The film was followed by another direct-to-video sequel: 2012. She flirts and charms Lord Rogers with a story about how she had escaped a king who kept her locked up and play the accordion constantly. The festival takes place next morning.

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. Whizzer informs Zelda that the notes are in the castle, but Zelda forces Whizzer to help her next scheme. Rogers's love for Zelda annoys Uberta.

Puffin and the others finally meet up with Derek and race toward Zelda's lair. There are lots of high-speed chases, played mostly for humor with pratfalls aplenty. Zelda tries to kill Derek before sending a killing seeker after Odette. On its own, this is a mildly entertaining movie with some funny characters, an admirable heroine and hero, and pleasant, if not memorable, music.
