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 »

I can watch this over and over again. I own the book,VHS,DVD, and the soundtrack and anything thing else i can get my hands on. This was well written well acted and just all in all great. This movie was one of the best things NBC could have done. Me and my entire family love this movie and say nothing but good things about it. I watched it when it first aired and when they replayed it a year later. I'm a big fan of every one that was in the cast so it's hard to name just some. This movie can sweep you away to another world and let you watch the beloved fairy tales that have been told for many of years come to life on the screen. The places where they shot the movie like Austria and england were beautiful scenic areas. The music is great and you can't help but fall in love with the 10th kingdom. I also love the fact hat they left it off for a part two and i'm hoping if there ever decide to they will have if possible depending on their schedules have the original cast come back. I recommend this movie for everyone who has loved fairy tales! ~!
