-Is it a girl?

- Yes.

Show me its arm.

- She bears the mark.

- No!

The omen is true.

I must tell my mother.

- Help me!

- I can't.

- They're going to kill her.

Oh, thank you, Ethna. Thank you.

Stand aside for Queen Bavmorda!

You cannot

stop the prophecy!

This child will have no power over me.

Start the ritual.

- No. No!

- Where's the baby?

The midwife.

Find that baby, Sorsha.

Use the dogs.

Bring her back to me alive!

Your reign of terror

is at an end!

She will come back.

and she will finish you!

- Silence, wench.

- My baby will finish you!

- Kill her.

Dada! Dada!

-Dada! Dada!

- Whoa! Whoa!

Dada! Dada!

We found something in the river.

I can't run off and play

with you now, Ranon.

- I've got work to do.

- You gotta come. Hurry!

Come on.

Don't go near it.

We don't know where it's been.

But, Dada, it's a baby.

- It's not like us.

- No. It's not a Nelwyn.

- It looks like a Daikini baby.

- What's a Daikini?

Daikinis are big.

- Giants who live far away.

Oh, she's so cute.

- Can't we keep it, Dada?

- No!

We'll push it downstream and forget

we ever saw it. Come on.

- Come on.

- Ufgood! Willow Ufgood!

Shhh! It's the prefect.

That's all I need.

Keep it quiet.

Don't touch it.

Mr. Burglekutt, my husband

hasn't stolen anything!


Ufgood, you still haven't

paid your debts to me.

Where did you

get these seeds?

Well, maybe I used magic.

You're no sorcerer, Ufgood.

You're a clown.

I sell the planting seeds around here.

Now tell me where you got them.

My family's been gathering them

in the forest since last fall.

- There's no law against that.

Willow, you didn't leave

them alone by the river?


You'll need magic...

if you expect to get your planting

done before the rains start.

I will have this land. And you're

gonna end up working in the mines.

- Baaa-

Oh, you're lovely.

- Yes, you are.

- Kiaya!

- Oh, Willow!

- Good girl. Good girl.

- Under no condition whatsoever...

is anyone in this family

to fall in love with that baby.

Yes, you are. Come on, Mims.

Come on. Come on.

There we are. Come on.

Hey. I will not be ignored!

Mims? Ranon?

- You're gonna be all clean.

Willow, do you think we should

take her to the village council?

No. No.

They'll think it's a bad omen.

There'll be a flood or a drought.

and everyone will blame me for it.

"Willow Ufgood brought around

that Daikini, didn't he?

That's right. He's that

lousy farmer too. Let's get him!

- Willow, calm down.

- Calm down?

Kiaya, tomorrow's my big day.

Love, the High Aldwin hasn't

picked a new apprentice in years.

Tomorrow's gonna be different.

I just know he's gonna pick me.

- Here. Hold her.

- Hey, no. I don't want her. Kiaya.

- Hold her while I get some milk.

- Oh, no, no. Oh.

- Dada, she likes you.

- Bye.

- Bye.

- Come on, kids. Let's go.

I will now magic ally join the rings!

- Whoa-ah!

Thank you, son.

If you're easily shocked.

please turn away.

Give me a ripe one. Good.

- And now, for my final amazing feat.

- I will make this entire pig disappear!

- Mims, see?

- Please, watch very closely.

- Wuppitybairn, deru, deru!

- Well-

- What happened to your pig?


Hey, come here, you!

I had seen enough.


The High Aldwin...

-will now make his choice

for his new apprentice!

- You'll be all right.

Bring forth the hopefuls.

- Good luck.

- Good luck, Dada.

Willow Ufgood, a hopeful?

How did he get picked?

Is this a joke?

- Willow?

Magic is the bloodstream

of the universe!

Forget all you know...

or think you know.

All that your require

is your intuition.

Now, the power

to control the world...

is in which finger?

- No apprentice this year!

- Where's Mims?

- I don't know. She was right here!

Take Ranon in there, quick!

- Mims!

- Mims!

- Mims!

- Dada-

- I'm scared, Dada!

Come on!

- Vohnkar!

- Check to make sure.

- It's dead!

Dada! Dada!

It was looking

for somebody's baby!

- Mommy.

- Kiaya!



- I'm here.

- Oh, Kiaya.

We can't keep

the baby, Kiaya.

We have to take her

to the village council.

Silence! One beast we can kill.

but there may be more.

And you can be assured

that they won't give up...

until they find what

they're looking for!

-It's a sign!

- Who's to blame for this?

We must find the culprit

and throw him in the pit!

- In the pit! In the pit!

In the pit! In the pit!

-In the pit! In the pit!

- Willow.

- Willow Ufgood.

Come forward.

My children found this baby

alone by the river, High Aldwin.

- A Daikini child.

That's what the beasts want.

Let's give it back to them!


- They'll kill her! You can't!

- It isn't one of us.

This child is special!

This child must be taken beyond

the boundaries of our village.

All the way across

the great river...

to the Daikini crossroads.

- Well, who'll do that?

- It seems only fair...

that the man to take

this baby to the crossroads...

be the very man who

plucked it out of the river.

- I nominate Willow Ufgood.


I will consult the bones!

- The bones tell me... nothing.

Do you have any love

for this child?

Yes. Yes. I do.

- The bones have spoken!

Willow Ufgood, the safety

of this village depends upon you.

- Praise the bones!

- Praise the bones!

But you will need help.

Who has the courage to protect

our brave fellow on his journey?

- I'll go with him.

- Ah, Meegosh.

- Excellent choice.
