New Day is the first episode of Season 2 of Angry Birds Stella and the fourteenth episode overall. It premiered on the Toons.TV app on October 9th, 2015, along with the next episode Friends Whenever.
After last season's startling conclusion, Stella really missed Gale. The other birds (sensibly) don't feel the same way. Stella finds a friend who can understand her feelings, but this friendship might be more than she bargained for.
The episode begins at the rock pile from season 1 finale. Stella can be seen attempting to dig through the rock pile in the bed to find Gale with no chance of succeeding. Soon, Stella is on her down back to the tree house. Suddenly, she saw Gale. Thinking that Gale has survived from the volcanic eruption, Stella was happy to see her, but it was just a wooden outfit with a Minion Pig controlling it and now he's down. Stella soon pulled out the Minion Pig. The Minion Pig then saw Gale's burnt cape and was mourning. However he was hungry (his stomach was rumbling). Stella decided to take him to her treetop houses so she could feed him.
In the next scene, Dahlia, Poppy and Luca could be seen posing for Willow's painting. Stella leap past, saying hi. The rest of the gang said hi in return. The Minion Pig also did the same thing and the gang also said hi but then realized that the Minion Pig said it. Poppy and Dahlia immediately went to Stella to discourage her from helping the Minion Pig. Despite multiple attempts to convince Poppy and Dahlia to allow her to keep the Minion Pig, they were still unwilling to allow her to do so. Stella decided to just turn the other, which the minion pig also did.
In the third scene, Stella and the Minion Pig were attempting to get past her friends like Ninjas. Soon, they were in her house where Stella could give the Minion Pig some food, in this case fruits. Then, someone was at her door. Stella went to check but no one was there so she decided to open the door. Suddenly, two more Minion Pigs appeared. Stella, thinking of the hardships they faced, allowed the two Minion Pigs in. Just as she was about to go to bed, Stella saw the Minion Pig sleeping. Satisfied that they were safe and happy, Stella went to bed. Meanwhile, more Minion Pigs entered her house.
The following morning, when Willow, Poppy, Luca and Dahlia were preparing breakfast, Luca went to check on Stella. Meanwhile, Stella woke up to discover she was sleeping on the newcomer pigs. With someone knocking on the door, Stella went to check to see it was Luca, who wanted her to join him and the rest of her friends for breakfast. Stella knew Luca would betray her if she just let him in immediately so hid all the minion pigs in which ever place possible. Soon, she was out. Luca then heard an oink sound. Stella imitated the noise and sent Luca out. Pleased that he was going away, Stella went back to her house but then discovered that it was going to burst with the extra minion pigs entering the house. It did and sent Stella rolling down with the Minion Pigs. Luca was also caught in the path of the pigs. At the bottom of the slide, Poppy, Dahlia and Willow felt some tremor and were horrified to discover that it was a huge Minion Pig group and they were all going to crash on them! Stella and Luca had a good laugh but the other birds were not seeing the funny side. The female birds argued and then left Stella. Luca, knowing he did something wrong, joined the other female birds. Stella then discovered that Poppy was sweeping away the Minion Pigs. Angrily, she decided that she would take care of the Minion Pigs no matter what they would do. At the bottom, Stella told all the Minion Pigs to follow her.
The fourth scene shows Gale's castle. The door opened and soon, all the Minion Pigs in the castle were having fun. Stella realized this type of fun was life-threatening or completely silly and had to intercept to save them like a Minion Pig sawing another Minion Pig in a barrel, another Minion Pig drilling through the ground with a jackhammer, a Minion Pig wearing a bucket on his head about to fall down the cliff, a Minion Pig putting on makeup on wrong parts of another Minion Pig's face, some Minion pigs trapped in a barrel, a Minion Pig hitting another Minion Pig's head with a hammer and Handsome Pig crying over the loss of his beloved Gale. Stella was soon horrified and had the face in Gale's castle bedroom with all the minion pigs. Stella then looked out of the window to see the treetop where she lived and started to regret her latest choice of actions so leaving the minion pigs alone, she set off for the treetop. However, she then realized that she was being followed by the minion pigs. She did not want them anymore so she told them to stop following her. After a while, she left. The minion pigs were stuck as to who would take care of them now. Suddenly, they heard Gale's voice and they were happy to see her, despite of her injury.
