Go Back to Green Gables with All New Trailer for “Anne” – Coming to Netflix May 12th
Begin your journey back to Green Gables with the official trailer and key art for Anne, premiering on Netflix on May 12th.
The reimagining of the beloved novel, “Anne of Green Gables,” stars Amybeth McNulty (“Anne Shirley Cuthbert”), Geraldine James (“Marilla Cuthbert”) and R.H. Thomson (“Matthew Cuthbert”) and comes from Moira Walley-Beckett (“Breaking Bad,” “Flesh and Bone”).
Anne is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and many challenges, fights for love and acceptance and her place in the world. Set in Prince Edward Island in the late 1890s, the series centers on Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphaned girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother. Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination. Anne’s adventures will reflect timeless and topical issues including themes of identity, feminism, bullying and prejudice.
Showrunner Moira Walley-Beckett (“Breaking Bad,” “Flesh and Bone‘) and Miranda de Pencier (“Thanks For Sharing,” “Beginners”) are executive producers on the series. Susan Murdoch is a producer. Anne is a Northwood Entertainment production for CBC and Netflix, and is available in the United States on Netflix on May 12, 2017.
