New adaptation of Anne of Green Gables on DVD and Digital in March

10 March 2017

Timeless children’s favourite Anne of Green Gables gets a brand new feature length adaptation starring Martin Sheen, which is set to arrive on DVD courtesy of Second Sight.

Lucy Maud Montgomery’s most beloved and enduring book Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies and now based on this all-time classic, a heart-warming new film arrives on DVD, digital and on-demand on 20 March 2017. It will also be shown on ITV.

When ageing couple Matthew (Martin Sheen – The Departed, Apocalypse Now) and Marilla Cuthbert (Sara Botsford – The Lizzie Borden Chronicles) offer to take in an orphan boy to help on their farm, they are mistakenly sent chatty, bookish redhead Anne Shirley (Ella Ballentine – Standoff). They reluctantly agree that she can stay and soon the loveable, feisty Anne turns their lives upside down with her mischievous ways, day-dreaming and fearlessness – and her knack for charming everyone she meets.
