Annie: A Royal Adventure! (also known as Annie 2 or Annie 2: A Royal Adventure! is a TV sequel to Annie (1982). It was released in the United States in 1995 and internationally in 1996, and is approximately 93 minutes long. The film has no songs apart from a reprise of "Tomorrow".
None of the cast members from the previous film appear in this sequel. Annie, Warbucks, Molly, Punjab, Asp, and Miss Hannigan are the only characters from the original to appear in this film.
Some years after the 1982 film, Oliver Warbucks, twelve-year-old Annie, her friend Hannah, an eccentric scientist (McDiarmid) and Annie's old friend Molly (who is still an orphan but is adopted by the Webb family), travel to England, where Warbucks is to be knighted by the King himself. However, the kids get mixed up in the scheme of an evil noblewoman known as Lady Edwina Hogbottom to blow up Buckingham Palace while all the heirs to the throne are present for Warbucks' knighting.
