Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release STX Films’ The Secret Garden through digital retailers Sept. 22, and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Oct. 6.
The film offers a new take on the 1911 fantasy novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Set in England in 1947, the film follows a young orphan girl (Dixie Egerickx) who, after being sent to live with her uncle (Colin Firth), discovers a magical garden on the grounds of his estate. The cast also includes Julie Walters, Isis Davis and Amir Wilson.
This is the fourth filmed adaptation of the book, following versions in 1919, 1949 and 1993. It was also the subject of BBC television miniseries in 1952, 1960 and 1975, plus a Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie in 1987, and an animated special in 1994.
The new film has been available through premium VOD since Aug. 7.
Extras include the featurettes “Characters,” “Concept to Reality” and “Page to Screen,” plus the film’s trailer.
