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

Trivia

During the scene in which Marnie attempts to magically open the box, a couple references are made to other famous witches in cinema. She twitches her nose, as seen in "Bewitched," and cocks her head, as seen in "I Dream of Jeannie." Coincidentally, Debbie Reynolds' late close friend Agnes Moorehead starred on Bewitched, also as a magical grandmother. See more »

Goofs

When Gwen Piper is talking to Aggie in the soup pot at the beginning of the movie, it sounds like Aggie addresses Gwen as Linda. However, she is really saying 'Gwenda' as a nickname for Gwendolyn. See more »

Quotes

This movie was horrible
17 July 2007 | by ajal1989See all my reviews

This movie was just horrible, and I hope that they make another one to redeem themselves.Hopefully this time they will have the right Marnie, because if they don't it will probably be worse than return to halloweentown!Not only is the acting just horrible, the characters are horrible as well! I mean they don't have Sophie, or their grandma. Another thing is that the whole plot doesn't make any sense. Than they didn't even know who the Cromwells were. The sad thing is that I cant even remember half of the movie. The only thing I remember is her going to the college. Other than that I cant remember anything that had happened in the movie. I cant remember who the bad person was and what they wanted!
