Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich, bachelor, (jumping to a wrong conclusion, she and Diana chased down Rachel Lynde's cow, thinking it was Dolly) & immediately sold it to John Blythe. [When she realizes her fault, Anne & Marilla do a special visit to Rachel Lynde & her longtime husband, Thomas. During this visit, Thomas Lynde dies & Rachel Lynde became a widow!] and wins (to her chagrin) Rolling's Reliable baking soda (that was forged by Diana) company's writing contest. She acts as Diana's maid of honor, and refuses Gilbert Blythe's marriage proposal; which sends her to teach Kingsport Ladies' College, an exclusive all girl students' school, where she meets opposition from the principal, Miss Katherine Brooke, and the Pringle clan (one of whom is the rich, handsome bachelor). But while Anne won the numerous conflicts & battles, and the friends she makes, she returns to Avonlea.Written by

When Marilla reads the dedication page from Anne's book, the text of the dedication is shown on-screen; and although it states "...and to Gilbert...", Marilla "reads" "...and for Gilbert...". See more »
The 2011 wide-screen 'Restoration Edition' DVD uses alternate, outtake footage not seen in the original 1987 film. The first 30 minute reel of 'Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel' had a very deep negative scratch in the emulsion layer of the film. This accident occurred during the creation of a 35mm theatrical negative in the early 90s, damaging the first reel beyond repair. This meant each shot in the first reel had to be completely rebuilt from a variety of sources. In some cases, each frame of the film had to be completely Photoshopped in order to repair it, particularly during sequences where action was passing across the screen. In some cases, director Kevin Sullivan determined that the damage was too significant, so scenes were reconstructed using outtakes. Second and third takes were used. See more »

A continuation of an absolutely beautiful masterpiece!
It is imperative that this sequel be seen in unison with the prequel!!They join together to form an absolutely astonishing experience. I'm in love with their whole world. Kevin Sullivan has helped create a wonderful place to escape to. Anne of Avonlea strengthens the blissful experience of the first film, not only with the maturation of Anne Shirley, but with new, lovable characters.
