Why should you pick the AoGG DVD set? First because of the quality of the image. Forget your old VHS version, these DVD are of an incredible quality and the pictures from PEI are just amazing. Second, for the behind-the-scenes, the cast and crew interviews and all the comments. I rate both the first and second movie 5 stars, although I do not care too much for the last one. But for the price you pay through this website, the nice box and the additional comments and interviews, I find worth buying the whole collector’s package. And also, I like the idea of owning the full trilogy. Highly recommended to anyone who liked AoGG and highly recommended for anyone who never saw AoGG!

Anne of Green Gables is a remarkable movie (series). Although I never read the books from Lucy Maud Montgomery, I watched the series with my fiancee, whom I got this collector’s series for. This is not my typical type of movie, but I really enjoyed it. The cast chosen to play in this series is noteworthy. And it is hard to believe, after watching the first movie, that Richard Farnsworth (Matthew Cuthbert) was actually a stuntman for 30 years! I got this collector’s dvd set because it came with the extras, which I found very valuable (my fiancee was just crazy over those extras!) as they added another dimension to the tale. I’m happy I got to watch this series and a tip for all guys, I can certify that you will become the luckiest man in the world if you get your gf/fiancee/wife this as a b-day present or Christmas present.

Anne of Green Gables is definitely one of my favorite movie. It stars Megan Follows as Anne Shirley. Megan Follows and all the cast do a wonderful job. The storyline is wonderful (although it does not always follow the storyline from our beloved books from Lucy Maud Montgomery). I decided to buy the Collection, because of the discount you get through this website, it comes up cheaper than buying each DVD individually. The comments and extras are a wonderful addition to this already so great 5 stars movie! Love it!

Both Anne of Green Gables and the Sequel are a favorite in family. My wife, my 2 daughters and even my son have enjoy watching the first movie and its sequel. This movie is greatly entertaining and contains no offensive language or violent action, a proof that a movie can be good without the violence. A movie I highly recommend to everybody, young like old.

If you loved the first movie, Anne of Green Gables, this AoGG dvd sequel will no disappoint you! I am a fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books, including all of the Anne of Green Gables series. My favorite part of the movie is watching Anne falling in love will Gilbert and struggles to admit to herself that she does love him. My DVD was ordered through Anne-of-Green-Gables-DVD.com, which seems to be an affiliate to amazon.com, and both the shipping and the handling were done in an amazing way.

Bonnie 14 July 2009Great quality, fast shipping and amazing presents! I replaced my old fading VCR tapes (yes I still have ’em!) with those DVDs and I just love the DVDs (Anne of Green Gables dvd and the Sequel). I particularly enjoyed the special features, that obviously did not come with the one I recorded from television several years ago. Thumbs up!
