''Annie: A Royal Adventure!'' is a MadeForTVMovie that premiered on Creator/{{ABC}} in 1995. It is presumably a sequel to the 1982 film ''[[{{Film/Annie 1982}} Annie]]'' (at least that's how Website/{{IMDb}} recognizes it), but it has [[TheOtherDarrin none of the same cast]] and is not a musical (unless you count a single reprise of "Tomorrow" at the end). The film has a SequelGoesForeign plot in which Annie, Warbucks, and company travel to England with Creator/JoanCollins playing a RichBitch villainess. Features [[Franchise/StarWars Emperor Palpatine]] as an AbsentMindedProfessor, but [[SequelNonEntity Grace Farrell neither appears nor is mentioned]].

!!This film provides examples of:

* AppliedPhlebotinum: Eonite. It's originally from [[ComicStrip/LittleOrphanAnnie the comic strip]], as is its inventor Professor Eli Eon.
* AristocratsAreEvil: Lady Hogbottom, played by Joan Collins.
* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: Rupert and Murphy are on the deck of an ocean liner but they need to hide, so they slip through a conveniently open door into a darkened room. Rupert turns on the light and they realise that they're in the ship's meat locker, hung with sides of beef. Because the meat locker of an ocean liner is accessible through an unlocked door which leads onto the promenade deck.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Upon arriving in Britain, Warbucks meets with UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill, who is identified as the Prime Minister. Churchill did not become Prime Minister until 1940, yet the setting is clearly pre-UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Furthermore, the first movie was set in 1933 and Annie was ten then, so if it's 1940 then she should be seventeen by now, but she's obviously not.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* FortuneTeller: Annie meets one near the beginning of the movie, who makes some [[{{Foreshadowing}} ominous predictions]]. It seems a little surprising at first that Warbucks takes these predictions seriously... but then you remember this is the same universe where Punjab can makes things float in midair and such. Either that or he's just humoring Annie.
* GenreShift: Not a musical and solidly in the SnoopingLittleKid genre.
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Inverted:
-->'''Warbucks''': Yes, my advice would be, you reach a lot of people by radio, but television is the future.
* KidnappedScientist: Professor Eon, in the last act.
* LittleStowaway: Annie and Hannah smuggle Molly along on their voyage to England. Miss Hannigan finds out and runs after the ship as it departs, yelling "Stowaway! Stowaway!" Annie manages to convince Warbucks that she's saying "Stay awhile! Stay awhile!"
* MadeForTVMovie
* OperaGloves: Lady Hogbottom wears elbow-length (or even longer) gloves in almost every scene she appears in.
* RememberTheNewGuy: You remember Annie's best friend Hannah from the first movie, right? Hannah even "remembers" being in Miss Hannigan's orphanage with Annie, so she can't be someone Annie met later.
* SequelEscalation: The original movie was about Annie being adopted by Warbucks. In this movie, they save England from a ''Film/JamesBond'' villain-type plot.
* SequelGoesForeign: Annie goes to England!
* SequelNonEntity: Grace is gone, [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome with no explanation]]. Also, all the other orphans except for Molly. Rooster and Lily are presumably still rotting in jail, so they have an excuse for not being mentioned.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Lady Hogbottom
* TemptingFate:
**
--->'''Annie''': ''[doing homework on castles]'' Dungeons and secret passageways. Why do we have to study this anyway? Who puts people in dungeons anymore?
** Later, while imprisoned in said dungeon:
--->'''Annie''': I'm sure there are no snakes.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Rupert and Murphy
* UnexpectedSuccessor: Lady Hogbottom wants to blow up Buckingham Palace in order to become this trope.
