The New Secret Garden Movie Is Out On Friday

We are all in need of some nostalgia and fantasy right now.

Both new and old fans of the popular novel The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson will be happy to know a new film adaptation is coming out on Friday, which may be just the thing.

Directed by Marc Munden, it stars Dixie Egerickx as Mary Lennox, Colin Firth as Lord Archibald Craven and Dame Julie Waters as Mrs. Medlock.

The fantasy tale is set in 1947 England and follows a young orphan who is sent to live with her uncle, only to discover a magical garden at his estate.

This marks the second time Colin Firth has acted in a film adaptation of The Secret Garden, the other having been released more than 33 years ago in a made for television adaptation produced by the American CBS network.

Filming took place around Yorkshire whilst interior shots were captured at the captivating Knebworth House in Hertfordshire. The cast and crew also filmed at Woodhall Park and on the grounds of Heath Mount School where one of the 500-year-old oak trees within the historic parkland will be featured in the new film.

Numerous film and television adaptations have been made inspired by the book since its publication, entertaining several generations. The first filmed version was made in 1919!

A version in which the garden scenes were filmed Technicolour arrived in 1949. The most recent film adaptation before the 2020 iteration was released in 1993 and co-starred Dame Maggie Smith as Mrs Medlock.

Hodgson's tale has even spread beyond film and television and onto the stage. A play by Jessica Swale adapted from the novel was performed at Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre in Chester in 2014.

The film was originally meant to be released in April this year but like dozens of films it was pushed back by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. We now know for sure when we will have the chance to be completely engrossed in the magical garden world.

The Secret Garden will be out in cinemas on Friday and will also be available on Sky Cinema channels.
