Storyline

Two centuries after Snow White and Cinderella had their adventures, the Nine Kingdoms ready themselves for the coronation of Prince Wendel, Snow White's grandson, to the throne of the Fourth Kingdom. But an evil once-queen has freed herself from prison, and turns the prince into a golden retriever. Wendel, by means of a magic mirror, escapes into a hitherto-unknown Tenth Kingdom (modern day New York City) and meets Virginia and her father Tony. Pursued by trolls, cops, and a wolf in man's form, the three blunder back into the Nine Kingdoms and begin their adventures to restore Wendel 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 deadly before we reach Happily Ever After.

Happily ever after is back!
16 March 2000 | by ShaineSee all my reviews

The 10th Kingdom was much better than I had expected, and I had high hopes going into it! It was a visual delight with fantastic effects and locations. I couldn't wait for each installment. Scott Cohen did a fantastic job as the over-the-top Wolf. I was routing for Wolf and Virginia from their first meeting. Dianne Wiest makes a potentially one dimensional character come to life. Kimberly Williams and John Larroquette shine! The trolls are delightful and disgusting at once, particularly Ed O'Neill. The movie reminded me of all of the fairy tales I heard growing up. I was eagerly awaiting the addition of each new well-known character. Camryn Manheim as Snow White was a surprise, but she did a wonderful job. Happily ever after may not have lasted as long as Prince Wendell wanted, but its definitely back with the 10th Kingdom!
