    Disney will once again say the word "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." A new "Mary Poppins" is coming, based on another in the P.L. Travers series.

    At least it's not a remake. It seems like it will be a sequel, based on the books. Although I wish Disney released more original movies, this is better news than the Live action remake of Winnie the Pooh, Jungle Book, Pete's Dragon, Pinocchio , Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and whatever else Disney has planned.

      No surprise -- it's par for the course for a corporation whose Job 1 is marketing brands.
      "Disneyland is often called a magic kingdom because
      it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
      together with every variety of recreation and fun,
      designed to appeal to everyone."

          They have updated versions of Cinderella and Maleficent, and now Beauty and the Beast next year. Why not Mary Poppins?

            As somebody on Tumblr wisely put it, "'Disney literally just released a film explaining why P.L. Travers didn't even want any film in the first place."

              If anything this movie needed a prequel, not a sequel. I'd love to know the history between Bert and Mary.

                I'm at least interested to see what they do with it. It's new material from her other books, not a remake/sequel, and they have Rob Marshall directing with the Hairspray songwriting team doing the music. They're going to have a huge challenge to be in the same league as the original, but at least they are bringing in top talent.

                  Kristen Bell would be my top choice with Amy Adams second, though there might be an unknown out there who's practically perfect in every way. The actress should not make the Brandon Routh mistake of carefully imitating the outstanding lead actor who played the same character.

                  I don't share Daboltz's discomfort with this. The ending of Star Wars part 6 (the third one made) and parts 1-3 didn't lower my opinion or enjoyment of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. And I blissfully pretend that Godfather III was never made, but I'm glad that artists risked wrath and made Aliens 2, Superman 2, Spiderman 2, Godfather 2, Rocky 2-6, Back to the Future 2 & 3, and Gremlins 2.

                    They tossed this idea around back in the 80's,( ). The story they were looking at could turn into a well done film (parts of the books unused in the 1st Mary Poppins) but I also wonder about casting.
