When Columbia Pictures bought the film rights to "Annie", it included the rights to make sequels. Despite the poor commercial performance of the original film in relation to its high budget, producer Ray Stark still kept the idea of making a sequel alive. It was on and off Columbia's production slate for several years until TriStar Television, noting the original film's popularity with children on home video, agreed to make it as a made-for-TV movie, to be released simultaneously on home video.

Christ. A sequel to one of the most cloying films of all time, this at least has the decency to leave out the songs (bar a reprise of the unbearable "Tomorrow") but unfortunately continues the tradition of being nauseating and unfunny. This time, Annie and her friends head off to London and get caught up in Joan Collins's plot to blow up Buckingham Palace or some such nonsense.
The movie has a bizarrely sycophantic attitude towards its eponymous character at odds with how irritating she is: every time she squeals "Leapin' lizards!" I could feel my teeth grinding themselves into powder. Drearily photographed, slushy and plodding, the only things the movie has to recommend it are one memorable line "Unhand me, you stupid genius!" and the fact that it's not the original.
