THE SECRET GARDEN TEASER TRAILER AND FIRST LOOK IMAGE REVEALED

STUDIOCANAL have today unveiled the teaser trailer and first look still for Heyday Films’ THE SECRET GARDEN, offering a first glimpse of young star Dixie Egerickx as Mary Lennox.



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 they 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 Letter for the King’,His Dark Materials’, 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.  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) is co-producing. STUDIOCANAL is releasing the film in its territories: UK, France, Germany, Australia & New Zealand, and has sold the film Worldwide.

HarperCollins Children’s Books will be releasing a range of movie-tie in books in Spring 2020, featuring a paperback novelisation of the film, a paperback sticker activity book and Mary’s Journal – a gift hardback journal as written by Mary and reflecting the beauty and discovery of the garden. All three titles will publish in March 2020.

STUDIOCANAL WILL RELEASE THE SECRET GARDEN IN APRIL 2020:

France: April 15th
Australia: April 16th
UK: April 17th
