Anne of Green Gables was a literary staple of many a girl’s childhood (including mine) and received the pitch-perfect adaptation in the form of the 1985 Canadian two-part miniseries starring Megan Follows as Anne With An “E” Shirley. So it’s hard to imagine that Anne, the Netflix series adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel, will live up to that legacy.
But with the new Anne, played by wide-eyed newcomer Amybeth McNulty, spunkily declaring, “Girls can do anything a boy can do – and more!” in the recently released trailer, it’s clear that the Netflix re-imagining will bring the beloved Canadian orphan into the modern age. Hit the jump to watch the Netflix Anne trailer.
