Wake up, Sophia.
Destiny is within your reach.
[Sophia gasps]
[Sophia exhales]
Want me to take over?
I I'm okay. It's almost morning anyway.
-[Layla yawns]
-[Rory snores]
[gasps] Look! The stars!
[gasping] I'm a good duckling, I swear!
-[Ava] Whoa.
-[Rory] Whoa.
-That's a lot of baby unicorns.
-[Rory laughs]
[sighs] But no crown stars.
[gasps] Am I still dreaming
or is that smoke?
[Layla] Yikes. Looks like
it's coming from the Scarlet Narrows.
It's a desert, and according to this,
home to a dormant volca no!
Dormant, huh?
[magical tinkling]
Finally! That's a crown star.
[magical tinkling]
The crown star landed
in the Scarlet Narrows, didn't it?
-[tense music playing]
-[volcano rumbles]
-[Sophia laughs]
-Whoa, whoa, whoa!
What are you all doing?
This ruckus wake y'all up too?
Uh, yup. All that ruckus.
So ruckus-y. [laughs nervously]
What's going on?
That volcano's been dormant for decades.
[magical tinkling]
[Ms. Primrose] There are light tremors now
and again, but yes, this is quite unusual.
But we're safe at the academy.
Our best bet is for everyone
to stay far away from that volcano.
Stay put all you want, Ms. P,
but there's a herd of unicorns
living under that volcano
that needs to be rustled up.
Are you certain
that's the best course of action?
-That's the only course of action I got.
-You're going toward the volcano?
Uh, Ms. Wildwood, need a hand?
You really shouldn't.
Don't worry, they're safe with me.
And I could really use the help.
[Sophia gasps]
I can't believe Rory and Layla
are missing out
on a real cowboy adventure.
Rory's always a little frazzled
after the duckling dream.
A-And Layla, well
She needs to catch up on her sleep
for that brain to keep working.
[scoffs] Why worry about the rest
when you've got the best?
Yeah. There's no way I'm missing out
on a unicorn rescue.
Uh, yeah. Saving a herd of unicorns
from fiery doom?
The perfect way to start
my future best-selling memoirs.
Mm, I can see the title now.
Furi, Flirting, and Thriving,
or Buy This Book If You Wanna Live.
Well, if this whole unicorn rider thing
doesn't work out, Mendoza,
you may just have a future
as my publicist.
Hmm. Deal. [giggles]
[clears throat] Glad I caught you,
Sophia. A word?
It was very kind of you
to volunteer to help Ms. Wildwood
as long as you aren't using this
as an excuse
to go looking for fallen stars.
What? What? No, I
Mr. Tansy tells me
you have an interest in the crown stars.
You are not the first
to wonder about their power,
but I need you to understand
how dangerous they can be.
-I understand, but, Ms. Primrose
-[Ms. Primrose] Good.
Then for your safety,
and that of the island,
promise me
that you'll stay close to Ms. Wildwood
and far away from any stars.
I just wanna help the unicorns.
[gentle music playing]
[lively music playing]
Remember this spot, gang.
Reckon it's far enough from the volcano
to be safe for our herd.
So pretty.
I heard you and Ms. Primrose talking.
Is this another star hunt?
We barely got out of the last one
with our heads.
You've got nothing to worry about.
So this is just about helping
the unicorns?
Mm-hmm. And who doesn't wanna see
a real volcano? [laughs awkwardly]
[exhales] Well, good.
Glad to hear
you're being responsible for once.
[Isabel] Hurry up, slowpokes!
-[Wildstar neighs]
Come on. You know Valentina's
never been on board with the plan.
We can find the crown star
on our own this time.
[Wildstar neighs]
[gentle music playing]
-[unicorn neighs]
-[Ava gasps]
[lively music playing]
[foals neigh]
[Ava squeals]
Babies! [giggles]
[Ava giggles]
That volcano's gonna blow soon.
We gotta get you out of here.
[unicorns neigh]
Come on now. Work with me.
[unicorn neighs]
[magical tinkling]
[exciting music playing]
Ha-ha! That's more like it.
Put us in, coach.
[Ms. Wildwood] Don't worry.
Rush and me can handle the herd.
But I thought y'all
could keep an eye on the foals.
[Isabel groans] Seriously?
Yay! [giggles]
This is so my jam.
-[foals neigh]
-[Ava] Come here.
Let's go play
away from the boom-doom. [giggles]
Dude, you can't baby 'em.
But they are babies.
We don't coddle. We motivate.
Now who's ready to sweat to success?
Come on, y'all! Let's get a move on.
[River snorts]
[giggling] Come here. Peekaboo.
[foals neigh]
Sense anything out there?
[groans] I can't even
see Ms. Wildwood anymore.
How are these foals so slow?
[foal snorts]
Oh, he's tired. I'll carry you.
Hey! No special treatment.
He needs to walk like everyone else.
Oh, but Justin has little leggies.
Ava, they all have little leggies.
Ew. I can't believe I just said that.
Ava, if you baby him now,
he'll never be coachable.
Uh-oh, Ava's gonna get it.
[laughs] I don't know.
Ava's already named it.
Isabel better be ready for a fight.
Do you want to doom Justin
to a life of participation trophies?
[gasps] Told ya!
He just needed motivation.
Okay, maybe that's
a little too much motivation.
Aw. He loves animals.
[groans] I can't believe
we got suckered into being babysitters.
[chuckles] What, babies don't give you
the warm and tinglies?
Uh, Furis change the world, not diapers.
[Ava] We got him!
I get it now.
This is why my mom's hair went gray.
-[volcano rumbles]
-[Ava yelps] Whoa!
-[unicorn neighs]
-[Isabel gasps]
[Justin squeals]
[exciting music playing]
Looks like it's our turn.
[exciting music continues]
Wildstar and I will cut her off
at the front. You take the rear.
[exciting music continues]
[Justin groans]
[music fades]
[Sophia] She's limping.
Sh. Sh. It's okay. We're here to help.
May I?
Okay, I see the culprit.
Easy now.
-[Justin whinnies]
[Justin squeals happily]
[laughs] Whoa.
Looks like she's gonna be
a plant magic unicorn when she grows up.
[Cinder neighs]
Way to be prepared.
And how about we deal
with your eyebrows next?
[both laugh]
[lively music playing]
[Valentina] Attagirl. You're okay now.
Watch out, Val. Someone might think
you're loosening up for once.
Oh, right. I'm the crazy one
for stressing about a test
that will determine our lives.
We're gonna be fine.
Yeah, we might be.
You know, I'm pretty much an expert
on what goes together.
Plaid and leather, always.
Gowns and flats, ugh, ew.
But Mendozas and Furis?
It could be like french fries
dipped in milkshake.
Weird in theory, but actually could work.
-[magical tinkling]
-[Sophia gasps]
[mysterious music playing]
Careful, we can't let her see.
Hey, Val. Do you still have that thorn?
Oh darn.
I promised Layla I'd bring her a souvenir.
I'll just go back and grab it.
What? Why would she want that?
-Uh, you know Layla. [laughs nervously]
-[volcano rumbles]
Sophia, that thing is gonna blow.
We need to get these unicorns out of here.
You got it, right? I'll be back.
[Cinder neighs]
Let's go, Cinder.
[somber music playing]
-Yes! The crown star must be close. It's
-[Valentina] Sophia Mendoza!
Okay, I can see you're mad,
but I was just
Oh yeah, I'm mad. You lied to me!
Come on! You were so worried
about what Ms. Primrose said.
I thought I was,
I don't know, sparing you?
Oh gee, thanks.
Look, this isn't about you.
Are you for real?
Your constant rule-breaking
has everything to do with me.
We're supposed to be a team, remember?
This is what the final test
will be judging.
Ugh, please. Give it a rest. Can't you see
this means more to me than some test?
[laughs scathingly] Yeah, I can see it.
I see it time and time again.
You always put yourself
ahead of your friends.
Being a Mendoza doesn't make you
some kind of chosen one, okay?
This glory hunt is only gonna
Glory hunt?
This isn't about glory.
This is about my dad.
I'd do anything for my family.
Clearly, you don't get it.
Don't get it?
Everything I do is for my family!
Listen, I get that being a Furi is a lot,
but don't act
like you're so worried about the unicorns.
You're only thinking
about your reputation.
[scoffs] Oh, that's rich coming from you.
You're doing the exact same thing
your dad did.
Like that's a bad thing?
Um, abandoning your fellow riders
to go off on some star quest?
Yeah, that's a bad thing.
[sighs] Ava and Isabel are fine.
They can handle some baby unicorns.
[scoffs] I'm not talking about that.
I'm talking about
-[Sophia gasps]
-[magical tinkling]
[Sophia laughs]
[gentle music playing]
[Wildstar neighs]
[sighs happily]
If you're so concerned about family,
what about us?
What? What do you mean what about you?
[scoffs] Are you really this dense?
Haven't you thought
about the consequences of your plan?
What consequences?
Uh, hello?
Your dad disappeared
at the same time Grimoria did.
If you try to bring your dad back,
it could bring Grimoria back too!
[ominous music playing]
I I hadn't thought of that.
[Wildstar whinnies]
[magical tinkling]
But it's a risk I'm willing to take.
I I I'd do anything to find him.
[scoffs] And that's
the entire problem, Sophia!
You're willing to put your friends,
the academy,
the entire island in danger just to
What does that want?
You already have the star.
That's not why it's flashing.
-[Valentina gasps]
-[Cinder neighs]
[Ms. Wildwood exhales] About time!
I was starting to worry
you girls caught trouble.
[foals neigh]
-Oh, oh, wait. Where's Justin?
-He's probably back with Sophia and
[groans] This is why we need structure.
-[volcano rumbles]
[tense music playing]
-[foal neighs]
-We We gotta find Justin.
[suspenseful music playing]
[Sophia and Valentina] Whoa!
[suspenseful music continues]
[both scream]
[dramatic music playing]
[Cinder neighs]
[magical tinkling]
[dramatic music continues]
[Wildstar neighs]
[magical tinkling]
Whoa, what are you doing?
[both yell]
[dramatic music continues]
Huh? Huh?
[dramatic music continues]
[Sophia grunts]
[Cinder snorts]
[Cinder grumbles]
[suspenseful music playing]
[volcano rumbles]
And that's our cue to leave.
[Wildstar neighs]
Bring it on!
[Cinder neighs]
[suspenseful music playing]
The crown star!
On it!
[suspenseful music continues]
Thanks, Milkshake!
That'll buy us some time.
Come on, let's go.
[tense music playing]
[Justin neighs]
What the?
But too much structure is suffocating.
If it were up to you,
there would be no bedtime.
Oh, hey! You found Justin!
Yeah. And the Star Snatcher found us,
so run!
[magical tinkling]
[tense music playing]
What? The Star Snatcher?
Does that mean you found
-[rocks rumble]
-[Sophia yelps]
[magical tinkling]
[tense music continues]
[Sophia] Whoa!
[tense music continues]
Oh no!
[quiet tense music playing]
Hope it was worth it.
[Justin neighs]
-[Justin squeals]
Get back here, young man!
[tense music playing]
You're really willing to risk your life?
Just give them the star!
[tense music continues]
Where's Justin?
[suspenseful music playing]
-[Justin squeals]
[music fades]
Justin, I know you're just a baby
and this is really, really scary,
but please come here.
Pwetty, pwetty please.
[Justin grumbles]
[growls] Get over here right now, mister!
[Justin whinnies]
-[volcano rumbles]
-[both] Whoa!
[suspenseful music playing]
[Sophia yelps and grunts]
[magical tinkling]
[suspenseful music continues]
Sophia, look out!
[rocks crash]
[suspenseful music playing]
[music fades]
We have to go, now!
[quiet tense music playing]
[dramatic music playing]
[magical tinkling]
[unicorn neighs]
[Ms. Wildwood] Whew. There you are.
Okay, maybe I was wrong
about babying babies.
It's a surprisingly effective tactic.
Yeah, but I guess
firm structure is good sometimes.
Oh please. Just use bribery next time.
Ooh! That was a lot, even for us.
I know. I can't believe
we made it out in one piece.
Yeah, it was kind of scary.
[chuckles awkwardly]
But totally worth it.
Good to know
how you really feel, French Fry.
Ms. Primrose,
I need to talk to you about Sophia.
