Talking mice :)

Here are some screen captures from parts 2 and 3 of The 10th Kingdom (my post on part 1 is here), but first the basic plot ......

The 10th Kingdom tells the story of an enchanted other place where Prince Wendel (Daniel Lapaine), the grandson of Snow White, is changed into a dog by the evil Queen (Dianne Wiest) who has been released from Snow White Memorial Prison by the Troll King (Ed O'Neill). The dog/prince escapes her clutches by passing through a magic mirror to present day Manhattan where he meets a young waitress, Virginia (Kimberly Williams), and her janitor father, Tony (John Larroquette). The Queen sends minions through the mirror after the prince - trolls and also a human/wolf named Wolf (Scott Cohen). Wolf becomes enamored of Virginia and they're all forced through the magic mirror into the enchanted nine kingdoms. They're then on the run from the Queen and the trolls, not to mention the scary Huntsman (Rutger Hauer), searching for a way back home, a way to return the Prince to his human body, and an answer to the question of who the Queen really is. The movie is kind of silly, but ... talking mice! :)

- Tony and Prince Wendel take a boat down the river to find a magic mirror

- Tony, Virginia, Wolf, and Prince Wendel trace the mirror to a small village

- Wolf is imprisoned, soon to be burned at the stake, for being thought to have killed one of the village shepherdess.

- a talking bird (is that a Golden-breasted Starling?) tells Tony and Wolf where the Huntsman has taken Virginia

- the evil Queen in an orchard of poisoned apples

- Virginia, Price Wendel, and Tony look for the dwarves magic mirror workshop in Dragon Mountain

- a fairy warns Virginia and Tony not to eat the singing mushrooms

- the talking mice (who can also read German) tell Tony how to escape the dungeon of Prince Wendel's castle

- they're so cute :)

- at the end of the story everyone converges at Prince Wendel's coronation, including the 200 year old Cinderella (Ann-Margret)
