The rumors are true! The rumors are true!!! The 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins will be getting a sequel tittled Mary Poppins Returns which will be premiering. December 25, 2018.
Emily Blunt (Into The Woods) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, In The Heights) will be starting in the film as Rob Marshall (director of Into The Woods) will be taking a seat in the directors chair. David Magee (Life Of Pi) will be working on the screenplay which of course will be based on the stories of Mary Poppins by P.L Travers.
The story is set to take place in London during the depression era and will follow the not so little Jane and Michael Banks along with Michael’s three children who happen to get a visit from their old nanny when the family has a personal loss. I mean who better to bring some magic and joy into their lives than miss Mary Poppins.
I am actually really excited about what adventures this film will bring. Although it is quite a classic and I think no one could play Mary Poppins better than Julie Andrews and of course no one can play a better sidekick than Dick Van Dyke, I think Disney will not steer us wrong and make another magical movie for younger generations to enjoy! Let me know what feelings you have about this film??
