Yes, that was Mrs. Blewitt. She was in the book and also in the Megan Follows version. In this adaptation, they have 3 movies, so they decided to wait for the END of the first movie before Marilla decided to keep Anne.
Did Matthew rescue Anne from drowning in the book?
No, that was created for this movie only.
When will Netflix release their version? Is it already on the market?
Yes, they released it about 10 days ago. May 12th, I think? Netflix is a television series, with 8 hours covering the first third of the book and lots of newly created events.
