Based on the popular comic strip, Annie tells the extraordinary story of a little orphan who ends up in the lap of luxury with billionaire Benjamin Stacks, a variation of Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, spunky Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis “Beasts of the Southern Wild”) believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Stacks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees. Stacks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the reward. The film is based on the Broadway musical stage play “Annie,” book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and on the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip.
