  About Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase

Uncover the Mystery When Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase
Arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on
Digital March 26, 2019 and on
Blu-ray™ Combo Pack & DVD on April 2, 2019


Based on the Bestselling Book!

The iconic mystery solving teenager from the classic Nancy Drew books is back with an all-new feature length film that will keep you guessing until the very end! Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase on Digital starting March 26, 2019 and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack & DVD on April 2, 2019. Executive Produced by Ellen DeGeneres, the film stars Sophia Lillis (IT and “Sharp Objects”), Sam Trammell (“True Blood” and “This is Us”), and Linda Lavin (“The Good Wife” and“Alice”) and follows Nancy Drew in her new town, making new friends and on a mission to solve the case! The film carries a suggested retail price of $19.99 for the Digital, $19.98 for the DVD and $28.98 for the Blu-ray Combo Pack.

After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding lightbulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case!



My Thoughts on Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase Movie

The movie updates Nancy Drew.  If you read the books--and loved the old Nancy Drew--the girl portrayed on film may not be the girl you hold in your childhood memories!  The movie does update Nancy's world--and her knack for finding herself in troublesome situations.  I enjoyed the movie--but, found myself battling my feelings toward Nancy and some of her actions and inerractions that didn't mesh with my mind's image of her from the stories I read long ago.  

Would I recommend Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase movie?  While I found myself comparing the movie Nancy to her book portrayal--I still really enjoyed the movie.  I think this was a great family movie for families with older tweens or younger teens.  The mystery is rather simple and the movie certainly updates Mom and Grandma's Nancy Drew to a new one to which current tweens and teens may relate as the characters encounter friendships, social circles and bullying while solving the mystery.    I would recommend it to families with preteens or younger teens who enjoy a light, family friendly mystery with some real world life mixed in.
