Emily Blunt is Playing Mary Poppins!

I LOVE Mary Poppins. When I heard Emily Blunt was playing Mary Poppins I was so excited. I can't wait for it to come out in theaters December 25, 2018! 

Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, MARY POPPINS RETURNS also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep.

The film, which introduces three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson, also features Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury. The film is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep). The film is produced by Marshall, John DeLuca and Marc Platt. The screenplay is by David Magee based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing all new songs and Shaiman composing an original score.

  4. I was wondering whst film eould be the next remake from my childhood. I'm not sure if so many remakes are occuring due to their popularity then and now, or if Hollywood ran out of ideas. Mary Poppins is one of my faves. A classic. My children watched it and loved it. So, it wasn't as if it were only enjoyed by my generation. I will say that technology IS helping to create some fabulous effects...and make the films enjoyable. It will be on my MUST SEE list. For a movir buff--this blog gave me info I was not aware of. Love that!!!
