Nanny McPhee Returns Trailer Online

I have to admit, the first Nanny McPhee movie actually surprised me a lot with its charm and dare I say.. magic.

So when I heard they were doing a sequel, I was at least interested. Check out the Trailer:

The hard part about sequelling is that you have to live up to the first.

The first film had magic but it was more subtle. And there was emotional levels for all ages as the father had his story, and the kids had theirs – and each story impacted the other. This looks like its geared more towards the kids than the first ever was, and the “magic” effects have taken a big step up in scope.

The theme of the character is still the same. She comes when she is needed and the rule is that “When you don’t want her, but need her she will be there. When you want her, but no longer need her she must go” Its a tough lesson for kids to wrap their heads around, but eventually they come to understand the bittersweet of learning to get along.

I am looking forward to it.

  1. Funny enough I watched this yesterday (the whole film not the trailer) with the wife and kids. We all thought it was excellent. Recommend it as a good family film

  2. This was called Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang here in the UK. I didn’t catch the film but reviews where positive, with a large number of critics saying the film was better than the original.

  3. I agree with you about the levels of the first one. What I’m thinking is that this trailer is marketing this as a family movie about magic. The levels of storytelling will probably come through in the movie itself, and not just the trailer. Maggie Gyllenhaal may be an incredible actress, but she’s not necessarily a sure thing when it comes to getting people in the theater. Emma Thompson and some magic effects might just be the ticket.

    Hence the trailer.
