3.0 out of 5 stars Unsold Pilot episode. March 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
The situation. This TV production aired as an episode of "The Wonderful World of Disney". The usual Sunday Night slot Disney aired for decades. This was a very "rudderless" period for the company and they tried a lot of experimental things. Most notable were remakes of successful films and sequels to them. Many were actually pilots for TV series based on the original films. These projects often involved new casts or, in the case of followups, different continuity. Beyond Witch Mountain aired the week after or possibly a few weeks after they aired the original classic Escape to Witch Mountain. It is really an unsold pilot for a series based more closely on the original and ignores the first sequel because it had mixed reactions from fans of the original. At the time it was very hip for critics to put down Disney for not being "relevant" or contemporary enough. It had been that way for over a decade. Even when Disney scored a hit at the box office, critics would criticize anything juvenile. Only re-releases of old "classic" Disney productions were tolerated. Films, usually the animated ones, made before the death of Walt Disney himself and before the creation of the Motion Picture Association of America and its ratings system. There was a major disconnect between the intellectuals who called themselves critics and what the public felt was safe for their kids to see. So, you had the X rated Midnight Cowboy winning "Best Picture" the same year that the G rated "The Love Bug" was number one at the box-office. Basically, Disney was clobbered by the newspapers over everything they made. In my own opinion I really cant think of a film from this period that I dont enjoy. This includes Return from Witch Mountain. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Follow-Up March 10, 2012
This movie short is a very poor follow-on from Disney's Witch Mountain series. It is set supposedly after the first movie, Escape to Witch Mountain, and completely ignores the continuity of the sequel, Return from Witch Mountain.
In the proper sequel, Tony and Tia are escorted back to the human world by the uncle who took them away to Witch Mountain at the end of the first film. They're teenagers, and it is clearly stated that the trip is their first time away from the Witch Mountain community since their rescue as children.

In Beyond Witch Mountain, the children leave Witch Mountain soon after being rescued and taken there, in order to follow their uncle who claims he is going to find his grandson. The uncle dies soon after leaving the mountain and in a quasi-Yoda moment, his body vanishes, leaving Tony and Tia to carry on the search for the missing child alone. This is the same uncle who is alive and well to deliver Tony and Tia to the city years later when they're teens going on their first vacation.

The only continuity adhered to is with the continued determination of Aristotle Bolt to capture the kids, and Jason O'Day's determination to keep them safe.

The only actors retained from the original movie are those playing Bolt and O'Day. Tony and Tia are played by different children, which also detracts somewhat - given that the characters were played by the same actors in both Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain. (They also cameoed in Race To Witch Mountain, as Sheriff Anthony and the waitress Tina)

Without having seen the proper Witch Mountain movies first, this might possibly be quite a watchable film short. The acting is quite acceptable, but the continuity errors are unforgivable.

Lastly, at a mere 48 minutes, this simply is not worth the money when full feature movies can be purchased for much less.
