Swan Princess wept, as Rothbart had taken the fair Odette to his castle lair at Swan Lake and cast a spell on her that makes her turn into a swan during the day and a human again during the night. The spell can only be broken by a vow of everlasting love. He asks her to marry him every night, but she always refuses. During her captivity, Odette befriends many animals, and tells of her plight. The friends find Prince Derek, and give him a long bow which he fires straight-and-true into the heart of the evil Rothbart. The spell on Odette is broken, and when Derek says that he really and truly does love her, she is revived. The two are soon married, and they live happily ever after, with Odette reclaiming Rothbart's castle as their new home.
