The Swan Princess: A Royal Myztery (2018) Script

Final load. It's been a long day.

Queen U! Queen U! Queen U!

I've never seen such an enthusiastic crowd.

Oh, dear. She's been touring for weeks.

Queen Uberta, your fans await.

She too pooped to party.

Upsy daisy now.

No, downsy daisy. No!

Quick, before I pass out!

Queen U! Queen U! Queen U!

Step aside please, dear.

Oh.

You're such beautiful little fans.

Thank you. Hi, Queen U.

And what is your name? My name's Ashley.

Next. Hi, Queen U.

What's your name? Melody.

I had no idea how popular this book was.

Are you kidding? I've read it five times.

Count Antonio, that snake!

He wanted all the gold Queen U got for our dam, so he pretended to be in love with her!

But she saw through it and brought him down!

Your name? Gwendolyn.

"For Gwendolyn."

My mom says you made this book up and that you loved Antonio for realsies.

Your mother is...

Next.

Oh. Hello!

Queen U! Queen U! Queen U!

Remember, girls, it's a queen's world!

The kings just live in it.

I was born to be a writer.

Why did I waste so much time on flower arrangements?

Queen U! Queen U! Queen U!

Time to boogie home.


Come on!

How's she doing?

I love you.

I was only pretending to be in love with Antonio.

In your dreams, woman. In your dreams.


Mother! What's wrong?

Never fear, Uberta! I'll defend you from...

Was it a moth again?

I told you, Uberta, moths are nothing more than pale butterflies.

This is not the work of a moth!

More like a mountain lion!

Or a dingo!

A dingo scratched my baby!

Oh, nonsense. I know exactly what made these marks.

It was bound to happen, the way you clutch that book day and night.

What have I done?

No!

Hmm. I don't know, Rogers.

These scratches aren't really consistent with mother's nails.

And I didn't see any fibers under her nails, either.

Let's leave forensics to a professional, shall we?

No! Give her back to me! You can't touch her!

No! Out! Out! Out!

Better cover.

Well, at least her lungs are in good shape.

I can't believe I'm looking for an animal that claws things.

Hello.

Raccoon?

Uh... Too small.

Oh. Possum. Still too small.

Rats? Tell me, is this one of those times when it's okay for a husband to not tell the truth?

Actually, it's required.

Oh. Then these tracks were made by friendly, fluffy little mice who smell of cinnamon.

Nice try. I'm serious.

They'd give you the shirt off their back, if they had one.

I see. Feel better?

Not in the least.

Rats. Ugh.


Lucas, come and see!

Wow.

I hope King Sebastian likes it.

Oh, he certainly does.

Thank you for bringing your talents to my kingdom.

Oh. I'm going to get my easel and paint a selfie of me and Jasper with these flowers.

Flowers smowers.

You couldn't get these things to bloom later in the day, huh?

You're spoiled, Number 9. Spoiled?

I prefer to think of myself as very deserving.

Boo!

Oh, come on, nothing?

Eh.

Scully, you're back!

We planted tulips for King Sebastian.

Which is the very reason I came.

Might be a frost tonight, so... Got to get these covered then.

Know where I can find some giant sheets in this kingdom?

Hmm. Unfortunately, I do.


How many more do you think we need?

We've got a lot of tulips to cover.

Can we be done now?

Oh. The scary expert is scared? Boogie, boogie, boogie.

Just 'cause I know scary doesn't mean I like scary.

I think this is the sheet that was used to cover Antonio and Nicollo's submarine.

Psst! More over here! Let's load them up and move them out!

Wow.

If I didn't know better... Hold on.

Yep. This must've been their first try at a submarine.

Awesome. Should we see if it works?

Looks like you caught me again, Hunch.

Oh. Except this time I used the sidearm cast-and-snatch.

Cinches tighter than your basic overhand toss.

Translation, don't expect to be home for dinner.

But here's the rub, my good Hunch, I didn't do anything wrong.

Oh, is that right? Hmm.

Let me see then.

"No one, be he alive or dead," so it reads...

"shall steal pink bellies from the Boggs, Bogg Island, "or any of its wholly owned subsidiaries."

"Rescue" is a better word, I think.

Well, look who's been to Fancy Word Camp!

You stole.

A clear violation of Bogg Code section 3, article 19.

Oh. The Boggs have codes now. Very nice.

It's great, right? I kept telling Nums, "The Boggs need law and order.

"And I'm gonna give it to them, or I'll die trying!"

And then I died. But I'm still trying.

Nice! Is it just me, or have you gotten better with that rope?

Nobody gets away from Larry. Larry?

That's what I call my lariat! Larry the lariat.

It's catchy, right?

That's clever!

Remember that time I let you flatter me, and you worked yourself free?

Here we go again.

I always forget about glass.

Scully?

Whoa!

Hey, that hurt!

No, no, no!

No, you don't.

Where'd Scully go? Hopefully, practicing his "boo."

Alise!

Alise! Lucas!

Beware the man in black!

What's taking so long?

For heaven's sake, Jean-Bob, it's not rocket science.

I need that measurement!

If you tried to jam yourself into a shoe box, then you'll understand!

To get in there, I'd have to be a tadpole.

I quit.

Quit?

Jean-Bob, this invention, once used for stealing gold and kidnapping kings, can finally be put to good use.

But I cannot recreate its blueprint without your help.

Just take it apart and measure it.

I would sooner die than deconstruct such a work of genius!

Please, Jean-Bob. You're the only one who can do this!

I must figure out how they made this thing work.

Take pity on an old man of science, won't you?

Oh, all right. Great!

Now get yourself down in there!

1.77.

1.77.

1.77.

Something's scratching my back!

You have to stay down there, Jean-Bob.

Don't come out yet. Okay?

This is why they have unions, you know.

Try to relax, little buddy.

Relax? You try getting your head, arms, and legs inside a...

Show-off.

I've got it! I know how it works.

They pressurized a discombobulator and nincomfited the cogmaster to a wheelheimer!

Exactly what I was going to say.

Now I can build an even better submarine by simply following this blue...

Huh?

Ah! How did... Who...

A-ha!

There's rats in here!

There's rats down there, too!

It's really strange.

Why would rats do this?

Ooh. Interesting.

Outer space is interesting.

This is a catastrophe!

I must be walking in my sleep!

I... I'm a...

I'm a monster!

Do what you must!

Clip them as short as a washerwoman's!

Do it!

But do give them a nice touch of color.

Perhaps something in the mauve family.

No, Uberta, I was wrong.

It wasn't you who scratched the book. Not at all.

So you let me carry on and embarrass myself for no reason?

No, Mother, please!

Now, let's all calm down.

How? We've got rats!

Rats on an evil mission from who-knows-whom.

All of us marked.

On a hit list.

But what does the "Z" stand for?

That's easy. "Zhe bad guy!"

Let's not jump to conclusions.

These could be the marks of friendly cinnamon-scented mice.

I'm just saying, we need to be calm.

Well, that's easy for you to say. You're not on a hit list!

Huh?


Oh. No.

I'll just be moving along.

If we're all marked, Alise and Lucas!

We'll leave right away for Borromeo.

Puffin, you fly ahead. Warn the children.

Thief! You stole our pink bellies!

We'll get revenge!

How did you catch him? Sidearm cast-and-snatch.

It's a new roping classic, buddo.

Yep! Say toodle-loo to the overhand toss because...

I'll catch you up on the details later.

You shouldn't have done what you've done, ghost.

Those were our pink bellies.

But basically it cinches tighter.

That's all I'm gonna say for now. Details to follow.

Oh...

Article 3, section 19, point 1, sub-clause A, addendum C, particle M, slash umlaut.

"The penalty for stealing pink bellies, "if the guilty party be a ghost, shall be..."

Huh...

Ah!

Life behind glass.

Yeah.

Get in.

I can't possibly fit in there.

Oh! Yeah!

Yep.

In you go.

So no trial, huh?

Wait! Point of order, Nums.

It's a small thing and yet a big thing.

Tiny yet gargantuan.

Miniscupule yet elephantinormous.

Lillipushkin yet... What?

You can't punish him without a trial first!

If someone finds out we put him in that jar without a trial, they could technically, feasibly, set him free.

Wait, wait.

I got him here. I'll get him in that jar fair and square.

Game on! I've been training all my life for this!

Well, all my ghost life, anyway.

But that's still a life.

Here we go again.

On the upside, I'm getting a trial.

On the downside, I'm being tried by some pretty dumb animals.

Beautiful.

Beautiful.

A bouquet for every home in Borromeo.


This is my favorite color.

Ah, here they are.

Puffin, it's so boring.

And if anything needs protecting, it's the tulips.

I'm sorry, children, but no one leaves the castle until Derek and Odette say so.

Thank you, Puffin.

Mama! Papa!

Sweetheart, you're safe.

You saw what's been done to my tulips.

Someone's leaving a mark.

Do you have any idea what it means? I wish I did.

A statue of Nicollo and Antonio.

It's slated for destruction, but, until then, I must attend to more pressing matters.

King Sebastian!


Not to worry, Jasper.

We'll have it repaired in no time.

Order in the court!

Hmm. That's a quality tool.

Proceed.

Do you promise not to tell a bunch of big fat lies?

I certainly do.

My dear, diablical Mr. Scully, not your first time to Bogg Island?

No, sir. The accused agrees.

Let it be so noted.

Hmm?

Uh... Never mind.

On your previous visit, did you come as a ghost?

Objection! Your Honor, these questions about ghosts are immaterial.

Get it?

Sustained, because it's funny.

Seriously? Proceed.

The porpoise? I'm sorry. Are we talking about dolphins?

No! The porpoise of your visit to Bogg Island.

I came to see my friends.

Your pink belly friends, am I right?

Exactamundo.

And these pink belly friends, are they the same pink bellies my client was planning to eat?

The very same.

And then suddenly they were set free.

Imagine that!

No further questions.

Never even took a class.

Mr. Scully. First, I wanna thank you for being so transparent.

I'm killing me.

From now on, Mr. Scully wants to represent himself.

So I wanted to make it fun. Sue me.

Your Honor, I would like to call a witness. Nums.

Will you state your name for the record, sir?

Nums. And that is your full name?

Is Nums your full name, sir, or no?

Objection, Your Honor! He's badgering the witness!

Badgering? Excuse me, Your Honor. Nothing of the sort.

Badgers are fierce animals!

My question is friendly, like a bunny rabbit.

Well, it's okay to bunny rabbit the witness.

Huh?

Your full name then, sir.

Um. Numsy...

Yes, and?

Wumsy, okay? Wumsy! It's Numsy Wumsy!

Very well then, Mr...

I'm sorry. I'm sorry, Your Honor.

Mr...

I'm sorry. All right, moving on.

What proof do you have that I stole your pink bellies?

Objection!

That was not a bunny rabbit question.

He may not be badgering, but he's at least weaseling my client.

And weasels can be fierce, too!

No weaseling the witness. Fair enough.

Sir, you seem an honest Bogg.

I'm sure you wouldn't accuse me of stealing if you didn't see it yourself, right? Yes.

So how did I do it?

When we weren't looking, you untied their ropes and hauled them off.

You saw me do that, did you?

Yes, I did, you thieving ghost!

Order. Order.

Um...

One final question before I turn myself over to your justice.

Sir, would you be so kind as to take up the gavel and throw it at me?

Throw it right at me. Just right here in the old bread basket.

Here, "X" marks the spot. Right here.

Objection? What could you possibly object to?

Unless he throws less like a Nums and more like a Numsy Wumsy?

How does a ghost who can't touch or be touched untie ropes and haul off pink bellies?

Did not see that coming.

Your Honor, I move that you declare a mistrial!

Say he's guilty! Say it!

But we haven't deliberated.

Guilty! It doesn't count!

Only a foreman can say "guilty," and I'm the foreman.

Order in the court!

Bailiff, establish order!

I've been waiting all day for that.

Come on! Get out of here!

This is not proper courtroom decorum.


Oh. That can't be good.

Princess! Scully!

There's a... We got a... I think there's a...

Derek! Move!

Good thing I'm a ghost. That was close.

Derek, he controls the rats. He was spying on you.

Then he whistled! Who?

A man in black. I've seen him before.

Follow him, Scully.


He jumped.

I'm an innocent ghost!

You're a foo-gitive.

But Larry and I are gonna fix that.

My men are searching everywhere.

So far, no man in black.

I'm worried that he'll try to hurt the children.

Don't worry. Scully will find him.

Your Majesty.

The prisoner Nicollo requests to speak with Prince Derek.

Alone.

He says he has information about the man in black.

I'll be back.

Prince Derek. Don't get your hopes up.

Nicollo's mind is quite undone.

Well?

No sign of the man in black or Scully, I'm afraid.

You? Just more rats.

Follow the rats! That's how we can find the man in black.

I don't like it, Princess. Let's leave that to Scully.

Well, when he shows up, I will.

Until then, I'm following the rats.

Ugh!

I can't believe I just said that.

I'm gonna need help, Number 9.

Uh-huh. No way! Talk to the paw, people.

Number 9! Look, even if I wanted to, the King would never allow it.

What are you gonna do? I'm popular.

I've got it! Follow the rats!

Your Highness?

And here's how you do it!

Jasper! Are you sure?

I thought maybe...

Uh-uh. Jasper and I may be royalty, but when it comes to friends, we are foot soldiers.

Aren't we, Jasper? Only if you insist.

Help me.

Scully? I can't find the man in black with this fellow chasing me.

What fellow? I don't see a fellow!

Is there a fellow? It's a Bogg ghost.

Get Rogers. He'll know what to do.

Oh. And tell him to bring the thing I gave him.

I'll fly back and let him know.

Hey, that buffed out very nicely.

Red alert!

We need help tracking a ghost!

Yes!

This pleases you?

It makes me insane with joy!

Oh, and Scully said to remember to bring the thing he gave you.

Right!

Now, where is it? It's in here somewhere.

I put it behind the... No, it's not.

It's not. I forgot about that.

What don't you have in there?

Probably not a statue of a monkey.

Oh!

Toy dentures.

A beautiful maiden to give me a kiss.

Figures.

Paralyzing spray?

I call it "deodorant."

A fresh spy is a good spy.

Ah.

My ghost rope.

No beautiful maiden, but he's got a ghost rope!

Finally, our first venture into the paranormal world.

Come on!

Um. I'll just stay here in the normal world.

Which includes rats.

Paranormal world, here I come!

Sure, let the frog drive!

I've made a few improvements to our communication system.

Nice.

Young Tree Climber awaits our first message.

You asked to see me?

You asked the man to come here? Say something!

I did no such thing!

Who is he?

It's Prince Derek, fool! His mother wrote the book.

Oh.

Queen U to the Rescue.

You're the one who out-dueled Antonio and ruined all our plans.

Back off! Get back!

Not only him. There's the Queen, Lord Rogers, that bird, the frog, the turtle, Alise, Lucas! Not just him.

Excuse me. I, for one, bow to you.

As do I.

Stop bowing lower than me.

You stop it.

I was told you had some information about the man in black.

Well, tell him.

You tell him.

You are the one who asked him here.

I did no such thing! Who is he?

I think we're done here.

Psst! Antonio's back. Antonio is back?

I just said that.

You think Antonio survived a hurricane in a rowboat?

Oh, he could survive anything with my inventions, including a leap from a tall building.

Just like he survived leaping from the dam in order to destroy it.

Oh! Yes, we were the brains, you see?

Antonio? He was just a pretty face.

Hey! What about mine?

No. Not possible.

Please, my friend, let us help you capture him.

He's free because of us.

But he let us rot in this prison!

We can find him.

We know how he thinks!

He'll get you all if you don't listen to what we say.

Why were you marked, Derek?

Think about it. It's all in the name.

It's all in the name!

He's back.

Blew it again, didn't you?

What? It's all your looney talk that sunk us.

Looney talk?

I am the intelligent one here.

Come on, Lucas.

Yes!

"Hello, Skinny Professor. Scully here with me."

Excellent! "Excellent."

"I have ankle bracelets."

No one cares about your jewelry. Get to the point.

Do you mind?

"Do you mind?"

Why not tell him you're planning to get a nose ring, too?

"I'm not getting a nose ring."

"Speed, stop sending..."

...every word I say!

You see? Tracking bracelets.

If you put it on someone's ankle, you can track wherever he goes.

"Scully says..."

Can't put bracelet on a ghost.

"But put in jar with ghost rope."

Shut my mouth.

"Ghost bracelets a go." Wonderful.

"Come and put one on."

Tell him I'm on my...

Scully!

"Scully chased off again."

Oh, dear!

I thought the King loved me.

But, no, he puts my last life on the line.

Rats! Yuck.

Okay, scare them out, and let's see where they go.

Those are huge tails.

There could be an alligator on the other end.

They're just rats.

Look, every time I died, all eight times, I felt just like this before it happened.

Scared out of my wits!

Then maybe it's time to be brave, to act like a cat with royal blood.

Maybe it's time to show the world that Jasper is not to be messed with.

Now that there's no music, I'm not really feeling it.

It was a catchy tune, though. I'll give you that.

What? Fine, then I'll be the alley cat.

I don't like this.

Shoo!

Shoo!

Uh... Go away. Vamoose!

Don't make me use these heels.

Help.

That's right. Turn and run. Run! Back to the sewer with you!

I knew you had it in you.

Next time, a little quicker please.

Did you hear that? No, I didn't hear anything.

Scully said the man in black whistled, that the rats were under his control. Let's follow.

"Has Scully returned?

"Need his help."

Scully hiding at wharf.

Brilliant. Tell him I'm on my way.

Okay.

Blasted glass.

Tricked again!

Mama said, "Never trust a pink belly."

You were right, Mama.

We're going wireless, baby.

It won't do much good to be able to track you if I can't communicate with you.

Hands.

Who would've ever thought, ghost gloves.

Lovely.

Tracker.

And communicator.

Amazing.

Can you hear me now?

Loud and clear.

Can you hear me now? Roger.

Can you hear me now? Roger.

Can you hear me now? Roger!

Now, we just have to get this other one on Hunch.

He's here.

No, Scully.

Oh, no.

Scully chased off.

"Be there soon."

I don't suppose you've ever heard any rumors about Count Antonio surviving at sea?

Begging your pardon, Highness, but do you know anything about the sea?

Antonio rowed into Hurricane Sally, which took ships the size of that one, begging your pardon, Highness, and dashed them into matchsticks!

Right. Probably a crazy question.

Indeed it is, if you'll beg my... Pardon granted.

Uh...

But is it?

It's all in the name. It's all in the name.

All in the name.

"Antonio Zambrano."

He's back.

What is it, Prince Derek?

Antonio is the man in black.

He's back. No.

Can you afford more guards to protect Odette and the children?

Oh, dear. What?

Odette is following the rats to find the man in black.

Excuse me, Your Highness.

Everything's a go here.

Ready to commence Operation Ghost Catcher.

This stuff can't be good for the environment.

Jean-Bob, are you ready?

In position and ready.

All right. Go time.

Okay, Scully, show yourself, me friend.

Oh.

Scully!


Here they come.

Incoming!

Now.

Got you!

This is a 2-12!

Obstructiating the pursuit of a foo-gitive!

Hooray!

You're clear, Friendly Ghost.

Bogg Ghost moving in the opposite direction.

Roger that, Skinny Professor.

Mission accomplished. Not quite yet, General Puffin.

While Scully searches this quarter, you search here.

We've got to find the man in black!

I'm on it. What's he look like?

He's a man in black.

Well, it makes sense.

Come on, keep up, Number 9.

Well, okay, it's been fun.

Got to leave. Got to get a caticure.

Oh, no. We're seeing this through together.

No way. I'm not going on their turf.

Okay. But go tell the King I went underground alone.

By myself. With the rats.

Just me. Without you.

Okay, okay. Rats. I'm coming.

"How did you die, Number 9?"

"I followed rats into a sewer, yeah, 'cause I was trying to find a lunatic!"

"Doesn't sound too smart." "Tell me about it."

I think we're getting close.

This cat can't wait.

They went this way. Come on.

Not crazy about that.

Someone's trying to trap us.

You think? I'm out of here.

I've got eyes on the man in black.

What's he doing? Am I clear to investigate?

Clear to investigate.

Wait! What?

Something's not right.

I don't think the trap was for us.

But who then?

Derek! Move!

Odette!

Derek!

Derek!

Derek!

Princess. Stop him. He's gonna trap Derek.

He's going to trap Derek. Where, Friendly Ghost? Where?

Somewhere in section three. Send help.

Do you copy?

I copy.

Skinny Professor?

Prince Derek in trouble! Section three! Bring help!

Odette!

Odette!

No.

Where's Odette?

If you've harmed her, Antonio...

Where's Prince Derek? I'm down here.

Get these grates open.

He's getting away!

Derek!

Odette. He wants you, Derek.

It's always been about you.

We need to go back to Nicollo.

Exactly. He's our best lead to Antonio.

Your Royal Highness, here.

We might've lost the man in black for the moment, but we can find him again.

You didn't have a chance!

After them!

Giddy up, horsies.

Release my ghost, you... You ghost!

Oh, no.

A word to the wise, Hunch, old boy.

Uh-uh.

Not a word out of you!

Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice, shame on me.

Fool me three times, double shame on me!

Fool me four times, you get the jar, pal.

Hunch, old buddy, my friends will know exactly where I am.

And when they come to rescue me, let's face it, your Bogg friends won't be a match for a fleet of ships and soldiers, will they?

Fool me five times, it's back to shame on me.

These things are never as bad as they seem.

Let's just stay right here and figure it out.

We have to persuade that Bogg to let Scully go.

Okay, I'll do it. What?

Weren't you going to tell me to get in the jar and turn into a ghost?

Why would I say that?

So I can appear to Hunch as the ghost of my alter ego, Green Thing.

Well, how does that help?

Because the Boggs worship Green Thing, and if Green Thing tells them to let Scully go, they'll do it.

Genius. Genius.

Sheesh!

Some people are a little slow on the uptake.

Sometimes it's best to let him think it's his idea.

Yup.

I've passed to the great beyond.

It'll wear off in time.

And if it doesn't, you've had a wonderful life.

I see. When he finishes...

Okay. Hunch.

Green Thing.

C'est moi.

You died? I thought you were immortal.

No, just awesome. But how?

I had a cough. One thing led to another. Look, the point is, I have a commandment for you.

You must let this ghost go!

I...

Don't ask me to do this. You know I can't.

You dare challenge Green Thing?

Forgive me, Green Thing.

But this is a matter of justice.

Justice is a good thing, right?

How dare you lecture Green Thing about justice!

Now, keep your eyes shut, or Green Thing will make you alive again just so he can make you not alive again.

Oh...

What's going on here?

Reincarnation?

What's happened?

No one fools me six times!

I've got standards, you know!

What?

Now I suppose you're gonna say I asked them here.

Shh, you fool! Let the good people talk.

Obviously, you were right about Antonio being back.

I told you.

No, I told them!

I told them!

No, I told them!

You both told us! Okay?

I can agree with that.

Fine, we both said it.

But, really, I said it.

I heard that.

Hold on.

If you know how he thinks, you'll tell us his next move. Now.

In exchange for...

How can you bargain when lives are at stake?

Fine, no deal. No deal. Right?

Right.

Fine. You'll rot in here, just as you feared.

Whatever he would do has already happened.

That doesn't tell us anything.

The children.

No. No, that's impossible.

Is it?

No sign of the man in black anywhere.

Rogers.

Have you seen the children? I thought they were with you.

We thought they were with you.

Have you seen the children? Uh... Mmm-mmm.

Spy team, spread out.

The only chance of finding them are the rats.

My thoughts exactly.

Alise! Lucas! Where are you?

That's him.

Come on.


What?

Oh, no.

Whoa, whoa.

No, no. Don't move. Don't move. No.

Please, let me.

Careful, Derek.

Papa, I'm so sorry.

You've got nothing to be sorry for, Alise.

Now, let's see.

It's no good, Prince Derek. If one of us tries to step out, the scale tips, and the other one will fall.

I can see that. Do you trust me?

Now, jump to me on three.

One, two, three!

Papa.

One, two, three!

Take the children to safety, Odette.

He's after you, Derek. I won't leave you here.

But the children! It's not safe here.

Derek.

Go, Odette. Go.

Odette, if this is the end, just know that I have always loved you.

This is not the end.

Do you hear? Not the end!

The great Antonio Zambrano.

Back together with Nicollo again?

Where is he? Not brave enough to show his face?

Oh, quite the contrary.

I thought he was supposed to be a smarty.

Only according to his mother.

But truly, I do cherish her book.

I learned about every living creature responsible for ruining my plan.

Then I marked each one for revenge.

Your end will only take the few seconds required to fall to the bottom.

But the others, the others will die a little each day for having lost their beloved Prince Derek.

Come, it's not my fault.

We wouldn't even be here if you hadn't been so lucky as to avoid the chandelier and the sewer trap.

Luck had nothing to do with it.

Some people have friends, real ones, the kind who'll do anything for the people they love.

Did you hear that, my lovelies?

Actually, Derek, they're quite devoted.

And more effective than your friends.

After all, you are going to lose.

I do have one last question.

Why the Z?

Oh, Derek.

I'm disappointed in you.

Nicollo.

If only you had more time in life, perhaps then you would have learned to look beyond the obvious.

I was about to say the same thing to you.

Oh, Derek, I have underestimated you.


That's it. I've had it!

Let them come and try to rescue him!

Then we'll have all the pink bellies we can eat!

Meat! Meat! Meat!

No! Listen to me!

The pink bellies are not to be taken lightly.

They've got those things, the...

And the...

And the...

If they come here, that's all, folks.

Let them try! Yeah!

Meat! Meat! Meat!

Like I'm gonna do that.

Please, Hunch, all I want in the whole world is to know my friends are safe.

If you let me go, I promise I'll come back.

Not possible.

What?

What now? Hunch, please.

If you let me go, I...

I will make the pink bellies promise to never come rescue me. Ever.

Why would you sacrifice everything for them?

Because they would do it for me.

You better take this.

I will be back.

You better keep your word.

No! No!

Derek.

Skinny Professor. Skinny Professor here.

Come join me, fast as you can.

Derek's at the hangar.

Puffin, get Odette.

Whoa!

They'll search the pit for you, but you're going to disappear in a way they'll never find you.

And, you know, this prototype certainly had its share of problems,

but it always did one thing well. Sink.

But just in case you get free...

Poor Derek. So many friends, but not a single one in sight.

Here, take one of mine.

Bon voyage.


Derek.

Puffin, the winch.

I'm on it, Princess! Come on.

Oh!

It's no good.

Oh, dear. No.

Skinny Professor. Scully.

Scully. I'm with Derek. What can I do?

Tell me what you see.

Dials, knobs, gauges, levers. I don't know. Why?

There was a surface lever, but Nicollo broke it off.

Oh, Derek, so good to hear your voice.

Is there anything that can improvise as a lever?

A straight wrench. Jam it in.

Negative. Derek is tied up tight.

Then you do it.

No. Never mind.

It's a catchy tune, Derek, but focus.

It fits.

It won't move.

No, it won't just yet.

Follow my directions closely.

There should be a discombobulator box by your knees.

Got it. Re-pressurize it by disconnecting and reconnecting it.

Done.

Not much time to figure this out, Scully.

Now, nincomfit the cogmaster.

How?

Give it a good smack.

It worked.

Now, push down the rise lever.

Derek! He's losing consciousness.

There's not enough oxygen.

Derek, listen to me!

Derek!

He's passed out.

Derek, it's me.

My darling, you can't sleep now.

Not now. Take a breath, Derek.

You can do this.

♪ Far longer than forever

♪ I'll hold you in my heart It's working.

♪ It's almost like you're here with me

♪ Although we're far apart

Oh, my friends...

Derek.


Boo!

Boo!

It worked.

Quick. Outside.

Prince Derek! Prince Derek!

Going somewhere?

Can I at least go say goodbye?

You're not going anywhere.

Friends?

Friends.

How'd I do, Mama?

Huh?

Well, I'm trying.


What are you waiting for?

What? No, no, come back! No! Come back!

Get me down!

So, in a way, my book was responsible...

Please, Uberta, we don't want you to feel responsible for...

For bringing down Nicollo, too?

Yes. Exactly.

Well, you know what this means, don't you?

It's time for a sequel, baby!
