This action-packed film tells the story of Anne Shirley, a young orphan who is adopted and sent to live in the pastoral world of Green Gables. Anne’s wild imagination and storytelling antics often land her in big trouble, but she learns many important life lessons along the way — and you will too!

3) Explore the great outdoors: Skating, sledding, skiing, snowboarding — the possibilities are endless this time of year. So get out and enjoy a little fresh air and some healthy exercise! Then head inside to warm up with some hot cocoa and a cozy quilt. We recommend these adorable fleece blankets from the Shop at Sullivan store.

Giving Thanks

By | Blog | No Comments

anne the animated series episode 9 idle chatter anne dianaWith all the excitement of Black Friday, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important this time of year, and we make forget to give thanks for our blessings.

That’s why we’re so fond of Anne Shirley. The red-headed heroine is constantly reminding us to slow down and see the beauty of everyday life. And so, this Thanksgiving weekend, we’ve chosen to reflect on why we’re oh-so-thankful for the one and only Anne with an “e”:

1) She’s a great friend. Anne has always dreamed of one day finding her bosom friend. When she moves to Avonlea and meets Diana Barry, she knows almost immediately that the two are destined to become kindred spirits. Throughout the series, Anne and Diana stick together through thick and thin, proving that true friendship lasts a lifetime.

2) She’s not afraid to be who she is. With a boisterous personality and flaming red hair, Anne doesn’t always fit in. But dryadthat doesn’t stop her from remaining unabashedly true to herself. She may slip up every now and then — like when she tries to change the colour of her famous fire-engine-red hair — but she always manages to find her way back to a place of self-acceptance.

3) She has a wild imagination. Anne’s imagination may get her into trouble sometimes, but more often than not it leads her on amazing adventures. With the help of a mystical wood nymph named Dryad, Anne travels to the depths of her imagination to explore valuable secrets and life lessons.

anne journey to green gables dvd coverIf you’re a die-hard fan of Anne of Green Gables, chances are you’ve watched the full animated series more than a few times. If that’s the case, you’re probably in need of some fresh content. Enter: Journey to Green Gables.

This full-length, family-friendly film boasts all the same fun and adventure of the television program. Plus, it features some very familiar voices — including Wind at My Back’s Kathryn Greenwood, Road to Avonlea’s Rachel Lynde, and Al Mukadam of the original Anne: The Animated Series. 

Check out the plot synopsis below to find out why Anne: Journey to Green Gables is the perfect addition to any Sullivan Entertainment fan’s collection:

“Imaginative Anne Shirley is sent to Grout Orphanage owned by the sinister Madame Poubelle, where Anne’s wild imagination and storytelling antics land her in big trouble. Luckily she escapes to the pastoral world of Green Gables, where she is adopted by elderly couple Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. Finding friends and acceptance for the first time in her life, all of Anne’s dreams come true. However, the evil Poubelle is determined to have Anne in her clutches. A vanishing heirloom, blundered disguises and a hot air balloon ride provide a climax to a charming new version of this traditional classic.”
