Not all of the hedgehogs used for this movie are the species that live in the wild in England, which have brown underbelly fur. Some are a larger specimen of the African Pygmy variety of hedgehog that are easily found at pet stores in the United States. These are the ones shown with the white faces and bellies and "chocolate chip" colored spines. See more »

An excellent re-visit to a classic movie
12 December 2010 | by freedomsoeSee all my reviews

This is the third time over a few years that I have seen this film, it is always hard to follow an excellent film such as the original. Back to the Secret Garden does an excellent 'job' in my opinion. The storyline flows well.

I have the original DVD of the original film, but for the moment have the sequel above as a TV recording. It is my intention, as with the Railway Children, and other films in our collection to have the original DVD 'set' to add to our growing collection of classic films.

If you have not seen this sequel for fear of it not being as good as the original, then rest assured, if you liked the original, you'll like this version too.
