The film is presented in a 1. Whizzer overhears this and reports back to Zelda. I have no other choice but to take you to my castle and deal with you in a manner to which you are according. Odette tells Derek to destroy the notes, saying nothing good can come from them. Zelda then transforms Odette into a swan, and imprisons her and Jean-Bob in a dome of green fire that would destroy them if they touch it.

As part of her evil plan, Zelda kidnaps Odette, the Swan Princess and demands that Prince Derek turn over the Forbidden Arts in exchange for Odette's safety. The dialogue is always sharp and clear, and the songs come through fine, unfortunately. As I haven't seen the first two films in the trilogy, I really can't comment on them, but they've certainly got to be better than this one. The voice work, originality, and clever choreography that made The Swan Princess special are missed once again. Zelda tells Whizzer to find out if Rothbart's notes for the still exist, as he can imitate any voice, promising to set him free if he does. Derek embraces her and tells Odette he loves her.
They're also closer in tone to the first film's score than to the second. When Derek arrives at the meeting place to pay the ransom, Zelda tricks Derek into letting his guard down by disguising herself as Odette and snatches the final piece from his grip. The prince and princess, the queen, and all of their delightfully quirky friends must once again use all of their wiles and courage to outwit and defeat the sinister villainess. Whizzer informs Zelda that the notes are in the castle, but Zelda forces Whizzer to help her next scheme. The voice acting is at least serviceable especially Michelle Nicastro, Katja Koch and Christy Landers.
Parents need to know that this movie contains some very standard cartoon violence: the scariest sequences involve Zelda, a sorceress who cackles a lot and loudly, threatens our heroine and her family and friends, casts evil spells upon innocents, and generally causes a lot of trouble. The image is slightly blurry throughout the film and there is a fine sheen of grain on the image for the duration of the movie. But, none of that apparent talent shows through here. The plot, compared to Secret of the Castle is more interesting and fast-paced with a movingly dark climax, though it is admittedly daft and predictable in an adult perspective. Despite the undeniable similarity in plot to in both films Lord Rothbart's successors attempt to snatch the same Forbidden Arts from the castle; and in all three films, members of the royal family are kidnapped in the villains' quest for power , this third offering has been able to recapture some of the charm, humor, and magic of It's more fun and more contemporary than the first sequel.
In the final battle sequence, Zelda can't escape a fireball and blows up. Hopefully, cut-rate productions such as this one will teach parents that children want quality animation and that they should hold out for truly great movies. To discover if the notes still exist, Zelda captures a named Whizzer, who has the ability to imitate any voice after hearing it only once. Derek is heartbroken over this, but when he burns Rothbart's notes, the fire takes the form of a swan, and Odette is revived. What, if anything, did you like better in this movie?

At the castle, Derek receives the ransom note and retrieves the torn portion of Rothbart's notes from where he'd hidden it in the library. You will regain consciousness this instant, and remain conscious until I win the talent show.
For instance the blue bird Whizzer is very annoying and sometimes pointless, though it was funny when he imitated Jean Bob's voice. As Zelda reads the last notes and receives the power to destroy, Derek releases Odette from Zelda's trap. Jean-Bob wins the obstacle course and becomes prince for a day. Derek and the others face her in battle and as the fight ensues, Zelda conjures a destroying seeker and casts it at Odette. Whizzer is captured by Speed and Puffin, who convince him to help them stop Zelda.
Zelda mocks Derek and retracts her promise of returning Odette. Puffin and the others finally meet up with Derek and race toward Zelda's lair. . Why do you think audiences like them? Even at 73 minutes, the movie drags on for far too long, especially the denouement, which allows the movie to go on for nearly 10 minutes after the finale. On its own, this is a mildly entertaining movie with some funny characters, an admirable heroine and hero, and pleasant, if not memorable, music. For a short time it's feared that Odette is gone and the others begin to grieve for her, but she reappears quickly. The second sequel is deeply flawed, but not at all bad.
When Whizzer imitates and asks about Rothbart's notes, Rogers thinks a rumor is going around about this and tells Derek, who reveals to Odette and Whizzer that shortly after 's death, he and Rogers found Rothbart's chamber containing everything on the Forbidden Arts, and while destroying everything else, they kept the notes, intending to use them for good.

As he burns the notes, he apologizes to Odette and prays some good may still come from it. As enters the festival's talent show with Rogers as her partner doing the tango, Zelda disguises herself as a girl being attacked by a bat played by Whizzer. To put it mildly, there are no redeeming qualities to this movie. This film follows and having to deal with , an evil sorceress who is seeking the and wishes to use it to destroy their happiness.
