Plot

Elina, heroine of the Fairytopia films, tells her friend, Bibble, the story of Flutterfield, a faraway kingdom populated by fairies with butterfly wings. Henna, the evil butterfly fairy, has poisoned the queen of Flutterfield in an attempt to take over the kingdom. Due to this, the lights protecting Flutterfield are in danger of going out. These lights protect Flutterfield from the "Skeezites", monsters who eat butterfly fairies, and are connected to the life of Flutterfield's queen. It's up to Mariposa, Zinzie, Rayna, and Rayla to find an antidote to save the queen. They first travel according to the map, but when night falls, they are far from Flutterfield and the Skeezites appear. They engage into a long chase scene, but Mariposa, Rayna and Rayla escape through a gate of red plants. However, the map gets chomped by an Skeezite. Mariposa remembers that there was a sun picture on the map, and she concludes that they should travel west, as toward the rising sun.

They then arrive to the Wilderness, and encounter a little flying rabbit named Zinzie, who is a great thrower and loves fluttercorn, leads them to a mermaid statue in exchange for a packet of fluttercorn. They end up all diving into a lake, and find mermaids. Maripose asks them to tell her the whereabouts of the Cave of Reflections, and the mermaids agree to help them, but they ask for one thing in exchange:Concho shells. However, little merbabies are sleeping and use these shells as pillows, and it is revealed that if you wake the baby, the baby cries and wake up a sea monster. Rayla finds a plant, and wrappes it up until it bears the shape of the conch shells. They gently swap the shells with the plant, but one of the babies gets tickled on the nose by a little leaf that wasn't wrapped properly, and the baby woke up and started crying. This woke up the other babies, whom as well started crying, waking up the sea monster. While Mariposa delivers the concho shells to the mermaids, Rayna,Zinzie and Rayla try to escape the sea monster by swimming in different directions. The mermaids help in the end, and they all escape the sea monster.

Meanwhile, Queen Marabella has fallen ill, and the guards captured the prince who was trying to find the antidote. The Queen's captain of the guards holds the prince in an conversation, and Mariposa's friend sought out the prince, and freed him. However, Mariposa's best friend tells the prince that she has spotted Henna doing evil things. They decide to follow Henna, and they find out that Henna had took control over Skeezites just by mixing a strange liquid and thistleburst.

The mermaids tell Mariposa where to find the Cave of Reflections, and Mariposa and her friends fly off towards it eagerly, only to find out that the cave was guarded by Skeezites. The fairies manage to trick the monsters, and they all escape into the cave. There, they find their own relflections talking back to themselves, and meet the Fairy of the Cave. She leads the group to different sections, where she proclaimes each time "one of you must stay behind". Mariposa was left as the last one, and the fairy guides her toward a place filled with stars. The fairy tells her that one star hold the antidote she needs, and in the end she selectsthe correct star. They arrive back just in time when the Skeezites start attacking everyone at the Royal fairy castle. Mariposa presents the antidote to the queen and Queen Marabella presents each of them with an crown of flowers. Henna manages to get away with the Seezites, fleeing from the light. After the big rescue of the queen, Mariposa felt she belonged again.

Mariposa


Mariposa, a butterfly fairy, is initially introduced in this movie as a friend of Elina's. Her name translates to 'Butterfly' in Spanish. She is the basic heroine of the story. Unlike most of the other butterfly fairies, whose hair range from purple to blue in color, Mariposa shares her familiar blonde with a bit more of a brownish color to it, like the Fairytopia heroine Elina. Throughout the movie, she sports pink butterfly wings.

Mariposa is shown the bearer of a character very different from most of the other butterfly fairies of Flutterfield. While the rest of the land is happy to forget the world outside the last light of Flutterfield, Mariposa loves to imagine the wide world she has not seen. She also loves to read, and much of her imagination feeds on books. We come to know of her love for stars, and she is well aware of the constellations and the figures they form in the sky. The Archer, one of these constellations, is close to her heart and essential to the movie.

She is a gentle, loving and caring person, but feels that she does not belong in Flutterfield and is a misfit of sorts. For this reason, she does not attend parties and balls that most other butterfly fairies are more than happy to be present at. She does not believe she is capable of great things, and puts little trust in her bout of abilities and talents.

Throughout the journey to find the antidote required to save the Queen, Mariposa displays sensibility and knowledge. She is the one who interferes and puts an end to Rayna and Rayla's initial quarrels over petty matters. When the three are faced by Skeezites, she comes up with the brilliant plan of carrying flowers over their heads, so that the Skeezites smell these instead of the three butterfly fairies. She is also the one chosen by her friends to 'go on' in the Cave of Reflection.

Mariposa confronts her own self-doubts and fears in the Cave. She makes the right choice by trusting her own abilities, and thus pleasing the fairy of the Cave who beautifies her wings by enlarging them, darkening them, and giving them a lovely, sparkling glow. At the end, we see her find faith in herself, and believe that, despite her love of reading and the world outside, she does belong in Flutterfield.

Mariposa has a very special relationship with Prince Carlos - the Queen's son and heir to the throne - during the movie. They share a number of interests and, in their first meeting, find that they have been reading and enjoying the same book.
