Studiocanal premieres the official trailer and poster for The Railway Children Return, arriving in UK cinemas this summer.
The Railway Children Return is a new sequel film described by StudioCanal as "an enchanting, moving and heart-warming adventure for a new generation" return.
Written by BAFTA-winning Danny Brocklehurst, the film is inspired by one of the original 1970 film The Railway Children – one of the most beloved British family films of all time, and is due to arrive with UK cinemas on July 15, 2022.
Watch the trailer here:
The synopsis: 1944 – As life in Britain’s cities becomes increasingly perilous, three evacuee children – Lily (Beau Gadsdon), Pattie (Eden Hamilton) and Ted (Zac Cudby) Watts – are sent by their mother from Salford to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth. There to meet them on the train station platform are Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter, reprising her iconic role in the original film), her daughter, Annie (Sheridan Smith), and grandson Thomas (Austin Haynes), and with their help the evacuees are soon settling into their new life in the countryside. When the children discover injured American soldier Abe (KJ Aikens) hiding out in the railyard at Oakworth Station, they are thrust into a dangerous quest to assist their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home.
Directed by BAFTA-winning Director Morgan Matthews, The Railway Children Return is shot in key locations in Yorkshire from the original film including Haworth, The Brontë Parsonage, Oakworth station and other locations on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.
