Storyline

Two centuries after Snow White (Camryn Manheim) and Cinderella (Ann-Margret) had their adventures, the Nine Kingdoms ready themselves for the coronation of Prince Wendell (Daniel Lapaine), Snow White's grandson, to the throne of the Fourth Kingdom. But an evil once-Queen (Dianne Wiest) has freed herself from prison, and turns the Prince into a golden retriever. Wendell, by means of a magic mirror, escapes into a hitherto-unknown Tenth Kingdom (modern day New York City) and meets Virginia Lewis (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and her father Tony Lewis (John Larroquette). Pursued by trolls, cops, and a wolf in man's form (Scott Cohen), the three blunder back into the Nine Kingdoms and begin their adventures to restore Wendell to his human form and throne, and find the magic mirror that will take Tony and Virginia back home, all the while unknowing that Virginia already has a connection to the Nine Kingdoms that may prove to be deadly before we reach Happily Ever After.

Trivia

When the Evil Queen (Dianne Wiest) threatens the enchanted dog to do her bidding, she tells him "there are no masters here, only one mistress." That line is directly inspired by Queen Elizabeth I's statement to her court, that she would have one mistress on the throne and no master. See more »

How much I enjoyed this movie.
22 January 2005 | by Wildcherry71586See all my reviews

In this movie there were so many great things that not only brought up childhood memories but it also brought back an imagination to people all over the world. When I first watched the series on TV, it was like watching something that you could read in a book. Everything looked and sounded real. While watching this movie when Virginia losses her mother for the second time its just so hard to understand why this is happening to this young girl even though it is just a movie. This movie can actually take you to any of the nine kingdoms to explore with them. I really love this movie because its just so magical and so beautiful that really no words could describe how good this movie is. There are not enough hours in the day to be able to watch this movie. If I had the opportunity to watch this movie all of the time then I would.
