Sailor Moon S: The Movie 1994.

Sailor Moon S: The Movie ( Japanese: 劇場版美少女戦士セーラームーンS, Hepburn: Gekijō-ban Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn S, lit. ‘ Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S the Movie’) is a 1994 Japanese animated superhero fantasy film directed by Hiroki Shibata and written by Sukenhiro Tomita. It is the second film in the series, following Sailor Moon R: The Movie (1993), and is adapted from a side story of the original Sailor Moon manga series created by Naoko Takeuchi, The Lover of Princess Kaguya. It takes its name from the third arc of the Sailor Moon anime seriers, Sailor Moon S, as Toei Company distributed it around the same time. The film was released in Japan on December4, 1994, as part of the Winter ’94 Toei Anime Fair. In the 2000 Pioneer English adaptation, it was released as Sailor Moon S: The Movie – Hearts in Ice.

Plot – An extraterrestrial ice entity named Princess Snow Kaguya (プリンセス・スノー・カグヤ, Purinsesu Sunō Kaguya) arrives on Earth in an attempt to freeze it, but a fragment of her comet has been lost and she is unable to proceed without it. She has her henchwomen, the Snow Dancers, search for the missing fragment. In Tokyo, a young astronomer named Kakeru Ōzora (宇宙 翔, Ōzora Kakeru) finds the fragment and keeps it in his observatory to study in further. Meanwhile, the Sailor Guardians are enjoying a day in the Juban Shopping District. Luna falls ill and decides to go back to Usagi’s house. Along the way, she collapses while crossing the road, and is almost hit by a car, but is rescued and nursed to health by Kakeru. Luna then develops romantic feelings for him, even kissing him on the cheek in his sleep, leaving Artemis crushed. Luna herself ends up with unrequited love because it is revealed that Kakeru himself has a girlfriend, an astronaut named Himeko Nayotake  (名夜竹 姫子, Nayotake Himeko), and more importantly, because Luna is a cat. The two are devastated because Himeko is oblivious to Kakeru’s belief of Princess Kaguya’s existence. Later, after finding herself unable to reconcile her differences with Kakeru, Himeko leaves on a space mission. The fragment of the comet attaches itself to his life force, and begins slowly stealing his life-force energy, causing him to become very ill. Kaguya later steals the shard, but because it is linked to his life-force, he is brought even closer to death when Kaguya throws the shard into the ocean and creates an enormous ice crystal that will continue to drain away Kakeru’s life-force energy completely. She and her Snow Dancers than begin freezing the entire Earth, little by little. The Sailor Guardians attempt to stop her, only for Kaguya to revive the Snow Dancers using the Crystal. Just before Kaguya could kill the Sailor Scouts, Sailor Moon arrives and tries to talk her out of her plot. Wanting more strength, she activates the mighty powers of the legendary Holy Grail to evolve into Super Sailor Moon, but is easily overpowered by Snow Queen Kaguya. Determined to protect the Earth and its people, Usagi prepares to activate the Legendary Silver Crystal’s immense energy and power. The eight Sailor Guardians, along with Sailor Chibi Moon, combine their own strength and Sailor abilities at once to further strengthen the healing power of the Legendary Silver Crystal, destroying Snow Queen Kaguya and the Snow Dancers head-on, and eliminating the ice crystal in the ocean, as well as her comet. Usagi wishes for Luna to become the mythical Princess Kaguya for one night. Concerned about Himeko’s safety, Kakeru wanders in the snowstorm and is saved by Luna at the exact point Kakeru saved her, transformed into a human. She takes him near the moon, where Himeko, on her space mission, witnesses the phenomenon and realizes that Princess Kaguya does exist. Luna tells him that he needs to start focusing on his relationship with Himeko, and the two kiss. After returning to the Earth, Kakeru takes up Luna’s advice and meets Himeko at the airport, where the two lovingly hug. Artemis meets up with Luna, and the cats reconcile.

Production

Sailor Moon S: The Movie is based on the 135-page side story “Princess Kaguya’s Lover” (かぐや姫の恋人, “Kaguya hime no Koibito”), written and illustrated by series creator Naoko Takeuchi and later published by Kodansha. Dissatisfied that she had left the production of the previous film to others, Takeuchi envisioned “Princess Kaguya’s Lover” as the plot of Sailor Moon S: The Movie, and proceeded to write the story “all in one go.” She modeled the antagonist after an Art Deco antique named “Salome”, while the Snow Dancers are modeled after a German china piece, which Takeuchi thought resembled “a character dancing in a snowstorm.” On July 8, 1994, she traveled to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida as part of her research; there, she watched the launch of space shuttle Columbia. She enjoyed working on the film, and liked the overall result, particularly Luna’s transformation sequence. The film was soft matted for its theatrical release, as it was animated in 4:3 aspect ratio.

English release

The film was first released in North America on VHS by Pioneer Entertainment on August 31, 1999, in Japanese with English subtitles. Pioneer later released the film to uncut bilingual DVD on May 23, 2000, alongside another VHS release containing an edited version of the English dub. Pioneer re-released their DVD on January 6, 2004 under their “Geneon Signature Series” line. The DVDs later fell out of print when Pioneer/Geneon lost the license to the film. The edited version was also shown on TV in Canada on YTV and in the US on Cartoon Network’s Toonami block on November 9, 2001.

The English dub was produced in association with Optimum Productions in Toronto, Canada, and featured most of the original DiC English cast reprising their roles. The edited version of the dub was censored for content and replaced the music with cues from the DiC version of the first two seasons of the anime. The uncut version of the dub was only seen on the bilingual DVD, featured no censorship, and all of the original Japanese music was left intact, with the exception of the DiC theme song being used.

In 2014, the film was re-licensed for an updated English-language release in North America by Viz Media, who have produced a new English dub of the film in association with Los Angeles-based Studiopolis and re-released it on DVD and Blu-ray on October 2, 2018. The film was released to North American theaters with one-day screenings nationwide as a double feature with Sailor Moon R: The Movie, in association with Fathom Events. Dubbed screenings were on July 28, 2018, and subtitled screenings on July 30, 2018. It has also been licensed in Australia and New Zealand by Madman Entertainment.

The Dark Crystal film.1982.

 The Dark Crystal (sometimes referred to as Jim Henson s The Dark Crystal ) is a 1982 puppet – animated high fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. It s stars the voices of Stephen Garlick, Lisa Maxwell,Billie Whitelaw, Percy Edwards, and Barry Dennen. The film was produced by ITC Entertainment and Henson Associates and distributed by Universal Pictures. The plot revolves around Jen, a Gelfling on a quest to restore balance to the world of Thra and overthrow the ruling Skeksis by restoring a powerful broken Crystal. It was marketed as a famliy flim, but was notably darker than the creators previous material. The animatronics used in the film were considered groundbreaking. The primary concept artist  was fantasy illustrator Brian Froud,  famous  for his distinctive fairy and dwarf designs. Froud also Collaborated with Henson and Oz for their next project, the 1986 film Labyrinth. The Dark Crystal was produced by Gary Kurtz, while the screenplay was written by David Odell, with whom Henson previously    worked as a staff writer for The Muppet Show. The film score was composed by Trevor Jones. The film received mixed to positive reviews from mainstream critics; while being criticized for its darker, more dramatic tone in contrast to Henson s pervious works, it was praised for its narrative, aesthetic, and characters, and later garnered a cult following. A prequel television series, The Dark Crystal; Age of Resistance, premiered on Netflix in 2019. Jag älskar den filmen.

  Plot – A millennium ago on the planet Thra, two new races appeared when a shard was shattered from the Crystal of Truth: the malevolent Skeksis whose Continued corruption of the Crystal to extend their lives ravaged Thra, and the gentle urRu, more commonly known as the Mystics, who made their home in the valley of Stones to await for their destiny. The leader of the urRu, the Master Ursu, raised a young Gelfling named Jen whose clan were slaughtered by the Sheksis. As the Great Conjunction of Thra s three suns draws near, a dying UrSu instructs Jen to fulfill a prophecy to heal the Crystal by first retrieving the Shard from Aughra. As UrSu passes, the Skeksis Emperor also dies with the Chamberlain skekSil exiled after losing a duel of succession against the General SkekUng. When the Skeksis learn of Jen s existence, they send their army of giant crab-like Garthim to capture him with skekSil following. Jen meets Aughra and enters her Orrey, which she uses to predict the motions of the heavens as she explained about the Conjunction before Jen select the Shard from a box full of shards. Aughra was about to explain  Jen s mission before the Garthim arrive and destroy the orrery, taking Aughra prisoner as Jen flees. Hearing the call of the Crystal, the urRu leave their valley to travel to the Skeksis Castle. On his journey through the swamp, Jen meets Kira, another surviving Gelfling who can communicate with animals. The two learn more about each other when they accidentally dream- fasted, seeing into each other s memories. They stay for a night with the Podlings who raised Kira, only for them and Kira s pet Fizzgig to flee when the Garthim raid the village with skekSil keeping the Garthim from pursuing then. Jen and Kira discover a ruined Gelfling city with ancient writing describing a prophecy; When single shines the triple sun, what was sundered and undone shall be whole, the two made one by Gelfling hand or else by none. They are interrupting by skekSil, revealing the prophecy was the reason for the Gelfling genocide while trying to trick them into coming with him to castle under false pretenses. But the Gelflings run off and reach the Castle of the Crystal on Landstriders, intercepting the Garthim that attacked Kira s village. While trying to free the captured Podlings, Kira, Jen and Fizzgig descend to the bottom of the Castle s dry moat and use a lower-level entrance to gain access. But they are intercepted by SkekSil, who buries Jen in a cave-in after being refused and takes Kira to Skeksis. skekSil is reinstated while giving Kira to Skeksis Scientist skekTek to be drained of her life essence for SkekUng to drink so that he can regain his youth. Aughra, imprisoned in the Scientist s laboratory, tells Kira to call for help from the captive animals; they break free in response and free Kira while causing skekTek to fall down the crystal shaft to his death. One of the urRu vanishes. Aughra frees herself soon after Kira left and before Jen arrived. The three suns begin to align as the Gelflings reunite at the Crystal Chamber as the Skeksis gather for the ritual that will grant them immortality. Jen leaps onto the Dark Crystal but drops the shard, with Kira taking it after Fizgig is knocked down the crystal shaft by skekUng and is saved by Aughra. Kira throws the Shard back to Jen as she fatally impaled by the Skeksis Ritual- Master skekZog, with an enraged Jen inserting the Shard into the Crystal and fulfilling the prophecy. The Garthim disintegrate and the Podling slaves regain their essence while the dark stone covering the Castle crumbles away to reveal a crystalline structure. The urRu arrive and use the Crystal to merge themselves and the Skeksis into tall glowing beings known as urSkeks. The urSkeks leader explains to Jen they had mistakenly shattered the Crystal long ago, splitting them into two races and decimating Thra, and that Jen s actions have restored them. The urSkeks revive Kira in gratitude for her sacrifice and Jen s courage, and then ascend to a higher level of existence, leaving the Crystal to the Gelflings on the now-rejuvenated Thra.

Henson’s inspiration for the visual aspects of the film came around 1975–76, after he saw an illustration by Leonard B. Lubin in a 1975 edition of Lewis Carroll’s poetry showing crocodiles living in a palace and wearing elaborate robes and jewelry. The film’s conceptual roots lay in Henson’s short-lived The Land of Gorch, which also took place in an alien world with no human characters. According to co-director Frank Oz, Henson’s intention was to “get back to the darkness of the original Grimms’ Fairy Tales“, as he believed that it was unhealthy for children to never be afraid.

Henson formulated his ideas into a 25-page story he entitled The Crystal, which he wrote whilst snowed in at an airport hotel. Henson’s original concept was set in a world called Mithra, a wooded land with talking mountains, walking boulders and animal-plant hybrids. The original plot involved a malevolent race called the Reptus group, which took power in a coup against the peaceful Eunaze, led by Malcolm the Wise. The last survivor of the Eunaze was Malcolm’s son Brian, who was adopted by the Bada, Mithra’s mystical wizards.

This draft contained elements in the final product, including the three races, the two funerals, the quest, a female secondary character, the Crystal, and the reunification of the two races during the Great Conjunction. “Mithra” was later abbreviated to “Thra”, due to similarities the original name had with an ancient Persian deity. The character Kira was also at that point called Dee.

Most of the philosophical undertones of the film were inspired from Jane Roberts‘ “Seth Material“. Henson kept multiple copies of the book Seth Speaks, and insisted that Froud and screenwriter David Odell read it prior to collaborating for the film. Odell later wrote that Aughra’s line “He could be anywhere then,” upon being told by Jen that his Master was dead, could not have been written without having first read Roberts’ material.

The Bada were renamed “Ooo-urrrs”, which Henson would pronounce “very slowly and with a deep resonant voice.” Odell simplified the spelling to urRu, though they were ultimately named Mystics in the theatrical cut. The word “Skeksis” was initially meant to be the plural, with “Skesis” being singular, though this was dropped early in the filming process. Originally, Henson wanted the Skeksis to speak their own constructed language, with the dialogue subtitled in English.

Accounts differ as to who constructed the language, and on what it was based. Gary Kurtz stated that the Skeksis language was conceived by author Alan Garner, who based it on Ancient Egyptian, while Odell stated it was he who created it, and that it was formed from Indo-European roots. This idea was dropped after test screening audiences found the captions too distracting, but the original effect can be observed in selected scenes on the various DVD releases.[6] The language of the Podlings was based on Serbo-Croatian, with Kurtz noting that audience members fluent in Polish, Russian and other Slavic languages could understand individual words, but not whole sentences.

Gordale Scar, one of the locations used in filming

The film was shot at Elstree Studios from April–September 1981, and exterior scenes were shot in the Scottish Highlands; Gordale Scar, North Yorkshire, England; and Twycross, Leicestershire, England. Once filming was completed, the film’s release was delayed after Lew Grade sold ITC Entertainment to Robert Holmes à Court, who was skeptical of the film’s potential, due to the bad reactions at the preview and the need to re-voice the film’s soundtrack. The film was afforded minimal advertisement and release until Henson bought it from Holmes à Court and funded its release with his own money.

Brian Froud was chosen as concept artist after Henson saw one of his paintings in the book Once upon a time. The characters in the film are elaborate puppets, and none are based on humans or any other specific Earth creature. Before its release, The Dark Crystal was billed as the first live-action film without any human beings on screen, and “a showcase for cutting-edge animatronics”.

The hands and facial features of the groundbreaking animatronic puppets in the film were controlled with relatively primitive rods and cables, although radio control later took over many of the subtler movements. Human performers inside the puppets supplied basic movement for the larger creatures, which in some cases was dangerous or exhausting; for example, the Garthim costumes were so heavy that the performers had to be hung up on a rack every few minutes to rest while still inside the costumes. A mime from Switzerland was hired to help choreograph the movements of the puppeteers.

When conceptualizing the Skeksis, Henson had in mind the Seven deadly sins, though because there were 10 Skeksis, some sins had to be invented or used twice. Froud originally designed them to resemble deep sea fish, but later designed them as “part reptile, part predatory bird, part dragon”, with an emphasis on giving them a “penetrating stare.” Each Skeksis was conceived as having a different “job” or function, thus each puppet was draped in multicolored robes meant to reflect their personalities and thought processes.

Each Skeksis suit required a main performer, whose arm would be extended over his or her head in order to operate the creature’s facial movements, while the other arm operated its left hand. Another performer would operate the Skeksis’ right arm. The Skeksis performers compensated for their lack of vision by having a monitor tied to their chests.

In designing the Mystics, Froud portrayed them as being more connected to the natural world than their Skeksis counterparts. Henson intended to convey the idea that they were purged of all materialistic urges, yet were incapable of acting in the real world. Froud also incorporated geometric symbolism throughout the film in order to hint at the implied unity of the two races.[17] The Mystics were the hardest creatures to perform, as the actors had to walk on their haunches with their right arm extended forward, with the full weight of the head on it. Henson himself could hold a position in a Mystic costume for only 5–10 seconds.

The Gelflings were designed and sculpted by Wendy Midener. They were difficult to perform, as they were meant to be the most human creatures in the film, and thus their movements, particularly their gait, had to be as realistic as possible. During scenes when the Gelflings’ legs were off-camera, the performers walked on their knees in order to make the character’s movements more lifelike. According to Odell, the character Jen was Henson’s way of projecting himself into the film. Jen was originally meant to be blue, in homage to the Hindu deity Rama, but this idea was scrapped early on.

Aughra was originally envisioned as a “busy, curious little creature” called Habeetabat, though the name was rejected by Froud, who found the name too similar to Habitat, a retailer he despised. The character was re-envisioned as a seer or prophetess, and renamed Aughra. In selecting a voice actor for Aughra, Henson was inspired by Zero Mostel‘s performance as a “kind of insane bird trying to overcome Tourettes syndrome” on Watership Down. Although the character was originally voiced by Frank Oz, Henson wanted a female voice, and subsequently selected Billie Whitelaw.

The character Fizzgig was invented by Frank Oz, who wanted a character who served the same function as the Muppet poodle Foo-Foo, feeling that, like Miss Piggy, the character Kira needed an outlet for her caring, nurturing side.[6] The character’s design was meant to convey the idea of a “boyfriend-repellant”, to contrast the popular idea that it is easier to form a bond with a member of the opposite sex with the assistance of a cute dog.

The Podlings were envisioned as people in complete harmony with their natural surroundings, thus Froud based their design on that of potatoes. Their village was modeled on the Henson family home.[17]

In designing the Garthim, Froud took inspiration from the discarded carapaces of his and Henson’s lobster dinners. The Garthim were first designed three years into the making of the film, and were made largely of fiberglass. Each costume weighed around 70 lbs (32 kg), thus Garthim performers still in costume had to frequently be suspended on racks in order to recuperate.

The Dark Crystal was the last film in which cinematographer Oswald Morris, BSC, involved himself in before retiring. He shot all the footage with a “light flex”, a unit placed in front of the camera which gave a faint color tint to each scene in order to give the film a more fairy tale atmosphere similar to Froud’s original paintings.

The film’s soundtrack was composed by Trevor Jones, who became involved before shooting had started. Jones initially wanted to compose a score which reflected the settings’ oddness by using acoustical instruments, electronics and building structures. This was scrapped in favor of an orchestral score performed by the London Symphony Orchestra once Gary Kurtz became involved, as it was felt that an unusual score would alienate audiences. The main theme of the film is a composite of the Skeksis’ and Mystics’ themes. Jones wrote the baby Landstrider theme in honor of his newly born daughter.

The Dark Crystal was released in 858 theaters in North America on December 17, 1982. In its initial weekends, it had a limited appeal with audiences for various reasons, including parental concerns about its dark nature, creative connections with Henson’s family-friendly Muppet franchise, and competition from other films, including Tootsie and the already massively successful E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.[22] It made $40,577,001 in its box office run, managing to turn a profit. The film became the 16th highest-grossing film of 1982 within North America.[23] To date, it remains as one of the highest-grossing puppet animated films of all time, particularly for its domestic gross.

The film received a mixed response upon its original release, but has earned a more positive reception in later years, becoming a favorite with fans of Henson and fantasy. It currently holds a 79% approval rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, based on 47 reviews with an average rating of 6.5/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “The Dark Crystals narrative never quite lives up to the movie’s visual splendor, but it remains an admirably inventive and uniquely intense entry in the Jim Henson canon.” Vincent Canby of The New York Times negatively reviewed the film, describing it as a “watered down J. R. R. Tolkien… without charm as well as interest.”[26] Kevin Thomas gave it a more positive assessment in the Los Angeles Times: “Unlike many screen fantasies, The Dark Crystal casts its spell from its very first frames and proceeds so briskly that it’s over before you realize it. You’re left with the feeling that you have just awakened from a dream.”

In 2008, the American Film Institute nominated this film for its Top 10 Fantasy Films list.

The Dark Crystal was first released on VHS, Betamax, and CED by Thorn EMI Video in 1983. The company’s successor HBO Video re-released it on VHS in 1988 and also released it in widescreen on LaserDisc for the first time. On July 29, 1994, Jim Henson Video (through Disney’s Buena Vista Home Video) re-released the film again on VHS and on a new widescreen LaserDisc. On October 5, 1999, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Jim Henson Home Entertainment gave the film one final VHS release and also released it on DVD for the first time and it has had multiple re-releases since including a Collector’s Edition on November 25, 2003, and a 25th Anniversary Edition on August 14, 2007. It was also released on UMD Universal Media Disc for PlayStation Portable (PSP) on July 26, 2005. It was released on Blu-ray on September 29, 2009.

Another anniversary edition of The Dark Crystal was announced in December 2017, with a brand-new restoration from the original camera negative, and was released on Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray on March 6, 2018.Prior to the 4K/Blu-Ray release, Fathom Events presented the restored print of The Dark Crystal in US cinemas on February 25 and 28, and March 3 and 6, 2018.

A tie-in novelization of the film was written by A. C. H. Smith. Henson took a keen interest in the novelization, as he considered it a legitimate part of the film’s world rather than just an advertisement. He originally asked Alan Garner to write it, but he declined on account of prior engagements. Henson and Smith met several times over meals to discuss the progress of the manuscript. According to Smith, the only major disagreement they had arose over his dislike of the Podlings, which he considered “boring”. He included a scene in which a Garthim carrying a sackful of Podlings fell down a cliff and crushed them. Henson considered this scene to be an element of “gratuitous cruelty” that did not fit well into the scope of the story. In order to assist Smith in his visualizing the world of The Dark Crystal, Henson invited him to visit Elstree Studios during the filming of the film. In June 2014, Archaia Entertainment reprinted the novelization, though included extras such as some of Brian Froud’s illustrations, and Jim Henson’s notes.

During the development phase of The Dark Crystal, director Jim Henson and writer David Odell discussed ideas for a possible sequel. Almost 25 years later, Odell and his wife Annette Duffy pieced together what Odell could recall from these discussions to draft a script for The Power of the Dark CrystalGenndy Tartakovsky was initially hired in January 2006 to direct and produce the film through The Orphanage animation studios in California.

However, faced with considerable delays, the Jim Henson Company announced a number of significant changes in a May 2010 press release: It was going to partner with Australia-based Omnilab Media to produce the sequel, screenwriter Craig Pearce had reworked Odell and Duffy’s script, and directing team Michael and Peter Spierig were replacing Tartakovsky. In addition, the film would be released in stereoscopic 3D.

During a panel held at the Museum of the Moving Image on September 18, 2011, to commemorate the legacy of Jim Henson, his daughter Cheryl revealed that the project was yet again on hiatus. By February 2012 Omnilab Media and the Spierig brothers had parted ways with the Henson Company due to budgetary concerns; production on the film has been suspended indefinitely. In May 2014, Lisa Henson confirmed that the film was still in development, but it is not yet in pre-production.

Ultimately, plans for a feature film were scrapped, and the unproduced screenplay was adapted into a 12-issue comic book series The Power of the Dark Crystal from Archaia Comics and BOOM! Studios, released in 2017.

On July 1, 2013, an announcement was made by The Jim Henson Company, in association with Grosset and Dunlap (a publishing division of Penguin Group USA) that they would be hosting a Dark Crystal Author Quest contest to write a new Dark Crystal novel, as a prequel to the original film. It would be set in the Dark Crystal world during a Gelfling Gathering. The winning author was J.M. (Joseph) Lee of Minneapolis, Minnesota, whose story, “The Ring of Dreams,” was selected from almost 500 contest submissions.

The novel series consists of four books: Shadows of the Dark Crystal, released on June 28, 2016; Song of the Dark Crystal, released July 18, 2017; Tides of the Dark Crystal, released December 24, 2018; and Flames of the Dark Crystal, released on August 27, 2019. Together, the novels serve to establish the setting of the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, focusing on adventures of some of the series’ side characters.

In May 2017, it was announced that The Jim Henson Company in association with Netflix would produce a prequel series titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Shooting began in the fall of 2017 with Louis Leterrier as director. The prequel was written by Jeffrey Addiss, Will Matthews, and Javier Grillo-Marxuach.

Rita realises that their only hope of saving Lyla rests with using the trident to recharge the Moon Rings. Zac retrieves the trident and brings it to them despite Cam’s protests. He recharges the Moon Rings, which the mermaids then use to heal Lyla. After recovering, Lyla tells Zac about the trident’s ability to destroy the Moon Pool.

The girls also race to the chamber to stop Erik. Zac fights with Erik for the stone but he shakes him off and finally activates the chamber.

He also suspects that the symbols on the carving correspond to the outcrops on the reef surrounding the island. He shares his thoughts with Erik and the two decide to investigate the outcrops on the reef. The two find a symbol of a trident on the outcrop but when Erik touches it, he is teleported into a realm of endless water with no way out. Cam rushes back to land and asks Zac and the three mermaids for their help to rescue Erik. While out on the island, Ondina and Mimmi get into a heated argument about their different opinions of Erik causing a rift between them. The group soon realise that they must risk activating the chamber to rescue Erik. Mimmi is able to figure out the order of the pedestal’s code and Erik is set free when Zac activates the chamber. Afterwards, Ondina and Mimmi reconcile with Ondina promising never to let Erik come between their friendship.

She realises Sirena is under the spell of a northern mermaid siren song that affects men and southern mermaids. Mimmi, being a northern mermaid, is immune to the effects of the song. That night, Sirena enchants David with the song and takes him to the Moon Pool to make him her man. Fortunately, Ondina and Mimmi are able to break the spell by singing a counter enchantment song. Sirena comes back to her senses and Ondina uses her moon ring to send David back to his boat with no memory of what happened to him that night.

    Zac plans a surprise party for Evie’s birthday without telling her. He acts like he has forgotten it’s her birthday which sends her into a depression. To cheer Evie up, Mimmi lets her try on her moon ring. When Mimmi is out of the room, the ring accidentally activates and shrinks Evie. While shrunken, Evie falls into a fish bowl that Zac intends to give to her as a gift. The girls take the fish bowl to the party unaware that Evie is inside. At the party, Evie tries unsuccessfully to get someone’s attention. When Evie fails to show up and Zac learns how he unintentionally made her feel, he becomes depressed and believes she is now refusing to talk to him. As Mimmi tries to comfort him, he tells her how special Evie is to him. Evie overhears this and is greatly touched. She also manages to finally get Zac’s attention. The mermaids restore Evie to normal size and she expresses her gratitude to Zac for his beautiful words. The gang then returns to the party to enjoy themselves.

She learns, however, that he has a passion for dolphins and dreams of working with them in the dolphin training program. Chris’s attempts to gain approval for the program fall on deaf ears so Mimmi decides to help him out. She has him close his eyes while she gets in the water and successfully helps him to connect with a dolphin. He and Mimmi then share a kiss. When Chris shows what he can do to the marine park’s director, he is accepted into the dolphin training program. Although Mimmi is disappointed to learn that Chris will be away in America for 3 months, she is happy that she helped him achieve his dream and Chris expresses his gratitude to her before leaving.

    47 21 “New Orders” Grant Brown Michael Joshua 5 July 2015 29 May 2015

    The next full moon is approaching and Zac will have an opportunity to learn about what the merman chamber does. Ondina is worried about what might happen if Zac activates it but Mimmi refuses to go against her brother’s wishes and intends to let him activate the chamber. At the Moon Pool, Ondina runs into Veridia who has come up with a plan to destroy the chamber by having Ondina use her power to turn the chamber’s power against itself when Zac activates it. Ondina agrees under the condition that she, Mimmi, and Sirena be accepted back into the pod and Veridia agrees. Later, however, Zac changes his mind about activating the chamber when Rita informs him that he and Mimmi are descended from the merman who built the chamber and refused to activate it after falling in love with a mermaid. Ondina meets with Zac and manipulates him into continuing with his original plan to learn the chamber’s purpose. Zac agrees under the condition that he goes alone. That night, Zac sneaks away to the merman chamber with Ondina following him. When Mimmi learns that Zac had lied through a vision, she and the others rush to the chamber. When Zac enters the code into the chamber, it seemingly recreates the trident. As Zac reaches for it, Ondina stops him and prepares to carry out Veridia’s orders. The others intervene, warning Ondina that destroying the chamber may destroy the island itself. Zac reaches for the trident again but it turns out to be a hologram that signifies the trident is necessary to start the chamber. With the trident already destroyed, the chamber’s threat is seemingly over. The next day, Veridia lifts the girl’s banishment and informs them that the pod will return by the next full moon.

    With her banishment lifted, Ondina is eager to return to the pod. Her excitement is short-lived, however, when Erik brings up the possibility that returning to the pod will mean she may never be able to see him again. Ondina becomes depressed, not wanting to have to choose between Erik or the pod. Erik decides to throw her a party at the café to cheer her up. When a pendant of Rita’s goes missing, Mimmi accuses Erik of stealing it to make money for the party. Erik does not deny it, but is hurt by the accusation. When the pendant turns up and Mimmi learns that Erik had actually gotten the money using his own secret stash of treasure he collected out at sea, she apologises to him. Meanwhile, Cam and Carly have trouble admitting their true feelings for each other. When the party ends, Cam musters up the courage and admits his true feelings for Carly. They share a kiss and become a couple. Afterwards, Ondina concludes that if Mimmi could not trust Erik, neither will Veridia or the pod. She then makes the difficult decision to leave the pod and stay on land to be with Erik.

    Mimmi is heartbroken by Ondina’s decision to leave the pod and refuses to speak to her. While working at the marine park, a little girl steals a toy dolphin and Mimmi pursues her. Ondina comes to the park to talk to Mimmi about her decision to stay the land. However, both of them ends up getting splashed by the dolphins. The girls transform and are forced to hide, but not without the little girl seeing them. The girl draws in a huge crowd to show everyone the mermaids. Sirena is able to get them out of trouble by telling the crowd that Mimmi and Ondina are actresses in mermaid costumes for an attraction. She then gets Mimmi and Ondina to reconcile, and the girl gets punished for stealing the toy dolphin. Meanwhile Cam and Carly have their first date fishing near Mako Island. Their boat’s anchor gets stuck forcing them to swim to the island and await rescue. Much to Cam’s humiliation, any attempt he makes to impress Carly, she does better. Zac arrives and helps Cam by freeing the anchor and letting him take the credit to impress her. Back at Rita’s grotto, the girls decide that they must find a way to get the pod to see that humans and mermen can be trusted so they can live in both worlds.

    David goes out for some training and leaves Carly in charge of the cafe. When Erik is late for work again, Carly becomes fed up with his frequent tardiness and fires him. Meanwhile, Evie catches a cold and it causes her to lose control of her powers. Whenever she sneezes she lights things on fire. Carly witnesses one of the sneezes and becomes suspicious that Evie is hiding something from her. The mermaids try to come up with a cure, but it merely changes the effect of the sneeze from fire to ice. Eventually, all three mermaids also catch the cold. At the café, Evie sneezes and freezes Cam in front of Carly. Zac and the girls then flee to Evie’s house. When Carly later shows up, demanding answers, she finally discovers Zac’s and the girls’ secret. Carly is upset at first, but she soon forgives Evie and agrees to keep the group’s secret.
    51 25 “The Trident Stone” Grant Brown Sam Carroll 2 August 2015 29 May 2015

    Erik learns from Cam that while the trident was broken, the stone that powers it wasn’t. Erik concludes that it is the stone rather than the trident that can activate the merman chamber. Sirena reveals to Zac, Ondina, and Mimmi that she has kept the stone hidden at Rita’s grotto the entire time. Although the stone has seemingly lost its power, it becomes active again when Zac touches it due to his strong connection to Mako Island. Rita realises that the chamber’s purpose is to drain the magic from the moon pool, which in turn will basically destroy every mermaid. Zac takes the stone and goes to hide it in a safe place. When Erik realises Zac has the stone, he confronts him. Erik believes there has to be more to the chamber’s purpose besides destroying mermaids and becomes angry when Zac refuses to activate the chamber. He demands custody of the stone but Zac refuses to hand it over. Realising the stone is not safe with him, Zac turns to Cam and asks him to hide it. Erik tries to bribe Cam into giving him the stone but Cam refuses to lose his friendship with Zac twice and, instead, gives it back to the mermaids. Erik later finds the stone in Rita’s grotto and is confronted by Mimmi and Zac. Erik uses the stone to drain Zac’s powers. With the stone now in his possession and Zac’s powers inside it, Erik will be able to activate the chamber.

    52 26 “The Chosen One” Grant Brown Mark Shirrefs 9 August 2015 29 May 2015

    With the full moon approaching, Ondina tries to warn Erik not to activate the merman chamber, but Erik refuses to listen even to her. A now powerless Zac has seemingly given up despite encouragement from Mimmi, Evie, and Cam. Zac later musters up the courage and follows Erik to the chamber to try and stop him. The girls also race to the chamber to stop Erik. Zac fights with Erik for the stone but he shakes him off and finally activates the chamber. The girls attempt to destroy the stone with their moon rings, but it merely absorbs their power. The chamber drains the magic from the moon pool and slowly begins to kill the mermaids except Evie. Horrified by what he’s done, Erik tries to deactivate the chamber but is unsuccessful. Evie arrives and helps an injured Zac to his feet. He successfully deactivates the chamber and saves the mermaids but seemingly dies in the process. Desperate to save her brother, Mimmi grabs the stone and places it over Zac’s heart. The stone restores Zac’s power and revives him. The stone then crumbles, ending the chamber’s threat to mermaids for good. The next day, Erik tries to apologise to Ondina, but she refuses to forgive him and breaks up with him and he leaves the Gold Coast in shame. Sirena reveals she’s a mermaid to David. Veridia meets the group at Rita’s grotto and praises Zac for his heroic actions. She makes him and Evie honorary members of the pod and gives Evie her own moon ring. The group joyfully swims out to greet the pod as they return to Mako at last.

    When a Chinese mermaid named Weilan accidentally releases a water dragon from an ancient relic, she flees to Mako Island with the creature in pursuit. Mermaids Ondina and Mimmi must defend Mako Island and the Gold Coast from destruction. Series three debuted in Australia on 15 May 2016 on Eleven and was released on Netflix on 27 May 2016. It features 16 half-hour episodes.

karaktär

Emma har en säker och ansvarsfull, om något kontrollerande, personlighet. Hon tenderar att oroa sig för att saker och ting kommer ur kontroll. Hon är väldigt organiserad. Att leva i en perfekt familjelivsstil och utvecklade hon ett behov av att vara perfektionist. Hon tycker om att vara den mest organiserade av flickorna och kan inte hjälpa men uppmuntra andra att göra detsamma. Förutom att hon var en driven person, ägnade Emma en gång sin fritid i träning för sin regionala simnings  konkurrens. Althouge hon avgick efter att ha förvandlats till en sjöjungfu eftersom det hindrar henne från att simma, Emma behåller lite av sin driven personlighet. Hon verkar vara mer empatisk än sin vän Rikki Chadwick när det gäller att förstå andra människors känslor och dagliga problem. Hon tenderar att uttrycka många oro för sina vänner och skulle till och med gå ut ur sitt sätt att försöka göra det omöjliga för dem, till och med att försöka sitt bästa för att återställa Lousie Chatham s sönderfallande båt. Althouge Emma är ofta den mest samvetsgrann och omtänksamma av de the flickorna, ibland kan hon vara pedantisk och kontrollerade en gång förslår hon att hon tänker tugga ett föreskrivet antal gånger innan man sväljer som en normal praxis.
