First look at the latest take on Frances Hodgson Burnett's children's novel.

Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden is one of the most enduring children's novels ever written, so it's no surprise to see a new screen adaptation arrive.

Marc Munden directs this one, which relocates the story to post-WWII England. Child star Dixie Egerickx plays Mary Lennox, an Indian raised child who is sent to England following the death of her parents. There, in her uncle's sprawling estate, she discovers the titular hidden garden.

Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Amir Wilson, Edan Hayhurst and Isis Davis also star.

The Secret Garden is in UK/ROI cinemas April 17th, 2020.

Check out the first trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

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.
