"The Halloweentown Trilogy is just as entertaining for adults as it is for children. I began to wonder if Disney would or could tie up the Halloween tales with a third and final installment. I can honestly say that once I got over the fact that the young cast had grown considerbly, I was happy to note that the storyline was just as entertaining as the others. Much praise goes to their writing team!! Disney has truly made modern classics out of these. The special affect of Grandma Aggie's bag turning into a crocodile is quite a computerized jump from the less sophisticated bag in the first movie. But all the movies seemed to have their own area of computerized magic.
It would be hard to choose favorites out of the three. They are all so wonderful, but if I had to: Halloweentown would be my favorite with Halloweentown High second and Kalabar's Revenge coming in a very close third. Nothing beats the excitement and sense of childhood adventure that could be experienced in the premier movie. But, Disney has out done themselves on giving each installment it's own unique storyline to capture the viewer's attention.
This is a nice clean trilogy with no gore or verbal language to worry about. I do not consider it one of those teeny bopper High School movies, since High School is just the setting not the true story line. I do wonder why Sophie's character was cut back more and not involved in the problem solving part of this movie as compared to others. (Maybe her schedule was not as open for her to come back?) The storyline did NOT suffer from this though. It was a joy to see the entire cast back together again. I am very happy to finally get a dvd set of these movies, since the only way I have watched them is taped off Disney. I will watch them a hundred more times!!!! I highly recommend this trilogy to families and school Halloween parties everywhere!"

"Wow do i remember watching the first one back in 98! I was a 9 years old back then. It was a good movie to watch. Good clean fun and nothing with bad words. The adventures of Halloween could never be this fun. It has all the cool things in it. Monsters,witches and all types of things for children. Even though now i'm 16 i still watch all the Halloweentown movies. I hope they make a 4th one. I think parents and younger children should watch all of the movies."

"I can't get enough of Halloweetown and it's inhabitants. It was fun to see how the young stars of the first film have grown up, though not quite a shock with Kimberly J. Brown. I've been a fan of hers for years. But onto the review. HH is an awesome movie, though I wish that they would've actually gone to Halloweentown in it. It was fun seeing Marnie in school. The problems that she faced trying to keep her friends from finding out about her and her friends from Halloweentown were hilarious. Marnie's powers are tremendously more advanced in Halloweentown High than they were in the other two movies, though her spells don't always have the desired effect most of the time. She tries to make a magical set of rooms in her house but ends up shrinking the house instead. A skeleton is attacking someone and Marnie tries the spell that her grandmother uses to make something go away but ends up only making the skeleton several times larger. There were only two things that I didn't like about the movie. One, there was no commentary track by the cast, and two, the audio is 5.1 surround sound. If you don't have a surround sound system, the sound will be compressed which can make the volume get a bit softer in places. I don't have a 5.1 system yet, but I'm hoping. If you're any kind of fan of Halloween or Kimberly J. Brown, get this movie, along with the first two and enjoy the holidays !"
My daughter and I love this movie!!!!

"My daughter, age 7, and I love this movie. For the past couple of years, we couldn't wait until Halloween so that we could watch the Halloweetown movies on Disney. We watched them over and over; therefore when they became available to purchase, we were very excited. These are good, clean, fun Halloween movies. We highly recommend them."

"These Movies are Awsome! I was always a fan of the trilogy and when Halloween came around I always turned the tv and watched the show. The Halloweentown Movies are for all ages, not just for kids. I also love the characters, it makes you want to be a part of the cromewell family and joined in with all the fun and exciting adventure they have in Halloweentown. This flim is a bit more darker with the Iron Knights out threathen all things magic and letting kids of halloweentown vist the mortal world. It a tale of a family always stick together to get though the hard times that lie ahead. The actors/actress who played in this flim did a marvolus job, I though. The Stoyline is Fantasic too. This movie would be an awsome halloween treat to watched I rate it Five stars."
