The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music (2019) - full transcript

Princess Odette is hosting a music competition to celebrate Princess Alise's birthday. Prince Li of Cathay has entered, but his sister Princess Mei Li has stowed away on his ship to seek ...

Tomorrow you
set sail to compete

in the greatest
music competition in the world.

By hard work,

you have earned this right,
my son.

Is this not so, Ru?

It is so, Divine Emperor.

May your devotion bring honor

to your country
and to your home.

Let no dalliance,
no personal venture,

come between you
and victory.

I give you my promise,

If only your
sister shared your wisdom.

One would think twins
would be more alike in this way.

is it not possible...?

I know your feelings
are tender for her, Li.

That's as it should be.

- But things cannot be changed.
- But...

Say no more.

Now, when you arrive
for the music festival,

you will deliver this gift
to the Swan Princess.

The Swan Princess.

- Chen.
- Mei Li, my love.

I must tell you something
very difficult.

- Let me speak first, darling.
- Mei Li...

Will you speak until
the last ray of sun is gone

and you're a dragon again?

Forgive me.
Our few seconds together

are too precious to waste.
You first.

Tomorrow my brother sails

to the kingdom
of the Swan Princess.

She could show us how to break
the sorcerer's spell.

Mei Li, it is a dream,
a wild wish.

- But...
- We will never break the spell.

It's time for me
to go far away

so you will be free
to love another.

- No. I won't let you go.
- You must.

I was once the one who said
our love could not be.

An emperor's daughter
and a common artist.

And it was you
who convinced me

that our love was stronger
than dark magic.

You may not believe that

but I do.

I will stow away on Li's boat
and sail to the Swan Princess.

You must follow.

We'll soon be free
to be together.

I know it.

Mei Li wouldn't
let me leave

without telling me goodbye,
would she?

No, Master Li.

I've never tutored a more kind
and thoughtful person.

She'll be here.

Of course I will.

There you are.

I wish you could come.

Oh, you're so kind.

I'm so sorry that Father...

don't worry about me.

You have a dream to fulfill.

And my heart
will always be with you.

The tea leaves have spoken.

Li's journey
will be safe.

Hmm. That is good.

I want you to break the spell
on Mei Li and Chen.

You've read the spell,
Divine Emperor.

Only your child
can break it.

But surely you can...

I can do nothing.

Be strong,
Divine Emperor.

She will surrender
in time.

Well, we will see.


Warn Prince Li.

Tell him
to get below deck.

Cut her off!

She's over there.

Hurry. Hurry.

- No.
- There she is.

You're not going anywhere.

Protect yourself!

I'm so lucky, Ru.

To sing at the Swan Princess
Music Festival.

An honor indeed.

But we should go below now,
Master Li.

Too much sea air
can damage the voice.

I suppose you're right, Ru.

- Let's go.
- On the other hand...

just the right amount
of sea air

can be a good thing.

Oh, okay.

You always know best, Ru.


You screamed for me,
dear queen?

Do you know what I see
down there, Chamberlain?

Uh... No.

Lord Rogers
giving a castle tour

to the Music Festival

Four of them.
Not five. Four.

Prince Li
still hasn't arrived?

Of course he hasn't,

because you haven't been here
watching for him

every single minute
of every single day.

- But... But...
- Oh, no excuses, Chamberlain.

Just make it

See it.
See the ship.

And so it was

that our late, beloved Scully
saved the Swan Princess.


So this animal could walk
and talk to humans?

Why, of course.

In our kingdom,

animals walk and talk
all the time.

All right. Everyone good?

- Okay.
- Yeah.

- Why not?
- Sure.

Excellent, then.

Today, a special treat.

I'll show you
where you'll be performing.

The acoustics
are state-of-the-art.

Okay, come on.

It's getting there.

Puffin, old friend.

Can you do that thing
where you drop a pin?

I want them
to hear the acoustics.

If you don't mind, Rogers,

the situation demands
our complete attention.

All right. Just a skosh higher
on the left side.

a skosh would be too much.

A smidgen will do.

No, wait a second.
How can that be?

Yeah. A skosh is smaller
than a smidgen.

Oh, is that so?

Well, as the former Minister
of Weights and Measures...

Rogers, please.

...I can assure you
the sequence

is a touch, a skosh,
and then a smidgen.

A wee tick
comes before a skosh.

What's a "wee tick"?

Oh, it's about like this:

- Aah!
- I'm sorry.

Everyone, freeze.

What did I tell you?
Perfect acoustics.


Lucas. Heh.

You finally came back.

Well, I couldn't miss
your coming-of-age ball.

Wow, you've grown up.

You too.


I'm really sorry.

No, no. It was worth it.

I mean, it's fine.

So you've been teaching people
how to grow flowers?

Yep. Mostly in countries
where people don't have much.

Sounds like
you're doing the work of angels.

Speaking of angels,
you're pretty good at that harp.

You wanna learn?
I can teach you.

Eh. A little too fancy
for me.

I'm more of a

kind of guy.

Well, hopefully
you're not too primitive

- for dancing.
- Ooh. Dancing?

There's tons of dancing
in a coming-of-age ball, Lucas.

And I'm putting you
on my dance card.

If you're willing to risk
sore toes, princess,

I'm willing
to step on them.

Uh, I better go.

Yeah, my parents
don't even know I'm back yet.

Oh. Heh.

Coming back tomorrow?

Heh. I'll bring fresh tulips
just for you to crush.

No boat.
Gee, no boat. No boat.

Hi, Chamberlain.

Do you still have my dance card?

Uh. Heh.

It's not filled out yet.


No boat.

What are you doing?

Aah. Our swords.

Prepare for battle,

coming aboard.

10 to one.

Aye, but I never cared much
for math.

So it's our final hour,

It appears so.

Then I guess now's the time
to tell ye me secret.

You got a little something
stuck in your teeth.

Well, then,
your breath could slay dragons.

Then perhaps we have a chance
with these rogues after all.

Shall we?

For the Swan Princess!

We'd better
get out of here

before the welcome committee
sees us.

Oh, no.
I am the welcome committee.

She's beautiful.

I am Prince Li,
of noble birth.

I bring the Swan Princess
greetings from my father,

the emperor of Cathay.

And we have something
for you as well.

Is it common to laugh
at another's misfortune

in this kingdom?

It is not.

Please accept
my most sincere apology.

It is a trifle.

My father taught me

an emperor
who cannot abide ridicule

cannot abide the throne.

Your father
is very wise.

Now, that is how
a future king behaves.

"Do you think
Alise would ever...

marry a regular guy?"

You mean,
a regular guy named Lucas?

I'm crazy, right?

You need a little crazy
to make your dreams...

"...come true."

Well, now,
what do you mean, you see smoke?

I mean, when I look,
my eyeballs see smoke.

What kind of smoke?

The smoky kind of smoke.

Smoke, huh? Okay, let's go.


I beg your forgiveness
for our intrusion.

We mean no harm.

Who are you?

I am Princess Mei Li,
and this is Chen.

Let me see, now.

You were making a gift
of fireworks

for the Swan Princess?

It is our custom.

This one accidentally lit.

I have caused alarm for you,
and I am so sorry.

And that's how we came
to be here.

Oh. We'll do whatever we can
to help you.

You have our promise.

One last thing.

My brother cannot know
I am here.

I must not distract him

from the promise he made
to our father.

Well, that means
no one can know you're here.

Except us.

Quickly, this way.

Well, it appears it was just
a harmless smoke bomb.

I see.
Well, thank you, Puffin.

Now, now. Is there any need
to investigate further?

Nope, nope, it's fine.

Now, if you don't mind,
I need some sleep.

I'm really draggin'.
I mean, I'm tired.

I'm not a dragon.
No one's a dragon.

Good night.

And that's my grandfather.
King William.

And now,
Chamberlain will take you

to the royal kitchen
for a special treat.

This way.


This tour is pleasant,

but I must excuse myself.

I have things
much more important to do.

Such as?

Practicing. Winning.

Well, they all seem
to be enjoying it.

Their dedication
is not like mine.

The kitchen is this way.

You are going to love

Chef Ferdinand's
famous Epiliña cookies.

Well, I don't know
about "famous." Heh.

Well-known, maybe.

Perhaps legendary.

Heh. Indeed, they are.

Please, try one.

What do you think,
Prince Li?

I am not at all fond
of these.


Oh, well, I...

Heh. Uh...

Maybe I have
something else.

You don't need to offer
anything else, Ferdinand.

These are perfect.

And now it's time to see
the royal library.

That was a very unkind thing
you said to Ferdinand.

In my country,

is a most important virtue.

Perhaps it is not the same

We value honesty as much
as you or any country does.

But we also value manners,
which you don't seem to have.

Oh, I hope Prince Li loses.
I really do.

To have that boorish bag of wind
sing at my coming-of-age ball

would really be too much.

Uh... No. "Bag of wind."
I hear you.

Well, you wouldn't find it funny
if you'd been there.

he's probably a good guy

who just does things

Boys always take
each other's side.

where I come from,

is a most important virtue.

We must work

When we broke
the spell,

I was lying right here
because, well...

Because you flew here
as a swan,

but then you transformed,
and you died.

- Yes.
- And you died

because Derek fell in love
with a different woman.

Is that how they tell the story
where you're from?

Yes. You couldn't find her,

so you fell in love
with another woman.

No, no, I didn't fall in love
with another woman.

I just made a vow
of everlasting love

to another woman.

I was tricked.

The woman I made the vow to
was a haggard old woman.

But I couldn't tell
the difference

between her and Odette.

Little help here?

Prince Derek
has only ever loved me.

And that love
broke the spell.

Right. So when you go back,

if you could set
the record straight...

Aah. The sun.

Quickly, lie here.

And I was kneeling next to her,
sort of cradling her.

But Chen is the one
with the spell.

Okay. Switch it up.

And I said,
"I love you, Odette."

And then I kissed
her forehead.

I only want
to break the spell...

to prove my love.

I love you, Chen.

Your kindness and courage.

I always have.

Do you feel different?


But didn't you say,

"I make a vow
of everlasting love"?

No, that was before.

I'm pretty sure
you did.

you were kind of dead.

Oh, right.

This is not working.

I have made a thousand vows
of everlasting love.

As have I.

There must be
a different way. Some...

Scully. We need Scully.

Of course.


Aah. Well, good job, boys.

A little wordy,
but very impressive.

And now, our... Heh.

Ahem. And now,
our festival finalists.

From Indus...


From Kievan Rus...


From Azania...


From San Salamanca...


And finally...

from Cathay...

Prince Li.

Oh, can't wait.

Ladies and gentlemen,

please welcome
the Swan Princess,

Princess Odette.

Thank you.

Not too long ago,

when the darkness
of Rothbart's spell was lifted,

we vowed that every year

we would celebrate
love and light.

And what better way
than with music?

Now, each night this week,
at the end of our show,

one of our finalists
from around the world

will perform.

And this year,

the winner will also sing
for the first dance

at Princess Alise's
coming-of-age ball.

Thank you.


And now, let's meet the judges.

Switch. Oh, no.

She's number one in the
kingdom and number one in your heart.

No one's cooler than our ruler,
Queen Uberta.

He's a scientist, inventor,
and raconteur.

The brain you can't explain,
Lord Rogers.

He's a frog.


What about, "Jean-Bob,
a handsome prince"?

Now let the festival begin.

Please welcome
our first finalist to perform.

From Azania, Humbelani.

Okay, cue Humbelani set.

Dearest Humbelani...

I am moved beyond measure.

I have a feeling

we may just be hearing from you
again at the ball.

Thank you.


I think
it was a little pitchy.

That's how you get ratings,

What are you booing me for?
He's the one who can't sing.

Now, that's what I call

I'd really be okay
if Humbelani won.

I said,
anyone but Prince Li.

Apologize? To him?

We can't have people

we favor one finalist
over another.

- But...
- And most of all, dear,

we must not let people think
it's okay to be unkind.

It's gonna be really hard.

Oh, dear,

there are many hard things
to do in this world.

Swimming the English Channel,
reaching the North Pole,

my hairdo every morning.

But the hardest of all...

is apologizing.

Well, that's what I've heard,

First, she disrespects me
with a gift of dogtail.

Cattail, Master Li.

An insulting gift
either way.

And now this.
She has hurt my chance

to bring honor to my people.

I am certain
you will win.

And you will sing
at the ball too.

What do I care about that?

It will only add to
the honor of winning.

Your father would want that.

Yes, I suppose.

But that Princess Alise.

She is insufferable.

Do you hear, Ru?

Yes, Master Li.

Prince Li,
I'm sorry if you were offended.

No. Uh...

I'm sorry I offended you.

Just be your honest self.

You'll do great.

No, no, no. Wait.


I was told to meet you here.

Yes. Um... Look.

- I...
- What is this?

Oh, heh, it's my harp.

It's wonderful.

I have something like this
at home.

Would you like to play?

I would love to.

Our strings are arranged
the opposite way.


- Do you mind?
- Oh, no, not at all.

Yes. I no longer feel

like I'm sitting backwards
on a horse.

You are very good.

Thank you.

My father made us practice
every day.

But my sister refused.

She said it was too hard.

That was incredible.

It really was.

Look, I'm sorry
for what I said last night

and for
the way I welcomed you.

The fuzz and everything.

Let's start over,
shall we?

I am Prince Li
of noble birth.

I bring you greetings.

Prince Li.


I see. I see. Okay.

Well, there are very few ways
to break a spell, you know.

Most famous, of course,
thanks to these two,

is the vow
of everlasting love.

But didn't the vow
kill Odette?

Nope. She's alive.
Standing right here.

Let it go, darling.

I broke the spell.

I know. We all know.

Do we?

All right,
moving right along.

The next most famous is
true love's kiss.

I assume you and Chen
have smooched?

Oh, many times.
Thousands of times.

All right, then.
Magic potions it is.

Potions. Potions.
Who's got the potions?

We got love potions,
potions to make you rich,

potions to flatten
your tummy?

It's called sit-ups, people.

Ah. Transformational potions,
right here.

Okay, dachshund to human,
dingo to human.

Here we go, dragon to human.

First, a few questions
about your dragon friend.

- Scales or fur?
- Scales.

- Wings, no wings?
- No wings.

or just hot breath?


Okay, good. Now,
let me see those ingredients.

Got it, got it, got it.


We need a drop
of dragon blood.

where do we...?

How about right there...?
What about right here?

These scales are like steel,
big guy. Way to go.

Is there anything
we can use instead?

I'm afraid not.
It's not like a recipe

where you can swap out butter
for applesauce.

I know what to do.

So how'd the apology go?

It was fine.

- You two are friends now?
- I guess.

But he's still
a boorish bag of wind, right?

What happened to
"He's probably a good guy"?

I'll switch places
with you.

Uh, it's okay.

Good luck, mademoiselle.

Oh, and for the record,
I disagree with Lord Rogers.

Your dress doesn't look anything
like an old potato sack.

Please welcome,
from Kievan Rus,

Oh. Transcendent.

I couldn't agree more.

I do have one little, tiny,
tiny suggestion.

Yes, I know. You tell someone
my dress look like potato sack.

- What?
- I...

But this dress
is made by my mother.

And I think is beautiful.


Who loves her dress?

How's it feel,
Lord "Wrongers"?

Look over there.


It's so

It's like a dream.



Come meet the finalists.

This is my friend Lucas.
He's the best tulip farmer ever.

They are so beautiful.

I've never
seen anything like it.

- Such color.
- Please, have one.

- Thank you.
- They're gorgeous.

How kind.

Oh. Here's one for you, Li.

- Oh.
- Lucas.

No, no. This is good.

In my country,

when you give someone
a broken flower,

it reminds them that
we live among broken people

and must help them.

So I am honored
for the reminder.

You are sure it is safe?

I'm sure.

He can do that thing
where you hit the bull's-eye,

then the arrow
that hit the bull's-eye...

and then you hit...

I'll tell you about it later.
It's fantastic.

Better try again.

Hold on.

Aah. Got it.

Okay, quickly now.

- Oh, no.
- On the upside,

that's gonna give you
a better grip.

you're still a dragon.

Was something wrong
with the potion?

I think those dried truffles
may have passed

their "enjoy by" date.

All right, my friends,

it's time I got a look
at the actual spell.

Not one negative word
from you.

Holy frijoles, heh,

You might just be
número uno.

Maybe you should...


Oh, come on.

I never knew my mother.

She died
when I was very young.

- Mine too.
- But I thought...

No, the prince and
princess are my second parents.

I lost my first parents.

I am so sorry.

No, please don't be.

I mean, I wish
I had known my mother.

And I miss my father
every day.

But to get a second mother
and father,

so kind,
so loving...

Life has been much more kind
than cruel to me.

You deserve
your good fortune.

your father?

I know
he loves me.

But he can be
very hard.


My twin sister
defied his wishes.

In return,
he broke her heart.

I'm so sorry.

I was wrong
about you.

You're very kind.

I was wrong too.

Very wrong.

Good night, princess.


- Did you...?
- No idea.

You've been
in my father's palace

for a long time,
haven't you, Ru?

I knew your grandfather,
Master Li.

You were there
when my father got married.

Indeed, I was.

So how old was he then?

Just your age, Master Li.

Really? I didn't know.

Is Master Li thinking

18 would be a good age
to find an empress of his own?

The thought
never crossed my mind.

Who would I marry,

Certainly not that insufferable
young Princess Alise.

Good night, Master Li.

"I need your help,
skinny professor.


Come to the castle...

"...right away,
young tree climber."



Everything was going perfectly,
and then he shows up.

And he starts
breaking flowers,

"Oh, I'm so sensitive..."

and, "Watch me
play the harp backwards."

It's over, Rogers.
I've lost her.

Two words. Fiddle-faddle.

Li may be royal,

he may sing like a bird,

he may be strong
in spirit and limb,

he may be handsome
as the day is long...

All right, already,
I get it.

But you, you, young Lucas,

have something
he can never take away.

- What, jealousy?
- No.

You're number two
on Alise's dance card.

That's it?
That's your solution?

Nothing is as intoxicating
to a young lady

as being spun about a ballroom
to the old one-two-three.

If you want to win Alise back,
you'll start learning right now.

What if Prince Derek
had given up

when Princess Odette
was captured as a swan?

What if he said
it wasn't possible to find her?

None of us would be
where we are today,

including you.

But I'm not Prince Derek.

If I can find the spell,
I can break the spell.

Most times.

Come, dark water.

Show me
where they meet each sunset.


The spell
must be in jeopardy.

I should check it
for a weakness.

I hope I can remember
all this.

My father's
sorceress is very dangerous.

I hope I have not put Scully
in peril.

There's only one way
to capture Scully.

And it's not easy.

Did you think Fang
doesn't know how to capture...?


Say goodbye to your dark water.

No. No!


Watch this.

Yes. That was amazing.

Of course.
He does riding tricks.

Whoa, boy.


- May I?
- Thank you.

You are so beautiful.


We better go.

I'm in love.

I admit it.

I mean, I know
I said she was insufferable.

And she was, I thought.

But then something changed.

And she became...


Yes. Sufferable.

Very sufferable.

I've never met a girl
as sufferable as she is.

You'll tell Father
it wasn't my fault, right?

Falling in love

is never anyone's fault,
Master Li.

But you must remember
the promise you made

to your father.

I will.

I will win
this competition.

And I will win Alise's heart
as well.

Lose something?

How can you choose him?
I don't understand.

Neither do I.

It just happened.

But I thought we...

I'm sorry, Lucas.

I knew I was crazy to think
that we could end up together.

And now for our
final performance this evening.

You first,

Thank you.

Take your time, Jean-Bob.

Let the drama grow.

Wait for it. Wait for it.

That was a disaster.

Oh, I agree.

Jean-Bob means
a disaster,

because, well,
its beauty destroyed us.

Perfectly spoken,


No, I mean it was pitiful.

Yes, exactly. Pitiful.

I am full of pity for anyone
who didn't get to hear it.

You're spot-on today,

Oh, yes,
so positive and inspiring.

I'm negative and dispiriting.

Jean-Bob has helped us all

to see the beauty
of Samar's song.

Okay, now go straight across
from that vertical line.

Very good. Now,
add a little upward flair.

Hey, that's it.

That's it.
That's exactly what I saw.

Now, how about that?

If my old brain's still working,
that's it.


There's only one way
to break the spell.

"Your child must surrender
true love."

I didn't wanna say it

The last way to break a spell
is by sacrifice.

Someone has to sacrifice
something precious.

I cannot let you
spend your life like this.

I'm ready to do
what I must.

I surrender my true love.

I surrender my true love!

Can you not hear me?

I surrender!

I do. I surrender.

Why isn't it working?

Because you can't.

Your head may want to,
but your heart can't let go.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry, Chen. I'm sorry.

If you cannot set me free,
then I will set you free.

And if you love me,
truly love me...

you will find another.

No. No.

Goodbye, my darling.






And finally,

all the way from Cathay,

Prince Li.


Me in love.

The judges have reached
a unanimous decision.

No matter what the outcome,

you all have helped us celebrate
the power of love.

And the winner
of this year's festival is...

Prince Li.

I had a feeling
you'd come here.

Are you willing to pay the price
to get what you want?

I'm here, aren't I?

Then be a man,

and dance with me.

One, two, three.

One, two, three.

The basic movement of the waltz
is a square, two...


A regular square,
not a trapezoid.

Regular square. Got it.

One, two, three.
One, two, three.

Feel it, two, three.

Don't fight it, two, three.

There you go. That's better.

Now, your head
should always turn

in the direction
your body is turning.

Turn right.

Ow! Unh.

The other right.

Don't give up on me.

I can do it.

One, two, three.
One, two, three.

Better. Better. You see?

Waltzing is all about
the rise and fall.

Rise and fall.
Rise and fall.

Rise and fall.

Rise and...

Please tell me
that isn't my foot.

On second thought,

perhaps you should
try chocolates.

No. You said dancing
would win Alise back.

So dancing
it's going to be.

I like your pluck, boy.

I'm not losing her to Li
without putting up a fight.

One, two, three. One...

Try to stay on the dance floor,


I can't wait.

Chamberlain, dance card.

Yes, yes.

Good. Derek is first,
of course. Heh.

Second is Lucas?

Well, yes. Alise, she...

No, no, no.

Put in Prince Li instead.

This will be Alise's
only chance

to dance with young men
from every corner of the world.

Yeah. Whoo!

My father would die if he saw
how much fun I was having.


What is all this?

Okay, you can't tell

I was a spy once.

- A spy?
- Mm-hm.

Me and Lucas.


These were all of Lucas'
bow ties.

But, of course,
they're not really bow ties.

They're spy tools.

Lucas figured them all out.

He's super smart.

And this? I will guess.

It is a crutch
that acts as a harpoon.


No. It's just a crutch.

Lucas broke his leg
defending me.

He was very brave.

Lucas' spy suit.

He felt shy about it.
I don't know why.

He was so handsome in it.

We better get dressed
for the ball.

Very well.

I had such fun today.

And I can't wait
to hear you sing tonight.

Dear Lucas.

I thought you might like

an updated outfit
for the ball.

Yours, Lord Rogers.

Hashtag "good luck."

Hashtag "you can do it."

Hashtag "win."

He'll be here.

I cannot live without him.

And he cannot live
without me.

He will be here.

He must be here somewhere.

Chen? Chen.



If I come to you tonight,
dear one...

It's me. I'm here.

...then I will come to you
every night

for the rest of our lives,

and you will never be free.


Go, my love.


Chen, where are you?

He was here, wasn't he?
I know it. Did I miss him?


It's beautiful, Mother.

I'm sorry,

Mei Li?

He won
the competition.

And tonight
he'll sing at the ball.

I'm so happy for him.

He has brought honor
to our people.

Would you like to come
and listen?

We'll be back soon.

And now...

And now,
a final round of applause

for our festival finalists.

And this year's winner

of the Swan Princess
Music Festival...

Prince Li.

It's our special privilege

to celebrate the coming of age
of Princess Alise.

For Alise's first dance
with her father,

we will be favored
to hear again

from Prince Li.

Queen Uberta.

I want to ask
your gracious permission

to break tradition
this once.

I ask
that while I sing tonight,

that my friend Lucas...

dance with Princess Alise.

What...? I...

Rogers, what should I do?

Do it. Do it.

Oh, yes.

Of course.

He's headed for the castle.

You look beautiful

Thank you.

May I?

Now pull her
to you

ever so slightly...

had The strength ♪

Mei Li.


What's going on

You broke the spell.

Li broke the spell?

"Your child must surrender
true love."

Of course.

He's the emperor's child

Well done, Master Li.


Don't even think about it.

I'm told you wanted to
see me, princess.

I wanted to say...

thank you.

And that...

I will never forget you.

Nor will I.

Goodbye, Prince Li.

Goodbye, princess.
