Synopsis by Michael Betzold

Disney's original animated feature film The Swan Princess was loosely based on the famous ballet Swan Lake. In that film, Princess Odette is about to marry Prince Derek, but he is too enamored of her beauty, so she flees the kingdom. The villainous sorcerer Rothbart kidnaps the princess and turns her into a swan. The customary Disney animal sidekicks rescue the Swan Princess and eventually reunite her with Prince Derek, who learns to appreciate her for more than just her beauty. In this sequel, Odette (Michelle Nicastro) and Derek (Douglas Sills) are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary when they find that the kingdom's fields have been set afire. It's the work of Knuckles, slave to the villain Clavius (Jake Williamson). Clavius hopes to steal a globe containing the forbidden powers with which he wants to enslave the world. Clavius kidnaps Queen Uberta (Christy Landers), and when Derek attempts to rescue her, he too is captured. Odette turns herself back into a swan to save the prince. Once again, Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle, and Puffin the bird come to her assistance to thwart the plans of Clavius.
