New Mary Poppins Returns with Emily Blunt
Disney has finally unveiled their first sneak preview of Emily Blunt in the classic reprisal of Mary Poppins, one of the most treasured childhood movies of all time. Emily Blunt will play the role made famous by the legendary Dame Julie Andrews about an indomitable British nanny who turns around the lives of well-to-do but naughty siblings in Victorian era London.
Actor Emily Blunt Stars as New Mary Poppins
We’ve seen Emily Blunt play a number of notable roles, including that of the young Queen Victoria, but it remains to be seen if she can live up to the expectations of one of film’s great movie musicals. The original film was created in 1964 and based on the novels by PL Travers, the author who famously refused to sell the rights to Disney for years, before finally caving to enormous harassment and pressure.
‘Mary Poppins Returns’ won’t be with us for a while, as the film premieres on Christmas in two years – December 25, 2018.
