(see also Anne of Green Gables (disambiguation))

L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is a Canadian television film based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel of the same name. It first aired on YTV on February 15, 2016 and starred Ella Ballentine, Martin Sheen and Sara Botsford. Montgomery's granddaughter, Kate Macdonald Butler, was one of the film's executive producers.
