FernGully 2: The Magical Rescue is the direct-to-video sequel to the feature film FernGully: The Last Rainforest. This film when out on March 17, 1998, but it was released on DVD on May 2, 2000.


Crysta is taking care of three baby animals and demonstrating greater control over nature. She and Pips begin a small contest over who can grow the more impressive plant, while Pips expresses a desire to see more of the outside world. While planting a seed, Usagi finds a chest containing the Mirror of Incanta, a magic mirror had the power to grant three wishes. It came from Never Land and is similar to the Moonstone.

Suddenly, Batty Koda arrives in a panic, warning that human poachers are right behind him. These poachers show up with their dogs and capture the three baby animals. The first rescue attempt while still in FernGully fails, and results in a huge forest fire, destroying a huge part of the forest and scarring Mother Kangaroo. The Sailor Senshi, Pips and the Beetle Boys volunteer to follow the humans to town and rescue the babies, convincing the reluctant Batty to be their guide. They arrive at a town amusement park. They are so fascinated by the rides, they are reminded by Batty to resume their mission.

All this time, the fairies have been healing the rainforest and Crysta finds and helps one of the poachers' dogs (she called him Boof) abandoned and caught in a trap. She takes him on a journey to the town. Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, Minako, Pips and the Beetle Boys meet a girl named Budgie, who is hard at practicing for the clown act. Pips flies over to her and introduces himself and his friends. Shocked by the insects, Budgie tries to swat them away, accidentally slapping Rei across the face and hitting Pips in the process. He flies into a pole and Budgie runs over asking if she's hurt him. Pips denies being hurt, but after seeing Pips weak from the journey and can barely stand, gives them shelter in her trailer. Batty has located the poachers' place, but the others ignore him too fascinated by modern human utilities. Bark and Batty go to make a rescue attempt, but Batty is caught.

Budgie tells Pips that she has been working on her clown act for years, but she has never been all that good. Pips tells her that she is trying too hard, and she should just do it. Minako shows Usagi and Budgie an arcade at the fair, where Ami is playing a sword-fighting in The Legend of Zelda. Makoto is playing a 3DS flight simulator of Star Fox and gets easily frustrated at losing after viewing a Slippy version of the game over. Rei uses her psychic powers to play Buzz Lightyear even better. The poachers spot Luna and Artemis had located their hideout where the babies are and capture them, place them in a sack and a cage. Back at where the babies are, the animals are very scared and fear they will never get back home. Batty overcomes his terror of the situation and manages to reassure them. Then the poachers take all the cages and load them onto a big truck. At the fair, Budgie goes to a contest stand and wins a stuffed kangaroo, which reminds Ami and Pips of the babies he's supposed to be saving along with the Sailor Senshi. He tells Budgie about them and she offers to help him out. Minako reveals Budgie her secret identity by transforming into Sailor Venus.

They all reach the old warehouse. The poachers drive off, and Budgie jumps off a ledge and lands on the truck. They drive past Budgie's grandfather, and he sees that Budgie is hanging on the truck tarp, and he drives after them. Budgie manages to get inside the car and frees all the birds in the cages. The poachers see Budgie trying to get in the car and are enraged seeing all the birds flying away. One of them climbs out of the truck and tries to get Budgie off. She manages to get away from him, but he unlatches the car she's on and sends her rolling backwards on the road. She ends up with one side of the car dangling off a cliff. When she falls, Batty catches her and manages to lift her all by himself up to the top of the cliff (in spite of her being double his size) allowing Budgie's grandfather to catch them in his net and bring them safely to solid ground.

The group then head by clown car, alongside with the Sailor Scouts, to the ship where the animals are being loaded. Pips undoes the conveyor catch so that the catches land in Budgie's grandfather's car. A struggle for the cages ensues between the poachers and Budgie. Boof and Crysta arrive to help. The other dog turns against his former master while Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus rescue Luna and Artemis. The boat gets away and the fairies use their magic to stop it growing a gigantic tree, where the poachers were heard from no more until at the end. Nugget almost drowns as he escapes.

The Sailor Senshi travel to the Earth's core to get The Spells of Astoroth for Yen Sid. The Sailor Senshi, ordered by Yen Sid to claim The Star of Astoroth, travel to The Isle of Naboombu on Mobius. Initially landing in a nearby lagoon, where they go underneath The Beautiful Briny Sea, where Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask win a dance contest at an underwater night club, until Sailor Jupiter is caught by a bear who is fishing in the lagoon. He reveals that no people on Mobius and Earth are meant to be on the island by order of King Leonidas. He leads the Sailor Scouts to meet him, who's a lion. He is upset because nobody has volunteered to referee a royal soccer match. Sailor Moon convinces him she can do so, and Sailor Mercury and Sailor Mars observe the Star hanging on King Leonidas' neck. The game becomes a silly contest among the animals, where the rules are made up on the spot, and Sailor Moon tries in vain to grab the Star from King Leonidas, while being knocked down repeatedly by the animals. Following the game, Sailor Moon secretly switches the Star with her referee's whistle. Sulfurous, King Leonidas runs after the Sailor Senshi to get it back. But Sailor Moon offers Elliott some liquor as a gesture of peace, which triggers a fiery belch on King Leonidas. The king steals the Moonstone from Sailor Moon and the Mirror of Incanta from Sailor Venus and flees with Quint.

At Toontown, Quint makes the first wish. Quint wishes for a castle for him, and King Leonidas, one that is impenetrable and also one that is feared, and a giant castle in the sky, similar to Momsanto, comes out of the magic mirror and floats into the sky. Quint then tries out the castle and destroys several small areas and buildings around Toontown with large lasers. The Sailor Senshi and the Cardcaptors eventually find King Leonidas's Castle. Sailor Moon fights Quint, while Sailor Mercury finds a safe containing the Moonstone and the Mirror of Incanta. King Leonidas boasts about the power he now has, with the Moonstone and the Mirror of Incanta in hand. Suddenly, Sailor Moon uses Moon Healing Escalation and Sailor Venus, at the request of Artemis, destroys the Moonstone with Crescent Beam. Sailor Moon wishes for the mirror would vanish forever, and it shatters! Sailor Venus turns King Leonidas into a rabbit with her Transformation Pen. Suddenly, without the Mirror of Incanta to maintain it, the flying castle begins to collapse and self-destruct, but the Sailor Senshi, along with Budgie and her grandfather, escape just in time. The Sailor Senshi use Sailor Teleport to return to Yen Sid's Tower with the Star in hand and deliver it to Yen Sid.

Quint, Mac, Boss and Captain are arrested by police. Budgie and her grandfather adopt Slasher and Boof while all the animals and fairies return home. Sailor Mercury presents Luna and Artemis with the Moonstone's essence, hoping to get it repaired. They does so, the newly-repaired Moonstone and the restored Mirror of Incanta are in the hands of Sailor Moon.
