It’s time to vote for the plot of our own Movie Island! What’s the story going to be? It’s all up to you! Read through each of the entries below, then scroll all the way down to cast your vote. I’ve edited them so they’re shorter or *ahem* more grammatically correct. I also wasn’t able to include plots that didn’t have enough details or plots that didn’t use the villain you all voted for. (Sorry, Crazy Flame, your plot was entertaining and crazy fun, but the winning vote for villain was for a jealous actor.) Put your reading glasses on, because there are a lot of amazing plots to choose from! The polls will close next Monday, February 11th at which point the winner will be announced. (And, FYI, the final part of our Design Our Own Island project will be coming up with a costume for the winning villain!)
Entry #1: The Plot of Seymour the Stuntman (submitted by Smart Dolphin)
As soon as you leave the blimp, you get stopped by a talent scout, who will be a helper for the rest of the island, just like the journalist for the New York Times on Mystery Train Island. He says that you look like you would make a good actor/actress and takes you to the movie lot. You then meet the director, who decides that you would make a better actor or actress than SEYMOUR THE STUNTMAN who is currently going to play the role (Seymour is the villain, and this is his reason to try and stop you). You visit the stunt area, the costume room, the script writer’s room, your trailer (which is basically where you meet with the talent scout every now and again), the set (which changes throughout the island, since you’re filming a movie, and a movie doesn’t take place in one room alone), and other various rooms. Seymour then sabotages things (e.g. scrambles all the scripts up, hides the costumes, hires the REAL versions of the villains in the movie [e.g. ninjas, thugs, etc.]) and finally, takes your trailer to some far off place, leading to a chase scene, like in Cryptids island or Wild West island. The director, incidentally, films the scene in the helicopter, and decides to put it in the movie. Also, the talent scout, who was in your trailer when Seymour hijacked it, getting another point of view. Plus, the car you took had a camera in the dashboard, since it was a car for the movie, getting yet another point of view. Seymour changes his ways, knowing that he’s now going to be in the movie again. After the red carpet premiere, the director hands you your medallion.
Entry #2: The Plot of Katrina Fotographica (submitted by Red Wing)
You have to play in a movie…a Poptropica Movie! And act previous scenes from islands out! Important heroes and villains (and Funneh Bunneh) are helping you out along the way. The villain, a jealous actress named KATRINA FOTOGRAPHICA, is trying to stop you because she wants the lead role and hopes that if you mess up, she’ll get the role instead. The different areas of Movie Island are scenes from previous Poptropica islands with Katrina trying to get people to stop you along the way.
Entry #3: The Plot of Pat Rio (submitted by Prickly Tooth)
When you first jump off the blimp, you run straight into a male actor, PAT RIO, and a female agent, both arguing about something. The woman says, “Enough, your lunch break is over and you don’t have a co-actor. If the director finds out what you did, you will be in big trouble.” Pat turns towards you and thinks you are the actress Sierra Star. You basically have to find out that Sierra was kidnapped and you have to figure out what happened to her while keeping your identity hidden. The characters helping you along the way include the manager of the villain, extras who claim to have heard screaming, and Sierra’s parents (who are in fact very wealthy). Pat is trying to stop you because with Sierra gone, he would be the star and you could screw up the acting. You have to travel through Main street (which is basically in front of a modern cafe and a back of a studio), hair and makeup (as soon as you enter the studio), filming (after hair and makeup), the beach (which is where the actor’s house is), the cellar (which is under a bunch of rocks at the beach), and the last room, where the actor basically tries to set the set on fire.
Entry #4: The Plot of Kim Kantact (submitted by Bendy Turtle)
An actress named KIM KANTACT that nobody likes and watches is jealous that people still enjoy old movies more than hers. She uses a machine to travel into and mix and mess up the classics of all genres into one movie to end their popularity. You have to use a machine to go into the run-together movie to sort everything out and individualize them. It would have all the common genres such as comedy, romance, western, science fiction, action, adventure, etc. For example, for science fiction it would have a mixture of Star Wars and Star Trek melded together with scenes in the Enterprise and Death Star. Kim would go through the areas in all of them and get in your way and you’d have the good guys in the movies helping you and the bad guys against you. After the plots of the movies are sorted and you’re about to push the button to individualize them again, you have to beat Kim to finish it. Once you’re done, you can go through the individual movie areas and talk to the characters and such to go back and meet again with your favorites.
Entry #5: The Plot of Clarrisa DeLantis (submitted by Cute Tooth)
You get off the blimp, see a doctor come, and then blackout. You wake up in a random hospital room with a psychiatrist, Dr. Grayson. The doctor says you are a film director and have short-term memory loss from getting hit in the head by a stage light on the last movie you made. The doctor says you have a movie to make. You then start making the movie and directing it when an actress, CLARISSA DeLANTIS, walks in and abruptly stops the take. She then gets into an arguement with you about some random topic about a movie mix-up. You get confused and ask, “Me?” Then Clarissa stomps off saying how much she wants revenge for when you were supposed to put her in a good role, but you accidentally mistook her for someone else and put her in the background, which messed up her career. Your psychiatrist then suggests you should go talk to her and ask her what’s up. You go outside and find a note taped to the door saying: “I’ll get revenge. Just WAIT!” You take the note and run inside to show the doctor and the doctor suggests that you find her. You have to find Clarissa and stop her from stopping you from making another movie, which is her way to get back at you. You black out just when you walk into where Clarissa is, and you wake up in a chair on a stage in what looks like a theater. A scared-looking guy comes and gives you a script. You notice Clarissa behind the curtain. Then, you read the first line of the script kind of dully and Clarissa comes out saying it with power. This basically goes on and on and it’s the battle of the stars. If you defeat Clarissa, the judges that you never noticed in the audience come forward saying that they never really liked Clarissa, and then give you the medal. To defeat Clarissa you have to say the correct lines from the script the guy handed you. Clarissa leaves town crying her eyes out and never comes back again. There’s a bonus part for the members: Trying to figure out who dropped the light on your head or if it was just an accident.
Entry #6: The Plot of Jessica S. Tar (submitted by Noisy Shadow)
After you exit the blimp you see a director crying out. You ask him what’s wrong and he explains about the dissapearences of three of his best actors. You go into a gift shop, talk to a police officer who is confused by the disappearences and thinks about giving up. You say you’ll solve the case so he gives you a file on all the actors that were on the island in the last month (with a stamp defining if they’re missing). You then proceed past the prop warehouse next to it (the door is locked, you need a key-card) and the Directors house (he doesn’t want any visitors) to the trailer park where all the actors live. You first visit one of the missing actresses, Luna Looney, and find a blonde hair, which is odd because she is a brunette. Then after leavin you find somebody dropped a draft of a note – it’s a ransom for the missing actors! You go forward to one of the sets where you find a water bottle with a finger print. You overhear a conversation between two teen actors saying that they couldn’t believe they dropped that fake ransom note – you confront them about it. One clue failed. So you walk back to main street and you meet one of the Directors who invites you into their home. You start talking about the case and ask him who the blond hair belongs to he says either JESSICA S. TAR or E.A. Ting. You leave and when you do you find a prop worker that they heard screams from the Prop Warehouse next door. He takes you there and then you get knocked out by the villian. You come to in a water tank – it’s filling up! But you manage to escape. You grab a key-card left on the ground, and find a door with a key-card lock. You use the key card and go down the secret room to find all the missing actors. Then Jessica S. Tar comes in, talks about being over-shined and proceeds to start the mini game – you have to avoid getting hit by movie equipment and props while moving closer to her. You evetually knock her out and rescue the actors. You are given the island medallion after she is arrested. Bonus Quest: Just after you get your medallion you find that Jessica set a group of bombs all over the island set to explode in 30 minutes, and you must find and deactivate each of them. One is in the Directors garden, two is on the roof of the warehouse, three is inside her trailer, four is in one of the sets kitchens and the fifth and last is in the water tank you were previouly held prisoner.
Entry #7: The Plot of Harriet Heartless (submitted by White Fang)
You have to try save actress Veronica Von Seymors who is being held by HARRIET “STAGE STOMPER” HEARTLESS. Harriet used to be an actress but stopped because she got jealous of Veronica. Also, Harriet is also wanted for capturing other rival actors too. The innocent actors get saved but Harriet always escapes. Veronica’s talking dog, Sprite (Veronica doesn’t know that sprite talks. Neither does anyone else) helps you.
Entry #8: The Plot of Charles Stevens (submitted by S-Dragon)
You jump off the blimp in Bollywood, the center of movie-making in India, and are greeted by the director of the movie.

It’s your job to stop Charles and save the movie before he ruins it all.
Entry #9: The Plot involving the French Actress and her Pet (submitted by Pink Angel)
You play in a movie and have to help it become a success. A famous French actress helps you with her pet (a little dog, panther or snake). The villain took the role of the bad guy cause he was a bad actor. Obstacles in your way are things like falling objects, people helping the bad guy by blocking passages with movie materials. You get through it by using objects you found or they gave us. You travel through the entrance, a souvenir shop, the lounge of the famous French actress, filming rooms, a big wealthy city (rich because of the good actors and artists there), the actress’s pet’s fan club room, different cinema rooms, and a guardian’s room.
Entry #10: The Plot of Tiffany Shard (submitted by Sammysa)
You are an assistant to the director or producer. The director is one of those guys who just barks orders at people and makes you do everything for him, which is how you get to know the rest of the crew and some of the cast. You know, like “Go tell someone that we need the set to blah blah blah.” By talking to all these people you find out that the actress TIFFANY SHARD is jealous of the new, inexperienced, but talented and kind-hearted actress who stole the lead and bumped her down to a supporting character. Then strange things start mysteriously happening to the new lead…before she DISAPPEARS! The shy understudy of Tiffany hears things that other people wouldn’t and is a great help. Tiffany treats her understudy like some kind of servant, and the understudy is fed up with Tiffany treating people that way – herself included. There is a dramatic moment near the end where you help the understudy break out of her shell in order to stop the villain! The locations are: the main set where you meet the camera guys, the hair and makeup area where you meet one of those really kind, motherly, stylish ladies who does the hair and makeup and she has a French assistant. At one point, you have to sneak into Tiffany’s dressing room with the help of the understudy to find evidence. Other locations include: the directors office, the prop room, the place where they do the special affects where the guys are really bored because they haven’t gotten to any of those scenes yet.

NATHAN MEWS, the nephew of the guy from Cryptids Island, likes your character but then he finds out you got a better role then him on a movie. So he talks the director into giving him the villain role in your movie that you’re the hero in. He takes the traps a little too far. First he kidnaps the director and film people. When you go to the set to shoot you’re alone with him and he ties you up. You wake up in an old-time movie and you have to defeat Nathan. When you win, you untie the director and he will give you your medal.
Entry #12: The Plot of Violet Amberson (submitted by Orange Catfish)
You talk to a director that tells you that there is an actress who can never get her lines right and he says that he is going to hold auditions that night to re-cast the actress’ role. He leaves saying he has to get home, dropping one of the audition tickets with the address of the movie set. A bus comes and you climb on and get to the movie set. Once you’re there you see the producer. He too is complaining about the actress and he asks you if you want to fill in. You say, “yes” and he takes you to actress to tell her the news since he’s scared that she’ll throw a fit. You go and tell her the news and she does have a fit and threatens you to death. She stomps away to the producer. He tells you you are brave because you broke the news to the actress and says he will help you. The actress wants revenge, because you stole her part in the movie.
Entry #13: The Plot of Lara Louella Loretta Lorenza Lottie Lillian Luck (submitted by Quiet Star)
A new movie is being filmed, when the producer ends up in the hospital after being hit by a car. The script flies away when he is hit. You then have to a) retrieve the script papers, b) advertise the auditions and c) pick the actors/actresses and film it. The producer’s daughter, Madeline Jones, was there when her father got hit. She therefore knows the vague directions in which the papers blew. After telling you this, she says that unless she can tag along, she won’t tell you the directions. The villain is LARA LOUELLA LORETTA LORENZA LOTTIE LILLIAN LUCK, an actress who is absolutely despised by Madeleine Jones, and she has every reason to be (she’s snobby, rude, drama queen, diva, constantly hogging the spotlight…You know how it is). Once she finds out about the soon-to-be-movie of the century that was being written by the oh-so-famous John Jones, she has to star in it. Leading role would be preferred. But because of her unfortunate relationship with Maddie, she would never get the part. And if she doesn’t get it, well, no-one should, isn’t that right? Wrong. To her it is, obviously, but to anyone else, it isn’t acceptable. Not at all.
It would start on Bollywood Boulevard, an Indian themed street with bright colours and beautiful women clad in saris. This is the street where John Jones gets knocked over. It would then progress to Hollywood House. This is a big mansion. The papers have floated into Hollywood House and you have 1:30 seconds to find all the sheets in the massive place. This would be one of those mini-games. After, you would discover Cartoon Castle, a street where the amazing animations and cartoons of the years are featured. In Cartoon Castle, it would be a good idea to get some autographs, same with HH. So there will be a shop in CC where you can get cartoons made and you would make an advert for the auditions, which are held in a floor in HH. Later, at the auditions, you would watch three people auditioning for each of the major parts and you have to select one to play each part. Of course, the people are kidnapped *dun dun dun* and you have to pick up clues to find them. When you finally locate them, you start filming and leave it for the night (you film on Stars Street. Again, get autographs). Unfortunately, the next morning, the camera is gone! You then realise there are some shady charcters appearing in every street and room of HH. This is where the autographs come in. You pay each person in autographs for information, and then you finally locate the villain. She is locked up for theft. You finish filming, the film gets big, and you have your name under Director!
Entry #14: The Plot of Metal Head (submitted by Hyper Fish)
At the beginning is a competition on a place named “ON TV”, where everybody gets their roles with their behavior. The main actor’s name is METAL HEAD, a strong woman. Somebody gets the role for a slave and Metal Head gets jealous. So she stops you. You must be in the movie by fighting against her. But she is stronger. When the director sees her fighting so hard he chooses her as the villain for his movie. As for places – movie plaza, open garden, a warehouse to collect items for the movie, a desert, the hanging place for the villain (the rope can be found in the warehouse), the police station and things good for a movie. The items – the rope, wine, guns, posters etc.
Entry #15: The Plot of Lucile LaFluer (submitted by Fast Stomper)
A sassy French model named LUCILE LAFLUER suddenly wants to be in a movie and you happen to be trying out for an extra. The director, Bob Directo, hates Lucile and wants someone else to be the lead, then you just happen to be the person he points to…so Lucile stomps out of the room. There should be at least 1 set for each island- therefore the movie is called Adventures in Poptropica! So when Lucile “goes back to France” it’s to the French movie set! Then the extras start to disappear. Then Bob shows you your trailer and you think you see a shadow. Thankfully you make it through another night but all the extras are gone! Lucile never went home, so Bob starts saying he’s cancelling the movie. You object and he says that if you find the extras and the crew then he’s not cancelling the movie! So you go to Bob’s trailer and the door is locked – time to find a key! Or, sneak in! So you click on the window and you use a crowbar to open it. You hear moaning…well you’re not scared! And….It’s Lucile, the crew and the extra’s. Hmmm….. well, all but one extra is missing! Who is it? It’s Hannah, the little 11-year-old extra. Just as you start to suspect, the door opens and someone throws the director in all tied up!! Then you hear a lock click. Oh no! But wait the window! You go out and the extras follow you (mini army!) You follow a shadow, who is the actress’ mom! Then you turn around and Lucile is dangling Hannah from a pole at the shark! You jump up and kick Lucile off and Hannah falls into a foam pit (which are very comfy). Huzzah! You win and Hannah gives you something she found in the foam pit!
