Storyline

Eleven-year-old Annie has been living in an orphanage her whole life run by cruel Miss Hannigan. After unsuccessful escape attempts, Grace Farrell comes to take the child home to live two weeks with billionaire Oliver Warbucks during Christmas. The plucky orphan worms her way into the hearts of the staff and Mr. Warbucks and even the president of the United States! Even though Mr. Warbucks wants to adopt her, she is still looking for her real parents who left a locket with her when they dropped her off at the orphanage. Miss Hannigan's brother and his sleazy girlfriend pose as Annie's parents to gather the reward that Warbucks has offered to Annie's real parents. Written by <ragheadchick@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Among the changes from prior versions to this version are:
  • Four songs, including the original title song, "Annie", which was not in the Broadway score, but was written for the prior movie version;
  • A subplot involving Sandy's going missing in the original musical;
  • The White House "Tomorrow" reprise, which was replaced by a scene involving Grace Farrell and Annie; and
The ending is subtly changed, in that Miss Hannigan, not Lily St. Regis, pretends to be Mrs. Mudge. See more »

Goofs

The location of McGillicutty's Tavern moves. As the truck drives away with Annie in the laundry, it shows the tavern as being down the road to the right of the orphanage, whereas at the end of "Easy Street" when Rooster, Miss Hannigan, and Lily dance down the road and into the tavern, it is to the left of the orphanage.

Alicia Morton Gives Annie Lavish And Style!
8 November 1999 | by (New Canaan, CT) – See all my reviews

This spectacular new version of Annie is something nobody should miss. Songs like "Maybe" "Tomorrow" and "NYC" are just too good. This is what you call Movie Magic. Because I can't believe how amazing this movie is. It's even better then the orginal and half of that goes to little Alicia Morton who plays Annie in this irresistible remake of the all time classic!
