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.

This version is a sad and disappointing return of Annie the orphan-no-more. Silly plot and sub-plots, combined with an under-par acting by most of the actors, and woeful characterization makes this Annie film a real let-down. The antics that Annie get into are downright silly at times, and comic timing is absent at times. The bad guys in this case are so inept that they might as well turn themselves in instead of trying to escape. At least the crooks in the original Annie had much more brains and intellect than most common criminals.
Wait till it comes to free-to-air unless you are really an Annie-fan.
