I seems that Julie Andrews won't be in the film after all. :(

Quote:
While Dick Van Dyke announced he will be returning for the sequel, Andrews tells ET's Leanne Aguilera that she doesn't think she'll be a part of it, but she is thrilled to be able to pass the torch to the Golden Globe-winning actress.

"Emily Blunt is going to play Mary Poppins and I am a great fan," Andrews says. "I think she is terrific and a perfect pick."

It's possible that they're keeping her role or cameo under wraps so that it will be a surprise for audiences. That's just my wishful thinking though.

Well, you may be right. After all, it's not uncommon for actors to deny some information in an interview if they are not allowed to reveal it yet. I hope that's the case here. Though it's not that important to me whether she's in the film or not, it would be nice if she was, especially when Dick Van Dyke has a role in the movie.

Why do I get the feeling the third still image is highly reminiscent of the "Anything Can Happen" number from the Broadway version of Mary Poppins?

I just can not get excited about this film...as a fan of the original..I just can not see how they think that they can recreate that kind of magic. Also, how can you honestly even look at it as a companion piece to the original film in the fact that....Emily Blunt and Julie Andrews look nothing alike and I just can't buy into a "sequel" that is made 50 years after the first. So, this film takes place 20 years after the first story...and Mary has not aged at all? Would have been more believable and easy to digest if Blunt was playing the role as an older version of the character. With so many wonderful young adult novels, childrens books, original ideas out there...why are we rehashing this? I think I could have been behind an all-out remake of the original film versus this hog-wash.

In for Ben Whishaw; otherwise, I'm not particularly interested.

I guess this means there will be some animation in it, after all. Though the question still remains if it's going to be 2D or CG.

Quote:
Cue the arrival of prim and peculiar Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt), who leads Michael’s wayward children (and Jane and Michael themselves) on a series of unbelievable adventures — to the top of Big Ben, the bottom of the ocean, into magical encounters with animated dancing penguins and upside-down cousins (hey, Meryl Streep!).

Bottom of the ocean...?

Funny, that was originally going to be in the original Mary Poppins, but it was reused for Bedknobs and Broomsticks. :?

I didn't notice the images in the gallery I posted a link to before had captions. In the first photo the caption reveals the title of one of the film's songs:

Quote:
Jack the lamplighter (Lin-Manuel Miranda) leads the three Banks children — Annabel (Pixie Davies), Georgie (Joel Dawson), and John (Nathanael Saleh) — and Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) through the streets of London in the big musical number, “Trip a Little Light Fantastic.”

It’s true! I immediately thought of Bedknobs and Broomsticks when I read that part. And they’re repeating the penguins too.

I’m not surprised there will be animation in the film, because it seems they’re replicating all the elements that are characteristic of the original film: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s character replaces Bert, the scene with the lamplighters looks very similar to Step in Time, etc. I hope it’s 2D, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was 3D.

Well, Emily Blunt is almost 10 years older than Julie Andrews was when she performed the character. I believe she was 25, and Emily Blunt is 34 now. But this sequel is set 25 years later, so I'm not sure if Mary Poppins is meant to be older in this version or not. I've never read the books, does she age in them? As she has magical powers, I wonder if she doesn't age the same way as normal people do.

I can't remember, is this a musical? If so, it's too bad the Sherman Bros. couldn't be involved. I'd love if, since DisneyJedi mentioned it, if "Anything Can Happen" or "Practically Perfect" could've been lifted from the musical to this.

I've only read the first Mary Poppins book but I don't think she ages so that part doesn't really bother me.

The bottom of the ocean part reminded me of Bedknobs and Broomsticks as well and I'm excited for the Big Ben scenario. I'm not sure how I feel about seeing more animated penguins. I realize they're a pretty iconic part of Mary Poppins but I don't feel the need for a repeat of them. I'd much rather see a new adventure than a retread of what was in the original film.

I share many of your concerns. The deeper we get into these modern Disney reboots or re-imaginings, the more I can't help but wonder if the claim that Disney's trying to re-brand isn't true?

Despite that, I fully expect this film to make a billion dollars the same way the Beauty and the Beast remake did. A lot of "fans of the title" kind of fans out there it would seem to Disney's great fortune.

Emily Blunt based her Mary Poppins on another surprising movie

Thanks for the answer. I've read the synopses of the eight books in the series on Wikipedia and they all feature Mary Poppins and the Banks children. Jane and Michael aren't shown as adults, I guess that was invented for the movie. As it doesn't seem to be a big leap in time like in this film, I suppose the books don't give an answer to that.

Well, it has been confirmed Julie won't be in it. :( :( :(

At least Julie's reason is extremely classy and graceful. So much props and respect to to her!

Disney AND Pixar artists? That doesn't sound right. Does this mean it's going to be CG? I wish they'd clear this up already. I doubt either studio is working on the sequence. It's probably outsourced to a small, indie studio comprised of former Disney and/or Pixar animators.

Quote:
An animated musical number

Long live the penguins! The four dapper dancing birds return for a musical number that finds Mary and Jack leading the Banks children into an animated world inside a Royal Doulton bowl where, surprise, a grand music hall performance is about to take place. Veteran Disney and Pixar artists are already at work animating the well-dressed antelopes, polar bears, gazelles, and conductor orangutans who populate the cartoon Victorian opera house, where Jack and Mary tap onstage alongside the real stars of the show: the four hoofing penguins named after Astaire, Hardy, Grant, and Chaplin.

I asked the guy who wrote the article and he said it's going to be 2D. Where do Pixar artists figure in though, I don't know.

According to IMDB the animation department of the film is comprised of the following artists:


Quote:
Animation Department
James S. Baker ... storyboard artist
Jim Capobianco ... animation sequence supervisor
Ketki Gokhale ... character rigger
James Woods ... character designer

Jim Capobianco and James S. Baker work or have worked at Pixar and James Woods at Disney Animation.
