As for Parent Trap, yes, yes, yes! I felt Lindsey was better in both roles than Hayley was, and that's saying something because I love Hayley Mills. The Parent Trap remake overall is more sophisticated than the original and less campy. You really should see it. :D


Hey! I like Camp.

After three...

Let’s get together, yeah yeah yeah
Why don’t you and I combi-ine
Let’s get together, what do you say
We can have a swingin’ ti-ime
We’d be a cra-a-azy team
Why don’t we ma-a-ake a scene

Is anybody familiar with the Russian version of Mary Poppins? I saw it on Ebay for like $12.00 and took a chance on it. It is translated as "Goodbye, Mary Poppins" though in my estimation it should be "Au Revoir, Mary Poppins".

It is weird to say the least. I've only seen the first part so far.

The Banks kids watch exercise shows on TV.
Admiral Boom lives in an underground bomb shelter shaped like a submarine.
Mrs. Bank's brother camps out in front of her house and is some kind of hippie, sings protest songs and such. I guess he is supposed to be like the Bert character.
London is pretty much uninhabitted (not much of a budget for extras, I guess).
There aren't many fantasy segments, but if you are in the mood for something slower (and a little bit strange) it is worth a shot.
The Dolphin Boy segment from the novel makes it in. Mary talks to the neighbor's dogs, and there is a fantasy about shopping for groceries.
The first part end with a big fire in front of the Bank's house. They were digging to make a bomb shelter and struck natural gas.

I can't wait for the second part!

Why can't Disney figure out they could make so much money just by bringing the Walt Disney magic to DVD. I personally want to see more of the originals getting the DVD treatment they deserve than more of the remakes modern Disney is so fond of.

Yeah, just look at the live action list - there are TONS of moives to be released that they haven't yet. My biggest complaint, however, is not the remakes, but the movies that have been released on DVD several times, like the Limited Issue into Gold Collection, etc.

I found this Russian version on Amazon, and did a search for it, and found this thread. It does sound weird, but all curiosity over that has been washed away by the contents of this thread....

QUEEN LATIFAH?

I had to check and make sure the date on the thread wasn't April 1st. She's funny, but I'm just not sure what to think of this. I know this thread's old... so has anyone heard anything since? Is there any substance to the rumor? I agree with whoever (I think it was either Loomis or Kelvin) said that it will likely only work if it's done as a spoof. Otherwise, it won't be well-received with the public. But can Latifah spoof in a family-friendly manner? Well, it'll be interesting, I'll give it that.

Fortunately they've put this project on hold, until they're able to construct an umbrella large enough to float Queen Latifah around London.

Okay well this piece of information was posted before I was a memeber or even knew about the site so this is a big shcoker to me. I didnt even know they wanted to remake the movie .

Now I am not against remakes i have enjoyed Freaky Friday and the Parent trap I feel that they are movies that have been done well. Great casts and up to dat. BUT there is a difference between these 2 films and Marry Poppins. Marry Poppins is considered a classic with its animation and actors the other 2 films are not. Alos Freaky Friday and pearent Trap were rdone to fit todays way of life the way teenages think and act and even the pranks that younger children have played the times have changed so they wanted to have a more recent version for the audience to realate. Now going on that many people dont have Nannys anymore yes there are the few that do but even so how much more can they monderize it ? I think Queen Lathifa is a great actress and i have nothing aginst her but when I picture her has a nanny I can not help but to think of her role in bring down the house Lol :lol: yes that would be a riot to watch.

Thank God, no, this thread from a long time ago and the rumors surrounding it were the only indication I've ever heard of Disney planning a Mary Poppins remake.

However, they *are* mounting a new stage musical production of Mary Poppins with Cameron Mackintosh (producer extrodinare of The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables and Cats, to name a few) which will bow in London's West End in September, which I am greatly looking forward to. I hope it is successful enough to warrent importing to the Great White Way.

Yeah, I'm very excited for the Mary Poppins musical. Not that I have a good chance of seeing it anytime soon, mind you, but just that other people will be able to. Hopefully this remake business was all rumor. The idea of Queen Latifah as Mary Poppins does make me laugh every time, so it could make for a good comedy, but I don't see it being able to amount to anything more than a Sherry Bobbins episode, so what would even be the point?

Ah I see someone saw that epsiode on the Simpsons. one of my favorite epsidoes.

Willie(as Bert): Sherri Bobbins? Is that you?
Sherri: Hello Willie.
Lisa: You know her?
Willie: Aye. Me and Sherri Bobbins were engaged to be wed back in the old country. Then she got her eyesight back. SDuddenly the ugliest man in Glasworth wasn't good enough for her aye?
Sherri: It's good to see you Wille.
(Willie stops for a moment, and then starts angrily screaming at Sherri)
Willie: THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU SAID THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW ME!


:lol: cracks me up all the time :lol:

OMG!!! Queen Latifah as Mary Poppins rotfl I hope this is all a rumor. Nothing against QL, but she would ruin the whole movie for me!! Nothing can compare to the original, as it was Walt's version, which gives it more magic. And nothing can compare to Julie Andrews, and Dick Van Dyke. I honestly think that Julie made the movie the success it was.

Omg like yaaaaaas :D im sooo excited...nobody can ever top Julie and co....but I would love to see some good old fashioned Disney back, hopefully again with 2D sequences...

I'm thinking who would be a perfect Mary...the first that comes to my mind is Carey Mulligan..Eva Green would also make a great Mary...

They should get Laura Michelle Kelly and Gavin Lee to play Mary and Bert. Because they're the only two who (I think) fit the roles like a glove.

And have Dick Van Dyke return as Mr. Daw-. Oh. Wait. :(

Is nothing sacred, anymore? Disney has become the sell-out company. The decision to make a new adaptation of Mary Poppins seems to stem from a cynical, financial place. Neither the film, nor the original work is a property that warrants revisit.

I no longer have faith in Rob Marshall. Aside from Chicago, his filmography ranges from messy and convoluted to mediocre and barely decent.

I'm also frustrated and disappointed in Richard Sherman's lack of involvement. Since this is supposed to be some sort of sequel, shouldn't he be involved in some capacity? He's not even a consultant even though he's still very active today. He's written a couple of great new songs for Disneyland's 60th anniversary, just this year.

I'm also worried about the animated sequences; they will most likely be in CG. CG can't highlight the contrast between the real and the imaginary world like 2D does nor can it replicate its charm. CG is not associated with childhood innocence and imagination the way 2D is. If by some crazy miracle they do go with 2D, I hope they'll use a studio that can pull off high-quality, Disney-style animation (like the Duncan Studio).

Calm down!

Disney and Marshall are collaborating with the Travers estate and working with the support of Richard Sherman, who co-composed iconic songs like “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” alongside his late brother, Robert.
