"The Wonderful World of Disney" Annie (TV Episode 1999) Poster

Trivia

Kristin Chenoweth auditioned for the title role in the original film version of "Annie". She got to the final stages of the audition process, but was turned down because her Southern accent was too thick.
Andrea McArdle, who plays the "Star-to-Be" in the "NYC" Broadway musical number, played Annie in the original Broadway stage production of "Annie". That production opened at the Alvin Theatre in April 1977, played for 2,377 performances, and won the 1977 Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical.
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.
