"13 Wishes" is the second TV special of 2013. Gigi Grant, Twyla, Whisp, Catty Noir, Wydowna Spider and Fawn make their animated debuts.

Summary

The story starts with Frankie narrating about a story about the genie of the lantern Gigi who stops her "shadow" Whisp from influencing Fawn. The story, after the starting sequence, Frankie meets up with Draculaura, Cleo, Ghoulia, Abbey, Clawdeen and Lagoona and they all discuss wishes for the new year. Outside, Heath, Manny and Clawd attempt to get on the show "Die Trying" but fail.

A while later, Howleen bumps into Gory and is called "fur-gettable". Howleen's best-friend, Twyla, tries to comfort her but she takes it to heart. She hatches a plan to get everyone's attention, but ends up in the attic with Clawdeen and her friends. After a argument about popularity, Howleen unintendedly finds Gigi and gains her 13 wishes. The first she uses to get out of detention. Whisp, having been released alongside Gigi, notices a eclipse in 3 days and sets her sights on prompting Howleen. Both Gigi and Clawdeen tell her to be careful but Howleen accuses Clawdeen of telling her how to use her wishes. Frankie notices Gigi get uncomfortable about the idea of sisters.

In the courtyard, Lagoona and Gil are upset as Gil's parents are preventing them from being together, even in classes. Howleen, not wanting her friend to be upset, uses her 2nd wish to turn Lagoona into a Fresh-Water monster like Gil. She uses her next one to get Clawd, Heath and Manny on Die Trying and the fourth to help Abbey become Student Disembodied President, much to Cleo's annoyance.

Entering the toilets, Howleen is again teased by Gory and Whisp convinces her to wish to be popular. Gigi tries to convince Whisp otherwise but Howleen can't see Whisp, only Gigi (although Twyla can sense her). She makes the wish and is invited to Operetta's party on the Saturday. Robecca, Deuce Gorgon and a vampire all compliment her and she is full of joy.

Notes

References

  • The title "13 Wishes" is a play on the 2010 movie 16 Wishes.
  • Lagoona's transformation sequence is loosely designed after the 1486 painting The Birth of Venus.

Continuity

  • When Howleen enters the attic, a purple hat, a magic apple, a ring, and a bottle with purple liquid are on display. These refer to various students and teachers of Ever After High.
  • The mirror Howleen drops and breaks is likely the mirror spoken of in the diary of Madeline Hatter from Ever After High.
  • As Howleen is walking outside looking for good uses for her wishes, she passes by Rochelle reading a letter and holding a rose petal. These two things are from Garrott DuRoque, with whom she reunited in "Scaris: City of Frights".
  • The Grimm Brothers are characters from Ever After High.
  • Scarah and Invisi Billy are described as an item, which they are shown to become in "Scarah-Voyant". That webisode did not air until two months after "13 Wishes" premiered, but chronologically comes first.
  • The first ever in-cartoon mention is made of Clawdia Wolf, who would debut properly in "Frights, Camera, Action!".
  • Whisp's motivations and her fragile bond with Gigi are more fully explained in Gigi's 13 Wishes diary, which pays more proper attention to Whisp feeling disposable compared to Gigi.

Errors

  • There is little consistency in the scope of Howleen's wishes. For instance, her popularity, student disembodied president, and headmistress wishes reduce almost the entire student body into mind-controlled slaves, but "randomly" do not affect various characters. Why the effects of these wishes differ so greatly is not explained. Howleen's wish to undo her previous wishes also has inconsistent effects. For instance, the Howleen masks all disappear on the 12th wish, but none of the 13 Wishes: Haunt the Casbah outfits are changed for 'Signature' outfits, despite them being a direct result of Howleen wishing the girls banished to the lantern. Particularly peculiar is the Die Trying un-wish. Clawd, Manny, and Heath are just pulled from the show, but they have been on it nonetheless, as proven by Spectra's interview and Crash's presence at the party.
  • When Draculaura is doing Abbey's makeup in the washroom, none of her is seen in the mirror. Traditionally, her clothes do show up.
  • After telling the story of how Whisp came to be, Clawdeen closes the book. When the screen zooms out, it is somehow open again.
  • Throughout the movie, at random parts, both of Howleen's ears are upright.
