The movie employs interactive technology to allow the audience to choose their own adventure and various choices they make early on also impact how the story ends with multiple possible endings.
Due to the interactive nature of the film, the film offers various possible “endings” that lead to the movie ending earlier depending on choices the viewer makes. However all early endings result in the audience being re-routed to a choice that extends the story with the final shape of the film resembling the following plot points:
Kimmy Schmidt, now a hugely successful children’s author, plans her wedding to Prince Frederick (Daniel Radcliffe), 13th in line for the throne of England.
