Both brothers come to aid of said royal siblings to save their sultan father Al-Mumtasin from their wicked magician uncle Al-Ashar and his monstrous pets/familiars like Sssstttt. All the while their older sister Wendy searches desperately to find a way to join them while their parents check if any of the lost boys who came back with their children last time have disappeared also.
