It's September, 1915. Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe have been engaged for some time, but life seems to always get in the way of them actually getting married.

Anne, who has resisted moving to New York City in the past with him, decides to go this time.

This is the first film in the series not to be based on anything actually written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. But it is very loosely based on the 8th Anne novel "Rilla of Ingleside", actually written about Anne and Gilbert's 7th and youngest child, Rilla and her time during WWI. See more »

[Anne sees Gilbert and runs to meet him, but falls flat on her face]
Are you alright? Nothing broken or bent I hope.
Only my pride. Oh, Gil, help me up. I'm purely blind and a fool to boot! Oh, if I were blind, I should never forget the contours of your face. Why didn't you let me know?
Well, I wanted to see you face to face. I have something to ask you.
Let's go take a walk down the lane!

When I first saw the first Anne of Green Gables at the library, I nearly screamed out loud. I loved the book, and my friend had told me about the movie. So when I found it, I immediately watched it. It followed the book amazingly, at least in my opinion. I was wrapped in this world that had been in my imagination for the longest time and now I could visually see it. In the book, I was so adamant against liking Gilbert because Anne was so against liking him, but the movie completely changed my perception.
Recently, I just found The Sequel to Sullivan's Green Gables. It had the exact same affect on me as Green Gables. I liked that he incorporated a couple of the books into one movie. At least he BASED it off the books.
Now, as for this movie. It's horrible. I haven't read all the Anne books, but from my watching this movie, I couldn't stand it. It's so far from Anne of Green Gables as California is from New York. It has no place being called Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story. Even the character seems different. They aren't the same lovable Anne, charming Gil, and innocent/naive Diana. Admittedly, they are older, but they seem as though they aren't themselves.
Why wait thirteen years to make another Anne movie? It makes no sense. . .
