(On the steps of the Mysterious Tower, a duck and a dog sit, waiting)
Goofy: Gawrsh, the King must be pretty far away by now...
(A shooting beam of light strikes the ground with a loud boom, sending the two shrieking. They get their bearing and stare into the light, gasping)
Donald: King Mickey!
(Ven and his friends lays on the ground, holding the Star Shard as the light dies down)
Goofy: Nope, doesn't look like him.
(Goofy sighs but shakes it off)
Goofy: Look! That feller's got the Star Shard the King borrowed!
Ventus: King? Oh, you must be talking about Mickey.
(They stands up)
Ventus: We saw him--
(They run over and start pushing them toward the door of the tower)
Ventus: Wha--Huh? Hey, take it easy!
Spyro: What are you doing?
Donald: Are we glad to see you!
(They enter the Tower and meet before Yen Sid)
Goofy (standing at attention): Yen Sid, sir! We just got a clue as to where the King might be!
(Ven and his friends looks at both of them)
Yen Sid: Ah, Ventus. Spyro. Pop Fizz.
Ventus & Spyro (surprised): Huh?
Optimus: Eraqus has told Yen Sid much about you. If I am not mistaken, you were ordered to return home.
Ventus: Well, sir, me and Spyro...
Optimus: No matter. Mickey has difficulty following directions, too.
(Ven and Spyro chuckles)
Yen Sid: Where is this clue to Mickey's whereabouts?
Donald: I've got it!
(He places the Star Shard on Yen Sid's desk)
Goofy: This feller Venquist--uh, Ventilate...uh, Veggie--
Donald (angrily): Just call him Ven!
Ventus: Sure. That's what I usually go by.
Pop Fizz: And that's his Short name.
Donald: Ven had it when he got here.
Yen Sid: Please, explain.
Ventus: We ran into Mickey. But we got sent flying into the light--we don't know where he went.
(Donald and Goofy sigh)
Ventus: He wasn't in the same world as the one where we found that.
Yen Sid (running fingers through his beard): As I thought...Mickey has been hurling himself from one world to the next. That explains why I could not discern his location.
Donald: You can now, can't you?
Yen Sid: Yes. I can.
(He waves his arms and concentrates, creating a cloud of dust on his desk. The swirl clears and the group sees Mickey lying on the ground, struggling to move. Donald and Goofy jump up, yelling)
Ventus, Spyro & Pop Fizz: Mickey!
Donald, Zig, Bumblebee & Goofy: The King!
(The image fades and the cloud vanishes)
Donald: What happened? Where'd he go? Is he okay?
Yen Sid: There is a dark and powerful force that is interfering with my magic.
Goofy: Just tell us where the King is, Mr. Yen Sid, sir, and me, Bumblebee, Zig and Donald will go right there and save him!
Yen Sid: You four? That may not be adequate.
Goofy: But I'm the captain of the King's royal knights!
(He summons his shield)
Donald: And I'm his magician!
(He summons his staff and Yen Sid struggles with his words)
Ventus: Me and my friend will find him. We recognize the place we saw.
Donald: If you go, we'll go with you!
Spyro: No, we owe him. Mickey saved me once. And we can't risk putting his friends in danger.
(They sigh again)
Ventus: Don't worry. I swear we'll bring him back safe.
Yen Sid: Very well, Ventus. We will leave it to you and your friends.
