Fairy Tail: Priestess of the Phoenix (ＦＡＩＲＹ ＴＡＩＬ 鳳凰の巫女 Fearī Teiru Hōō no Miko) is a movie based on the manga and anime series Fairy Tail, by Hiro Mashima. This movie premiered in Japan on August 18, 2012. The movie has been licensed by Funimation and was released on DVD/Blu-Ray on November 27, 2013.
The movie takes place sometime after the timeskip. Two teasers have been released; two promotional images, one made by the creator of the series, Hiro Mashima, an image produced by the animation studio, a preview trailer, and a second trailer.
The rule of the main visual and the official title, "Fairy Tail: Priestess of the Phoenix" that was just finished has been lifted. On this main visual, it marks the debut of the appearance of the mysterious girl that's the guest character of the movie, Éclair. This character carries a mysterious stone named Phoenix Stone, which plays a very important role regarding to the mystery in the movie, and unexpectedly drags members of Fairy Tail and her into a giant conspiracy.
Fairy Tail, a Mage Guild that solves various requests, with "Magic and Fighting Spirit" as their daily life, gets a request that flew in with "I want the leader of the bandit group that's eating the nest in a certain harbor town, Geese, to be apprehended" inscribed. Natsu and the others, who are looking forward to the big reward, set out to the place included in the request in high spirits. However, because of a mistake Lucy made, they let Geese to escape right in front of their eyes. With the request failed, Lucy, who was depressed by herself, met a mysterious girl named Éclair and a strange bird named Momon on her way home. Éclair somehow lost her memory, and the only thing she remembers is that she must deliver the Phoenix Stone in her possession somewhere. Éclair, who hates magic, doesn't want to cooperate with Lucy and her friends. With the secrets being hidden in the Phoenix Stone and with this meeting being the start, there is much for Fairy Tail to expect, including a sinister plot and a brand new enemy, waiting to strike!
SummaryThe film starts at night, in the Fire Village, where a ceremony to seal the two Phoenix Stones is being held. However, the ceremony is interrupted, as it is attacked by a group of Magic troops who killed every Mage who tried to defend themselves and the village. During the attack, a wounded village chief teleported himself and Éclair to a safe place where he told her to bring the Phoenix Stone to Kalard in the Boundary Forest and later died in her hands. Back at the destroyed village, two soldiers retrieve the other Phoenix Stone and gave it to their leader. After receiving the old man's instructions, Éclair starts running for her life until she fall unconscious and everything goes black.
In a port town of Negura, Team Natsu accepts a job request posted by the town's mayor, with the mission being to capture Geese, a leader of a bandit group. During their fight against Geese's men, Geese manages to get away, angering the mayor who refuses to pay the reward since the mission was a failure.
In the Magic Council Headquarters, the Council members are seen holding a meeting with the Guild Masters to discuss about a mysterious Magic Power related to Zeref in the northern territories of Fiore. In break-time, Makarov comments that the meeting took way too long and requested Gajeel and Pantherlily to investigate the mysterious power.
Returning home, Lucy encounters Éclair and her birdlike companion Momon. Upon passing each other, Éclair collapses to the ground so Lucy brings her to the Fairy Tail guild hall to recover. Hearing a premonition from Carla, Éclair leaves to enter the monster-filled Boundary Forest. Lucy and her friends offer to accompany Éclair to protect her. Éclair then tells them about her aversion to Mages and Magic, but reluctantly agrees.
Meanwhile in the Principality of Veronica, Prince Cream hires Carbuncle to capture Éclair who has the other Phoenix Stone in reward of 400 million Jewels plus fees of protecting the duration of the ceremony. In a bar, as Cannon and Coordinator comment about the nature of the job, Dyst sends Chase to track down and capture the girl and declares that they'll put their guild's reputation at stake as he telekinetically lifts his drink and cheers with his guildmates not realizing that their conversation was being eavesdropped by Gajeel and Pantherlily on the other side of the bar.
In a train, Natsu and his friends travel to the magnificent city of Rose Garden where they enjoy their free time except for Éclair, to whom her duty was the most important. In the Hills Hotel, Lucy, Éclair and Momon are attacked by Chase after Lucy finishes taking a shower. Lucy, who was wearing just a towel, grabs Éclair and Momon and escapes the hotel room from Chase and then gets rescued by Natsu, Gray and Happy. After the attack, Lucy asks Éclair if she knew who the attacker was and accidentally gets nude when she stands up, embarrassing herself and the others.
Éclair tells Lucy and her friends that she has amnesia, and remembers she must bring the mystical Phoenix Stone in her possession to a Mage named Kalard living in Boundary Forest. They eventually reach the remains of Kalard's House to find out that he was long dead. Through a holographic message, Kalard reveals himself to be Éclair's father and tells her of a spell he created to dispel the stone's cursed magic. Upon hearing her father's message, Éclair starts crying but is then comforted by Lucy, who tells her she had the same experience. After that, Éclair starts to warm herself towards Fairy Tail and requests them to fulfill her father's last wish. Shortly after returning back to the guild, the guild hall is attacked by Carbuncle Mages who manage to kidnap Éclair and take her stone.
Fairy Tail's master Makarov Dreyar and fellow members Gajeel Redfox and Pantherlily then arrive with the news of Carbuncle's activity. The guild learns that there are two Phoenix Stones, one of which is in the possession of Prince Cream, who plans to combine the stones and summon the Phoenix who will grant him immortality. Team Natsu, along with Gajeel, Pantherlily, and Juvia Lockser go to Veronica to rescue Éclair, defeating Dyst's subordinates there, but not Dyst himself. Meanwhile, Cream combines the two stones and tries to burn Éclair as a sacrifice, as a sentence from breaking his nose earlier. Momon frees Éclair but burns to death.
As Cream summons the Phoenix, Dyst blasts him away to attain immortality for himself. The "Phoenix" was revealed to be a giant, metal monster, who starts destroying everything around it. Dyst climbs on its back in order to obtain its blood to grant him eternal life. Laxus and the Thunder God Tribe then arrive to assist Natsu in stopping the Phoenix. Natsu follows Dyst and defeats him, but the Phoenix continues to rampage the country. After Natsu defeats Dyst, more Fairy Tail members arrive, assisting the others in destroying the Phoenix.
Makarov arrives in Veronica with the rest of Fairy Tail, who begin attacking the Phoenix. Makarov gives Erza the Arrow of Haja, a magic arrow created by Kalard and stolen from the Magic Council, to destroy the Phoenix Stone and the Phoenix. Meanwhile, Éclair tells Lucy that she has regained her memories, telling her that she is immortal, having been living for 400 years after drinking the phoenix's blood to survive the raid on her village where Cream's ancestors took one of the stones and formed Veronica. Makarov explains that, by destroying the Phoenix Stone, it will kill Éclair along with the Phoenix. Despite Lucy's protests, Éclair accepts her fate. Erza fires the arrow into the Phoenix's eye where the Phoenix Stone is located, with Natsu jamming the arrow further through until it pierces the stone. Upon the destruction of the Phoenix, Éclair's body fades away along with it, and her spirit reunites with Momon's as they ascend to the sky as a true Phoenix forming the guild mark of Fairy Tail.
The film ends as Natsu consoles the grief-stricken Lucy over Éclair's death, comforting her with his words and holding her close to him. As the credits start to role, a montage is then played, showing the people of Veronica rebuilding their homes, surviving members of Carbuncle sitting among the ruins, Fairy Tail members repairing their guildhall and Lucy smiling as she spots Éclair's spirit among the townsfolk in Magnolia.
