Your fave female detective is back at it again. The recently-released Nancy Drew movie, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, takes the original 1939 story by Carolyn Keene and updates it for a modern YA audience.
Chances are you read your fair share of Nancy Drew novels as a child. And it’s also just as likely that your mom—and possibly grandmother—did the same. Now the daring Drew is ready to meet your own kiddo in this old-but-new story.
Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase follows the fearless female lead as she moves to the oh-so-small and not-so-interesting fictional town River Heights. The 2019 adaptation, which debuted in theaters on Mar. 15, stars a red-headed Sophia Lillis (who you may remember from the super-scary IT) as Drew.
The millennial-ized character still retains her feisty nature, with plenty of intellect, independence and so much more.
If you haven’t seen the new flick, or if you have and you just want more, check out this behind-the-scenes look at Twin Elms, on which the film’s central spookiness focuses. In the YouTube clip, Lillis takes us all on a sneak peek tour of the house—and it totally doesn’t disappoint.
