Since 1930, the iconic mystery-solving teenager, Nancy Drew, has been cracking some of the most mysterious cases. And now from the classic Nancy Drew books, she’s back with an all new feature length film that will keep you guessing until the very end. From Warner Bros., Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Red 56, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is hitting theaters today (March 15). Before you head off to get your movie tickets, I’ve got a fun Nancy Drew Swag Pack Giveaway for you!

Nancy Drew has been the #1 female heroine for young girls since the 1930’s. Many female leaders, including Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and Hilary Clinton (who talks about Nancy Drew in her memoir) cite her as a huge influence. Over 80 million books have been sold and the books have even been translated in over 45 languages. There have also been other movies, a TV series and Nancy Drew video games. Generation after generation Nancy Drew is re-introduced to new fans and I have a feeling this movie is going to make for the perfect modern day Nancy Drew!
After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his 16-year-old daughter, Nancy, in River Heights. Nancy is asked by Flora to help solve the ghostly activity at her home, the Twin Elms mansion. Can Nancy help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding light bulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner, Malcolm Colfax, is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends, George and Bess, along with local “mean girl,” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case!
