| One Of The Most Beautiful Movies Ever Made
I LOVE this movie. Meagan Follows is again wonderful as Anne Shirley - the red-headed orphan girl taken in by Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. Pet Peeve: When the sequel originally aired on Canadian television (to my knowledge the first place it aired) it was titled "Anne Of Green Gables:The Sequel". Isn't that the way it should be listed instead of "Anne Of Avonlea"? Yes, it is listed as such in the "also known as" list of titles but it's just not the same thing. Okay, that aside, if you haven't seen this movie and you like classy, smart, beautiful movies - this is the one to watch!

Trivia

Though the American title is "Anne of Avonlea", it is only partially based on that Lucy Maud Montgomery book (second in the series), and is in fact based on parts from books 2-4 in the series (out of 8). This was because Kevin Sullivan thought there wasn't "enough dramatic material for a film" in the sequel "Anne of Avonlea" alone.


Quotes

Marilla Cuthbert: You set your heart too much on frivolous things and then crash down into despair when you don't get them.
Anne Shirley: I know. I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset... almost pays for the thud.
Marilla Cuthbert: Well, ...


Goofs

At Diana's wedding, when the minister's wife is singing under the tent, it is clearly raining outside. However, when it cuts to the guests outside at the wedding, it is not raining anymore.


Alternate Versions

The 2011 wide-screen 'Restoration Edition' DVD uses alternate, outtake footage not seen in the original 1987 film. The first 30 minute reel of 'Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel' had a very deep negative scratch in the emulsion layer of the film. This accident occurred during the creation of a 35mm theatrical negative in the early 90s, damaging the first reel beyond repair. This meant each shot in the first reel had to be completely rebuilt from a variety of sources. In some cases, each frame of the film had to be completely Photoshopped in order to repair it, particularly during sequences where action was passing across the screen. In some cases, director Kevin Sullivan determined that the damage was too significant, so scenes were reconstructed using outtakes. Second and third takes were used.
