Hello!! SO SORRY! I completely forgot about your message -.-‘
So cool! Has he watched it yet? And have you read the novelization? If so, you should submit a review on it! I’m very curious on that :)
Thank you very much, I try to keep it interesting xD Well, if you feel inspired you can always send us reasons to love it! Just check the reasons already posted so you don’t send repeated ones :)
If you’re talking about calling it miniseries or movie, there’s no difference. Some fans just prefer to call it a long movie, because of the way they watch(ed) it. I tend to use both terms because I first watched it in two parts on TV and now I have a home-made DVD and watch it in one go-ish.
Now, if you’re asking about the two tape VHS set they released once, then yes. According to wikipedia, approximately two hours of the miniseries was cut out so it could fit on two tapes. “None of the footage dealt with major plot elements, but the sheer amount removed resulted in a significantly different viewing experience. The miniseries was later released as aired on a three disc DVD set”. Basically, they released a shorter version but since it was received with negativeness they re-released it in its original form.
As to the extended version that is sometimes mentioned in the wiki article, I don’t know. I can only suppose they include the making of in the runtime? Don’t know. Perhaps someone else can help out on this detail?
While in NYC, I revisited my favourite childhood story about Manhattan: The 10th Kingdom.
Introverted Sensing (Si): Virginia has total confidence in what is known, traditional, and practical. She is down to earth and trusts that if it works for someone else, it will work for her (“If the dwarves can do it, it must be safe!”). Everything about her life ties back to former, personal experiences (“I don’t trust you at all; you tried to eat my grandmother!”), including her emotional insecurities and tendency to shut people out. Virginia blocks her childhood trauma but when encouraged to reminisce, can remember everything about her mother (“I can still smell your perfume”). She asks lots of questions, in order to get to the bottom of things, but also feels a strong pull toward the traditions of the 9 Kingdoms and her own heritage. Virginia states up front that she isn’t the adventurous type, and spends the entire series trying to get home, to what is comfortable and familiar. She still goes home at the end, back to her normal life, rather than staying in fairy tale land.
Extroverted Thinking (Te): She always takes the most logical and obvious route, whether that is in discerning the truth about other people (“How have you paid for all of this?”) or mountain climbing (“This one slopes up; we’re going up, remember?”). Virginia is decisive, firm in the things she doesn’t want to talk about, and directive when she needs to be; she can take command and order others around. When confronted with a problem, Virginia chooses the most rational option (we broke a mirror; are there others, and if so, where are they?).
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Her kind heart sometimes overrules her head (freeing the birds, taking Prince home, etc). Virginia is highly emotional but doesn’t know how to handle it; she suppresses her feelings and doesn’t like talking about them, but they manifest in other ways (freeing the birds, feeling deep resentment over her mother’s abandonment, passive-aggressive treatment of her dad, and acting on her feelings with Wolf). She gets angry if Wolf presses her to talk about her feelings. She has very firm convictions and feels intensely loyal to her family, but suffers largely in silence.
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): The longer she is in the 9 Kingdoms, the more she starts listening to her intuition and seeing the possibilities in the world around her; Virginia takes her previous experiences with magic and her meeting with Snow White to help her trust in her own destiny, although most of the time she resists anything too fantastical. She has a knack to sense what is going on with her dad, but ultimately feels safest in a predictable environment.
Wolf - ESFP. Spontaneous, reckless, and pleasure-seeking, with an ability to take advantage of any situation and turn it to his advantage (Se). Deeply emotional and driven to act on his feelings, but not always forthcoming about them (Fi). Often talks out loud and is driven to better himself through reaching personal goals (Te). Intuitively knows things and how people are going to react, so he can guide them toward their destiny (Ni).
Tony - ESFJ. Unhealthy one, too — always seeking affirmation, easily hurt and constantly airing his feelings and concerns (Fe). Practical, reliable, and dutiful, but also has a tendency to live in the moment, and relate present experiences to past ones (Si). Is open to new ideas and able to consider many possibilities (Ne) but not great at rationality (poorly developed Ti).
Christine / Evil Queen - ENTJ. Brilliant one, too. Takes immediate action whenever she can and likes to control her environment (Te). Is excellent at reading people and knowing what they are going to do, so she can manipulate them (Ni). Somewhat pleasure-seeking and materialistic (her wardrobes full of clothes; her promiscuity) (Se). Under-developed emotions that are totally self-centered but deeper than she wants to let on (poor Fi).
Prince Wendell - ESTJ. A doer, blunt, tactless, and opinionated, but a tendency to notice the most logical action and encourage others to take it; bored when he’s not accomplishing anything (Te). Somewhat traditional and reliable in his desire to serve in the kingdoms (Si). Senses what’s really going on between people and considers alternate possibilities when problem solving (Ne). Can be quite kind and deeply cares about people, but is uncomfortable expressing that in words (Fi).
