Mary Poppins 2

Looks like Disney's making a sequel to Mary Poppins. This is set some 20 years after the original movie and will be adapting the rest of the books in the series. Apparantly there's 8 books in all that were released from 1934 - 1988!

Dammit Disney not every classic movie needs a ****** cash grabbing sequel. Leave Mary Poppins alone.

I read all 8 books. Spoiler alert: Mary Poppins was really kind of a b!tch at times. Very stern. Nowhere near as sweet and bubbly as Julie Andrews.

Also, Disney, WTF.

Aren't the many remake and reboot films the problem today, not sequels?

I don't see why any of them are problems.

Considering that there are several books, I don't see a problem making a sequel. A bit late, but not a problem.

Guy. It's been way more than 20 years since that movie came out.

It's been way more than 20 years, though. Pretty sure the original was released in 1964, making it 51 years later. A cameo, maybe...reprising their original roles, I doubt it. Also...why would they bother with a sequel now? Why not 40 years ago? Even 30 years ago would've been ok.

It's probably something to do with that other Disney movie about the making of the Mary Poppins film.

The original film is based on parts from the first two books anyhow, so it wasn't even a straight transfer to screen. But I do have to wonder... how could a new version live up to the original?

Rob Marshall says that this movie is not a remake of the original film but an "extension".

Quote:
"It is not a new Mary Poppins," Marshall told Vulture last night at the National Arts Awards about his upcoming Disney musical about the iconic nanny. Instead, Marshall's project will be set in 1934, when the original P.L. Travers books were written, and draw from the other books about the iconic nanny. "P.L. Travers wrote eight books all together. They worked from the first book, and we are working from the other books, not touching the iconic brilliance of Mary Poppins. This is an extension. I'm a huge fan of the original, and I'm a very good friend of Julie Andrews, and I hold it in such awe," he said. "There is all this new material it was the Harry Potter of its time and they were never turned into anything further than that adventure."
He also says it's possible that Julie Andrews could have a role in it.

Quote:
"She is a very dear friend, and if she could be involved in some way, it would be very special," he says. "I know she is very happy that we're doing it and, after 50 years, feels that it is time."

A bit late. Don't you think, Disney? You could have made several movies with Julie Andrews back in the day.

Emily Blunt is in talks to play Mary Poppins. I have no problem if this happens. She's a brilliant actress and singer. However, I just this film does not turn out to be a disappointment.
