The story is based around the backdrop of the child evacuees from inner cities to the countryside during World War II. The children also meet a soldier who is very far from home in The Railway Children Return.

If the trailer is anything to go by this movie is set to have cinema-goers in floods of tears. It's emotional, heartwarming, and full of history.

The 1970 movie and its sequel are based on the story by E. Nesbit. The charming story is a classic for a reason so why not step back in time and read it before the movie's release in 2022?

The Railway Children Return will land in cinemas in April 2022.

There's no doubt this movie will be a huge hit next year.
