- [gasps]
- [Rico crying]
- Get away from him.
- [mournful music plays]
Now! [echoes]
[music fades]
[sweeping music plays]
The Teca prophecy was wrong.
We are the prophecy.
And you, Gran Bruja,
are the Great Rooster Wizard I seek.
- [Maya] No, wait! I am!
- [all laughing]
I am! I'm the Great Eagle Warrior.
What is so funny?
- [rumbles]
- I don't have time for this!
- [gasp]
- [squawks]
[Maya] Now, come with me
to destroy the Divine Gate
and save the world,
or stay here like a coward!
- [yells in Spanish]
- [flames whoosh]
- [whoosh]
- [gasps]
- [dramatic music plays]
- You Tecas, you thought you knew
- the meaning of the prophecy.
- [yowls]
- [shrieks]
- You were wrong!
- [gasps]
- So now,
you come to my kingdom, disrespect me,
and demand that I join your
ridiculous quest to save the world.
Yes, but
A world made unsafe
by your father's indiscretion
and your family's declaration of war
on the god of war.
- [laughs in Mictlan's voice]
- [gasp]
- Well, guess what?
- [music fades]
Lord Mictlan is guaranteed to be
better at war than you
- because he is the god of war.
- [laughs]
Child, this may come as a shock to you,
but Luna Island does not exist
solely to clean up Teca's messes.
So will I, the Gran Bruja,
join your misguided quest?
- [suspenseful music playing]
- No!
- [thuds]
- [gasp]
[speaks Spanish]
[apologizes in Spanish]
- [Gran Brujo] For me, protect each other.
- [sighs] I can't believe I'm doing this.
- [gentle music plays]
- Princess Maya,
there is a young wizard my father once
called the greatest wizard who ever lived.
Oh, where can I find her?
[sighs] I haven't spoken to him
in some time,
but I hear he lives
near the Luna Island Academy.
- Gracias, Gran Bruja.
- [hopeful music plays]
[Gran Bruja growls]
- [door rumbles]
- Ah!
[screams] I I wasn't listening!
[grunts] Oh, hey, girl.
Ugh, you again. What?
- Wanna hustle me out of more gold coins?
- Wait. Where you goin'?
None of your business.
You're in luck. I've been to
Nanoyobusness many times.
- I will take you there
- No. Now go away.
[door rumbles]
- Uh, you're gonna need a guide.
- [gasps] What?
You sure you don't need my help, Princesa?
- What did you just call me?
- Snooty. Know-it-all. [speaks Spanish]
No. I meant just now.
Never call me that again.
Hey, if the crown fits.
Never! Now, I'm busy. Leave me alone.
Dang! You are cold!
I'm missing a leg,
but you're missing a heart.
- [awe-inspiring music plays]
- [gasps]
- And you still need a guide!
- [growls]
- [counting down in Spanish]
- Wait.
- Whoomp, there it is.
- [clinks]
[gloomily] Please take me
to the Luna Island Academy.
- [stammers] Sorry, I can't help you.
- [clinks]
Oh, come on.
- I'll give you two coins.
- No.
- Tres?
- Look, I don't want to go there.
- [sighs] I really need your help.
- [coins clink]
- Please?
- [gentle music plays]
- Follow me.
- [whooshing]
- [debris clattering]
- And this is the Luna Island Academy.
What happened?
Uh [stammers] Gran Brujo died here.
- He tried
- [whoosh]
[yelps loudly]
- [whoosh]
- [exclaims in Spanish]
A fake missing leg?
My leg! Oh, my leg, it it grew back!
It's It's a miracle! [kisses]
Oh my Praise the leg gods!
The left and the right. Oh my gods.
Look at this. They're even and everything.
Ugh! You and the Gran Bruja set me up.
Say what? Her?
For reals?
[sighs, clears throat]
[adventurous music playing]
Ha ha ha!
Very funny, Gran Bruja.
You sent me on a wild-goose chase.
Gran Bruja?
Where did everybody go?
[stammers] I will show you.
Let me make it up to you.
- Oh my gods. You again.
- [rasps softly]
- Look, I'm not giving you any more gold.
- [blows]
- Hey! What was that?
- You'll see.
[magic jingling]
[Maya gasps]
Mwah, mwah, mwah!
- [whispers] Invisibility spell.
- [growls] Seriously, guys? I can see you.
[gasps] Can you see this?
[singing in Spanish]
- Eugh. I wish I can unsee that.
- [slow clapping]
Congratulations, Maya.
You found the vagabond
my father once called
"the greatest wizard who ever lived."
Wait. This guy?
He's like a scarecrow,
but without dignity.
[stammers] Sorry, can't go.
I promised your father
- I would protect you, Gran Bruja.
- Ha!
- You, protect me? Please.
- [rooster clucking]
My father protected me
until you came along.
- [gasps] Oh no.
- [Estefan whimpers]
Go on this so-called quest, Rico.
Prove my father was not wrong about you.
- [Maya] Oh, but
- [Rico gasps]
So, since you're
my only choice left, ahem,
Rooster Wizard, will you join my quest
to destroy the Divine Gate?
[stammers] I
[Gran Brujo] I see you, mijo.
And one day, mark my words,
you will be the greatest wizard
who ever lived.
[gentle music playing]
Ready, gallito?
I will join your quest, Eagle Warrior.
Oh. You can call me Maya.
- [mellow music plays]
- [stammers] My name is Rico,
and this is my staff, Estefan.
Nice to meet you both. Huh.
Well, we're sure gonna need more help,
and I know just who can help us.
- [fluttering]
- Ah Puch Ah Puch! [echoes]
Um, you sure you know
where you're taking us on this quest?
I always know where I'm going.
But sometimes when I get there,
it's somewhere else.
Besides, Ah Puch helped me
the last time I was lost.
Ah Puch! [echoes]
Yeah, I'm startin' to think this Ah Puch
character [whispers]doesn't exist.
[Maya] Aw!
How am I supposed to find
the Jungle Kingdom like this?
- Ha! [stifles laugh]
- What are you doing?
- [laughs]
- [gasps]
- You're making fun of me?
- Maya! Maya! [stammers] Put Estefan down.

[tense music plays]

- [screams]
- We're coming, Maya!
- [Maya grunts]
- Please don't hurt her!
- [gasps] Chiapa!
[growls happily]
Ya know this beast?
- [snarls]
- Oh, oh, we're pals.
Or at least we were
until he left me to fight
a crazy tattoo goddess all by myself.
You should be sorry.
- I forgive you.
- [snarls]
[growly voice] Your giant cat
looks delicious.
Can we pet him?
[mews in confusion]
- Of course you can pet him.
- [growls]
If you can tell us
how to get to the Jungle Kingdom.
Oh my gods. You're so cute.
[in sing-song] Yes, you are.
I bet he tastes like kittens.
- [slurps]
- Huh?
Uh The Jungle Kingdom?
It's not far.
Hey, follow us, amigos.
Now we're even for leaving me stranded.
Yep. [stammers] Exactly where I was going.
- [girl laughing]
- [exciting music plays]
[both chuckle]
They're so fast.
What are these kids eating?
- Probably jaguars!
- [jaguar snarls]
[both giggling]
- [screams, grunts] That's better.
- [Chiapa snarls]
Catch us if you can!
- [Chiapa snarls]
- Hold on! Wait for us!
[silence falls]
[Rico] Whoa!
Looks like a graveyard of forgotten gods.
[speaks Spanish]
Uh, hello? Where are you?
- Ooh.
- [whispers] Something is not right.
[shudders] Hoo!
If it is to be, it is up to me.

- [Chiapa snarls]
- [Rico screams]
- [grunts]
- [grunts, gasps]
- We scared you, scaredy-cat!

That is someone else's pee.
You didn't scare me.
[deep, loud voice] Well, how about this?
- [dramatic music plays]
- Oh my gods. Here we go again.
[stammers] Ooh! What are you?
- [power crackling]
- I am Cabrakan,
the god of earthquakes!
And I am Cipactli,
- the goddess
- [screams]
of alligators!
Oh, you're so pretty!
- Okay, now that's definitely my pee.
- [growls] Get it together, you two.
[both growl]
The odds are in our favor.
[Chiapa running away]
Then again,
I've always preferred a fair fight.
- [both laugh]
- [clanks]
[whispers] Don't just stand there.
Do magic.
[stammers] Terebro!
[magic blubbers, screams]
[jingling thud]
[both laugh]

- [clangs]
[laughing] Whoa!
That was amazing!

- [gasps] Rico?
I think I broke my everything.
Wait. You stay right there.
I can handle the other one.
[Cipactli] Yeah, right!
- [both grunting]
- Whoo!
- Not bad, girl.
- What?
Niña, there's no need to fight.
Just come with us.
- [yells]
- [both grunt]
- [gasps]
- [Maya battle cries]
[Cipactli grunts]
[whispers] Finish her.
- [grunts] Had enough?
- That's it?
I tried to be nice,
- but now things are about to get ugly.
- [sinister music plays]
[Maya yells]
[Cipactli snarls]
[Maya grunts]
- [chomping]
- [Maya grunting] Ha ha!
- [hisses]
- [grunts]
- Ah!
- [exciting music plays]
- How about you taste my claw?
- [splats]
[music stops]
- [pops]
- [snarls]
- [exciting music plays]
- [laughs] Open the hole, querida!
This is so not good.
Holy cacao! Run!
Heads up, muchachos!
[both grunt]
[both yelling]
- [Maya yelps]
- [thud]
- [Maya grunts]
- [rocks showering down]
[Rico grunts]
[breathing heavily] Rico? You alive?
[breathing heavily]
- [tense music plays]
- Estefan! Come to me!
[Estefan groans]
[straining, grunts]
- [gentle music plays]
- Come on. Use your magic to get us out.
I can't. I am nothing without Estefan.
What? You're supposed to be
the greatest wizard who ever lived.
Don't you know any other kind of magic?
[stammers] Peasant Magic.
It's very dangerous.
Who cares?
I do. I could hurt you.
- Those gods can kill us.
- And And so can I.
- [music fades]
- Ugh.
Then this is it.
This is as far as we're gonna get.
- [gentle music plays]
- We lost.
I know how that feels.
Come on.
We'll figure something out, Eagle Warrior.
[sniffles, sighs]
- Gracias, Rooster Wizard. [gasps]
- [rumbling]
[Cipactli] This is not the plan, Cabrakan!
- Lord Mictlan commanded us to bring
- Commanded? We are gods.
Aren't you tired
of being treated like a servant?
[sighs] Look, maybe the girl can hurt him,
and that's why he fears her.
Don't be a fool.
Fool? [growls]
Oh. Oh, ay, ay.
The gods who sacrifice the half-breed
will become the most powerful
in both realms.
And I want that to be us.
But what if it doesn't work?
Lord Mictlan will end us.
That's a risk I'm willing to take.
- Ay, mi amor, Lord Mictlan is too strong.
- [rumbles]
- [groans] And you think I'm weak?
- [speaks Spanish]
I didn't say you were weak.
Did I say you were weak?
- That didn't come out of my mouth.
- Does this look weak?
- [grunting]
- [rumbling]
This is not weak.
- [grunting]
- [both yelp]
Gracias, Rico.
- Hm. Don't mention it.
- [gasps] Look.
- [gasps]
- [hopeful music plays]
That's our way out! Come on!
Once I get [stammers]Estefan back,
he'll get us out of here in one piece.
- [loud thuds]
- Oh, they're coming!
- [Maya gasps, grunts]
- [suspenseful music plays]
- Huh?
- Ah!
[grunting, panting]
- Hey! And where do you think you're going?
- Let me go!
- Maya!
- [strains]
[laughs] What? Get back down there.
- [Rico yells]
- [laughs]
Ese wizard. [chuckles]
- [strains, speaks Spanish]
- [grunts]
[speaks Spanish] I'll be a kinder god
than Lord Mictlan.
- This is for your own good.
- [gasps]
For my own good? I'll be dead!
- [growls]
- [groans]
I'll be sure it's quick
and painless, little one.
- [blade swishes]
- [sinister music plays]
[blade rasps]
Do not sacrifice this child.
Li Listen to her.
She's making a solid argument.
Lord Mictlan is too powerful.
We cannot hope to defeat him.
Let's bring her to him like we planned!
Wait, what? No! No. Bad argument. Bad!
- Not another word!
- [tense music plays]
- [rumbles]
- [grunts]
I swear, if you do not control your
[in normal voice] I will leave you.
[Maya] Help!
You You can do this.
- Mm-hmm. You You can do this!
- [magic whooshes]
Rise me up, ahora mismo.
No more fear, ya estoy listo!

- Ah! Why is this not working?
Hold on, Maya! [grunts]
- [thuds]
- [grunts]
[magical hum fades]
[gasps] Rico!
- Enough!
- Hey, what was your name again?
It's Cabrakan! [grunts]
Oh, and you're the god of tantrums.
Or the god of terrible husbands?
- [giggles]
- I'm the god of earthquakes!
God of earthquakes? Really?
[laughs, gasps]
That's kind of weak.
[yells in Spanish]
Ay, not again.
Nobody calls me weak! [grunts]
Does this look weak to you? [grunts]
Cabrakan has the power!
- I am hardcore! How do you like me now?
- [upbeat music plays]
I pity the fool!
Cabrakan is not weak!
- Enough. She is taunting you on purpose!
- [sinister music plays]
- She is?
- [pants] Come on, Estefan!
- We have to save Maya.
- What?
- [gasps]
- [Estefan mutters]
[dramatic music plays]
- [gasps]
- You are nothing
without your staff, wizard. [laughing]
- Please don't hurt him. [stammers]
- [laughing] Hurt him like this?
I am the most powerful wizard
in the world.
You can do this, Rico!
- [stammers] Destrúyelo, just leave dust!
- Huh?
Peasant Magic!
- Aplastalo, and self-combust!

- [groans]
- [roars]
[panting, screams]
I will never give up.
[pants] Come and get some.
- [screaming]
- [cracks]
I was not expecting that.
Save yourself. Go.
- You're really letting me go?
- [rumbling]
- What? No!
- [whoosh]
I'm not going to let you sacrifice her.
Lord Mictlan will kill us both.

[laughs] You're doing it, Rico!
What? You think you're big time?
[grunts] You're gonna die big time!

who always do heroic things.

Yeah, the word is dead.
If you ever need me,
Maya, I will be there.
Farewell, Princess Teca.
Adios, Cipactli.

Fine. Be that way. But you're missing out.
[both laugh]
We should go now.
Which way to the Jungle Kingdom?
Follow the bees and the sweet scent
of jasmine toward the purple mist.
[mysterious music plays, fades]
Head northeast.
- That way.
- Got it.
- [mellow music plays]
- [purrs, snarls softly]
Gracias, Cipactli!
[Maya] So, how did you convince
Chiapa to come back?
I I cast a courageous
battle cat spell on him.
You did?
Um, there is no such thing. [laughs]
But he didn't know that.
See? You did it all on your own.
