|Legends of Chima: The Animated Series|
"The Call of Cavora" is the third episode in the third season of Legends of Chima: The Animated Series, and the 29th episode of the series as a whole.
CHIMA is overrun by the Hunters who freeze everything in their path. Eris convinces Cragger and Laval that the answer to stop the Hunters is at the top of Mount Cavora. And in a daring climb, they access the mystical mountain.
“In the magical world of Chima, ancient Saber Tooth Tigers, Mammoths, and Vultures have awakened after thousands of years of frozen sleep. These hunter tribes invade Chima, freezing all in their path with ruthless ice powers. In their first attack, the entire crocodile swamp is frozen over. Only Cragger and Crooler escape. Can anyone stop them? Eris believes her strange fire dreams hold the answer. These are the Legends of Chima.” - Opening monologue
At the Rhino Quarry, Rogon gives an inspiring speech to his rocks. Cragger questions their plan, but Laval reminds him that rocks where the only thing effective against the Hunters during their battle at the Crocodile Swamp.
The Hunter Fortress enters a canyon where they are ambushed from the ridge by the tribes of Chima tossing down rocks. The battle seems to be going in the good tribe’s favor until Fangar orders the Mammoths and Vultures to attack in their airborne vehicles. Gorzan’s mech along with several other vehicles are quickly frozen over and they are forced to retreat. Eris’ jet crashes near a small hill where she envisions a large temple. Sir Fangar rides up in his bike and fires his weapon at her, but they find to their surprise that the hunter’s ice powers aren’t effective around the hill. Laval rides up in his Fire Lion to rescue her with Gorzan’s mech in tow and is instantly unfrozen upon reaching the crescent.
Eris returns to the Eagle Spire where she attempts to explain the temple she saw to Ewald. He leads her to the completely-ridiculous section of the library where she searches for any mention of the Phoenix.
Meanwhile at the Lion City, Rogon, Laval, Gorzan, Cragger, and Lagravis gather in the map room to plan their next move against the hunters. Rogon and Gorzan are soon distracted however by the blue frosting Laval used to represent the ice while Cragger becomes upset that Laval didn’t mark what he had taken over during the civil war. They soon come up with an idea and plan to use the Falling Jungle to their advantage.
The hunters enter the forest, but just as Laval, Cragger, Gorzan, and Rogon are about to leave on their Speedorz to lead them to the Falling Jungle, Eris runs up and suggests venturing to Mount Cavora to find the Phoenix instead. Ewald quickly points out that there is an impenetrable energy field surrounding the floating mountain, to which Eris reminds him that the Crawlers managed to get through. Nevertheless, they continue with their original plan and lead the Hunters into the Falling Jungle with the Eagles, including Eris, providing air support. Their strategy works, though the eagles are soon chased by the vultures. Eris spots Mount Cavora and tricks the vultures into freezing the waterfalls.
Cragger and Laval return to the Lion City where they notice Eris cutting a trail up one of the waterfalls. Cragger immediately refuses climbing up there, citing the legend that one will burst into flames upon contact with the mountain, but Laval manages to convince him. They enter the mountain through a cave and soon enter the heart of Cavora. There, the three heroes are greeted by the Legend Beasts, who sends them up into another room where they are met by a mysterious figure. Outside, the top of Cavora bursts into flames and reveal the Phoenix temple.
