Rainbow Crystal | Feature Screenplay
All ten-year-old Seraphina wants is to make a friend, because starting out in a new city and school can be scary for anyone, especially for an insecure, young girl who doesn’t make friends easily. After all, Seraphina doesn’t feel like she is anyone special. That is until she meets the best friend of her dreams – eccentric, fun eleven-year-old Josie Lee who makes her feel like she’s the best thing since sliced chocolate cake. Late-night pillow-fights, Ouija-board fun, sneaking out, and deep conversations about the supernatural, lead them to become inseparable with a special bond. They even call themselves soul sisters.
One day, an innocent visit to a metaphysical store ends with a psychic reading that has them making a wish on a shooting star of their truest hearts’ desire. They yearn to escape their realities by venturing inside a world of a rainbow. After making the wish, everything changes… and not in a good way. Fate has other plans. Shortly after, Josie Lee is killed, being struck by a car. Seraphina is left behind devastated, heartbroken, and hopeless.
Walking home from school one day, Seraphina stumbles upon a talking butterfly named Sebastian. He tells her that she is the “chosen one” and that it’s of the utmost importance for her to come with him inside his magical world called Raiven to help save it (much like the one they wished to enter). Seraphina finds herself on a mission to gain order back to Raiven with its six different, colored- realms by returning a powerful rainbow crystal to its wizard owner, Arbit Maximus, which was stolen by the evil witch, Alyssa, and her ugly, drooling trolls. Alyssa and her trolls, along with the power of the crystal, have the potential to take over Raiven and even planet Earth, causing evil to rule and chaos throughout both worlds.
While on her journey, Seraphina encounters many tests, but also mystical creatures whom she befriends and who help her on her mission. There’s Noah (the warrior fairy who protects her), Queen Ivy (the queen fairy of Fairyland), Stella (the unicorn Seraphina unknowingly birthed through her wish on the shooting star who Seraphina communicates with telepathically), the magical elves and dragons who fight alongside her, ultimately defeating Alyssa and her trolls. Most importantly, Seraphina learns that Josie Lee is there with her as her spiritual guide, assisting her in making the right decisions and leading Seraphina to her goal and safety.
In the end, Seraphina returns the rainbow crystal back to Arbit Maximus on the highest realm in Raiven (the violet realm). Her lesson is that Raiven is a world between heaven and earth, and that all living creatures are connected. Humans are usually not able to see it, but doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, unless their hearts and minds are open to it. The message is to believe that magic is possible and to never ever lose hope, and that there is no end after all.
