Another Annie movie, telling the beloved story of young Annie who is an Orphan but believes her parents are still out there. Who gets taken in for the holidays by richest man Oliver Warbucks, where she charms him to want to adopt her.

This version was really good, it was told so beautifully, each person played the part perfectly and filled with talent. I found that I really enjoyed it, their voices were really sweet, the connection between them were amazing and it was a great version.

I absolutely loved Alicia Morton who played Annie in this, she was so talented as an actress and singer. Her portray of the role has got to be one of my favourites. She was such a loving and hopeful little girl and it all shines through. Her voice was incredible and the control she had was unbelievably so good. I loved her interpretation and the way she captured the purity and innocence of the character.

I adored the connection between Annie and Warbucks they had such a fun relationship, I loved the way they worked off each other. They were really adorable and it was such a precious relationship. I also really loved how motherly and loving Grace was towards Annie the whole time, she Instantly seemed like her mother and it was beautiful.

The songs were all done really beautifully and I loved how everyone sang them, they suited their voices really well. The cast and the way the story was told in this one was really sweet, I did really enjoy watching this version. I know it’s older now but I honestly don’t think I’d seen it before, I’m glad that I have now though.
