I am so happy that Rob Marshall wanted a hand drawn sequence for the film. It would've been so easy for Disney if it was CG, but Marshall was like: "No, I want a hand-drawn sequence just like the original" and I am very glad he went that direction.

Rob has always been a very artistic person who cares about aesthetics so it's not a surprise to me he insisted on a hand-drawn sequence. It wasn't just because the original had 2D animation, it's because he understands the medium offers a certain feel than CG animation can't replicate. You can always count on his movies being visually lush and appealing even when the script isn't as strong.

New international posters and more articles.

I love those posters! Especially, the whole flowing petals theme. There's a British variation of them too, if you're interested.

I like the golden sparkles and light coming out of her umbrella but her lower half seems off. She looks a little off balance as if she was caught mid-step.

That was so wonderful hearing the iconic orchestral version of "Spoonful of Sugar" in Marc Shaiman's score.

It was but it made me miss the original music even more. I wish they had let Richard Sherman write the songs or even just the score. It would have helped maintain better musical cohesion with the original film.

Am I the only one who didn't like it? :huh: It's a poor imitation of the Sherman brothers' style. Here's hoping the other songs will be better.

That's true. Speaking of Rob Marshall, he talks a bit about the 2D animation in the film in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUwETQy3N5I

Thanks! This really solidified my perception of him. It's nice to hear he wanted to honor the craft of hand-drawn animation.

The passion and love that he has on this movie is undeniable and contagious. I love it! :D

Same! I think that's helped clear the reservations of many of us.

I wasn't impressed by it either. Well, I'd like to clarify that I haven't disliked any of the song snippets we've gotten so far, including this one. It's just that the songs from the original film are so good, that I was expecting more. I didn't expect them to be as good as the Sherman brothers' ones, I knew that was very difficult, but, I don't know, these ones aren't as catchy as I hoped and have a more generic Broadway sound. Anyway, I know that these are just small snippets and that there are more songs in the film, so I agree that we'll have to listen to the full soundtrack to judge it properly.

I have some hope, though, because I really like the music we hear in the first trailer from this point till the end. I wasn't sure if it was from the film or not, but we now know that the music from the beginning of the trailer is from "Can You Imagine That", so I assume that melody is also from a song we haven't heard yet. I also like the titles of most of the songs and some details we know about them, so I hope I'm mistaken and they're better than they seem to me now from the little we've already heard.

Yes, that was great. And what I liked even more is when she orders Michael to close his mouth like in the original. It's a nice reference.

By the way, I wonder which animators came out of retirement to work on the animated sequence.

Indeed D82, that music from the end of that trailer sounds like it may be a great song.

Apparently there was a SAG screening in LA and it ended with a standing ovation. The people tweeted nothing but positive notices basically saying what a pure joy the entire film is. :D :D :D :D

In 'Mary Poppins Comes Back', Mary comes down from the skies, holding onto the kite. Just like in the trailers.

I like that they're incorporating different moments from the film for the soundtrack cover than just re-using the theatrical poster as is. It's little touches like that which makes you realize a lot of care has gone into the film.

Those clips were lovely! Plus I love the soundtrack cover's good use of the theatrical poster's artwork in different ways, very clever. Plus the article about the songs is so interesting that I dearly wished the entire panel with Shaiman and Wittman playing the songs was filmed.

I mean, when Disney proper is only making a handful of films a year and most of what they've released has been lackluster (to put it nicely), I'd think they would need to put in a lot of care and attention to this film and its marketing.

Thanks for the confirmation. It's a fitting way to introduce the character given that the original finishes with kites.

Me too. Unfortunately, recording wasn't allowed during the event, but a Rotoscopers collaborator was there and shares some of the songs' lyrics in this article.

Here's also the entire Q&A panel after the screening for SAG members that took place on Saturday. I found it quite interesting.

And some articles are already discussing the Oscar chances of the film:

I know someone who saw the film today. I think we can start believing the hype. This film could be big.
