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.

Simply Enchanting...a True Treasure.
27 May 2003 | by ivonySee all my reviews

The 10th Kingdom has to be one of the most captivating, spellbinding movies to come along in years. So many have tried, but few have succeeded in creating such a beautifully woven masterpiece as The 10th Kingdom. There isn't a moment of this movie that I did not wholeheartedly enjoy.

Sure, it's long...very long. But with its spectacular visuals, compelling storyline, and off-beat but lovable characters, The 10th Kingdom takes you along for the journey that so captivates, you hardly notice the time that passes. This movie is an adventure of epic proportions that I would rank up there with The Neverending Story and The Princess Bride. Actually, as far as fairytales go, I daresay this is better.

The cast is perfect for each of their roles and acted them out spectacularly. The script is excellent with its many references to so many beloved fairytales...rapunzel, cinderella, snow white...and so many more.

This is a classic in the making. Please, if you haven't yet, check this one out. You'll be so very happy you did. Ten out of ten stars...without a doubt.
