Editorial Reviews

The enchanting sequel to the Emmy Award-winning "Anne of Green Gables" tells the continuing story of Anne Shirley as she makes the transition from a romantic, impetuous orphan to an outspoken, adventurous and accomplished young teacher. Canadian actress Megan Follows returns to her role as Anne. Tony Award-winner Colleen Dewhurst stars opposite her as the aging Marilla Cuthbert and Oscar-winning British actress Dame Wendy Hiller appears as the prickly dowager Mrs. Harris. An emotional conclusion, full of wit and charm, to the epic tale of the beguiling redhead.

First of all, "Anne of Green Gables-- The Sequel" is merely the Canadian name for "Anne of Avonlea", as it was renamed in the States. I see a lot of reviews here which slam the third movie, but that was "Anne of Green Gables-- The Continuing Story". I won't argue with this slammage, but the Amazon DVD offering at issue here seems, by the title and the photo, to be "Anne of Avonlea/Anne of Green Gables-- The Sequel". So on to my review:
I think this movie is a gem; quiet intensity and charm. You can read a million reviews of that aspect here: I'm concentrating on the disc quality, since no one else seems to.
First of all: this disc is a "flipper" (you have to flip the DVD over in the middle of the movie), but people accustomed to changing tapes in the middle of the show on the old VHS version aren't going to whine that much when they have to do the DVD equivalent. I know I didn't.
That said, the picture quality is the worst I've ever seen. Yes, the *worst*. Worse even than when Sullivan put the original miniseries out on DVD. The transfer is exceptionally grainy, and the opening credit montage, with seaside vistas of shoreline and ocean, has horrible compression-artifact induced pixellation: there are hideous globs of blocky-looking areas in the ocean, in the rock, even on Megan Follows' face. It is sad that a beautiful picture like this has been marred by such an unprofessional transfer.
My advice is not to buy this disc. Sullivan Entertainment fooled me once when they sold me the first version of Anne of Green Gables "Digitally Restored" on DVD and it looked awful. Shame on them. They fooled me twice when they put out a "Collectors Edition", and I assumed that they were so embarrassed by the look of the original that surely they *must* have remastered it. Shame on me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Equally as charming as the first one August 10, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
"Anne of Avonlea" is a brilliant companion to the original "Anne of Green Gables." This sequel combines the next THREE novels in the series --- "Anne of Avonlea," "Anne of the Island," and "Anne of Windy Poplars." Several characters are combined to make ONE specific character, but the story still remains very much Anne's story.

Now a little older, having taught at the public school in Avonlea for a while, Anne decides to try her hand at teaching at a private school in Kingsport --- a wealthy town mainly run by a particular set, the Pringles. It's a new and daunting experience --- especially considering that she can't seem to win over the students or the school board --- but her stubbornnes won't allow her to give up, and she charges forward with her usual determination.

There are several new characters, but we still have appearances by the old ones. We meet Morgan Harris, his intelligent daughter Emmeline, his mother and his sister, and of course we meet countless girls who go to Kingsport Ladies College. But Rachel Lynde and Marilla Cuthbert are still around, Diana Barry remains a wonderful friend, and of course there is the wonderful Gilbert Blythe --- more in love with Anne than ever.

This is one of the best sequels I have ever seen, it fits perfectly with the original movie and does a decent job of remaining as faithful as possible to the books, in spite of everything that was altered. I love this movie. To this day, my family occasionally has "Anne Weekends," in which we watch "Anne of Green Gables" one night and "Anne of Avonlea" the next!

The original mini-series of "Anne of Green Gables" ended with Anne (Megan Follows) on speaking terms with Gilbert (Jonathan Crombie), but still the only person in Avonlea who does not know that the two of them are meant to live happily ever after. "Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel" is adapted by writer-director Kevin Sullivan from the second, third, and fourth novels in the series, drawing primarily on the last one, "Anne of Windy Poplars" for her experiences teaching at a girl's school. There is also a major subplot regarding a rich widower who seems to offer Anne everything she has ever wanted that is largely Sullivan's creation; Morgan Harris (Frank Converse) is much older than Anne's other beau in the series. The important thing is that he keeps the ending of "Anne of the Island."

I am sure most of you love all of the Anne books and the first two films, which means the issue is why you should also pick up the DVD versions. The answer is simply the director's commentary. There are a few missing scenes, several of which are alternative takes, and some behinds the scenes still photographs, but the chief charm here is listening to director Kevin Sullivan talk to the film's editor about the production (she does not have much to say; I think she was there to give Sullivan a real person to talk to during the almost four hour film).
