Watch the scenes now with English subs, translations by goldpanner!
(Vaneloppe pushes her cart to the race track despite continuing to glitch out.)
Vaneloppe: That's weird. This is usually when the qualifier race begins.
???: Hello my loyal subjects!
(Suddenly, she spots King Candy and Sour Bill run onto the track, glancing behind in a panic.)
King Candy: Are they still there?
Sour Bill: Most likely.
King Candy: Dear me, how terrible. Who do they think they are, sneaking into my kingdom like that…
Sour Bill: Someone even more dangerous has appeared.
(He gestures to Vaneloppe off in the distance. King Candy angrily approaches her.)
King Candy: Vanellope! I knew it. You're the one behind all this commotion!
Vaneloppe: What? I have no idea what you're talking about! Besides, isn't the race more important? It's time for preliminaries.
(As the two continue to argue, Sour Bill checks back behind him. He tries to get their attention.)
Sour Bill: They're here!
(Everyone looks over to see a hoard of Heartless coming their way.)
King Candy: This is no time for racing!
(He and Sour Bill run away.)
Vaneloppe: Hey, wait! What’s going on?
(Player runs forward to face the Heartless.)
Vaneloppe: He's got a point. There’s no way we can race with these things around.
(She turns to Player.)
Vaneloppe: I'll leave it to you!
(Vaneloppe runs away.)
(As Player continues to dispatch the Heartless, Vaneloppe sneaks by with Ralph's medal in hand.
Vaneloppe: Now's my chance!
(She kisses the medal and tosses it into the registration cup, locking in her spot in the race.)
Announcer: Vanellope Von Schweetz!
Vaneloppe: Yippee! I'm in the race!
King Candy: I can't believe this!
(Unfortunately, Heartless start to approach Vaneloppe. Player is too preoccupied to protect her, so she starts running off in the other direction, when suddenly she hears a voice call to her.)
???: YOU! Give me back my medal right now.
(She realizes the source of the voice, a horriific green monster who is undoubtedly Ralph, has found her.)
Vaneloppe: Oh boy.
(Ralph chases her through the hoard of Heartless, mowing them all down in the process. King Candy watches, baffled by what's happening.)
King Candy: What is that!?
(Just when it seems Ralph has got Vaneloppe in his grasp, Player leaps in to protect her.)
Vaneloppe: Thanks for the help!
(She runs back to her cart and looks up at the board, esctatic to see herself on the roster.)
Vaneloppe: I finally get to join in! Yaaay!
(She pedals away in her cart. Ralph watches her leave, stunned. He attacks Player who continues to obstruct him.)
Ralph: Get out of my way!
(Player clashes with Ralph, when suddenly a giant cupcake falls from the sky, trapping Ralph within. He loses his balance and is left lying on the ground, watching helplessly. King Candy hastens towards Player.)
King Candy: My goodness, thank you for helping us deal with those weirdos…
(Player corrects him.)
King Candy: Oh, so they're called Heartless…
(He smiles mischieviously and then approaches Ralph.)
King Candy: And to think, monsters like this would show up as well…
(He turns to Player. )
King Candy: Things got pretty dicey for a moment, but thanks to you, we made it out relatively unscathed. And it looks like we’ll still have our race before the arcade opens. Thank you so very much.
Now, time to get some answers. If you’ll excuse me.
(King Candy steps aside with Sour Bill and whispers to him.)
King Candy: Sour Bill, that glitch cannot be allowed to race. Seize her and bring her to me!
Sour Bill: But, we don't know where she went.
(He realizes something.)
Sour Bill: Vaneloppe appeared at the same time as those creatures. Perhaps she knows something.
King Candy: Why didn't you say that sooner!
(They return to speak with Player.)
King Candy: Do you know Vaneloppe?
King Candy: I see, so you’ve only just met…
As you could probably tell, she’s a bit of a troublemaker in this game.
I was trying to take her in.
I’d like to go after her as soon as possible, but we’ve got to prepare for the race.
Could you go find Vaneloppe? Seeing as how you were able to defeat those monsters, I’m sure it’d be a piece of cake.
King Candy: I see, I see. Thank you. I'll leave it in your capable hands.
(He begins to walk away.)
Sour Bill: Are you sure about this? Seems like they’re from a different game…
King Candy: I don't care. I'll use any tool at my disposal. Doesn't matter what...
(King Candy makes his leave. Sour Bill follows as he rolls Ralph away, still trapped in the cupcake.)
Chirithy: Jeez, are you being soft again? Need I remind you, your mission is to follow Ralph, the guy who might be causing the glitches.
Wait. Speaking of Ralph, that green monster we just saw looked kinda like him, don’t you think??
(Meanwhile, back at the Foreteller's room, Brain reads the note Ava left for him.)
Brain: I knew it…
(He puts the note down.)
(Brain summons his Chirithy. Clad in a cute little hat just like Brain's, with a matching pouch and cape; it's clear who he belongs to.)
Chirithy: It's been a long time, hasn't it?
Brain: Yes it has. But you've been close by this whole time, haven't you?
Chirithy: I suppose I have.
Brain: This is sudden, but I have a request.
Chirithy: Wooow. Just when I think you’ve finally called for me, you’re asking me to run errands? You're such a pain.
(Maleficent and Darkness continue making their way through Daybreak Town.)
Maleficent: I haven't been able to sense anyone recently. Is this place inside "day-tah" as well?
Darkness: It is. Our goal is that tower up ahead.
Maleficent: Is that where I’ll find a way to return to my original time?
Darkness: From that tower, you will be able to return to the real world. Once there, you must locate the ark hidden deep within the tower’s real-world counterpart.
Maleficent: The ark?
Darkness: The ark was originally built to be used to escape into the Ocean Between. However, it was abandoned mid-construction and left incomplete.
Maleficent: Incomplete? If that's the case, it may as well be an ordinary box!
Darkness: But you see, that’s precisely why you need it.
The ark’s destination will not be the Ocean Between, but the future worlds. And because it's incomplete, your body isn't going to be able to withstand the speed needed to make the trip.
In other words, if you ride it, your flesh will be stripped away, and your heart will be the only thing that remains on the ark.
Only as a heart can you travel at the speed of light and break the time barrier.
Maleficent: Only a heart!? Then what will become of my body?
If I lose my physical self, then when I return to my original time, wouldn’t I just be a ghost?
Darkness: At your destination in the future, there will be an intermediary that can reconstruct your flesh, as well as people who remember you. So long as they both exist, your heart will reform your body, and it should return to that vessel.
Maleficent: That's easier said than done. How can you be so certain?
Can you guarantee that an intermediary who will reconstruct my flesh, and people who remember me, will exist in the future?
Darkness: I can. Because according to the Book of Prophecies, you exist in the future.
You mean to say you know what's in the Book of Prophecies?
Darkness: Well, not everything.
(Ephemer meets Brain on the hill overlooking Daybreak Town.)
Ephemer: It's unlike you to call me all the way out here.
Brain: There was something I wanted to discuss, just the two of us.
Ephemer: That’s even more unlike you.
Brain: It was here, on this hill, that Lady Ava told me I would be a Union Leader.
Ephemer: Really? This is where she told me, too.
Brain: Even for a Foreteller, Lady Ava really was a strange one, wasn't she. How do I put it……
Ephemer: She was easy to talk to.
(The two gaze out over Daybreak Town.)
Brain: Actually, there's something I have to tell you, Ephemer.
Ephemer: What is it?
Brain: Apparently, among the five Union Leaders, only one was to be entrusted with a copy of the Book of Prophecies.
Ephemer: The Book of Prophecies?
Brain: Yeah. That way, even when the Foretellers were gone, we would be able to create other worlds and continue gathering light.
Ephemer: But weren’t the worlds converted to data in advance?
(Brain takes out the Book of Prophecies.)
Brain: That’s right. So this was kind of like insurance for the worst case scenario. Something akin to the master data, in case any issues arise within the data itself.
In the end, we made it this far without using it at all.
Ephemer: Wait, are you saying you have the Book of Prophecies?
(Brain opens the Book and shows Ephemer the note that was hidden inside.)
Brain: This note was inside the Book. It contains the names of five people who would be appointed Union Leaders, and the leader who was to receive the Book of Prophecies has been marked.
(He gives it to Ephemer.)
Ephemer: This is…
Brain: Yes. I am not the one who was originally meant to receive the Book of Prophecies. But that's not the only change. Even the leaders themselves are different.
Strelitzia, Lauriam's little sister, was supposed to be a Union Leader.
Ephemer: Oh no……
Brain: And, the one who changed which leader would receive the Book of Prophecies was Lady Ava.
Ephemer: But why?
Brain: By changing which leader received the Book, she took a gamble on the possibility of rewriting a future that had already been decided.
It was Lady Ava's one act of resistance against destiny. That's the message I’ve received from her.
However, I don't think the change in Union Leaders was Lady Ava's doing.
Ephemer: I see…...
Brain: That's why I wanted to ask you directly...
…about the person who wasn't originally meant to be a leader.
(Ven and Skuld wander the streets of Daybreak Town.)
Skuld: It's gotten colder, hasn't it?
Ven: Yeah. It feels like it's going to snow.
Skuld: Aww… I don't do well in the cold.
Ven: Really? I don't hate it.
(Suddenly, it starts to snow.)
Ven: So it can snow in the data world.
Do you think it’s snowing in the real Daybreak Town too?
I wonder where everyone went?
Skuld: I think Brain, and probably Ephemer, are looking for a way to return to our original world. And Lauriam must be searching for clues about his sister?
Ven: Oh yeah……
What should we do?
Ven: For the time being, do you wanna build a snowman?
Skuld: Sure. You know, recently I feel like I’ve forgotten how to have fun.
Ven: Do you think the others can see this too?
Skuld: I’m sure they can.
Brain's Chirithy: There you are! I’ve been looking all over the tower for you.
Ven & Skuld: ？
Brain's Chirithy: I’d like you to come with me for a second.
