Synopsis


Return to Halloweentown
On the eve of Halloweetown's 1000th anniversary celebration, Witch University student Marnie Piper (Sara Paxton) must enlist the aid of two close friends in order to finally reveal a long-buried secret hidden in an ancient prophecy. Marnie has just won a full scholarship to the prestigious Witch University in Halloweentown, and she's eager to begin studying up on alchemy, amulets, and magic potions. While Marnie is all set to become Witch University's most popular coed, the new ban on magic at the school poses something of a problem for the young witch eager to realize her true powers. Later, Marnie discovers an ancient prophecy that holds the key to unlocking a legendary secret. Now, in order to ensure that Halloweentown's Millennial Celebration goes off without a hitch, Marnie will call on her old friends Ethan (Lucas Grabeel) and Benny the Skeleton in addition to seeking out the wisdom of new pals Professor Periwinkle and Aneesa the Genie. Will Marnie and her friends be able to fend off the evil that threatens to consume Halloweentown, or could it be that this strange and supernatural town has been marked for destruction since the day it was founded? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A Different Marnie makes a Different story

    Although Sara Paxton is good as a childrens' show actress, her role as Marnie was disappointing... but then again, anyone in the replacement of Kimberly J. Brown as Marnie would be. The character of Marnie was distinctly different. Marnie was known to be the stubborn, sarcastic, and rebelliously determined girl. This new Marnie was sweet, peppy, and innocently curious. As a movie on its own, it was alright. The storyline was interesting and kids would like it. But as a Halloweentown movie, it was sad to see a new Marnie and hardly any Grandma Aggie. (The old Marnie-Aggie combination was golden of the other Halloweentown movies). It lost a lot of humor this way. Luckily, there was the same Dylan and Marnie's mother, so that helped it stay connected to the previous movies... but I feel that this movie also threw in random details about the Cromwell lives that makes one think straight-up "whoa... that was really random" In the previous three movies, never was the Cromwell family past brought up, but in this one it was crucial to the plot. Overall as a Halloweentown fan, I wasn't thrilled with it...and though it was an okay movie, I would not recommend it for fans.

    Marnie Piper and her brother Dylan enter college as freshmen at Witch University just as the school implements a "no magic" rule. Dark forces inevitably threaten Halloweentown, can Marnie save the day? For me the hook was the acting skills of actress Sara Paxton.

    A must to complete the halloweentown set.The only down fall is that the original Marnie isn't in this movie.It was still a good movie. You got the background on how halloweentown came about.

    Great Disney movie. Forth and last of Halloweentown series. A different actress plays Marnie and does a great job. As good as the other three movies. Buy this one as well.
