Mary Poppins...the one and only magical nanny has always been associated with the talented and amazing Julie Andrews. In a previous article, I shared my excitement at the upcoming new musical, which will bring us new adventures and is set 20 years after the original movie. Rumors and speculations about who will play the role of Mary Poppins have been flying around the social media and news sites.
At the top of many fans’ list as well as rumored to be the top choice for Disney was the beautiful, Emily Blunt. As seen in the recent Disney film, “Into the Woods” Ms. Blunt has the vocal talent as well as the acting capabilities to take on the iconic role of Mary Poppins. Inside sources have now shared that Emily Blunt has in fact been offered the role of Mary Poppins.
Although we do not have official confirmation from Walt Disney Studios or Ms. Blunt, in this Entertainment Writer’s opinion, she would be crazy not to accept it. Playing the role of Mary Poppins would be a dream come true.
Many fans have been critical in their comments of a new Poppins film, but I am thrilled and beyond excited at the idea of the many stories, P.L Travers wrote about my favorite nanny, coming to the big screen. While Saving Mr. Banks, gave us an intimate look into the making of my favorite film, the new Mary Poppins will bring bits and pieces that will add to the magic and mystique of the one of a kind, Mary Poppins.
