Halloweentown High

Synopsis: Marnie and her friends from Halloweentown are back in this made-for-cable feature. Marnie is a teenage witch living with her family of supernatural beings in the village of Halloweentown. Marnie and her pals are interested in attending high school in the nearby mortal community, where they'll be able to spend more time with kids their age, and with the help of her grandmother Aggie, she's able to convince the town council to go along with the suggestion. However, there's a catch -- if anything dangerous happens as a result of their presence in the mortal school, Marnie and her friends will lose their magical talents. Trouble does make its way to the school, but not in a way anyone expected -- the Knight of the Iron Dagger comes to the mortal world determined to wipe out Marnie and her magical companions.

For 1000 years, the worlds divide.

Creatures of magic

in Halloweentown reside.

Witches and goblins

forced to take flight,

driven away by evil Iron Knights.

But the era is over.

The worlds reunite.

The portal is open,

but not without a fight.

Now, what are you planning on

saying to the council?

- What am I gonna say to them?

- Grandma, no. Don't get her started.

Oh, well. I sure know

what I'd like to say to them.

But you know what?

All I should have to say is...

"You're welcome. "

I mean. I only opened the portal

to save the entire world.

thank me very much!

I should be getting a parade.

but no, no, no.

I get a summons instead.

- You got her started.

- Any idea how to turn her off?

Oh, and you know why

they don't like my idea

of letting the kids from

Halloweentown go to school here?

- Fear and ignorance.

- Fear and ignorance!

That's why. Honestly.

I mean, you try to bring

a little harmony to the universe.

and all you get is...

- Is it time?

- Oh, no, dear. Trust me.

You'll know when it's time.

Huh? What are you talk...

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

It's time.

Uh, hi, your greatness...


Um... Whew.

If I could just say

a few words in my defense...

Please. You have nothing to defend.

We've asked you here to thank you.

- Really?

- Of course. You saved Halloweentown.

- I think it's the least we can do.

- Oh.

Oh, it was nothing.

You're welcome.


I don't suppose

there's a parade involved.

Now, about your proposal to send

a dozen Halloweentown students

to high school in the human world...

I say that if the portal's open.

we might as well use it, right?

Now. Council President Dalloway.

I really must put several of my feet down.

You and this council are determined to

leave us defenseless.

The idea of sending children

into the human world...

They'll have me.

And my mother and my grandmother.

They'll have the entire

Cromwell clan protecting them.

I doubt that even you

are a match for the knights.

Knights. You mean, like, round table.

shields, lances, metal suits knights?

Yes, the Knights of the Iron Dagger.

Their mission in life

was to destroy all things magical.


You people really have to

get out a little more.

See, this is why we need this program -

to show you that the world is different now.

I mean, people have changed.

People are more tolerant now.

I find that highly unlikely.

In fact. I'd bet all the Cromwell magic

that humans have changed.

We can all live in harmony.

We can all coexist.

- She said it!

- Yes!

You all heard it. She said it!

Marnie, if you feel that strongly

to bet the Cromwell magic.

then we have no choice

but to accept your proposal.

You have until midnight on Halloween.

Uh, midnight on Halloween?


Now, what's going on?

Wait, wait! What did I say?

- You bet our magic?

- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

- I thought it was just a figure of speech.

- This is all your fault.

- What? How is this my fault?

- If Marnie had been properly trained.

she wouldn't have ever said

anything like that.

If Marnie had been raised

the way that I wanted her to be raised.

she wouldn't have been sucked through

a portal and put on trial in the first place.


Look, let's just cancel the program.

I mean, nothing can go wrong

if nobody comes to live with us.

Oh, and I was so looking forward

to sharing my room with a werewolf.

No. This is too important.

We have to show people that they

have nothing to be afraid of.

Besides, we have nothing to worry about.

There aren't any knights.

Well, of course not.

It's just a story parents in Halloweentown
