Plot
At the edge of the mortal world lies a mystical vortex which leads to the Nine Kingdoms, a fantastic land where fairy tales are reinvented... and not with happily-ever-after results! An evil queen (Dianne Wiest) has just doomed Prince Wendell (Daniel Lapaine) to life as a dog. His quest to recapture the throne leads him through a portal to the mythical Tenth Kingdom... Central Park! With the help of ordinary mortals Virginia (Kimberly Williams) and Tone (John Larroquette), they battle evil in a parallel universe of vile trolls, goblins and every fairy tale character imaginable. Stunning visual effects and a stellar cast, including Scott Cohen, Rutger Hauer, Camryn Manheim and Ed O'Neill dominate this epic adventure that will enchant audiences of all ages.
