Discover Adventure in The Secret Garden Trailer

-

StudioCanal has released the new trailer for The Secret Garden, which is coming to North American theaters on April 17, 2020. STXfilms will distribute The Secret Garden in the U.S. and Canada.

The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx, Genius, The Little Stranger and A Royal Winter), a prickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents.

When her parents suddenly die, she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Academy Award and BAFTA-winner Colin Firth – A Single Man, The King’s Speech, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Bridget Jones’s Baby) on his remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors.

There, she begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after meeting her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst – Genius, There She Goes), who has been shut away in a wing of the house.

Together, these two damaged, slightly misfit children heal each other through their discovery of a wondrous secret garden, lost in the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor. A magical place of adventure that will change their lives forever.

Academy Award nominated and BAFTA-winning Julie Walters (Paddington 1 & 2, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool) plays Mrs. Medlock, the head housekeeper at Misselthwaite, with Amir Wilson (The Kid Who Would Be King) joining the stellar cast as Dickon, alongside Isis Davis (Guilt, Electric Dreams) as Martha.

The Secret Garden is a new take on the classic children’s novel of the same name written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, brought forward to a new time period in 1947 England, on the eve of Partition in India, and in the aftermath of WW2 in Britain.

The book is officially described as follows: “After losing her parents, young Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle’s gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. She is lonely and has no one to play with, but one day she learns of a secret garden somewhere in the grounds that no one is allowed to enter. Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed – and a gust of magic leads her to the hidden door. Slowly she turns the key and enters a world she could never have imagined.”

BAFTA-winning Marc Munden (National Treasure, Utopia) directs this new adaptation, from a screenplay by multiple award-winning Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child). 

David Heyman (Harry Potter franchise, Paddington 1 & 2) and Rosie Alison (Paddington 1 & 2) are producing and Jane Robertson (The Danish Girl, Bridget Jones’s Baby) will co-produce.
