[flutterbunnies squeaking]
[tranquil music playing]
[Ava] Oh! I just thought of another one.
Would you rather be a flower
or a lily pad?
[Leaf whinnies]
Flowers are pretty, but lily pads?
Hello, froggy pals. [giggles]
-Um bless you?
[magical tinkling]
[gasps] Look!
Leaf, it's our littlest friend!
[foal squeals]
How'd you get all the way over here?
Wait, did you follow us home
from the camping trip?
[squeals] I knew you loved us too! Oh!
Right. No touching.
[bells chiming]
I guess we've gotta go.
But it was really nice seeing you.
-[Ava sighs]
-[foal neighs]
I'm so sorry, little cutie patootie.
You can't come with us.
Ms. Wildwood said
we have to leave you alone.
[foal neighs]
But she also says,
"It's a unicorn rider's duty
to protect the island's magic."
And what's more magical
than a baby unicorn? [giggles]
[Leaf neighs]
Ooh. Yes, it is my solemn duty
to protect you,
and I accept that duty, um, solemnly.
[giggles] Oh!
Here you go. Fresh skyberries. [chuckles]
Uh, Wildstar?
-[Wildstar snorts]
Are you okay?
I've got a night class,
but if you need me to stay, I
[Wildstar whinnies]
Okay, good.
We've got astronomy
with Mr. Tansy tonight,
and I've got a lot of questions for him.
[Wildstar neighs]
The constellation's
obviously bothering you.
I just wanna understand why.
And why was your magic
so powerful the other night?
And who was that weird masked person,
and what does it all
have to do with with my dad?
When my necklace glowed the other night,
I could've sworn
Something's going on
with this Unicorn Constellation,
and I wanna know what it is.
-[Wildstar neighs sadly]
-Don't you?
[somber music playing]
[Rory yawns]
Why can't we have this class
during the daytime?
I know you're dim,
but it's a little difficult
to study stars in broad daylight. Duh.
Who are we
to try and understand the stars?
Whoa, Ava, where have you been?
[panting] It's actually a funny story,
um, that I will tell you all later.
Tell me you're here to cancel class
so we can go back to bed.
We are not.
We found evidence
of a unicorn foal on campus.
Has anyone seen anything?
-I haven't.
-Um, random question.
What exactly would be so bad
about having a baby unicorn around?
Their magic can be destructive
in their early weeks.
We don't want anyone getting hurt.
Yes. Interaction with them
is very dangerous and forbidden.
Don't worry. If we see any foals,
we'll tell you right away.
Thank you, Valentina.
Whenever there's trouble,
you Sapphires seem to be involved.
I trust you'll keep
your dorm mates in line, Valentina.
Of course, Auntie.
"Of course, Auntie."
Ms. Primrose,
can I talk to you for a second?
Of course, dear.
Something really weird
happened on the camping trip.
Ava and I saw this this person,
I think, in the forest.
It seemed like
they were going to take a fallen star.
-Mm. One of your classmates, maybe?
-I don't think so.
It was the middle of the night.
They were wearing a mask.
Plus, they used some kind of magic,
then disappeared.
-I just thought you should know.
-Thank you, Sophia.
That does sound very strange.
But I don't want you to be concerned.
I'll look into this matter myself.
Now, better get to class.
[Mr. Tansy] And once
you master wayfinding,
you'll find that you can use your skills
to navigate anywhere in the world.
It it's truly fascinating.
[Rory snores]
-[book slams shut]
-[Rory yelps]
As I was saying,
wayfinding is fascinating.
Yes, Sophia?
I was just wondering,
since we're lucky enough to be here
for the Year of the Unicorn,
could you tell us more
about the constellation?
Well, it wasn't on my lesson plan.
Then maybe we should stick to subjects
that actually might help us graduate?
But who can resist?
[Valentina sighs]
[Mr. Tansy] You are lucky to be here
in this exact moment in time.
The Unicorn Constellation
only appears every five years,
and it's a truly breathtaking
part of the celestial sphere.
-It has pretty stars.
[Mr. Tansy] Over the span of a few weeks,
the stars will fall,
bringing new magic and energy
to the island,
as I'm sure you've noticed, Sophia.
What do you mean?
Wildstar has light magic, yes?
Unicorns with light magic
have a special connection to the stars.
[gasps] I always wondered how she used
a star to turn Ravenzella to stone.
So is that why her powers
have been stronger lately?
Without a doubt.
And one of the crown stars
has already fallen.
These three stars, well, two now,
have an especially powerful
magical energy.
How powerful? What can they do?
Uh, I I I could go on about this
all night long,
but but we ought to return to our lesson.
[all groan]
[Mr. Tansy] Now, let's work
on your star maps.
[lively music playing]
How is it already morning again?
[sighs] Technically, it was morning
when we went to bed.
You must be tired too.
You were tossing and turning all night.
Yeah, about that,
uh, there's something I should tell you.
-[distant clanging]
-Oh no!
[Layla] Wha
-Oh no!
-What the?
-[clanging and shattering]
-[Ava chuckles awkwardly]
Please tell me that's not the foal
we rescued the other night.
Don't be mad at me but
-That's a bad way to start a conversation.
-Oh boy.
I will be mad at whoever I want.
You know the teachers
are looking for this thing.
Am I the only one
trying not to get expelled?
What was I supposed to do?
He followed us home.
[Valentina] Cool.
Then you can lead him back out.
But but he has no family.
He'll be all alone.
That's exactly why
he's supposed to be out in the wild.
To find a herd.
Right, okay, but I can't send him away yet
because, uh, because
Uh, because we need
to throw him a baby shower.
Yeah, he's a new baby
and as the only family he has right now,
it's up to us
to welcome him into the world. Ow!
Then, no matter where he goes
for the rest of his life,
he'll know that there are people out there
who love him. [giggles]
[sighs] And then you'll let him go?
Yes. Of course. Totally.
I guess it's party time!
[giggles] Yay!
[foal sneezes]
Excuse me. This baby is a fugitive.
What if my aunt catches us?
Do you know how that will make me look?
But she won't because you aren't
going to tell on us, right?
[sighs] Fine. Just get it over with.
[laughs] Your cuteness
warmed Val's icy heart.
I'm gonna call you Ember.
Or did you cool Val's fiery heart?
Maybe I should name you Frostbite?
Okay, if we're throwing a baby shower,
we're gonna need flowers
and snacks and music and
And the baby?
And we can hang
streamers from the stalls and
Wait. Huh? Oh!
[Leaf neighs]
[River snorts]
-[Glacier snorts]
-[Leaf grumbles]
[Leaf snorts]
Slipper! Come here, boy!
Cute, right? Because he's slippery.
-I'll workshop it.
-There he is!
[stone crumbles]
Oh, fix it, fix it, fix it!
[both exhale]
Now let's get out of here before Huh?
Uh Oh no.
[Leaf neighs]
[magical tinkling]
[Leaf grumbles]
Good morning, students.
Uh, you you seem very awkward.
Just puberty.
Ah, s strange. Well, w what's this now?
Just, um, uh, a class art project.
It's a impressionist abstraction
of the Battle of Smithersville.
But I'm sure you already knew that.
Of course. [chuckles awkwardly]
I've been on this island
since before you were born.
I know all about
the Battle of Smithers town.
Uh, toodles!
[all exhale]
Quick, get him into the dorms
before anyone else
questions our little art project.
[magical crackling]
[Ava giggles]
[door closes]
[all exhale]
[all groan]
[magical music playing]
Guess we'll have the party in here.
Come on. Time to decorate.
[gasps] Easy now!
-[foal neighs]
[groans] I was hoping this
ridiculous charade would be over by now.
Nope. It's your lucky day.
The fun has just begun.
I'm gonna get you, Little Nukey.
Tornado? Sparky? Dale?
-You can stay for the party, you know.
-[Valentina groans]
-[foal neighs]
[gentle music playing]
Okay, maybe just a few minutes.
[foal squeals happily]
[foal squeals]
[lively music playing]
[lively music continues]
[Rory] Aw.
[foal whinnies]
[Ava giggles]
I don't get it.
If the Unicorn Constellation
brings magic like this to the island,
why does Wildstar seem so grumpy about it?
Wildstar's no spring chicken.
Maybe she's jealous
of younger, cuter unicorns.
Cuter? Isabel, how could you?
There must be something
about the Unicorn Constellation
that we don't know.
I'm no conspiracy theorist,
but didn't it feel
like Mr. Tansy stopped himself
from revealing something secret?
I think he knows more than he lets on.
Yeah. He got all fidgety.
I'm gonna try talking to him again.
This time,
I won't let him change the subject.
Yeah, Sophia,
he does have my eyes, doesn't he?
[lively music playing]
[Sophia] Mr. Tansy?
Whoa. [chuckles] Sorry.
It's fine, it's fine.
Uh, to what do I owe the pleasure?
Or did I forget I have a class? Again.
Oh no, no, no. I just had
a few more astronomy questions.
A fellow galaxy geek, eh?
Well, if you're so interested
in the subject,
I would be happy
to assign you extra homework.
Uh, I'm good.
I actually wanted to talk to you
about the Unicorn Constellation.
Oh, I I was worried this might happen.
What would happen?
You're not the first Mendoza
to ask me about the stars.
What? You mean my dad?
[Mr. Tansy] Miles. Yes.
I don't know if you realize this,
but I protected the island
alongside your father.
The unicorn riders were called back
to defend the academy from Grimoria.
But your father
thought the answer laid in the stars.
He disappeared five years ago.
That would've been
the last Year of the Unicorn.
Yes. He'd heard
about the crown stars' power.
He he went looking for them.
-Why? What was he gonna do with them?
-I don't know.
Miles kept things close to the vest,
I'm afraid. Then he disappeared.
Okay. Well, you said
they had special magic, right?
Maybe he thought
Wildstar could do something with them?
Ms. Primrose would not want me
talking to students about such matters.
Oh, Tansy, old boy,
you get too carried away.
Please, did my dad find the stars?
I'm not sure.
But, Sophia, if he did, and then he
Well, it's clear
that the crown stars are dangerous.
You must steer clear of them.
Uh, sure. Will do. Thanks, Mr. Tansy.
Why didn't you stop me?
[Leviora neighs]
Ha! I knew it! I knew there was something
going on with the Unicorn Constellation.
My dad was looking for the crown stars.
Maybe that's how
he made Grimoria disappear.
And then, they must have had something
to do with his disappearance too.
And Mr. Tansy said
he didn't know what happened,
but you do, don't you?
[Wildstar neighs]
Wildstar, it's okay.
You don't have to be sad or mad
about the stars.
Whatever happened back then,
my dad is alive.
And maybe if we find the crown stars,
this time, we could use their powers
to bring him back.
-[magical tinkling]
-[gasps] My necklace!
My dad gave me this necklace.
This must be a sign from him!
-I'm sure of it! [chuckles]
-[Wildstar grumbles]
He's telling us to find the stars.
We're gonna get my dad back.
I thought that'd be good news.
[foal neighs]
Wrecker. Smasher.
Bone Breaker. The Mess Maker.
Ugh, stop trying to name it!
We I mean you will get attached.
Uh, hey, how about a round of charades?
Okay, um, one word. Um
[foal neighs]
Wildstar, where are you? [gasps]
[tense music playing]
Sapphire Dorm.
Why am I not surprised? [huffs]
Uh-oh. Ava!
[suspenseful music playing]
-[foal growls]
-[Layla yelps]
Okay, that's it. We've had our fun,
but it's time for the foal to go.
No, wait, come on.
I know he's a little messy,
but we can't just abandon him.
We're his family now.
Ava, you promised to let him go.
He's a wild unicorn.
He belongs in the wild.
Look how cute he is. [giggles]
[gentle music playing]
-Sophia, what did Mr. Tansy
-Later! Ms. Furi's coming!
-[Rory gasps]
-[suspenseful music playing]
Actually, she's here.
-[foal neighs]
[suspenseful music continues]
Oh, hello, Ms. Furi.
Celebrating, are we?
-Yeah, it's my half-birthday.
-Year of the Unicorn party.
[all] Year of the Unicorn party!
[Leaf neighs quietly]
[Ms. Furi] Hmm.
[foal whinnies]
Aha! I knew it.
Oh, hello. We were just studying.
We take school very seriously.
-[Isabel] Ah! Ow!
-[Sophia] Oh!
Little help?
Forget it. I can't be seen here with you.
You're on your own.
-[foal neighs]
Now where did everyone go?
The bathroom. Probably for a while.
[whispers] Burrito day.
-Feel free to go check on them because
-I know you're hiding a foal somewhere.
And I'm going to find it.
[tense music playing]
Do you think we lost her?
For now. But Ms. Furi's not giving up.
We've gotta get this guy
back to the forest.
[foal neighs]
It's okay, honeybun.
Nothing's gonna happen to you.
Or us. Hopefully.
[foal neighs]
[Leaf neighs]
[Ava] No, no, no, no, no!
Not the enchanted archway!
-[foreboding music playing]
-[foal squeals]
[magical tinkling]
[music intensifies]
[loud cracking]
[loud cracking]
[Ava strains]
We can't lose it!
[magical tinkling]
[uplifting music playing]
[Wildstar neighs]
[Ava strains]
[Ava exhales]
Thanks, Wildstar.
You're always there for me
no matter what, aren't you?
[neighs softly]
[somber music playing]
[suspenseful music playing]
I know you're out here, Sapphire Dorm!
Don't come over, don't come over.
I've got you this time.
I was hoping I could get a private lesson
from my favorite teacher.
Right now, Valentina?
I want to be prepared for the final test.
Someone in our dorm
should know what they're doing.
I'm glad to hear it,
but it will have to wait.
Oh, right. The rogue foal.
I saw something near the library.
Aha! Quickly, Ghost!
[magical tinkling]
[foal neighs]
We love you,
but you'll be happier out here,
where you can grow up
into a big strong unicorn.
-[foal squeals happily]
-[winces] Still worth it.
[gentle music playing]
[Leaf neighs softly]
We'll miss you!
Um Huh.
How about Starjoy?
I was gonna say Rory Jr., but sure.
Bye, Starjoy!
Are you gonna be okay, Av?
Yeah, and he will be too.
He may not have a family yet,
but he'll find one, like I found you guys.
And that's my cue to leave.
Enjoy the sap fest.
Oh, and thanks again
for wasting my time so thoroughly. Hmm.
[Ava] Thanks for your help. You saved us.
I was saving myself. That's all.
[gentle music continues]
You did good, Ava.
Thanks, bestie.
Hey, listen.
I need your help with something.
It's about the crown stars.
