Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own."
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 has released Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase on Digital 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!
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!

I am a terrible librarian because I have never read a single Nancy Drew book even though Big Sis who is 10 has read several. Even my mother has read Nancy Drew! That didn't stop me from enjoying every minute of this movie though. In this movie we see a new more modern Nancy Drew with a cell phone and she rides a skateboard! The actress that plays Nancy Drew is so likeable and fun that tweens will fall in love with her and want to be just like her. We get a fun mystery that is entertaining for the targeted audience of kids and tweens. Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase made for a fantastic family movie night with my girls!
