Annie A Royal Adventure! is the 1995 (in the US) sequel (1996 internationally) to the 1982 film version of Annie. It was made for television. Unlike its predecessor, which was distributed by Columbia Pictures, it was released by its companion company, Tristar Pictures. The sequel takes place in 1935, as the original took place in 1933. It is part-American and part-British, as the most part is set in London. The film's length is approximately 93 minutes long. Aside from a reprise of "Tomorrow," there are no songs in it.
Annie is back! Along with her friends Molly, Hannah, her dog Sandy, and her wealthy father Oliver Warbucks. They take a trip to England where Oliver Warbucks is going to be Knighted by the King. Annie and the gang stumbles onto a wicked scheme led by an evil noblewoman who plans to blow up Buckingham Palace so she can become Queen and claim the throne for herself! And now it is up to Annie and her friends to stop her!
