[atmospheric music playing]

[dramatic music playing]

[funky music playing]

Hurry! It’s gonna start!

Good evening, daughter.

Joyous New Fire to you.

[scoffs] Whatever.

Punguari, this is your father’s big night.

At least pretend to have fun.

Ugh, fine.


[crowd chattering]

[baby coos]

Let’s go, Erendira.

Okay, mija. Clear eyes, full chancla, can’t lose.

Yep, I haven’t had this much fun since the Earth festival the humans had at your temple to honor you.

[sighs] We’re not having this conversation again.

You are a demigod. Period. You are too young to become a full god.

I’m twelve… thousand years old.

I’m ready to be a full god with my own temple, my own festival, and all the other god swag that comes with it.

You can’t just say it, Punguari.

You have to show me and your father that you’re mature enough to handle it.

I’m totally mature! Remember that week you put me in charge of the moon?

You forgot to raise it three times, and you drew a bunny on it.


Becoming a full god is serious business. There’s powerful magic involved.

If you are ready for that responsibility, there can be disastrous repercussions.

But if you just give me a chance-

[in P’urhépecha] Silence!

[in English] I’m your mother, and I know what’s best for you.

[crowd chattering]

[dramatic music playing]


Hey fam, joyous New Fire to you!

Joyous New Fire, Chipiri.

[muffled talking]

Uh, what’s…?

Yeah, never mind. Don’t wanna know.

[muffled yelling]

No more “becoming a god” talk.

Please, Punguari. Let’s enjoy the New Fire in peace.

[muffled yelling]

[dramatic music playing]

[staff humming]


I’m sorry.

Joyous New Fire to you, Father.

Thank you, daughter. Joyous New Fire to you, too.

Well now, how about we enjoy a Fire Ball match?

You coming, Punguari?

Be there in a minute!

I’m just gonna freshen up a bit.

[ominous music playing]

[electricity buzzing]

[Hawaiian music playing]

Nope. Too wet.

[scoffs] Too modern.

[gasps] That’s it!

I don’t care what my mother says.

I am ready to become a god.

And if she won’t do it, I’ll do it myself.


[both gasp]

[in P’urhépecha] I, Punguari, demigoddess of the moon, summon the power of the mask!

[in English] Oh, man, this is so awesome!

[thunder rumbles]

[in P’urhépecha] Mask of Many Faces, I beseech you!

Give me your magic, make me a god!

[Sisiki, in English] Punguari, no!

You’re too young.

I’m growing up, Mother, whether you like it or not!

You’re not ready for this power. Now hand me that mask.

Stop telling me what to do!



[villagers gasp and scream]

She’s losing control.

Stop her. I’ll buy you some time.

[Chipiri grunts]


[Punguari laughs]

My daughter, please…


[dramatic music playing]

[theme music playing]

[Bobby snoring]

[suspenseful music playing]

[Bobby] Marry me, Lori. Marry me. You’ve made me the happiest boo-boo bear.

[snoring continues]

[rock music playing]

[Ronnie Anne running]

[cat meows]


I’m 12!


[man 1] Shut up.

[woman] Be quiet.

[man 2] Go back to bed!

[man 3] Well, happy birthday.

Thanks one of you! Ignoring the rest!

Ronnie Anne, the moment you’ve been waiting for is finally here.

The Summer of 12 starts… now!

[phone ringing]

I’m 12!

You’re 12!

Now we’re both…

Hit the deck!

[Ronnie Anne and Sid] …12!

What are you doing right now?

About to pass you.

On your left.

[laughs] Hey!

Think I’d let my best friend wake and skate alone on her birthday?

You rock, Sid.

Our Summer of 12 is going to be awesome, because finally we get to spend all day every day at…

[in unison] Xtreme Eddie’s Sick and Twisted 12 and Over Skatepark!

I heard last summer this one kid bit it so hard, he scraped off so much skin you could see his spleen.



And now that can be our spleens!

Just look at this stuff!

The Butt Buster, the Knee Capper, the Whip Lasher, and the Spleen Splitter!

[gasps] And oh, my gosh, Sid!

They have their own emergency room.

[phone ringing]

Oh, one sec. Hey, Mom.

Ronnie Anne, where are you?

I came in to give you a birthday kiss and got a mouthful of pillow.

[yawns] Another box of balloons ready to go.

Carl, shh!

[Ronnie Anne laughs] I’m with Sid.

Well, could you please come home?

It’s very important.

[balloon pops]

[CJ laughs]

CJ, Lalo, come on!

Hurry home, mija.

The cake is ready!

Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake.

[laughs] Okay, Mom, I’m on my way.

Sounds like they’re trying to surprise me.

I’ll be right back.

Okay, but don’t be late.

These legs need some road rash.

[rock music playing]


[Casagrandes muffled] Happy birthday.

[laughs] Where are you guys?

[Maria] You have to pop us out.

[Carl] Like a giant zit.



[Sergio squawks]

Let’s do this, Sergio.

[adventurous music playing]


[Sergio] Watch your step.

[balloons popping]

Happy birthday!

Feliz cumpleaños!

[squawks] Happy birth… ah!

Thanks, everybody.

I can’t believe it. My little girl.

[Carlitos coos]

Aww, thanks, Carlitos.

¡Ai! Hector!

[giggling] Oh, Rosa!

How do you expect me to stand this close to frosting without a taste?

I’m only human.

Aww, the first picture of my niece as a young lady.

Aww! The second picture of my niece as a young lady.

Thanks, Tía Frida.

Careful, mamá, you’re messing up my livestream.

Hey y’all, I’m here on my super sweet prima’s birthday!

Send my cousin some love!

Hey! I wanna see a lot more hearts, people. Let’s go.

Aww, thanks y’all.

Hey, Ronnie Anne, I spent all week writing you an original song!

[guitar strumming]

Oh, cool, Bobby.

[clears throats] ♪ My sister’s birthday ♪

♪ Is today ♪

♪ I just want to say ♪

♪ Rhymes with ay ♪ [screams]


You need some real music for your birthday, cuz.

DJ Carl in the house!

[electronic music playing]

[record scratches]

¡Ya basta, silencio!

Feliz cumpleaños, mija.

I hope all your wishes come true today.

Thanks, Abuela, they are! Because later today, Sid and I…

[sputters] Are you crazy? You can’t tell me your wishes!

I have to go light a candle.

Ronnie Anne, I want to present you with one of my favorite books, The Unabridged and Incredibly Detailed Ancient History of Mesoamerican Civilizations.

Volume One.

Oh, thanks, Tío Carlos.

[squawks] Here’s my present for you.

You’re welc… ah!


Dad, you made it!

I thought it would be fun to give you your birthday money in a puzzle box.

But I lost the instructions on how to open it.

So I also got you this.

Happy smashing!

I love it. [chuckles]

[phone beeps]

Oh, hey, Mom. I’m supposed to meet up with Sid at…

But it’s time for the big reveal. Your present from me.

[exclaims] Come, sit in the birthday chair.

That’s just a regular chair.

Let your mother have her thing.

When I turned 12, your abuela took me on a trip to visit Mama Lupe in her hometown.

Cool. I bet that was fun.

The food, the music… it was the greatest adventure of my life.

It’s something I’ve always wanted to share with my little girl.

We’re going to Mexico!

Oh, cool. When?

Right now.

Start packing.

Wait, what?

[all] Surprise!

It’s true! I’ve been saving up. We’re all going for the whole summer.

Isn’t it exciting?

Aww, the first picture of my niece after her head exploded with joy.

Well, we better get on the road.

But, uh, hold on…

I’ll grab the bags.

I’ll grab the cake.

[CJ] We rented a van!

[Carlota] Michoacán here we come!

Do we have to leave right now?


Mom, we can’t go to Mexico.

What do you mean? Why not?

Because it’s my Summer of 12.

I had plans, my plans, to do my own stuff. Like hang with Sid, and go to Xtreme Eddie’s Sick and Twisted 12 and Over Skatepark.

Sweetie, Xtreme Eddie can wait. This summer is about you and me.

Don’t I get a say in this?


[engine starts]

¡Adios! I wish I could come.

Don’t forget to take pictures with my Flat Arturo, so it’s like I’m there!

[as Arturo] It’s gonna be flat-tastic!


I can’t believe this is happening.

Who wants car cake?

[all] Me!

[car horn honks]

[phone dings]


[kids cheering]


[adventurous music playing]


[Ronnie Anne sighs]

Hey! Only 20 kilometers to go.

Uh, what is that in miles?

No one knows.

I’ll just look it up on my phone.

Ronnie Anne, you are going to love Mexico.

There are so many things I can’t wait to show you.

Mom, I am 12 now. I might want to do my own thing at some point.

Of course. Of course.

I’m sure there’s a few free minutes here and there.

Did you schedule sleep with a question mark?

[laughs] Yeah, I guess I forgot to add sleep, and showers, and bathroom breaks.

But don’t worry, you can help squeeze those into my carefully constructed, laminated itinerary.



[CJ and Bobby gasp]


[squawks] Hey! I’m beauty-sleeping here!

[Carlota] Hey!


¡Ay! ¡Mi ojo!

[all screaming]

[all screaming]

[Sergio] Where’s the brakes?

[loud crash]

[Hector groans] Everyone okay?

[all groaning]

[Carl] I have nopales and itinerary up my pompis.

Good, because I think we’re here.

[festive music playing]

[boat horn blaring]

[seat belts unfastening]


[CJ] Whoo!

[people chattering]

[festive music continues]

[woman] Look at that!

[chattering continues]

Check it out, Ronnie Anne! It’s just how I remember it!

I could get used to this.

[car horn honks]


Whoa. What’s all that wood for?

The biggest bonfire you’ve ever seen!

Isn’t it great? We’re here during the Festival of the New Fire!

You can read all about it in the book I gave you for your birthday.

Ah, shoot. I totally forgot it at home.

Well, that’s okay.

I always carry a spare.


On it!

[Carlos] The Festival of the New Fire is an ancient Mesoamerican tradition that started as a tribute to Chipiri, god of the sun.

The fire represents a new year and new beginnings.

So every year the townspeople build a huge bonfire.

And there’s tons of music…

And food.

Oh, the food.

And of course, there’s the big Fire Ball tournament.

[CJ and Carl] What?

That’s the coolest thing ever!

Playing outside in your chonies? Where do we sign up?

Good news, all!

[itinerary thunks]

I’ve scheduled 24 minutes to explore Japunda before we can expect Mama Lupe!


[Bobby] Okay, Flat Dad, let’s show Real Dad the greatest trip he’s never been on!

Flat Dad, you’re hogging the light.

Bobby, do you need some help?

I can’t even take a picture.

Allow me.

[purse whirring]

There we go! Now watch the birdie and say cheese.


[camera clicks]

It’s… beautiful.

Teach me, Master Carlota.

Show me the ways of the selfie.


But it won’t be easy.

[Bobby as Arturo] I’m not afraid!

You will be.

[eerie music plays]


No way!

Twelve is Midnight? I like your taste in music, Japunda.

[ominous music playing]

[Ronnie Anne] Huh?



Ah, I see you found my most precious piece and a real bargain at 20…

[sputters] 30 American dollars?

[Maria] Hmm.

A little pricey for a piece of obsidian, don’t you think?

Well, legend says that very piece of obsidian was the haunting lost connection between the gods and all of mankind.

[in unison] You said that about my necklace!

Ah! Okay, 25 American dollars.

I still want it.

Ronnie Anne, no.

You’re not spending your money on this hunk of junk.

Yeah, but I think it’s…

Listen to your mother.

Now come on! Mama Lupe will be here in 24 seconds!

[squealing and laughing]

¡Híjole qué madre!

“Listen to your mother.” Pfft. [sighs]

She never listens to me.

Huh? What’s this?

There’s money in there.

Uh, how do I open it?


[air horn blows]

¡Mi familia! ¡Mi familia!

Right on time.

[Casagrandes] Mama Lupe!

Ronnie Anne! Mama Lupe is here!

[Mama Lupe] Come and give me a big hug.

[Casagrandes] Aww.

Oh, I can’t wait to see the hacienda again!

It’s been so long.

How far is it?

It’s just across the lake.

How are we gonna get there?

We are taking my boat.

[Casagrandes cheer]

[boat horn honks]

[Casagrandes groan]

Hop in!

[upbeat music playing]

[flute music plays]


[Lalo panting]

[groans] Lalo!

Can you maybe… [retches]

slow down?

No slowing down.

Don Tacho is the manager of my hacienda. He’s great!

Just don’t look him in the eye.

[Don Tacho] You fall in, you swim.

[Maria] There it is.

[triumphant music playing]

[Lalo panting]



Just making room for snacks. [retches]


[boys] Whoa! [laughing]

[inspirational music playing]


Hold on, I think you closed your eyes, Flat Dad.

[boys laughing]

Everything is just as I remember it.

Swimming off the dock, climbing that old plane, running through the corn.

No swimming, no climbing, no corn.

[tsks] No pasa nada. He’s too strict.

[Sergio squawks]

Hey, hey! Paco! Paulina!

What’s up, primo? I want you to meet the familia.



[wings fluttering]

Whoa, you guys have been biz-zay!

Oh, no, they’re adopted.

[exhales] Look at this view. I can’t wait to just relax, and paint sunrises and sunsets and all manners of sun.

Check it out. Almost looks like a half pipe.

That’s Mount Punguari, named after the doomed demigod of P’urhépecha legend.

The history of this time is a little sketchy because most…

Fast forward, honey.

Oh, right.

Punguari was obsessed with becoming a full god, but her parents forbade it.

She snuck away and performed the ritual herself.

Then she lost control of the magic and caused the earth to crack open.


Whoa exactly!

But at the last minute, Punguari’s mother, Sisiki, was able to close the earth by turning her daughter into that mountain!


But fair.

It is said if Punguari escapes the mountain and transforms herself into a full god, an evil, cursed death will rain down upon this valley.


Who wants supper?

[Casagrandes] Yes!


[groans] My sweater.

[Paco] Sorry.

They are still potty training.


[upbeat music playing]

This house is huge.


Ooh, Carl, look.

Muchachos, supper is ready.

Mama Lupe, are those your Fire Ball sticks?

¡Si! ¡Uarhukua ch’anakua!

I loved Fire Ball!

An ancient sport of the gods that represents the rising and setting of the sun.

Look! I have a story for every burn mark.

[both groaning]

But if you love Fire Ball so much, why’d you stop playing?

Hmm. Eh, my team broke up.

[sinister music playing]

[Mama Lupe] Bunch of quitters!

[bell tolls]

Mama Lupe, you’ve gotta teach us how to play!

I don’t know. My Fire Ball days are behind me…

[both] Please, please, please, please, please, please, please.


[triumphant music playing]

Let’s do this.

[light music playing]

[phone dialing]

Hey, Ronnie Anne!

Sid! I’m so glad to…

[gasps] Are you at Xtreme Eddie’s?

Pshh, no.

Ah! [grunting] My spleen.

The Spleen Splitter.

I’m sorry, Ronnie Anne, I just had to.

The pull of Xtreme Eddie’s is just too great!

I get it. I just wish I was there with you.

Me too. Wait, maybe you can be! Let’s do a VideoChat skate tomorrow.

Me at Extreme Eddie’s and you at some extreme place there.

Sid, that’s genius.

And I know just the spot.

[ethereal music playing]

[rooster crows]

Buenos días, sleepyhead!


[groans] Mom, can I please have five more minutes?

[laughs] No. We have a packed day so ándale!

Tía Frida is painting, the boys are playing Fire Ball, and everyone else is already out back for mask making!

[rock music playing]

[tense music playing]

This is fire.

This is ball.

This is Fire Ball.

Now show me what you’ve got!

[both] Yeah!

[deep exhale]

[Carl and CJ] Ah!

[boys laughing]

[boys yell]

[Frida grunts]

[boys yell]

[boys yell]

[boys yelling]

[boys yell]


Can’t you see I’m relaxing?


[pinball machine noises]

[Paco squawks] We got ourselves a ringer!

[Hector grunts]

When you said we were making masks, I was thinking more “spa” and less “Halloween.”

They’re to wear during the Danza de los Viejitos.

My favorite part of The Festival of the New Fire!

Don Tacho!


[Rosa] Can you please demonstrate?


[Don Tacho mumbling]

[mariachi music playing]

The old man’s got moves!


Where’s Ronnie Anne? She should be here by now.

[adventurous music playing]

[bird screeching in distance]

[phone ringing]

Hey, Sid!

Ronnie Anne! Check out this ramp!

They say it’s made of nightmares and children’s screams.

I’m living my best life.

Wait ’til you see where I’m skating.

[rock music playing]

[Sid] Whoa, now that’s extreme!

Time to make synchro-skating history.

[in unison] Summer of 12!

[dramatic music playing]

[necklace twinkles]


[grunts, groans]

[gem twinkles]

[ominous music playing]


Are you okay?

That hurt so much.

[both laughing]

Whoa, what happened to my necklace?

[female voice] My gem…

[gasps] Did you hear that?

[Sid] Hear what? What’s happening?

[earth rumbling]

It feels like an earthquake!

[dramatic music playing]

It is an earthquake! Gotta call you back, I’m running for my life!





I must’ve hit my head on that gnarly fall. I think I’m seeing things.

[female voice in distance] Help! Help me!

[gasps] Hold on, I’m coming!


Help! I’m stuck!

[grunts] Are you okay?

I was up here hiking when the ground began to shake, and this tree fell on my leg.

And then this crazy moth face came out of nowhere!

[grunts, gasps] You saw that, too?

Wait, earthquake, moths…

Have you heard of the legend of…

Poopoo-jari, the doomed demigod that got trapped in the mountains?

It’s Punguari.

Right, chihuahua! I think I just helped her escape!

We have to warn everyone. Come on!

I’m right behind you.

[sinister music playing]

Mom! Mom! You won’t believe what just happened!

[evil music playing]



[music stops]

Exactly the reaction we wanted.

Excelente, mis viejitos. We will work on our dance later.

[Casagrandes laugh]

[Bobby] So good.


Mom, wait!

You’re not going to believe this. The craziest thing just happened to us.

Oh, this is, um, uh…

Oh, I guess we ran outta there so fast I didn’t catch your name.

Oh, yeah. My regular human name.

Uh, I mean… my name is…

Sha… Ra?

I’m Ronnie Anne.

Nice to meet you, Shara.

Ronnie Anne, can I talk to you over here for a minute?

Mom, listen, it was the freakiest thing. There was an earthquake on the mountain and a million moths flew out of the ground and into the sky.


I think what you saw is your guilty conscience flying over you and away from you because it’s so guilty!

Look, I know I shouldn’t have left, but I had these plans with Sid.

That doesn’t matter now because we need to figure out what that was…

Well, it matters to me.

This was supposed to be our summer together.

No, it was supposed to be my Summer of 12.

I told you that, but you never listen.

Even now, I tell you I was swarmed by creepy bugs, and you’re focused on this other thing.

Bailing on family events isn’t responsible behavior.

When you start acting like a 12-year-old, then we can talk.


Did you tell her what we saw?

[sighs] I tried, but she wouldn’t listen.

At least she didn’t turn you into a mountain.

What was that?

Uh, I said I totally get how you feel.

Your mom might not listen, but I will.

[Carlitos laughing]


[gasps] My uncle! He knows all about this stuff.

[Carlitos cooing]

Tío Carlos!

Something weird’s going on! Earthquakes! Moths!

I think I may have released Punguari!

Oh, don’t fall for superstitions, Ronnie Anne.

Our ancestors used to use myths like that to explain natural phenomenon like earthquakes and moths.

It’s all in this book.

You have another copy?

No, I had it pulled from the lake.


[dolphin noises]

Look, it’s all in here. Gods, demigods, even magical masks.


are cool.

Uh, do you think Punguari is looking for a mask or something?

Well, the Punguari legend says in order for her to become a full god, she needs the Mask of Many Faces.

Right here.

The Mask of Many Faces.

We’d better get it before she does, right?

Good point.

Tío Carlos, where do you think one would find such a mask?

Oh, I would personally recommend the local Japunda Museum or maybe the…

[girls zoom off]

[Carlitos babbles]

[adventurous music playing]

[peaceful music playing]

Nice work, Maria, but for your next corunda can you shape it more triangle and less… blob?

[sad trumpet noise]


Someone needs to let off some steam.

It was supposed to be our summer together. [gasps]


[grunts] Let go of your troubles, mija.

Clear eyes… full chancla… can’t lose.

¡Buen tiro!

[deep inhale]



Ronnie Anne was supposed to be here with us learning how to make corundas.

But of course, another no-show!

I brought her here so we could spend time together, and all she wants to do is her own thing.



[cat screeches]

I seem to remember a little girl who did her “own thing” and skipped school without my permission.

The carnival was only in town for one day. What was I supposed to do?

[chuckles] I guess it runs in the family.

[gasps] Me?

Who ran away to live in the barn because I wouldn’t let the donkey stay in her room?

It’s in our blood.

Centuries ago, before the Spanish came, this area was ruled by a tribe of fierce women who worshipped the goddess Sisiki.

The Chancla Warriors.

What you call “stubbornness”, I call strength.

This family has four generations of Chancla Warriors.

Ronnie Anne is just testing her wings.

Give her some space to fly.

Clear eyes, full chancla,

can’t lose!

[bottle shatters]

[Maria and Rosa] Yes!

[people chattering]

[museum tour guide] And it all happened over 400 years ago.

Which means you are standing in the oldest building in this part of Mexico.

[tourists exclaim]

If anyone knows where the Mask of Many Faces is, it’s museum people.

Today, the Museo de Japunda houses the largest collection of P’urhépecha artifacts in the world.

The P’urhépecha people built a sanctuary to protect their most valued cultural artifacts from invaders.

And legend suggests that it’s hidden somewhere beneath this very building.

Cool stuff is always hidden in the basement.

We gotta get downstairs.

Now, if you’ll follow me to the gift shop, there’s some interesting…

[eerie music playing]

How ’bout we start there?


You first.

[eerie music continues]

[phone dings]

[Ronnie Anne groans]

[phone beeps]

Everything okay?

Yeah, just my mom wanting to talk.

She’s probably mad I skipped out on her dumb itinerary.

Moms don’t get it. They think we’re just these little girls.

Exactly! It’s like, I’m 12 now. My opinions matter.

What I want matters!

I’m old enough to go to a skatepark if I want to!

I’m old enough to do an eclipse if I want!

I’m old enough to be in control of myself, my summer, and my…

[in unison] life!

Wait, did you say eclipse?

Uh, it’s a figure of speech.

The point is, we’re awesome, independent, powerful preteens.

Our moms have no idea what we’re capable of.

Exactly, it’s times like these I need “Ronnie Anne time.”

Ronnie Anne time?

Yeah. Whenever I need a break from my mom, I go to my room, put on my headphones, crank up Twelve is Midnight, the greatest band ever, and just…

[phone beeping]



Oh, man.

[gem twinkling]

[ominous music playing]

Shara. What is happening?


[groans] Jeez, necklace, calm down!


[ominous music intensifies]

[Shara gasps] That’s it, the Mask of Many Faces!

[Ronnie Anne] Look! The gem in the mask is the same as my necklace!

Mind… blown.

[groans] I think it wants me to move the tapestry.

[electricity whirring]

[gasps] Whoa.


How are we feeling about going through this door that didn’t exist a few seconds ago?

Do it.

I’m right behind you.

[ominous music continues]

[ominous music stops]

[ethereal music playing]

[gasps] That’s it.

I can’t believe we found it.

What do we do now, just take it?

I think you need to put your gemstone in the mask, like we saw in the tapestry.


[gem whooshes]

[Ronnie Anne] Awesome.

Now I can fix this mess I made, and we can stop Punguari.

We did it, Shara.

[grunts] Ah! What the what?

[laughs menacingly]

Thanks, Ronnie Anne.


You’ve been a big help.

[electricity buzzing]

[dramatic music playing]

Finally! After all these centuries, I’m me again.


[chuckles] Surprise.

Wait, you were Shara this whole time?

I took the form of someone you’d trust so you’d do what I needed.

When you released me from the mountain… thanks for that, by the way. [chuckles]

I was just a spirit.

I needed a human to get me to this room to reclaim my true form.

So you lied to me.

Eh, some people sneak out to go skateboarding, others trick a human into helping them find an ancient magic mask.

I did what I had to do.

Just like you.

If it makes you feel any better, you are pretty cool for a human.

Well, time’s a wastin’! This goddess-to-be has a ceremony to finish!

Wait, no!

[dramatic music playing]

[Ronnie Anne panting]



[peaceful music playing]



Sorry, Abuelo,

just need to grab a bandage.


Are you hurt, Roberto?

Oh, it’s not for me.

[Bobby as Arturo] All these selfies are killing me!

[normal voice] Hey, take it easy, Flat Dad.

Here, have a rest inside the comfort of my flannel.

[Bobby muffled, as Arturo] Help me.

Dad, have you seen Ronnie Anne?

I’m trying this whole “give Ronnie Anne space” thing, but now she has me really worried and isn’t responding to my ten texts.

No, I’m sorry, mija. Maybe she’s out with her new friend.

Oh. Where could she be?


Can anyone hear me?

I’m trapped in a secret underground room!

That no one knows exists because it’s a secret.

It’s no use.

I’m never getting out of here.

I should’ve listened to Mom and done family stuff like she wanted.


[distant humming]

Uh… hello?

[humming echoing]

Is someone there?

I can hear you humming.




[muffled gasp]


[echoing] Ronnie Anne?

[both screaming]

[Rosa] Where are you?

[Carlos] How’d you get in there?

Are you okay?

Is it cold?

[Carl] Ronnie Anne, are you dead?

Are you a ghost?


Okay, I need to tell you guys something, but it’s gonna sound a little crazy, but here it goes.

[deep inhale]

That necklace I bought had a magic gem which accidentally woke up Punguari, who was here, but not really, ’cause she was a ghost and still needed the Mask of Many Faces to get her body back, so she pretended to be that girl Shara, and we found the mask together, and then she trapped me in a secret room under the museum where for some reason there’s a magic mirror that goes to Mama Lupe’s bathroom.

[Casagrandes gasp]

[laughs] I told you that mirror was magic. Pay up!

[Paco grumbling]

It’s okay, Ronnie Anne. Just tell us where you are.

Don Tacho, get the boat ready!

No boat. We’ll take the plane!

[turbines whirring]

[Casagrandes groaning]

[door locks]

[card reader beeps]

[door latch clicks]

[suspenseful music playing]

Are you sure this is going to work?

I’m sure.

[feet tapping]




[laughs] You scared me. The museum’s closed, though.

I’ll have to ask you viejitos to leave.

Whoa! What’s going on?

Hey! This is kind of fun!

You guys sure can dance! [laughs]



[loud crashing]

[door latch clicks]

[guard] Aw.

I thought we were having fun.

[dramatic music playing]

[card reader beeps]

There’s the tapestry, like Ronnie Anne said!

Ronnie Anne!

[Ronnie Anne] Mom! I’m in here.

There’s no door.

I know! Punguari made it disappear.

Just hold tight. We need something to smash the wall.

[sighs] These won’t work. Are you guys finding anything?



[Maria] Any luck, Ronnie Anne?

I think I found a spoon. Maybe I can eat my way out.

Don’t joke about food at a time like this!

[Maria] It’s on wheels!

We can wheel it at the wall!

Or maybe it’s filled with an ancient magic that will destroy the wall on impact.

Uh, sure, Mama Lupe.

[ethereal music playing]

What’s this?

[Mama Lupe] On three!

¡Uno, dos, tres!

[all yell]

[all yelling]

[loud crash]

What the heck just happened?

[gasping] [in unison] It was filled with an ancient magic

that destroyed the wall on impact!


I’m so glad you’re safe.

See, this is what happens when you go sneaking off.

Are you serious right now? Oops.

My bad.

Whoa, what’s this?

[dramatic music playing]

It’s the story of Punguari.

She steals the mask, then cracks open the Earth

so she can bring fire and destruction upon the valley.

[Ronnie Anne] Wait a second.

She doesn’t look like she’s doing any of that fire and destruction stuff.

And who’s that guy?

[Mama Lupe gasps]


The god of the underworld? Do you mean…

The legend is wrong!

Punguari’s not the bad guy, Ucumu is!

[earth rumbling]

[all yelling]

[all] Punguari!

We gotta go!

[echoing] This time I will not be stopped!

I, Punguari, demigoddess of the moon, summon the power of the mask!

[wind howling]

[thunder rumbling]

Mask of Many Faces, I beseech you!

Give me your magic, make me a god!

[thunder rumbles]

[dramatic music playing]


Oh, excuse me, goddess.

Would you like your own temple?

[scoffs] Why, yes!

And I know just where to start.

[electricity buzzing]


[dramatic music intensifies]

[earth rumbling]

[villagers screaming]

Oh, no! We’re too late.

[wind howling]


Let’s shine a little light on this situation.

[winds whooshing]

[funky music playing]

[laughing echoes]

This is terrible!

Punguari is going to release Ucumu!

What’s Ucumu?

This guy.

[Carlota] Ew. Swipe… left.

[pop music blares]

[Casagrandes groan]

She’s torturing souls!

No, that’s a demon hound!

That’s Twelve Is Midnight!

She just wants to party. She doesn’t want to hurt anyone.

[Casagrandes] What?

There’s a bunch of flopping fish down there who would beg to differ.

Trust me, I get her.

But she opened the door for Ucumu.

On accident!

It’s like she snuck off to go skateboarding

and accidentally released a demigod.

It happens to the best of us.

[tense music playing]

[earth rumbling]

[Mama Lupe gasps] Oh, no!

I have to go tell Punguari so she’ll stop.

No. No way. What if you’re wrong?

I’m right. I can get through to her. I know I can.

She’s a god, Ronnie Anne. You’re just a little kid.

No, I’m not!

Ronnie Anne!

Ronnie Anne, look out!


[Casagrandes gasp]

♪ I’m over the moon ♪

[owl hooting]

[triumphant music playing]



[wings flapping]


We owe you one for the poopy sweater.

[gasps] Dad, I’m borrowing the van!

Mija, it’s too dangerous!

[seat belt fastens]

[engine starts]

[tires screeching]

[rock music playing]

Don’t forget where you park!

Whoa… [gasps]

[Maria screaming]

[Maria grunts]

[engine starts]

Ronnie Anne is gonna pull this off, right?

Probably not.


What? Someone had to say it.

[dramatic music playing]

[record scratching]

Party people, what’s up?

[electronic music playing]

[Punguari mimics airhorn sounds]

[wind blowing]

[music stops]


[Punguari mimics sad airhorn noises]

[wings flapping in distance]


[triumphant music playing]

[Paco] Good luck.

[Sergio] You’re going to need it!

Ronnie Anne?

You got out!

Just in time for my goddess party.

Punguari, you have to stop!

If you don’t, you’ll let out Ucumu!

God of the underworld?

That’s ridiculous.

It’s true! I have proof.

You did it before because you weren’t ready.

Not ready? I’m a god now, Ronnie Anne.

You’re starting to sound like my mom.

And this is a no-mom zone.

Punguari, your mom loved you.

She wasn’t trying to stop you as punishment.

Oh, really? She turned me into a mountain…

She literally grounded me.

To protect you!

We found this in that secret room where you casually imprisoned me…

not cool, BTdubs.

This is the truth of what happened to you 800 years ago.


It’s my parents…

It can’t be…

Stop telling me what to do!

[earth rumbling]

[Chipiri grunting]


My daughter, please…



[water rushing]

What’s happening?

No! Mom!

I’m sorry. I love you.

[Ucumu roars]


My daughter…

[Chipiri grunts]

[dramatic music playing]

[gasps] The villagers!

[girl screams]

[Sisiki] Hold him back!

I’ll protect the people! [grunts]

[Sisiki yells]

[Chipiri grunting]

He’s too powerful.

We can take him down together.

[dramatic music intensifies]

[both yell]

For Punguari!

[Sisiki shrieks]

[Punguari crying]

Your parents sacrificed themselves to save everyone.

But you didn’t know that would happen.

It’s not your fault.

She saved me from Ucumu.

This whole time, I thought…

Yeah, I guess that’s what moms do.

I know my mom would do…

[Maria] Ronnie Anne!

[gasps] Mom!

[dramatic music playing]

[earth rumbling]


[grunts, screams]



We have to help her! But how?

[Punguari] With me.

Goddess of the moon?

[mask shimmers]

We can save her. Together.


Now, hang on.

[Ronnie Anne yells]

[dramatic music playing]

[light beams lasering]

[trumpet music plays]





[Maria screaming]

[slow-motion] Mom!

[slow-motion] Ronnie Anne!

[slow-motion] Mom!

[dramatic music intensifies]

[itinerary twinkles]



Hang on, Mom!


Oh, my gosh, that was amazing.

But so dangerous.

You saved me.

Don’t ever do it again.

Oh, I love you.

[Maria laughing]


[both grunt]

[Rosa] Maria! Ronnie Anne!

Oh, thank goodness you’re okay!

[Casagrandes cheer]

[Frida] Good thing you laminated the itinerary.

[Bobby] I have the coolest sister ever!

[Lalo barks]

Aww, thanks Lalo.

Hey, quick question.

What’s with the giant dog?


And that’s Punguari, she’s cool now.

Hey, I’ve always been cool.

[thunder rumbling]

Uh, not to be a downer,

but we still have a god-of-the-underworld problem.

[intense music playing]

[earth crumbling]

[thunder cracking]


[Lalo whimpers]

Okay, everybody, don’t freak out. Bad news: Ucumu is coming.

Good news: I think I know how to stop him, but I can’t do it alone.

But how?

According to this scroll, when Ucumu got out before,

Punguari’s parents defeated him with a giant flaming chancla.

Hey, that’s my dad’s sacred flame! He kept it in his temple!

[scoffs] But who knows where his temple is now…

[CJ] I do.

Right there!

I told you the house was on top of an ancient temple!

Now pay up!

Awesome! Now we just need a giant chancla.

Wait, I think I know where it is! It’s in front of the museum!

[Casagrandes cheer]

[earth rumbles]

[dramatic music playing]

[yells, grunts]


[Ucumu roars]


[deep inhale]

[smoke whooshing]

[Casagrandes screaming]

I said don’t freak out. I need your help.

Mama Lupe, Abuela, and Mom, you guys go find the chancla!

Everyone else, get on the plane with Don Tacho,

and go to the hacienda to get the sacred flame!

Punguari and I will hold Ucumu back until you get there.

Ronnie Anne, I…

I know what you’re gonna say, Mom.

He’s a million feet tall. He’s on fire. It’s too dangerous. I…

No, I think it’s a good plan.

And I’m going to need Lalo.

[Lalo panting]

Thanks, Mom.

Listen up, everyone. We can do this.

Casagrandes on three!

[Casagrandes] One, two, three…


[dramatic music playing]

You’re going to need this.

Just point and shoot.

[Maria] Ronnie Anne!

Good luck!

But be careful!

You too, Mom.

¡Al attacke!

[motor whirring]

[Casagrandes screaming]


[Casagrandes] Ah!

[Punguari Coyote howls]

[Casagrandes scream]


[villagers screaming]

This is the weapon that will defeat Ucumu!

If I’m right, this is the tip of a very, very large chancla!

[statue twinkles]

[Maria] Lalo, dig!

[Lalo panting]

If we don’t make it, you’re a good friend, Punguari,

and your fur is very soft.

Thanks. Now let’s kick some magma butt!


[intense music playing]

[Ucumu roars]

[Don Tacho mumbling] Huh!





[Casagrandes] Ew.

[Carl] Cool.

[Frida] Ay, his eye.

[chimney whirring]

[Casagrandes yell]




[Don Tacho] Tangaxuan!

[ethereal music playing]

[Don Tacho] La llama sagrada.

Did anyone bring a ladder?

[women] Go Lalo go! Go Lalo go! Go Lalo go!

[lava whooshing]

[Punguari Owl screeches]



Okay, who has the candle?

I don’t have the candle.

[scoffs] I thought you had the candle!

I brought the snacks! I don’t get credit for that!

Okay, I’ll figure something out.


It’s okay, Bobby. I’ve lived a good flat life.


Ah! It burns!

JK, it’s magic fire!


[Casagrandes cheer]

[Don Tacho] Uh-oh.

[grunt] Ow!

[triumphant music plays]

[Lalo panting]


Good boy!

Now we just need some rope!


Hang in there, Ronnie Anne.

[dramatic music playing]

[Punguari Owl screeches]



[both yell]

[in unison] Punguari!


[Punguari Coyote whimpers]


[gasps] Punguari!

Are you okay?

My parents, they’re alive!

[Ucumu roars]

They’re trapped in those jewels! I have to save them.

[Bobby] Ronnie Anne!

[plane motor whirring]

We got the sacred fire!

I just flat-pooped myself!

[techno music playing]


[Casagrandes scream]


Bobby! Get the flame to Mom!

[Casagrandes scream]

It’s working.

[lava whooshing]

[villagers screaming]

[woman scream]


[Paco squawks]

[chuckles] Yes!

[triumphant music playing]


[lava minions roar]

[Casagrandes yell]

[loud crash]

[women gasp]

[Casagrandes murmuring]

We got the sacred flame!

[Casagrandes cheer]

Great, bring it over here!

[Bobby] Uh…

How am I supposed to get it to you?

[Paco squawks] With us! We can fly it over!

We’re birds! Duh!


[Carlota gasps]

[Casagrandes scream]

Protect the flame!

[Carlos] Hurry, everyone in here!

Hey monstros!


Read it and weep!


Come and get a taste of this!


[minions grunt]

[minions roar]

Hey lava jerks!

Watch the birdie!

[camera clicks]

[Ronnie Anne yells]

[dramatic music playing]




Channel your inner Chancla Warrior.

And lift!

[women straining]

Bobby! Get ready to launch the flame!


[CJ and Carl gasp] Fire Ball!

[Punguari Coyote] Help! Ronnie Anne!



Hold on, Punguari!

I got you!


Chancla Warriors!

Lend us your strength!

[women] Come on, let’s go!


Oh, gracias!

[Chancla Warriors grunting]

[grunts] Bobby, we need the flame!

We’ve been waiting for this the whole movie!

Are we sure about this?


[CJ grunts]


[Chancla Warriors yell]

[Ronnie Anne straining]



[Ronnie Anne grunts]


[muffled scream]








[dramatic music playing]

Wait here, Mom and Dad.

No one messes with my Summer of 12!



[electricity whooshing]


[slide whistle noises]

[Ucuma yells]

[both cheer]

[lava minion grumbling]

[all gasp]

[birds groan]

[sniffs] I smell chicken.

[villagers cheering]

[somber music playing]

There’s so much destruction.

And it’s all my fault.

[earth rumbling]

We better make sure he can’t come back.

I know what to do.

Hand me the staff.

Your temple? But it’s everything you’ve ever wanted.

It was.

[electricity whirring]


[inspirational music playing]


[gemstones radiating]

[Sisiki] Daughter?

[gasps] Mom! Dad!


[all laugh]

Mom, I was so wrong.

This whole time I thought you turned me into a mountain to punish me,

but you were saving me.

And now you saved us.

My daughter, the demigoddess of butt-whooping!

[chuckles] I couldn’t have done it without my new friend, Ronnie Anne!

[Casagrandes yelling]

[Casagrandes grunting]

And her whole family: the Casagrandes.

[Casagrandes] Hi!

[grunts] Ronnie Anne! [pants]


Mom, this was all my fault.

None of this would’ve happened

if I hadn’t been such a 12-year-old pain in the butt and just listened to you.

No, we should have listened to each other.

I got too wrapped up in my perfect summer and perfect itinerary.

I guess I sort of overdid it.

You were right, Mother.

I wasn’t ready to be a full god. I see that now.

But if all I do is say no, how will you ever become ready?

I should have cared more about this trip and what it meant to you.

But I was only thinking about myself.

I was too.

I wanted to spend time with my little girl,

but I guess she’s not so little anymore.

She’s an amazing young woman,

who sometimes needs her space.

This whole time, I was only thinking about what I wanted.

Sacrificing your temple to save others shows tremendous growth.

I’m so proud of you.

I know I hold you too close sometimes.

It’s what moms do.

But we’re also supposed to help you grow.

And ultimately…

[in unison] Let you go.

When you’re 30.


[all laugh]

Can you sign my chancla?

We’re huge fans.

[Casagrandes] Cheese!

[Bobby as Arturo] I’m back, baby!

[camera clicks]

[normal voice] Perfect.

Well, I guess you gotta go back to wherever gods live.

If you ever want to hang and listen to Twelve is Midnight, I’m around.

Oh, I’m not going anywhere.

Eh, sure, I’m probably grounded for a thousand years,

but I’m not gonna miss the Festival of the New Fire!


Mom, Dad, let’s clean this place up.

We’re on it.

[mariachi music playing]

[laughs] Jackpot!

[scepter buzzes]


[back cracks]

I’m a little rusty.

Hope I don’t set everything on fire.

[Casagrandes] What?

Just kidding. [laughs]

[all laughing]

[Carl groans]

[electricity buzzing]

[joyful music playing]

[conch blowing]

[Ronnie Anne] And then Sisiki restored the lake and now that we know the temple is here, we’re having the Festival of New Fire at the hacienda!

And over there… that’s the giant bonfire for Chipiri!

Whoa, the heat from that thing would seriously melt your face off.

You are having an epic Summer of 12.

Yeah, it’s actually turned out pretty great.

But tell me all about Xtreme Eddie’s.

To tell you the truth, Eddie isn’t so extreme anymore.

Once you’ve almost fractured your skull a few times, it loses all sense of adventure.

Ooh, sorry, Sid, gotta go. Mom and I are gonna check out more of the festival.

Okay, bye. Don’t release another demigod! [chuckles]

[phone beeps]

I got you a little something.

Whoa, I love it.

The vendor gave me his word. There’s nothing crazy hidden inside.

I didn’t say it before, but thanks for bringing me here.

[whistle blows]

[players clamoring and laughing]

[Carlitos babbling]

Yeah! Yeah!

[phone camera clicks]

[squawks] Anyone got a light?


[crowd cheering, exclaiming]

[festive music playing]

[Ronnie Anne] Awesome!
