The Magic Faraway Tree

Simon Farnaby (Wonka, Paddington 2) has adapted Enid Blyton's best-selling children's classic The Magic Faraway Tree which will be directed by Ben Gregor (BritanniaCuckoo, Black Ops). The story follows children Fran, Beth and Joe on a series of adventures into fantastical worlds at the top of a magical tree in an enchanted forest. Filled with eccentric, beloved characters like Moonface, Silky, Dame Washalot and Saucepan Man, the story has delighted children and adults alike for decades. 

The film, currently in development, is a co-production between Neal Street Productions and Elysian Film Group, produced by Pippa Harris, Nicolas Brown and Danny Perkins and will be fully financed by Ashland Hill Media Finance.
