I was really disappointed with these. With a number of cast changeovers from the originals, it really took you away from the movie. Yes, the story line was still fun and very into the halloween spirit, but I stillfelt like it was lacking something.
I prefer the original actress in the movie, I was a bit disappointment to find out the original actress wasn't in it but the new actress did her part. This time marnie is in her college years. She goes back in time to save a certain witch and also has to prove herself in the university that she goes to, that's she's good enough.
What do you think, have you seen it?
Marnie (Sara Paxton, replacing Kimberly J. Brown) and Dylan (Joey Zimmerman) are going to follow their dreams to go to college, at Halloweentown University, which is also known as Witch University. Marnie is offered a full scholarship for her good deeds and for her work in the previous years. Much to her mother Gwen's (Judith Hoag) dismay, Marnie goes, and her brother Dylan reluctantly forced along by Gwen to keep an eye on her. The school is not what it seems. At the school, witches and warlocks can't use magic, instead they learn about Shakespeare and old magic history. Marnie had thought she was going to learn how to use her magic and is now crestfallen. She runs into her old friend Ethan (Lucas Grabeel) and makes a new friend named Aneesa the Genie (Summer Bishil). She also makes three new enemies in the Sinister Sisters, a triad of malevolent witches with whom Dylan is immediately infatuated and are the daughters of Silas Sinister (Keone Young).
This is the final movie in the Halloweentown series. I was disappointed that Kimberly J. Brown did not reprise her role as Marnie. It was a great finale to an interesting story. The Cromwell witches have an illustrious place in history and Marnie has a role to play in having that history come full circle.
