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 »

Follow "this" path for further inspiration
17 April 2002 | by cjnbSee all my reviews

Michael Tuchner's follow-up to The Secret Garden is a far less inspired outing than it's 1993 predecessor, but never the less still passes muster thanks to some cutesy performances and even cuter scenarios, courtesy cast and filmmaker. As with most low-key sequels, Back to the Secret Garden follows the path of a new bunch of characters, all, of course, experiencing the joy of the titular garden. Lizzie, orphaned American lass, finds herself laying her bed in the same manor where the events of the first film occurred. Miss Sowerby (Joan Plowright), is the be all and end all of the said garden, but under her watchful eye, Lizzie discovers the said place, a place of faith, courage and determination. Back to The Secret Garden, like the first film, has some lovely messages in there for the littlies. While at the same time, giving Mum's a break from that well worn VHS of the original to put something else in the machine for a while. Follow this path for further inspiration.
