Released in 2005, the original Nanny McPhee was a strong successor to Mary Poppins in every way. Adapted from the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand, the film pitted seven mischievous tykes against an ugly woman with a snaggle tooth, warts and an oversized nose, who had a few tricks up her sleeve when it came to childcare. Susanna White’s colourful sequel casts an even more bewitching spell, introducing the mysterious nanny to a family in crisis in wartime Britain.

Well, that’s a rather interesting change of direction. Earlier in the year we reported that Emma Thompson was writing a re-make of the Audrey Hetburn classic My Fair Lady, but back then the front runner for the main role was Keira Knightley. It seems like since then it’s been all change, and now the lucky lady is non other than Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan. And the world can let out a sigh of relief.
