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

25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having a 7 year old daughter, we have faithfully watched the past 3 Halloweentown movies, so we were very excited about the Return to Halloweentown coming out. I have to say, we were both so very disappointed all around. First, we miss Kimberly J. Brown as Marnie. She is bubbly, and her portrayal of Marnie is perfect. Sara Paxton , I'm sure did her best, but we could not warm up to her. At least find someone who resembled Marnie...big brown eyes...not anorexic etc. Secondly, why couldn't Sophie have been given a part in this? After all, she is probably more powerful than Marnie and since she's younger, maybe the movies should start revolving around her. I understand that sometimes actresses have prior commitments, but maybe that is when the movie should be held up until the actresses are able to return . Thirdly, the storyline was weak. And those 3 "sisters" didn't even lose their smirks and scowls when making the commercial for this movie on Disney. They looked like it was a pain in their patooty to be there. What is their problem? Next time, maybe think things over before going through with the production of something that you know kids are looking forward to for so long.
