Whew! Well, Naomi, here we are.
My favorite view of the city.
You were right, Elena.
It was worth the hike,
even if there was no path.
Well, there used to be one.
But I haven't been up here in 41 years.
You were stuck in that amulet.
Yes. That's kind of why I wanted to come up here.
There's something I need to show you.
What is that?
This wand belonged to Shuriki,
the sorceress who invaded Avalor.
The one who put you in that amulet?
It's time I told you the whole story...
How I lost everything and everyone I loved,
and how I finally found my way back home.
The truth is, I would still be trapped in that amulet today
if it wasn't for a brave young princess
You okay, Sof?
That was weird.
It was like I just had a dream,
but I was wide awake.
It's called daydreaming. I do it all the time.
Children, as I was saying,
I hope you all have a wonderful summer.
Class is dismissed.
Have your steward write my steward.
Oh, I can't wait to find out
where Daddy is taking us for our summer trip.
Come along, Sofia.
Yeah, we better get home.
And I better get to the secret library.
The kids will be here any minute, Miranda.
We have to figure out where we're taking them.
What about Corinthia?
I was hoping to go someplace we haven't been before.
The kingdom could use a new trading partner.
So, where are we going, Daddy?
We're still trying to figure that out, Amber.
I wish to be small.
"The Lost Princess of Avalor"?
Like the Amulet of Avalor?
Exactly like the Amulet of Avalor.
Don't be so alarmed.
I know I am not the first talking book you've seen here.
Usually, they just tell the stories.
They don't talk to me.
Well, this book was made by a powerful wizard.
The royal wizard of Avalor.
Well, I was a royal wizard,
before I turned myself into a talking book.
Why did you do that?
It is a long story,
which I am about to tell you,
so get comfy.
Across the great ocean,
in the enchanted kingdom of Avalor,
there once lived a young princess named Elena.
On her 15th birthday, her mother, Queen Lucia,
gave her a magical amulet,
the Amulet of Avalor, a family heirloom,
passed down from generation to generation,
that would protect her from harm.
But one fateful day, Queen Shuriki,
an evil, power-hungry sorceress
from the northern islands, invaded Avalor.
She attacked the king and queen,
then set her sights upon the palace.
Princess Elena bravely chose to face Shuriki on her own,
so that her family would be spared.
I saw this before in my daydream.
That was Elena's way of calling you here,
so I could tell you the whole story.
Now, when Shuriki tried to strike her down,
the amulet saved Elena by pulling her inside it.
And that is how the princess wound up inside your amulet.
There's a princess inside my amulet?
And she's been there for 41 years.
But this is the most important part.
Shuriki thought she had gotten rid of Elena,
but she was wrong.
I soon discovered that the only way to get her
out of the amulet
was to find a special princess
who could set her free.
I searched the globe for years
until I grew too old to continue,
and used the last of my magic
to transform myself into this book,
so that someday, her story could have a happy ending.
And at last, it seems Elena
finally found the princess we have been searching for.
She chose me?
You catch on quickly.
I like that.
Now, in order to find Elena,
you must travel to my home in Avalor,
and summon my chanul.
Wait. I have to do what?
Go to my home in Avalor and summon my chanul.
But be careful, for Queen Shuriki
still rules Avalor,
and is as powerful and evil as ever.
So you probably want to keep your distance.
I can see you are unsure.
Listen, Elena tested many princesses before you.
She granted them powers and curses,
but you are the only one she chose,
and she has been preparing you for this day
since you first put on the amulet.
So you can do this if you choose to.
Her story is in your hands now, Sofia.
It is up to you how it ends.
I don't care where the dart landed, James.
We are not going to the North Pole.
I know where we should go.
We should go to Avalor.
- What? - Avalor?
That's so far away.
And we need to visit a kingdom we can trade with.
