering the dweasels in smoke. Eyes blink open in the smoke.

RUFUS

I think he's better.

TWIG

Much.

CUT

(22) EXT. - PLATEAU OVERLOOKING MAZEEdit

Amber, Moonthing, Gwen, Harmony, Fallon, and Archie look down from the plateau.

FALLON

Wow, this place is too big. We could use the Pack's help.

HARMONY

There is a way to call the Pack.

GWEN

We're too far away.

HARMONY

The Horn of Merlin.

GWEN

What's that?

HARMONY

Merlin told me about it. We have to combine all of our Enchanted Jewels together.

ARCHIE

This is legendary magic, only used to call the Pack.

GWEN

Form an Enchanted Jewel circle.

The three girls raise their Jewels.

HARMONY

(sing songy)

From legends of old,

We call on the horn of Merlin,

Wise wolves whose memories run-long,

Hear our song, come to us who need you.

The lights from the three stones creates a large magic French horn.

The horn rings out into the air.

CUT

(23) EXT. - THE GREAT WOODSEdit

The Pack is riding through the trees. The Horn of Merlin is heard. All of the Forest Stones light up at once. Drake raises his arm to halt the Pack.

DRAKE

Wolf Pack, hold up!

THUNDER

Drake, I hear something.

DRAKE

What is it?

THUNDER

It's the great horn of Merlin.

DRAKE

The Horn of Merlin hasn't been heard in years. And Merlin's lost in the wild magic.

JOSH

Drake, Storm says he hears it also.

THOMAS

So does Shadow.

THUNDER

Whoever sings to the Forest Stones, the pack must obey.

DRAKE

What is this all- HEY!

The pack vanish in a flash of green light.

CUT

(24) EXT. - PLATEAUEdit

The Pack arrive in a green flash. Before them stands the three girls, unicorns, and Archie.

GWEN

We did it!

DRAKE

What the- How'd we get here?

>MAX and JOSHUA look around in amazement.

THUNDER

The Horn of Merlin brought us here.

DRAKE

Princess, Fallon, Harmony, are you all right?

GWEN

So far.

JOSH

(looking out over the forests)

Look at this mess.

THOMAS

Wild magic!

HARMONY

Exactly.

DRAKE

The horn of Merlin, how did you do that?

GWEN

(teasing)

Drake, didn't you now you're always at my beck and call.

DRAKE

Yes, well, what's the situation?

(25) EXT. - MAZE GROUNDEdit

Kale wanders in the maze on the ground.

KALE

Rufus, Twig, can you hear me? Ooh, where is my dragon wagon?!

Frustrated, Kale sits on a rock. She takes out the Crown Jewel of the NorthWoods and holds it up.

KALE

There must be a way to release this power.

Kale holds up her Dark Stone in the other hand.

KALE

Great Jewels, give me magic!

Nothing happens.

KALE

Dooo&#!$@

A thick pink mist rolls in, beckoning, calling, to Kale. Soft music follows.

Kale follows the pink cloud into the wild magic garden party ballroom.

KALE

What is this place?

Waltz music is heard. A waltzing bear spins over and whisks Kale around in a dance.

KALE'

'Unhand me, you idiot!'

BEAR

Ahhh... you're so lovely when you dance...

KALE

Yes, well I've been known to step out now and then- Wait a minute, what's going on?! It's wild magic... Ha ha... That's it! This stone of the Northwoods keeps the trees green, lush... and happy?! Hmmmm, think... happy... thought... eichyuk.

Kale is magically transformed into the Queen of Avalon, wearing the Queen's long dress and crown.

KALE

Lovely.

Kale now takes control and spins the bear around. As she dances the Crown Jewel lights with power.

KALE

How about something a bit more upbeat?

With a wave of her hand, the music drastically changes to a hard driving rock and roll beat. Suddenly a herd of dancing wildlife comes out of nowhere and starts rocking and rolling around her.

KALE

Yes, I believe I'm getting the hang of this.

Kale spins, whipping the Crown Jewel around and around sending magic flying everywhere. The animals spin faster around her. The ground shakes and erupts. Cracks open up in the ground.

KALE

Yes, yes, yes!!!

Kale spins. The magic flares and - Thorns break out of the ground. They keep sprouting. More and more of them. Thornwoods grow out of control.

KALE

Much better.

Thorns are growing all around her. Kale whirls to a stop.

KALE

Stop! I command you!

The Thornwoods stop sprouting. The animals are gone. All is quiet.

KALE

Much, much better.

CUT

(26) EXT. - EDGE OF THE THORNWOODS WALLEdit

The Pack screech to a halt in front of the newly grown Thornwoods.

DRAKE

Thornwoods! Kale's Dark Stone at work.

JOSH

We know how to deal with this.'

DRAKE

Wolf Pack, Let's do it!

The pack raise their Forest Stones.

PACK

By the magic of the Forest Stones!

The green light from the Forest Stones slices down a swathe through the Thorntrees.

DRAKE

Let's move out!

CUT

(27) INT. - THORN TREESEdit

The Group rides out into a clearing. Drake holds his hand up to stop everyone.

GWEN

Keep sharp, she could be anywhere.

KALE

Oh, I'm somewhere, all right!

Kale leaps up from behind a rock and fires a blast from the two Jewels. Thorn trees grow up out of the ground and close in on the good guys.

FALLON

Look out!

Gwen and Amber fire their Sun Stone at the thorn wall. The wall is deflected and diverted away.

DRAKE

Good one, Gwen. We have to get close enough to get the Jewel.

FALLON

I'll try an illusion with my Moon Stone.

DRAKE

Right.

HARMONY

Careful, Fallon.

Fallon dismounts and holds up her Moon Stone.

FALLON

Moonless sky so dark has grown, make me disappear, Moon Stone.

Fallon goes invisible.

CUT

(28) EXT. - ROCK BUNKEREdit

Kale is holed up behind a rock. She casually flips the Crown Jewel from hand to hand.

RUFUS

Oh witchy witch, are you there?

KALE

Rufus! Where are you, you Dweasel?!

Fallon, invisible, creeps up on Kale.

TWIG

We are flying in the dragon wagon.

KALE

Quickly, get me out of here!

Kale tosses the Crown Jewel in the air but it is grabbed before it lands in her hands.

KALE

What the?!

Fallon's Moon Stone is ignited by the Crown Jewel. Fallon becomes visible.

FALLON

Oh oh.

Fallon takes off and runs into the maze.

KALE

Stop! Come back with my Crown Jewel!! Rufus, Twig, get my jewel back!!!

CUT

(29) WILD MAGIC GARDEN PARTY BALLROOMEdit

Fallon runs into the ballroom. Klieg lights flare. Fanfare starts up. Spotlights arc over along winding staircase right out of a 1930's Fred Astaire movie.

A waltzing dweasel smoothly dances his way down the stairs. It's Rufus transformed in a Fred Astaire Dweasel complete with top hat and tails. He stops in front of Fallon and bows low. His top hat rolls down his arm to be caught in his little paw. He spins the hat back on his head.

RUFUS

Would you? Could you? Should you?

FALLON

What the?!

RUFUS and FALLON waltz around the ballroom. TWIG slides about the ballroom like a little Ginger Rogers Dweaselette. Rufus takes Fallon into a dip and spins her around. Jewel flies out of her hand -

Twig gracefully glides over and catches the Jewel -

TWIG

Oh joy, a Crown Jewel!

BOOM! The dragon wagon lands with a crash in the center of the ballroom.

KALE

Ayeyiyie, dancing Dweasels, now I've seen everything!

The Dweasels waltz over. Kale grabs them by their necks and jerks them back and forth.

RUFUS/TWIG

Ugalah ugalah ugula

The jewel pops out and Fallon dives into a great gymnast move, tumbling in the air to catch the jewel. Moonglow leaps into the ring.

MOONGLOW

Fallon!

Fallon leaps onto the great unicorns's back and they take off.

KALE

After them!

Grimm takes off, flying low, just above the thorntrees.

CUT

(30) EXT. - MAZEEdit

Fallon and Moonglow race around corners through the maze. The dragon wagon closes in. Moonglow runs into a closed corner of the maze. DEAD END.

Fallon swings Moonglow around and faces the oncoming Grimm. Grimm closes in.

KALE

Nice moves, Fallon, but I'll have my jewel back now.

FALLON

[censored]

KALE

Tsk tsk... Grimm, if you please.

Grimm tries to belch fire, but only a water bubble pops out.

GRIMM

Ooops

CUT

(31) EXT. - SKYEdit

Amber, wings folded, swoops in like a hawk from the sky. Gwen is crouched down over her back.

GWEN

Fallon! Fallon, throw it to me!

Fallon tosses the jewel to Gwen, who catches it one handed.

KALE

Ooooh! Grimm! After that unicorn!

Amber pulls up from the dive and soars into the air. The Dragon Wagon pursues Amber and Gwen through the maze, flying close alongside huge walls of crystal, twisting and turning through gaps and narrow places. They are in the heart of the maze now and the gaps are narrower. (ala "Star Wars" Death Star finale)

Dragon tries to sideswipe Amber and throws his body sideways in the air at her as he catches up. She dodges and he misses, knocking into the side sending chunks flying and hurling into the screen.

KALE

Well, well, I see the unicorn has learned to fly. Very nice Guinevere dear, but hand me that Jewel before I have to get nasty.

GWEN

This Crown Jewel belongs to Merlin.

KALE

Well, Merlin's gone. The jewel is mine!

Ahead is a series of rock formations, much like the obstacle course in the beginning but more difficult.

AMBER

There's no other way out!

GWEN

Just like at Dragon Beach. We can do it.

AMBER

Let's do it!

Amber folds her wings and shoots down towards the narrow hole in the first rock. Amber zooms through the narrow space with her wings folded up. Shot continues with Amber pulling up about ten feet off the ground and flying out straight with wings at full-extension.

Grimm and the dragon wagon soar through. They crash right through, exploding pieces of rock fragments everywhere, but they make it.

GRIMM

A ha!

Coming straight at them is a slalom course like the opening. Amber swerves on a dime around a hairpin turn. GWEN leans into it... hanging on.... maintaining her balance. They make it!

Grimm follows... Grimm swerves.... Rufus, Twig, and Kale lean into the move but the dragon can't make it. The wagon goes tumbling one way, Kale goes another, the Dweasels somewhere else. Crash sound effect and wild yells!

CUT

(32) EXT. - TRAVEL TREE RING IN CENTER OF MAZEEdit

Gwen, Amber, Fallon, Moonglow, Harmony, plus the pack are gathered around. Gwen holds up the Jewel of the Kingdom.

HARMONY

We've got to get it back in Merlin's jewel box.

GWEN

But that's in the jewel keep at the Crystal Palace. And Kale will be on us long before we can get there.

ARCHIE

Dooo, If only we had Merlin's Key.

HARMONY

Merlin's Key?

GWEN

What's that?

HARMONY

Merlin's magic key.

GWEN

You mean this?

He pulls key out of her secret pocket. Archie's eyes bug out.

ARCHIE

Merlin's key!!

GWEN

It's my good luck charm. It always reminds me of when Amber and I found each other.

ARCHIE

Quickly, try touching the jewel to the key.

HARMONY

Archie says to touch the key to jewel.

GWEN

Like this?

Gwen touches jewel with key.

The Crown Jewel glows. In the magic glow the jewel box appears. The lid opens and Gwen puts the stone into the setting marked for the Jewel of the NorthWoods. The matrix lights up. Merlin's face appears in the glow.

HARMONY/FALLON

Merlin!?

MERLIN

Well done, my students. You've found the first missing Crown Jewel and restored the balance to at least one section of Avalon. The power of the Crown Jewel has allowed me to briefly visit. I'm proud of you.

ARCHIE

It's good to see you, Merlin.

HARMONY

Stay with us, please.

MERLIN

Only when all seven Crown Jewels are returned and the balance is restored to all of Avalon, will I be able to leave the wild magic and come home.

Merlin's face fades out. The Jewel box disappears.

FADE OUT

TREE

The green Jewel protects the trees. But wild magic made it turn on a dancing beat, that drove everything to its feet. From roots to shoots, the travel trees were shakin' Animals danced, and the ground was a quakin'. But in the nick of time, you came to the rescue. Now the balance is restored. The trees humbly thank you.
