Storyline

Marnie and Dylan have graduated high school and are now going to go to college at Witch U in Halloweentown. Marnie is offered a full scholarship, Marni's mother, Gwen of course does not want her daughter at school in Halloweentown so she forces Dylan to tag along. At the school, witches and warlocks can't use magic. Marnie soon makes a new friend named Aneesa, whom is a genie. Marnie soon discovers that she is partly to blame for the rules against the use of magic at school. At one point a box, with the name "S. Cromwell" inscribed on it, magically appears in front of her. Most people at the school believe that Marnie used her magic to conjure up the box, but it was brought to her by fate. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: When this school was first established, and enchantment was placed on the campus. All spells cast at Witch University become permanent at midnight on Halloween.
Marnie Piper: You mean 'permanent, permanent'?
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: Indeed. And for many years it was a fine deterrent. Until we had a small mishap.
Marnie Piper: How small?
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: A simple, magical housecleaning lesson went horribly wrong. Half the freshman class had to be sent home as teacups.

Not Return to Halloweentown, more like Come to Crap-O-Weentown
29 October 2006 | by (Mississauga, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a disgrace to the Halloweentown trilogy! It didn't make sense, the plot was boring and the acting was pretty bad. Sara Paxton could not pull off the role of a collage student, and I didn't like how they made Marnie and Ethan flirt with each other. It was a disgrace to the Halloweentown movies and deserves to be eliminated. I didn't like how there was no Aggie! It made this movie worse than what it already was. Debbie Reynolds and Kimberly J. Brown always played the leads and they basically made the Halloweentown movies. And neither of them were in this one! That is too stupid for words. I wish that they would have waited for Kimberly to finish her other film, and added Aggie to the script. And put Sophie in there! I can't believe Disney did this! I'm disappointed.
