Disney has moved up the film's release date to December 19. Now the film will be opening prior to Aquaman, Bumblebee, Alita: Battle Angel, Welcome to Marwen and Holmes & Watson. It's very possible that one or two of those other films will now move to Christmas week.

Disney has released a new photo. It definitely reminds me of "Step in Time".

I really wish Alita came out in July like it was originally going to or at least a august release.

A new trailer has been released. They really seem to be capturing the spirit of the original film, which is timeless.

The first official reveal of the film was shown at the NATO Conference and it's gotten RAVE reviews.

Quote:
“Director Rob Marshall has created a masterpiece in updating one of the most beloved stories of all time,” said one very high up executive of a large theatre chain. “It is an uplifting story and visually lush film, with happy songs, joyous choreography and some just dazzling animated scenes. In Mary Poppins Returns, once again Disney has made a family movie for the ages.”

Another exec raved: “It is [in all caps] MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE YEAR. I grew up with Mary Poppins and love everything about the original, and the sequel absolutely met my high expectations. Loved!”

Another major name in exhibition said: “Mary Poppins Returns brings back all the wonder and magic of the original film while adding new layers in both music, songs and stunning visuals. The film is sure to be a holiday favorite, so hats off to Rob Marshall.”

Of course it's impossible to top a masterpiece like the original, but I thought this film was pretty darn good. It really made me feel like a kid again and my mom felt the exact same way when she saw it with me. The film is lively and the animated scenes that combined with the live-action ones were top notch. Emily Blunt had gigantic shoes to fill, but I thought she was marvelous. Lin-Manuel Miranda was absolutely perfect in his part. The special appearances from Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury were simply wonderful. Meryl Streep also played an interesting character. The songs are nice but not amazing. I did think that the choreography was superb. Overall, this is huge treat to watch on the big screen.

Here is a brief clip of the song "A Cover is not the Book". I'm hoping to see the film again in the coming weeks.

I wish I could have wept during the bowl scene.

It was definitely the best part of the movie, especially given how much technology has changed. The actors could truly interact with the animated characters, who had more capability for dimensional range than in the original.


And then there was the bit when one of the kids swapped hats with the dog guy.


And the way the "live action" sets were blended with the animated, whereas the original had the actors on live action props that couldn't be blended at the time.


I could keep gushing, but I'd get less and less coherent. The best I could do for now is "ART PRETTY."

I saw it and I liked it! Probably the best sequel I've ever seen to a movie 60+ years old!

Rob Marshall already has plans for another film.

If there's a great character and story to tell, why not?

This movie was very disappointing, so many songs yet none of them were memorable at all.

Today, the movie just reached a milestone for live-action musical films at the box-office.

Quote:
Shoutout to Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns which becomes the fifth highest live-action musical at the domestic box office with $150.7M to date, beating the lifetime stateside totals of Les Miserables ($148.8M), Mamma Mia! ($144.2M) and will soon pass La La Land ($151.1M). Worldwide, she’s at $287.9M and counting. Through 26 days in releases at the domestic B.O., Poppins is still pacing ahead of Fox’s The Greatest Showman by 58%. There have been various prolific star-studded screenings of the film in this final weekend of phase 1 Oscar nom voting with Sophia Loren here in LA and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively in NYC. There is also a Mary Poppins Experience complete with sets and a screening occurring today on the Disney lot in Burbank.
