[hooves galloping]
[gentle music continues]
[Wildstar snorts]
[gentle music continues]
[Sophia] Whoo! Yes!
[Isabel] Show-off!
-Takes one to know one, Isabel! [laughs]
-Put some hop in your trot, Sapphires.
It's not every day
you get to go on a camping trip
with your favorite teacher.
[yawns] My favorite teacher wouldn't
drag me out of bed before sunrise.
Come on, Rory.
The early bird gets the worm.
Who wants to eat worms?
[Storm snorts]
-[magical tinkling]
-[thunder crashes]
[yelps] Okay, I'm up, I'm up!
[gentle music playing]
[magical tinkling]
[magical tinkling]
-[Layla gasps]
-Time for a snack break?
Oh, thanks.
Best day ever, huh, girl?
[mysterious music playing]
What's up there?
[Wildstar whinnies]
You know, there's nothing
like a camping trip
to strengthen your bond with your unicorn.
What are we talking? Team building games?
Trust falls? Rope course?
Ooh, sharing our deepest secrets?
I'll go first.
[Rory whispers]
[Storm neighs]
[laughs] That's just between us, Storm.
Don't go blabbing to the others.
[clears throat] Like I was saying,
the end of your first year is coming,
and y'all are gonna need
strong unicorn bonds
if you wanna pass the final test.
Test? [gasps]
Oh, what kind of test?
Oh no, is it an oral report?
I really don't do well with oral reports.
Is there extra credit I can do to prepare?
-[Glacier neighs]
-Right. Right.
Breathe, Layla. Just breathe. [exhales]
This isn't your average test, Layla.
It's designed to challenge
your abilities as a unicorn rider.
Like the proving course?
'Cause we nailed that.
After a minor fall off a cliff.
That was an obstacle course.
This will be a simulated mission.
We gotta make sure
our unicorn riders in training
are up to snuff.
So if you don't pass the test,
you're packing your bags.
But the most important part of the test
is that each dorm works together to pass.
If one of you fails, everyone fails.
We're training you for real missions.
And when danger strikes,
unicorn riders work as a team.
[Cinder snorts]
[Ava giggles]
[River neighs]
[Rory yawns]
We're doomed.
Hey, no sweat. We can handle some test.
-I mean, we defeated Ravenzella twice.
-[Wildstar neighs]
But we weren't being graded.
Right. We were only
fighting for our lives.
Sophia's right.
We've got nothing to worry about.
[laughs] Yeah! We're the Sapphire Dorm!
Nothing can stop us! [laughs]
[sighs] Cute. False hope.
This camping trip isn't about the test.
I've got a big surprise for you
come nightfall.
Now, enough yakking.
How about a race?
Giddyap, Rush! Woo-hoo-hoo!
[cheering and laughter]
[Isabel] Yeah!
[laughter and shouting]
[sighs] Ha! Ha!
[exciting music playing]
[flowers squeak]
[exciting music continues]
[music fades]
We don't need
to worry about this test, right?
There's plenty of time to study, right?
Well, good thing I brought every book
the library would let me borrow. [groans]
[gentle music playing]
[magical tinkling]
-[Rory] Ah, thank you.
-[scoffs] Seriously?
Working as a team, remember?
Oh! Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!
[River neighs]
[creature squeaking]
[River neighs]
[River neighs]
[Sophia] Hmm.
Uh, Earth to Wildstar.
What do you keep looking at?
[creature squeaking]
Um, Ava, have you noticed
Wildstar acting a little strange?
What do you mean?
She seems distracted,
but I I can't figure out why.
Do you think she's worried?
About what?
Ravenzella is locked away again,
and her grim magic was destroyed.
Then maybe it's about my dad?
We know he's out there somewhere,
but I have no idea where. [sighs]
Maybe Wildstar
is feeling anxious about it too?
Well, neither of you
should worry about that.
We're going to find your dad
one way or another.
This camping trip is sure to get Wildstar
out of whatever funk she's in. [chuckles]
[exhales] Yeah, you're right.
I think this'll be good for both of us.
[Cinder neighs]
[magical tinkling]
[Isabel] And as the girl
went to bed in the woods that night,
she heard a strange voice whisper,
"Where's my unicorn horn?"
[Isabel] The girl hid in her sleeping bag
hoping the sound would go away.
But then she heard
the light on her lantern click off,
and again, "Where's my unicorn horn?"
Oh no, no, no, no.
She shivered
as the temperature suddenly dropped.
She could even see her breath.
Then she heard it.
The sound of something large
moving in her direction.
She crawled deeper into her sleeping bag
as the creature's bones creaked
as it bent towards her.
[groans] I can't believe this.
Delia and Jacinta and I
had a whole spa night planned,
but instead, we're stuck here
listening to children's stories.
[Isabel] by cinch, by cinch.
-[Isabel laughing]
[Cinder neighs]
Agreed. At least I've got you here
to keep me sane.
Will you look at those beauties?
Oh, I think those stars are Orion's Belt.
Nah, those are Orion's flip-flops.
Orion wore flip-flops?
Oh yeah. He was a big beach guy.
What? How did I not know that?
Surf's up on the Milky Way, brah. [laughs]
-[Sophia laughs]
-You guys!
Whoa. I've definitely never noticed
that constellation before.
[Wildstar neighs]
[Ms. Wildwood] That's 'cause
it hasn't been there.
The Unicorn Constellation
only appears once every few years,
making this
The Year of the Unicorn.
[unicorns neigh]
That's right. You're lucky.
This is a real special time to be here.
[sighs] Are you gonna tell them
they're just stars, or should I?
Just stars? [laughs]
That constellation
brings magic to the island.
-[magical tinkling]
-[Valentina] A falling star! [squeals]
Yeehaw! Luck is on our side.
Let's go find it.
I got a surprise
that's gonna knock your boots off.
Bet you a stall-cleaning
I can find that star before you can.
[scoffs] Oh, you are on!
Come on, girl. Let's go.
-[Wildstar neighs quietly]
-Wildstar? Is something wrong?
[Wildstar snorts and neighs]
[exhales] I knew you wouldn't wanna miss
all the fun.
[Rory] Over here!
[panting and laughter]
Looks like the real star here is me.
Don't worry,
you can talk about how great I am
while you're both cleaning Storm's stall.
[Storm neighs]
[magical tinkling]
Ooh, a real star.
This goes against everything
I ever learned in science class.
That's how you know it's magic.
Uh, is that supposed to happen?
[unicorns neigh]
Mm, hold on for the surprise.
[magical music playing]
[music fades]
[gasps] Is that a baby unicorn?
[Leaf neighs]
[Ms. Wildwood] That it is.
[all gasp]
[Isabel] A baby?
[Ava] A baby. Ooh!
Must hug. [grunts]
Come here, cutest little baby in the
No hugging, Ava.
Foals might be cute,
but they're fresh from the stars
and have unpredictable magic
the first couple of weeks.
Mm-mm. We've gotta keep our distance
until the star magic
works its way out of their systems.
[sighs] I may pass out.
Ooh, I'd love to take some data.
[Ms. Wildwood] Distance!
[Leaf whinnies]
[gentle music playing]
[Storm neighs]
Look. Another star is falling.
Huh? More babies?
Nope. Not from that one.
That's a crown star.
Those are the stars
that make up the unicorn's horn. See?
So no baby?
Sorry to disappoint.
Crown stars have,
uh, different magic in 'em.
[Wildstar sighs]
[Wildstar snorts]
Ms. Primrose would have my hide
if she knew I let you stay up this late.
Time to get back to camp.
Wait, you're telling me we're leaving
a defenseless newborn unicorn
out here on her own?
Come on now. This is Unicorn Island.
The foals are born to live here.
Leaf grew up just the same
and she turned out fine, right?
[Leaf snorts]
Yeah. She turned out great.
Don't worry.
This foal will find a way
to a wild unicorn herd for rearing
just like your unicorns did.
Now let's get to stepping.
[giggles] I can't imagine
you were ever that small.
Ugh. Who brought cotton candy?
-That's not cotton candy. [laughs]
-[Valentina] Ew! Ugh.
-[Storm neighs]
-Aw, even her poop is cute! [laughs]
[gentle music playing]
[Ava exhales]
[gentle music continues]
It's beautiful.
But you don't seem happy about it.
[Wildstar neighs]
Can you feel him too?
My dad?
Is that why you're acting weird?
You don't have to be sad or or worried.
We're gonna find him. Together.
[gentle music continues]
[magical tinkling]
[Ava gasps] Did you see that?
[Leaf snorts]
That's another baby.
[Ava squeals and giggles]
Come on!
What do you say? Wanna see another foal?
Could be your best friend someday.
[Wildstar snorts]
Fine. I'll go without you.
[somber music playing]
[gentle music playing]
[Wildstar whinnies]
[magical tinkling]
[gasps] Look!
That must be the star.
[magical tinkling continues]
[gasps] What was that?
[unicorns neigh]
[magical tinkling continues]
[gasps] Who Who's that?
I don't know. What are they doing?
[foreboding music playing]
[magical tinkling]
I love him!
[foreboding music playing]
We have to help the baby!
[dramatic music playing]
[Sophia] Hey. Leave that foal alone!
[dramatic music continues]
-[Sophia gasps] Watch out!
-[foal squeals]
[Wildstar neighs]
-Where'd they go?
-Sophia! The foal!
[foal squeals]
-But Ms. Wildwood said that we have
-I know.
But he's scared,
and it's dark, and he could get hurt.
[dramatic music continues]
Do you see him?
No. Wildstar?
[magical tinkling]
-[Ava yelps]
-[Sophia] Whoa!
Too much!
[music fades]
What was that?
[distant neighing]
[suspenseful music playing]
-[creatures growl]
-[foal squeals]
[Ava gasps]
[creatures growling]
[foal squeals]
[Ava] Get away from my baby!
[Ava grunts]
[Ava grunts]
[dramatic music playing]
Got you, little buddy. Ow!
[creatures growl]
[magical tinkling]
[dramatic music continues]
[creature growls]
[magical tinkling]
[creatures growl]
Sophia, I don't know
how long we can hold them.
Wildstar, light 'em up!
[magical tinkling]
[dramatic music playing]
Wow! Thanks.
Wildstar, that was, uh
Incredible! [laughs]
You saved the day, girl.
[somber music playing]
[sighs] So much
for this trip cheering her up.
[somber music continues]
Think you'll be okay now, fella?
[gentle music playing]
[foal neighs happily]
Aw. Okay. I'll miss you.
[winces] Worth it
to make a new best friend.
Try to stay out of trouble.
[gentle music playing]
[chuckles] He'll be all right.
But what about
that weird hooded creep we saw?
Uh, I I don't know who that was,
but it seemed like
we scared them off for now.
[exhales] We should head back before
Ms. Wildwood finds out we left camp.
[jaunty music playing]
[music fades]
[lively music playing]
[music fades]
[gentle music playing]
[sighs happily]
Seriously, Wildstar,
that blast was amazing.
Those crystal crocs
didn't know what hit 'em. [giggles]
[Sophia] I wish
you could tell me what's wrong.
I thought you'd be happy.
You saved a baby unicorn.
[sighs] But it's like
you're not even here right now.
[sighs] And I bet you stared
up at these stars too, huh, Dad?
Maybe you would get
what's bugging Wildstar.
I know you said
it was dangerous to look for you,
but Wildstar and I
do plenty of dangerous stuff.
I'm a good unicorn rider, Dad.
Maybe I'll be as good as you someday.
I can help you.
I'm not afraid.
