Subject: Disney 'to make Mary Poppins sequel'

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/15/15 at 10:45 am

Disney is making a sequel to its 1964 classic Mary Poppins.

According to Entertainment Weekly (EW), the live-action film will be based on PL Travers' series of books about the no-nonsense but magical nanny.

EW reports the film will be directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago) and will see Mary return to the Banks family in London.

Anne Hathaway is already favourite to land the lead role, according to bookmakers William Hill.

The action will take place about 20 years after the original, which was set in Edwardian London. The new story will be set in the Depression era.

EW reports that Hairspray composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman will write the songs for the new film.

The original film, starring Julie Andrews, was based mainly on the first volume of PL Travers' Poppins series.

The new film will take inspiration from all eight volumes written by Travers, including Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins in the Park and Mary Poppins in the Kitchen.

The casting of Anne Hathaway as Mary Poppins seems like no coincidence, considering her breakthrough role was Princess Mia in The Princess Diaries, also produced by Disney and in which Julie Andrews played the queen.  It's pretty interesting how the story of one Disney movie is now repeating itself as reality for another Disney film.

Just as well they are widening the storyline (taking in all the books).  The film has to be significantly different to the 1960's film or it will be doomed to fail. Mary Poppins is an absolute classic (just like Sound of Music). 

You just don't mess with perfection...

I'll go and see the remake ... but, I'm already expecting less. I can't see anyone being as good as JA and even casting Bert will be difficult. 

I hope I'm pleasantly surprised!  :-\\

Firstly, it will not a remake, it is a sequel continuing the story 20 years on.

And secondly, Anne Hathaway wiil be perfect having previously won an Oscar for acting (and singing) in "Les Miserables".
