Nanny McPhee 2 Reunites Potter Co-Stars

By Hanako M. Ricks

HollywoodNews.com: Nanny McPhee Returns to the big screen on August 20 and she’s bringing some backup from Hogwarts with her! Academy Award winning actress Emma Thompson, who both wrote the screenplay and stars as the titular character, returns to teach discipline to another set of naughty children a set of five “very important lessons”, in her own, magical way. This story is about a mother (Maggie Gyllenhaal) who is trying to take care of her children while her husband (Ewan McGregor) is away at war, when her family expands to include two very spoiled cousins.

The film also stars Thompson’s Harry Potter co-stars Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) as Lord Gray; Maggie Smith (Professor McGonagall) as Mrs. Docherty; and Rhys Ifans (Xenophilius Lovegood) as Uncle Phil. The first nanny McPhee movie also starred Imelda Staunton, who plays the nastily pink Delores Umbridge in the Harry Potter series.

At one point during negotiations for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, it had been reported that Thompson would not return to her beloved role as Professor Sybil Trelawney because filming would have conflicted with that of Nanny McPhee Returns, which as star and screenwriter held more of an emotional investment for her. Luckily for fans of both franchises, Thompson confirmed in March that she did indeed return for Deathly Hallows.

The Nanny McPhee movies are based on the “Nurse Matilda” series of books by Christianna Brand.
