D23 2017: New Motion Poster For MARY POPPINS RETURNS


Emily Blunt is Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel, #MaryPoppinsReturns.

Nearly on par with the "Infinity War" enthusiasm was the response to the footage for the Mary Poppins sequel "Mary Poppins Returns", a colorful and topsy-turvy new installment in the world of P.L. Travers from director Rob Marshall.

The story takes place 20 years after the original and also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the lamplighter, Meryl Streep as Mary's unusual cousin Topsy, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Guy Ritchie will direct the film, starring relative newcomer Mena Massoud as the scrappy street urchin Aladdin, while "Power Rangers'" Naomi Scott will take on the role of Jasmine, the studio announced Saturday.

"I watched about 15 minutes of the original and then just stopped watching it", Blunt said.

Major roads were damaged and several bridges, including a railway overbridge, were washed away in the floods. Several areas in Kalahandi district were also severely affected by the floods caused by incessant rains.

Blunt is taking on a role originally played by Julie Andrews in the original "Mary Poppins", and those are some big shoes to fill. She's just unbelievable. There will never be anyone else like her.

"I had to do my own version of her", Blunt said.

But in that crowd at the D23 Expo - think of it as the Disney cousin to Comic-Con - one little woman stood head and shoulders above the lot of them: a British nanny named Mary Poppins.

"We both and the entire company and the creative time feel very protective of the original film because we love it so much", Marshall said.

"Finn is about to have a formidable opponent", Boyega added, as he sauntered over to Christie to size her up.

Marshall said he had enormous respect for the original film and this is why his version has been careful about taking the legacy forward.

Winfrey said she had not read the book when DuVernay approached her about playing Mrs.

"That's that and will always be that. This is living in that world with a foot in the past and a foot in the future and telling that story".

The trailer was, I have to say, impressive: it looked like they started filming the day after the original movie finished.
