Midnight Academy is my proposal for an animated feature film. The story is based on the Grimm fairytale, "The Twelve Dancing Princesses." In my retelling, the story features a young girl named Adeline whose dream is to become a famous ballerina.
Heartbroken about being denied to a prestigious dance school, Adeline considered quitting ballet altogether. However, she discovered a mysterious wristwatch within her dance bag.
At midnight, the wristwatch suddenly opened a portal! A magical being stepped out and presented Adeline with an amazing invitation. She had been selected to train at the miraculous dance school, Midnight Academy!
In this enchanted realm, it is permanently midnight. Dancers from all over the world come to practice and celebrate their diverse dance styles. Additionally, the otherworldly residents of the academy, called princes and princesses, dedicate themselves to teaching the dancers and watching over the land.
Thanks to the advice from her mystical mentors and the support from her new dance friends, Adeline started to rekindle her love for dance.
Each night offered new adventures from exploring the forest outside campus to trying new dance techniques.
However, difficulties arose when Adeline accidentally let a banished prince return to Midnight Academy. Furious about his rejection, the prince caused time to resume in the realm. As a result, the sun began to rise and destroy the academy.
With the group of her new dance friends, Adeline endeavors to prevent the dawn before time runs out...
