Two centuries after Snow White and Cinderella had their adventures, the Nine Kingdoms ready themselves for the coronation of Prince Wendel, Snow White's grandson, to the throne of the Fourth Kingdom. But an evil once-queen has freed herself from prison, and turns the prince into a golden retriever. Wendel, by means of a magic mirror, escapes into a hitherto-unknown Tenth Kingdom (modern day New York City) and meets Virginia and her father Tony. Pursued by trolls, cops, and a wolf in man's form, the three blunder back into the Nine Kingdoms and begin their adventures to restore Wendel to his human form and throne, and find the magic mirror that will take Tony and Virginia back home, all the while unknowing that Virginia already has a connection to the Nine Kingdoms that may prove deadly before we reach Happily Ever After.

The 4th Kingdom is clearly based on Germany, from several details including: its central location on the map of the kingdoms (which was based on a map of Europe), its large size, and the proposition that it be divided into quarters to be run by the Council of the Nine Kingdoms (akin to Germany's division by the Allies after WWII) See more »
In the scene where the Huntsman enters to the Evil Queen staring at Virginia, he announces, "My lady, we have a problem in the kitchens." His mouth clearly does not move at near the same time as the words. See more »

I was pleasantly surprised by this mini-series. It's rare to find something that both adults and children can enjoy together. I watched this with my five year old nephew and he loved it, as did I.
This story combines all classic fairy tales with a modern twist. The scenery and costumes were great. Although the running time is long, the story moves keeps your attention and isn't slow paced. The actors did an excellent job. I found myself laughing out loud at the antics of some of the characters, like trolls singing along to Saturday Night Fever. In my opinion Scott Cohen made the series thanks to his portrayal of the wolf. He has gained a new fan in me.
I recommend this mini-series to all, whether young or young at heart.
