Things are happy in "A Kingdom of Fairies" with a Prince and Princess preparing to marry. Danger is foreshadowed when the Princess receives a magic flower, to guard her from evil. Suddenly, a wicked Witch appears. She is angry because the King forgot to invite her to the engagement party. The Prince fights off the Witch, who disappears in a ball of fire. Later, the Princess is sleeping in her boudoir when the Witch appears. In order to attack the sleeping beauty, the Witch takes away her magic flower and tears it to pieces. Some protection. The Witch summons a band of demons to kidnap the Princess. With help from shapely fairy Bleuette Bernon (as Aurora), filmmaker and Prince George Melies must make an arduous journey to rescue the princess.
