When I was growing up I loved Nancy Drew and over the years I continued to love the character and the many characters that she inspired. This year Nancy Drew has been getting some buzz again and on March 15th she’ll be on the big screen with the new feature film Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. Co-produced by Ellen DeGeneres and starring Sophia Lilles, known for her roles in It and Sharp Objects.
In this new take on the teen detective, 16 year old Nancy moves to River Heights with her father, Carson, after the death of her mother. Used to the excitement of Chicago, she is looking for excitement and a way to make a difference. The perfect opportunity lands in her lap when she’s asked to investigate the strange activity at Twin Elms Mansion. Her iconic friends, George and Bess, as well as a new face, Helen, join Nancy in her search for answers.
Nancy Drew is such an iconic character and has been the #1 female heroine for young girls since the 1930s. This film will bring the character to a new generation and will be a treat for old and new fans alike. You can check out Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase in theaters on March 15th.
