Ginger and Nuts have teamed up with Fabulous Films to give you a chance to WIN a DVD copy of the iconic Nanny McPhee, valued at £14.99! Mark your calendars with great anticipation, as this extraordinary film will be released on August 28, 2023.


Prepare to be enchanted by this dark and brilliantly witty fable, featuring the powerhouse talents of Oscar-winners Emma Thompson (think Harry Potter, Love Actually, and Matilda) and Colin Firth (hello, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Girl With A Pearl Earring). Nanny McPhee is an absolute children’s adventure masterpiece that’ll leave you craving more.

Emma Thompson's Magical Journey: From Nanny McPhee to Matilda, she reigns supreme on stage and screen!

Did you know that Emma Thompson herself took the reins and penned the screenplay for Nanny McPhee? The storyline originated from Christianna Brand’s book, Nurse Matilda, which first captivated readers in 1964. Talk about dedication – it took Thompson a solid 9 years to craft this cinematic gem. And boy, did it pay off! Nanny McPhee raked in a jaw-dropping $122 million in global ticket sales in 2005, leaving folks all over the world in awe.

But the adventure doesn’t end there! Emma Thompson has been weaving her magic behind the scenes, adapting Nanny McPhee into an extraordinary stage musical since 2018. Famed Scottish singer-songwriter Gary Clark (whom you might know from Sing Street) has lent his genius to compose the music. You may remember him as the frontman of the fantastic pop band Danny Wilson, who rocked the charts with their smash hit “Mary’s Prayer” in 1988. While the show, directed by Thompson herself, was rumoured to debut in the West End this year, everything’s still up in the air. Thompson teasingly describes the musical’s enchanting tunes as a tantalizing mashup of Tiger Lillies and Tom Waits’s captivating ‘Swordfishtrombones.’

Speaking of Emma Thompson’s remarkable talent, did you know she turned up the wickedness as the terrifying Miss Trunchbull in Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical, currently streaming on Netflix? Getting her young co-stars to loathe her proved a bit challenging – they figured she was simply Nanny McFreaking McPhee in disguise!

And trust us; these rascals have successfully sent packing a mind-boggling seventeen previous nannies! But with Nanny McPhee at the helm, their wicked behaviour quickly leads to jaw-dropping consequences fuelled by her extraordinary powers.
