“One of my favorite relationships in the film is between Nancy Drew and Aunt Flora,” Lillis states in a press release. “They both love adventure and mystery, they’re both independent, and they both know how to deal with obstacles and work through them. I think they see a lot of themselves in each other, and it’s a very endearing relationship.”

“The relationship between Flora and Nancy develops quickly because it’s so honest and connective – they see so much of each other in one another – and that’s how it‘s been working with Sophia,” Lavin stated in the same relese. “Sophia couldn’t be more perfect as Nancy. She has such spunk and savvy. That presence, that smile, the realness of her. She’s present and alive in the moment. She‘s bright and comfortable, and full of promise. It’s been wonderful working with Sophia.
