Atlantic: Forever Atlantic! is the movie, season finale, and the 79th episode of Season 36.
As he and the Octonauts are finally back from their missions at the Yangtze River in China and celebrating their arrival back home in Disney Junior Island with their DJC friends, Kwazii is called back to Atlantis to face Lord Fathom and Hopper, who after Fathom has finally retrieved all the pieces of his broken emerald, have fused into Lord Hopper, and are now trying to take over land, sea, and even air. Presented with his biggest challenge yet, Kwazii must figure out a way to defeat him and save his friends, family, and the people of all worlds.
The episode begins with Lord Fathom trying to find the last piece of his emerald, when the Octopod nearly knocked Sinker off his shoulder as Fathom growled and saw that the Octonauts have just arrived back from the Yangtze River in China, but as the dust cleared, something green and shiny caught his eye and Sinker went to retrieve it to reveal that the thing was the last piece of the emerald, and he gives it to his master to complete the emerald. After his emerald was finally in one piece, Lord Fathom gets an idea as Sinker climbs back onto his master’s shoulder before he (Lord Fathom) could swim to wherever they’re going.
Meanwhile, in his room, Kwazii was looking through the glass dome window with an excited expression on his face as he couldn’t wait to see his friends back at Disney Junior Island again after the long journey through the sea. He’d hoped that they were waiting for him and the rest of the crew at Starlight Beach, and he couldn’t wait for the surprise they've been planning for them, although he wondered what it could be. As usual, it might be a surprise party, and that thought made Kwazii even more excited! Just then, Captain Barnacles, Peso, and even Tunip have entered his room to give him back his ocean pearl bracelet, which is neatly fixed and polished, after it got a little banged up in the undersea storm. Kwazii thanks Tunip and puts his bracelet back on. Afterward, Dashi announces that there are only thirty miles left until they can reach Disney Junior Island. Peso states that he cannot believe they went to the Yangtze River in China to help Min the red panda and mapmaker, and some other Chinese river creatures, then come all this way to home, noting they have come a long way, to which Kwazii sighs. Captain Barnacles agrees but then notices Kwazii’s anxious expression and asks him what is wrong. Kwazii explains that he’s excited to see the Disney Junior Club again, but is worried that Sofia might not be there since she and her step-siblings are too busy at their new schools. Captain Barnacles assures him that things will do fine, and who knows? Sofia and even Prince James and Princess Amber might be at the party too. As they finally arrived in Sparkle Ocean and sets the Octopod down, it was just as Captain Barnacles assured Kwazii: all of their DJC friends were at Starlight Beach and have set up a surprise party for the Octonauts’ arrival back home, and best of all, all the sea animals from the Octonauts’ past, the Terra Monsters, the Descendants, the Star Darlings, and Kwazii’s family was there too. Even Sofia and her family were at the party, too! With a watery smile and joyful tears forming in his eyes, Kwazii ran up to his sister, Ribbon, who gives him a hug to welcome him back, then Calico Jack joins in, and so do Captain Jake, Sofia, and Connor, and soon, the party begins and everyone celebrates. Everything was great, and even the food and welcome back home cake Cubby made were delicious, but just as Kwazii was about to ask for another slice, his ocean pearl bracelet glows and vibrates as Kwazii gets a call from King Milo, who tells him that Lord Fathom is coming to Atlantis. After telling the king that he’ll be there in a second, Kwazii announces to everyone that he’s going to Atlantis for a big emergency, much to everyone’s dismay as Captain Jake asks him if he has to and that the party’s just begun. With a sigh, Kwazii tells his best friend comfortingly that he’ll be back in time before the party ends, and that saving Atlantis once again is more important. Nodding in understanding, his friends all wished him good luck as Kwazii teleports himself to the city of the sea.
Later, when Kwazii appeared in Atlantis, he finds it very odd for the merwizard to come here. He quickly realizes that Lord Fathom might be here to seize the king and queen’s throne and make himself king of Atlantis, and then he thinks that Fathom might be leading him to a trap, but with a smirk, Kwazii might have some tricks up his sleeves just as Milo, Kida, and their daughter Kudas run towards him, relieved that he’s here, and ask him if he has a plan. Kwazii nods, meaning that he does. Using all of his ocean pearl bracelet’s powers and with the help of the Atlanteans, Lord Fathom and Sinker were defeated and thrown into prison, and later, Kwazii is back to spend more time with his friends and family in their party.
At Starlight Beach, Kwazii came back just in time to sing in his band, the Octonaut Stars. However, he remembered that he didn’t write a song because he and the Octonauts were too busy on their missions in the Yangtze River in China. Luckily, the letters and texts that he got from his friends inspired him to make up a new song to sing and as he and the Octonaut Stars finished, Kwazii names the new song, “We’re Back and Better Than Ever!”, as all their friends and family applauded, much to their joy.
Back in Atlantis, Sinker visits Lord Fathom in his prison. Suddenly, Hopper's spirit appear, and so does Scroop, after losing his crew! When Lord Fathom asked him who he was, Hopper explains to him that he'd been watching him in his battles with the Disney Junior Club, and thought that he would help him deal with them, especially Kwazii. Sinker wasn't sure if this was a good idea, but Lord Fathom grins evilly and gladly accepts to team up with the spirit. Hopper floats and encircles around Lord Fathom, then suddenly, both spirit and body fused together to form a new villain, much to Sinker's surprise as his eyes grew wide at his master's new form! From now on, Lord Fathom and Hopper fused together were known as Lord Hopper! As Sinker oohed at the new villain, Lord Hopper held out his palm, then shot a green blast of evil magic at the little cuttlefish which transforms him into a Cthulhu! Finally, everything was all set for the new villain!
Back at Starlight Beach, Kwazii was helping the Vegimals clean up and with his magic cleaning brush, it made cleaning for them easier. Little Matey appears and is glad to see Kwazii back in Disney Junior Island, when suddenly, Kwazii gets a call from King Milo, again! He informs him of Lord Fathom’s release, unusual transformation, and the imprisonment of the Atlanteans. Kwazii decides to bring Pearl and Little Matey with him and heads back to Atlantis on the baby dolphin’s back.
At Atlantis, it is revealed that Lord Hopper has put Milo under a mind spell and has forced him to call Kwazii so he can lure him into a trap! Lord Hopper plans to conquer all, starting with... Disney Junior Island! Kwazii, Pearl, and Little Matey arrive at the Atlantean palace. King Milo and the others warn him about Lord Hopper's trap. Unfortunately, as Kwazii and Pearl stop in time, Little Matey falls into the trap: a magical barrier that keeps anything from getting out. Milo reveals the real purpose of his call earlier. Kida tells Kwazii that Lord Hopper's goal is to spread evil everywhere he goes and is heading to Disney Junior Island. Preston also warns him that Lord Hopper is going to seal the entrance to Atlantis and that if he does not get through in time, he will be trapped in the city...forever! With Little Matey trapped, Kwazii uses super speed to make him fly and swim faster and heads to the entrance. Sure enough, Lord Hopper has cast a spell to seal the entrance. Thanks to his super speed, Kwazii gets through just in time. Kwazii and Pearl also find Lord Hopper just in time to see him conjure a legion of Jellyfish Soldiers to conquer Disney Junior Island with. Kwazii and Pearl feel they cannot handle this on their own and fly off to go get more help.
At Avalor, Princess Elena, Naomi, Mateo, and Gabe were at the harbor when suddenly, Kwazii and Pearl arrived looking exhausted from swimming all the way here as Elena asks him what he was doing here. After catching his breath, Kwazii explains the whole thing to the crowned princess and her friends, and that he needs their help. At first, all four were skeptical but after seeing the storm clouds forming in the sky, they were in shock and soon start to believe Kwazii after agreeing to help immediately as Naomi asks what they should do to help. Looking at the clouds coming, Kwazii and the four huddled so they can listen to him explain his plan. In the city, Elena, Naomi, Gabe, and even Isabel and her friends and also the jaquins unleash an ambush on Lord Hopper and his soldiers. Mateo also appears and uses his magic to stop Lord Hopper, but his magic was no match for the evil half-merwizard, half grasshopper's magic! Kwazii urges his friends to go to the castle and stay safe. However, his friends tell him to do that as they still want to help. Unfortunately, after Kwazii leaves Avalor, Lord Hopper easily subdues them with his mind control spell, forcing them to tell him where Kwazii is going.
On his way back to Disney Junior Island, Kwazii tries to summon Aquamarina the Aquafox, when Lord Hopper appears right in front of him. Kwazii uses him aqua spiral to encircle Lord Hopper’s wrist, but Lord Hopper snaps the aqua spiral, causing Kwazii to lose his balance and fall out of the air. Luckily, Aquamarina arrives, catches Kwazii on her back, and swims him to safety. They try to sneak into the island to warn his friends and family, but Lord Hopper begins placing his powerful curse over it. Seeing how badly they're outmatched, Aquamarina tells Kwazii she knows a perfect place to hide, and she and Kwazii make a hasty retreat. Watching the heroes swim into the distance, Sinker volunteers to go after them, but Lord Hopper states it won't be necessary, as he intends for Kwazii to hopelessly watch as he takes away everything he owns and loves. Back at the island, Lord Hopper, Sinker, and the army of Jellyfish Soldiers have arrived on Starlight Beach. Captain Jake and Sofia try to fight back, but Sinker takes the sword and Enchantlet, enabling Lord Hopper to take them and the rest of the Disney Junior Club prisoners after ensnaring them in his mind control spell.
Meanwhile, Kwazii and Aquamarina have retreated to the Octopod’s Library. Kwazii discovers Lord Hopper’s conquest in the distance and feels like all hope is lost. Suddenly, his ocean pearl bracelet glows aqua. Then suddenly, a book that Kwazii doesn’t remember being in the library called The Tale of Kwazii Cat is selected. Kwazii goes down the steps to receive the story. The book goes through the pendulum and the Narrator tells Kwazii his latest story:
- Once, there was a brave cat named Kwazii, who lived with his father and enjoyed his life as a pirate sailing on the high seas. He was happy, but missed his grandfather, Calico Jack who was lost on his adventures, and his sister and mother, who had divorced from his father when they were kittens. When he was all grown up, Kwazii was asked by a polar bear named Captain Barnacles to join his crew called the Octonauts, and Kwazii gladly accepted. But still, even with the undersea and land adventures he had, Kwazii still wanted more than he can bargain in his life. Until one day, he and the Octonauts moved to Sparkle Ocean and Disney Junior Island laid on it’s sparkling waters, where he met and made new friends, Jake, Sofia, Miles, Catboy, and received a magical ocean pearl bracelet Ariel’s father gave him as a reward for saving Atlantica. With his new powers, Kwazii gained the responsibility to protect his friends, family, and all those who dwelt in his new home. So when the day came that the evil Lord Hopper took everything Kwazii held dear, the brave pirate cat was faced with his biggest challenge yet.
Kwazii sadly notes he already tried to give his story a happy ending and he failed. The Narrator of the book reminds Kwazii that he is the hero of land, air, and sea. Suddenly, the book then turns into a man who is revealed to be the Narrator--the second Storykeeper and the younger brother of the first Storykeeper who built the Secret Library centuries ago and filled it with many books that remained unfinished. He explains that he created the book of the chosen hero and tells Kwazii that he is one of the few who has been able to finish the stories for his book so magnificently. The Narrator then reminds Kwazii that all he loves is in danger and only he can save them. However, he also explains that he must be willing to face this evil on his own and be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. Kwazii sends Aquamarina to the harbor to wait for him and exits the Octopod Library to save his friends and family.
Reaching the Disney Princesses’ castle, Kwazii uses several clever methods with his powers to sneak inside without getting caught by Lord Hopper and his Jellyfish Soldiers. First, he uses his aqua wings and combines his super speed so he swims faster to the passageway to Ariel’s room. He then enters Belle’s room with his shrinking ability. After that, he then uses his magic tracking to track down Catboy’s magic to find his friends and family in the tower. Whirlpool and Magic show up. After explaining what is going on, Kwazii turns into a dove with his animal transformation. After sending his Terra Monsters to get help, Kwazii flies into the tower. He manages to break the spell Lord Hopper cast on his friends and family thanks to using it to acquire the counter-spell and Sofia’s wand to cast it, and with help from the others’ Terra Monsters, breaks Kwazii and the Disney Junior Club and even Kwazii’s family out.
When they get to the harbor, they board on the Mighty Colossus to escape. Captain Barnacles intends to get everyone to safety on Neverland before returning to retake Disney Junior Island from Lord Hopper, but Kwazii tells the captain he must stay, stating that "friends and family" isn't just those that stick to him, but also the entire island. Captain Barnacles agrees, but he still refuses to turn back because of the huge danger Lord Hopper possesses. But Catboy sticks up for his mentor, stating he is willing to protect all their friends, families, and everyone else, even their worst enemies, from any threat. Kwazii sprouts out his aqua wings and flies off, Catboy sprouts out his wings of love to fly and follow Kwazii, then Sofia flies with them, Captain Jake lets Izzy turn the Mighty Colossus around as she throws pixie dust on him to make him fly, Sheriff Callie uses her lasso to fly and Doc climbs on, and Miles uses his jet boots to fly, and all seven of them fly back to the castle, with the rest of the Disney Junior Club and Kwazii’s family the following suit.
When they arrive back at the castle, the seven DJC friends, after remembering how King Milo, Queen Kida, and Princess Kudas were trapped inside the ocean pearl bracelet’s three gems, decide to trap Lord Hopper inside it as well. His friends distract Lord Hopper, Scroop, and Sinker and Kwazii activates the ability, but Lord Hopper snatches him by the tail, intent on dragging him inside with him. Sofia grabs Kwazii’s paw to save him, and Captain Jake, Catboy, Miles, Doc, and Sheriff Callie help her, but the force is too strong and the pirate cat’s paw and the princess' hand break apart, and Kwazii is sucked into the bracelet with Lord Hopper. However, with Lord Hopper trapped inside the ocean pearl bracelet, the effects of his magic get undone; the cursed barrier imprisoning the Atlanteans disappears and the people of Avalor and Disney Junior Island are freed from the mind control spell (as for the Jellyfish Soldiers, they turn into cute and cuddly jellyfish pets that breathe underwater). Ribbon arrives with the rest of the cat family, then Catboy sees Sinker (now back in his cuttlefish form) and Scroop, and subdues them. Captain Barnacles, Peso, and the rest of the Octonauts and the Disney Junior Club ask where Kwazii is. Captain Jake somberly tells them that he’s trapped with Lord Hopper in the ocean pearl bracelet, to their horror.
Inside the bracelet, Lord Hopper quickly gains the upper hand on Kwazii and prepares to finish him off. But Kwazii stands tall after seeing the spirits of the heroes who have helped him through his adventures. Seeing them encouraged him to be brave and strong, and with their support, he lets the bright light of goodness in his heart shine on Lord Hopper, causing the evil merwizard/grasshopper to dissolve into nothingness, destroying Hopper’s spirit permanently and freeing Lord Fathom from his control. Truly grateful and guilt-ridden for what happened, Fathom apologizes for everything he has done.
Meanwhile, Kwazii’s friends and family, the visiting Elena and her friends, the Terra Monsters, and the Atlanteans arrive at the castle. When Owlette reveals what has happened, Sofia says that she can cast a spell that Cedric taught her to save Kwazii but she’ll need to do it with everyone's help. After the spell was completed, Kwazii and Lord Fathom are free, but Fathom surrenders willingly to the Atlanteans and taken back to be incarcerated again, with Sinker following behind and then climbing onto his master’s shoulder. A relieved Ribbon hugs her brother, then Calico Jack, Mr. and Mrs. Cat, and Pearl join in. King Milo declares Kwazii Hero of the Elements, and he and the other Atlanteans award Kwazii his new uniform that holds all three elements; air, water, earth, and other elements like fire, ice, lightning, light, darkness, and even heart. Luna Girl gives Kwazii back his ocean pearl bracelet. Captain Barnacles thanks Sofia for his help in saving his lieutenant and Sofia replies that she couldn’t have done it without her friends as she joins Captain Jake, Sofia, Sheriff Callie, Doc, Catboy, and Miles to give Kwazii a group hug and Captain Jake says that they are glad to have their leader and friend back and Miles was afraid that they would lose him, just like he (Kwazii) was afraid of losing either of them. With a smile and happy tears, Kwazii tells his friends that they’ll never lose each other again, because they are and always will be the Disney Junior Club, then they head out to start another celebration of his victory, ending the episode.
