Princess Alexa?

Princess Alexa?

Princess Alexa, are you in there?


Princess Alexa?

Over here, Brookhurst.

Oh, goodness.

I'm dreadfully sorry, Your Highness.

No problem. How can I help you?

The Equestrian Club has asked

if you might say a few words...

...before their exhibition this afternoon.

You mean, a speech?

Not just for the horses, I'm guessing.

I believe the two-legged members

of the club...

...will be there as well, Your Highness.

Of course.

Brookhurst, please thank them

for the invitation, but--

But you send your regrets.

Of course, Your Highness


I can't do that.

All I really wanna do

ls stay right here

Away from prying eyes

'Cause I really gotta get

To chapter three

And see if I'm surprised

Will the princess slay the dragon?

Will she save the day?

Will she find a brand-new world

That takes her breath away?

What's gonna happen?

I can't wait to see

What's gonna happen?

It's all a mystery

I need to turn the page

Prepare to be amazed

See if she's got it made

It's nothing I'd expect

What's gonna happen next?

Princess Alexa.

The prince of Hilgovia

has arrived for tea.

Your grandmother says she would be

very pleased if you would join them.

All I really wanna do

ls hide right here

And start on chapter four

Maybe this is where the princess

Saves her friends

And claims her just reward

Will she shoot a perfect arrow?

Will her aim be true?

Will she meet a mighty foe

And know just what to do?

What's gonna happen?

I can't wait to see

What's gonna happen?

It's all a mystery

I need to turn the page

Prepare to be amazed

See if she's got it made


It's nothing I'd expect

What's gonna happen next?


Uh, hello, Mother.

The dance instructor is waiting,

and so are your friends.

Oh, Well

No more excuses. The ball is tonight.

You must finally learn

to dance like a princess.

Come now.

Yes, Mother.

Five, six, seven, eight.

Ah, girls.

Girls, please.

We are here

to practise the art of the dance...

...not that hippity-hop.

- Yes, Mr. Primrose.

- Yes, Mr. Primrose.

Sorry I'm late, Mr. Primrose.

Ah, Princess Alexa.

How delightful of you to join us.

Let's pick up where we left off last lesson,

shall we?

Hey, guys.

- Hey, Alexa.

- Hey, Alexa.

The young ladies-in-waiting stand here,

um, waiting.

And then your father, the king,

bows to you, the princess.

The orchestra begins.

And one, two, three, one, two, three.

Eyes up, Your Highness.

Um, Mr. Primrose,

this really isn't my thing.

Nonsense, Your Highness. Just glide.

Two, three, glide, two, three

You're very patient,

but I'm afraid I'm not

No, no, you're doing exceedingly well,

Your Highness.

- I wish I could, but I'm not very

- Just concentrate.

- One, two... Oh!

- Oh!

- Whoa!

- Aah!

I'm so sorry.

Oh, dear, Mr. Primrose.

Ah, yes, well, that's a bit, aah, tender.

I'm so sorry. Are you okay?

Mother, I've tried to learn the dance,

but I just can't.

I'd better just sit this one out.

Nonsense. It's tradition.

Every royal ball for the last 150

One hundred and sixty.

Sixty years has begun with this waltz.

And now that you're 17,

it's your turn to carry on the tradition.


Everybody will be watching me.

That is the general idea, Alexa.

After all, you are the princess.

Um, Your Majesty?

I could do the waltz at the ball

instead of Alexa.

That's a great idea.

Thank you, Jenna.

But Princess Alexa

must be the one to dance.

Worth a try.

If you don't mind, Your Highness...

...I think I'd better see to my ankle.


help me with Mr. Primrose, please?

Aah, I can never remember.

Is it heat and then ice? Oh!

Jenna, Samantha, please... Alexa how to do the dance,

would you?

- Yes, Your Highness.

- Yes, Your Highness.

Sorry you guys have to do this.

Are you kidding?

It means getting to wear

an amazing dress tonight.

Wait a sec.

She didn't say which dance, did she?

Remember this? Heh.

Come on, Alexa.

Ugh, I don't know.

I can't dance like you guys.

Try it. Like we showed you last time.

- Five, six, seven, eight.

- Five, six, seven, eight.

Ugh. Sorry. I can't keep up with you.

You were doing great.

I'm having enough trouble

learning the waltz.

Alexa, you're a princess.

Which means you're good at everything.

So everyone keeps telling me.

Don't worry. You'll do great tonight.

We'll see.

Thanks, guys. I'll see you around, okay?

- Bye, Alexa.

- Bye, Alexa.


I thought you danced beautifully.

You have to say that.

You're my grandmother.

You shouldn't hide your talents, dear.

What are you afraid of?

Other than an epic fail

in front of everyone?

I do wish you had come to tea.

The prince of Hilgovia is very nice.

And he's your age.


you know I don't like that stuff.

Meeting people, giving speeches,

going to balls.

All those horrible things princesses

are forced to do.

- Grandma.

- Princess or not... can't hide from life forever, dear.

You'll never know what you can do

unless you try.


I brought this down for you.

But I've read all your books, Grandma.

Not this one.

I've been saving this for the right time.

"In a kingdom by the sea

lived a princess...

...who had magical powers."

Ah, but you probably won't like it.

Oh, uh, Grandma.

Thanks. You know exactly what I like.

"The princess

could have made flowers bloom...

...or changed the colour of her dress.

But you can't use magic

you don't know you have."

"There in wall of her garden

was a door she had never noticed before.

A door that led to a fantastic world

that she would never forget.

And then, with the flick of a wand,

she discovered she had magic."


How cool would that be if I had magic?

My bed would make itself

New books on every shelf

And then I'd cast a spell


My pets would talk to me

And then we'd all have tea

Create a pair of shoes

That would know all the moves

I'd always find the groove

Feel the beat now

And with the spotlight on

I'd twirl perfectly

If I had magic

Magic, magic

If I had magic

Magic, magic

I'd make a chocolate lake

Turn cabbage into cake

I'd text without mistakes

LOL, yeah

I'd dream a pair of wings

And I would fly away

I'd zoom across the sky

Make it snow in July

I wouldn't be so shy

Pleased to meet you

I'd do just what I want

Like every single day


If I had magic

Magic, magic

If I had magic

Magic, magic

And I could do anything

Suddenly I would be

Everything that I dreamed

I could be

If I had magic

Magic, magic

If I had magic

Magic, magic

If I had magic

Magic, magic

Magic, magic

If I had magic

Your Highness!

Good news.

Mr. Primrose is recovering.

You may continue the dance lesson.

Princess Alexa!



I mean halt.


We know you're there.

You might as well swim out.


I mean, walk out.

Just show yourself.



You there, come out.

Who are you and...?

A tiara?

Wait. Are you a princess?

I'm Princess Alexa.

Ah! Your Highness.
