This Christmas will be extra special as we anticipate Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns” to recapture the magic of the original movie.
Said to be a sequel 64 years in the making, Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns” is pretty much a continuation and not a remake. We see this film picks up more than 20 years after the events of the first movie.
The synopsis for Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns” is as follows:
“Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ stars Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn a routine task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure.
“In this all new sequel, which has a fresh sensibility yet celebrates the spirit of the original, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives after they experience a personal loss. The enigmatic nanny is joined by her friend Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light – and life – to the streets of London.”
When asked about what was the biggest challenge in taking on this role for Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns”, Emily Blunt singled out the dancing element. “I feel that I just try to approach her as I would any other character and not be caught up in the white noise of, ‘Oh my God, you are Mary Poppins‘,” she told Screen Rant.
The 35-year-old English actress added, “I think that has been my main focus, is just to approach her calmly, as I would any other character, how I would play her, with what I have given on the page? I have not watched the (original) since I saw it as a child, cause I… no one is going to outdo Julie Andrews. I think I just want to… this is just going to be my version her. The dancing has been the most daunting prospect for me.”
