The Secret Of Moonacre: A Little Fantasy While You Wait For Harry Potter

This is the international trailer for "The Secret Of Moonacre", arriving in theaters on February 6, 2009.  It looks like all kinds of fantastic things happen in this one and was made by the team that created "Bridge To Terabithia".

IMDB.Com has the following plot summary for the film:

When 13 year old Maria Merryweather's father dies, leaving her orphaned and homeless, she is forced to leave her luxurious London life to go and live with Sir Benjamin, an eccentric uncle she didn't know she had, at the mysterious Moonacre Manor. Soon Maria finds herself in a crumbling moonlit world torn apart by the hatred of an ancient feud with the dark and sinister De Noir family. Maria discovers that she is the last Moon Princess and, guided by an unlikely mix of allies, she must overcome her family's pride in order to unearth the secrets of the past before the 5000th moon rises and Moonacre disappears into the sea forever.

It should keep fans of this genre happy until next July.  Watch the trailer and decide for yourself.  Incidentally, J.K. Rowling, creator of Harry Potter has been quoted as saying that "The Little White Horse", upon which this movie was created, is her favorite children's book.  See that!  There's a connection right there.
