The Three end-up escaping Serendair by going through Sagia, The Oak of Deep Roots and traveling through the belly of the earth, killing vermin along the way till they come upon a disturbing being that lies deep within.

Once they escape, they arrive on the other side of the world to discover that everyone they had loved died in the destruction of the island, forcing them to re-build their lives. The assassin sets his sights on the abandoned city of Canrif that is now overrun by the demi-humans Firbolg, orc-like beings.

Unknown to them the demon is waiting within the mountain, waiting to strike...

Elizabeth Haydon's series: The Symphony of Ages has just come to a close in her nine-volume series and we're left wondering:

Whatever happened to the Rhapsody movie?

The movie was planned to be made by Fox Animation Studios after Titan.A.E but with the end of the studio came the end of the film. Since it was going to be made into a 2-D animation film, why not make it live action?
