The film remake of Swallows and Amazons will be in cinemas from 19 August 2016.

Filmed on location in the Lake District, Yorkshire and Scotland, the heart-warming adventure is based on the novel by Arthur Ransome.

Swallows and Amazons tells the story of the Walker children, whose summer holiday in the Lake District sees them sailing out on their own to a local island, only to find themselves in competition with a rival group of children who call themselves the Amazons and ultimately an adventure far bigger than they could have imagined.

The two Blackett sisters are played by Seren Hawkes as Nancy, and Hannah Jayne Thorp as Peggy.

The film stars Rafe Spall as Captain Flint, Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie and Boardwalk Empire’s Kelly Macdonald as Mrs Blackett and Mrs Walker respectively, with Jessica Hynes and Harry Enfield as farmers Mr and Mrs Jackson.
