The first official trailer of the Ellen DeGeneres-produced movie based on the Nancy Drew books is here!
In the trailer first show on “The Ellen Show”, “Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase” is based on the book of the same title with some noticeable differences — including the teen sleuth on a skateboard.
Sophia Lillis, soon to be 16, stars as Nancy Drew, who moves to a new town she finds boring — until her first mystery comes up, that is.
Lillis charms as a sweet but rebellious teenager who just wants to make a difference, and the character makes the perfect role model for youth, proving that being smart and funny is cool.
Fans expressed their excitement on Twitter, where one person wrote, “Just saw the trailer for Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase and oh. My. Gosh.”
Another added, “Oh. My. Goddddddddd. Nancy Drew! And she is played by Sophia Lillis (IT / Sharp Objects)! *faints*”
The hit books first released in the 1930s have been adapted to film and television many times, including “Girl Detective”, “The Nancy Drew Diaries”, and “Nancy Drew” starring Emma Roberts.
