First look at The Secret Garden

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic novel The Secret Garden is getting a new movie adaptation, starring Dixie Egerickx as Mary Lennox, the young orphaned girl sent to live with her uncle (Colin Firth) at his remote country estate in the Yorkshire moors.

It’s there that she meets her cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst), and together they discover a secret garden…

Also starring Julie Walters and Amir Wilson, this version of the book sets the story in 1947 in the aftermath of World War II (the original book was set at the start of the 20th century) and features a script from Jack Thorne (Harry Potter And The Cursed Child), and Paddington writers David Heyman and Rosie Alison, and is set for release in April 2020.

Here’s the first trailer:
