StudioCanal has released a teaser trailer for The Secret Garden, a new adaptation of author Frances Hodgson Burnett‘s classic 1911 novel of the same name.
The movie comes from Harry Potter, Paddington, and Gravity producer David Heyman and his Heyday Films. Colin Firth, Dixie Egerickx, Edan Hayhurst, Maeve Dermody, Jemma Powell, Amir Wilson, Sonia Goswami, and Julie Walters star in the adaptation.
You can find the trailer for The Secret Garden along with a synopsis below.
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.
The adaptation is directed by Marc Munden, whose previous credits include The Devil’s Whore, The Crimson Petal and the White, Black Sails, and Utopia. The screenplay was written by Jack Thorne (His Dark Materials, Wonder).
The story has been adapted numerous times in the past, including feature films in 1919, 1949, and 1993, as well as television series and theatre productions.
The Secret Garden is set to first be released in the spring of 2020.
