The Academy announced shortlists in several categories today. The two songs from the film submitted by Disney made the cut, and the film is still in contention for original score and visual effects.

Just got out of seeing Mary Poppins Returns and I have these quick things to say:

1. The numbers are wonderfully staged, filmed and sung plus hearing Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman's great songs in stereo surround sound was so lush and full.

2. The story and plot are refreshingly the type of sequel that continues the story and not be a total rehash of the first film. Plus with Wilkins it adds more stakes to the plot and Colin Firth is deliciously greedy which is quite a relief to see, plus him as the animated wolf adds to it with a nightmarish carriage chase which was one of the highlights of the film.

3. This is Rob Marshall's best film since Chicago, maybe his best thus far.

4. Everyone from Emily Blunt to Lin Manuel Miranda did a fantastic job with special props to Emily as being an absolutely perfect Mary Poppins.

5. And yes Karen Dotrice, Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury's cameos were pure delight!

6. Go see this movie as many times as you can!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I saw the movie opening day. It is very good and very well made. It is respectful of the original’s legacy and it doesn’t diminish from it. Emily Blunt is very good in the role... she makes a few different choices than Julie did but is still recognizably Mary Poppins. She’s much more vain and she’s funnier with a drier sense of humor. She is curiously meeker, sitting through a tongue thrashing from her former charge which she never would have entertained 50 years ago. Sometimes you can see the gears turning in this Mary’s Head, too, as though she is forming her schemes as she goes along which is a new development. Walt’s Mary seemed to be perpetually 10 steps ahead of everyone else, all the time. This change makes her seem more human and a little less omnipotent. But Emily Blunt must be applauded for making the role her own, and standing up to the challenge. Her Mary was a delight, and as a fan of this character, I could rest easy early on because clearly my beloved nanny remained in good hands. Lin-Manuel Miranda gives a good performance, as does Meryl Streep in this film’s Uncle Albert role. I can very much believe Karen Dotrice grew up to be Emily Mortimer. The music is good but after listening to the soundtrack quite a bit and watching the movie, I am unconvinced that it quite measures up to the Sherman Brothers’ original— but that would be a very tall task, indeed.

They did an admirable job crafting a sequel to Disney’s magnum opus. It’s a good movie, if undeniably derivative. Mary Poppins Returns really feels like what a very good Mary Poppins movie should turn out like in the 2010’s, as despite its undeniable joy and quality production numbers, this movie has all the same dramatic defects of Disney remakes and soft remakes like Beauty and the Beast and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (unnecessary action scenes, overexplaining things that are really quite simple, retelling the same story in the guise of a sequel). To my mind, something special, unique and impossible to recreate happened in the 60’s. This film can never quite escape the shadow of the original, but it never really tries to, either.

I liked the film, and the finale almost made me well up. I will see it again in theatres, and certainly buy it on BD. This movie was always going to be a mixed carpet bag for me, I do appreciate the care and attention lavished on the film, and I’m very thankful to Rob Marshall and his team for that dedication.

Going to see it tomorrow night. Very excited. I have not listened to the soundtrack yet, because I really don't want any spoilers.

The Disney awards website posted the entire score you can listen to for free. Unfortunately it's no longer possible to download the mp3 files playing in the page. (I was a able to download the Incredibles 2 score while it lasted some 10 days ago).

https://www.waltdisneystudiosawards.com ... urns/score

If anyone knows of any workaround to download the music files, it would be very much appreciated.

I posted that Youtube playlist as a solution to download the extended score from the Disney Awards website, given that there are lots of online programs to download videos from Youtube, but now I've noticed that track 22 is blocked because of copyright infringement. I've also found an extension for Firefox that allows you to download the MP3 files directly from the Disney website. If you have Firefox, do the following:

1. Google "Firefox add-ons".
2. Click on the first result and type "video download helper" in the search bar. The icon has three circles.
3. Download the extension, then open the Disney Awards website. The icon for the extension will be in the top right corner of the browser.

It doesn't detect the files until you play them. One disadvantage it has is that (at least on that site) when you download the files, they all have the same name. So, I would download them one by one and rename each file after it has been downloaded. I've been able to download the score that way myself. I hope it works for you too.


Thank you so much. I'm going to do that. By the way, I'm using Chrome and the same extension is available for this web browser.
UPDATE:using Chrome, the file would not download and I would get a failed download error message but with Firefox I was able to do that just as you described. Thanks again.

Can I marry a movie?

This was just perfect. Ughhhh WE NEED MORE FILMS LIKE THIS.

Some numbers almost made me clap out loud in the middle of the cinema. I love it.

I just smiled from one end to the other and cried a lot during the end.

No problem. I'm glad it worked for you. :) And thanks again for alerting us of the complete score. And for asking, because if you hadn't asked, I wouldn't have thought there was a way of downloading the files and I wouldn't have been able to download that score and the other ones on that website myself either.

So apparently the traditionally animated sequences were made by Duncan Studio, and not by WDAS. That's a shame.

Did someone stay until the end of the credits and know if there's any song playing?

In the Brazilian dub there is another version of The Place Where Lost Things Go, sung by the dubbing artists who provided the voices of Mary Poppins, Jack, Jane and Michael. The song is even on the soundtrack album, but there isn't anything like that on the English album and I'm not seeing the movie in English until January :/

I just came back from seeing it. It was such an amazing movie experience. So original and fresh, and so beautiful. :D First of all, Emily Blunt was the ideal Mary Poppins. I thought there was no way she could replace Julie Andrews, but her performance was really great. Lin Manuel Miranda as Jack was so awesome and really fun. The children were pretty good, too. I really didn't expect to see Karren Dotrice in here, when she appeared, I gasped. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: My friends actually asked, "Are you okay, what happened?".
The music was great. I loved that we heard some notes from the original Mary Poppins in the score, but the songs themselves were some of the greatest I heard in quite a while. I loved that they included the overture as well, and in the same style as the original. I thought that they would go the same route as Beauty and the Beast last year, and only include the overture in the soundtrack, not the movie itself. The opening song performed by Miranda captured the feeling of the movie so well, and I loved that they closed it with the short reprise.

What can I say, I really loved it. I'll be humming the songs for quite some time now. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Quote:
There is a school of thought that No. 2 could be a three-way race between Poppins, Bumblebee and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with $20M. Right now, sources are seeing Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns with a $6.2M first Friday and a projected 3-day of $20M-$23M; by Sunday it’s five-day could be as high as $32M. It’s a musical, it’s going to leg out, and by Sunday could be running as much as 138% ahead of the $13.4M Wednesday through Sunday launch of The Greatest Showman a year ago.


There are some people in the comments snarking at how much it's done so far, rooting for it to bomb. I hope it doesn't; this movie has a lot of appeal to me. That hand drawn animation scene in particular.

I make a habit of not reading the comments of trade publications like Deadline and Variety, because they tend to attract the most cynical of commenters.

I have also long moved past the point of rooting for a movie's failure. No matter the film, hundreds of people work hard to put a film together and deserve to see their work seen by millions of people. Plus, the more hits a studio has, the better for them. I definitely have my movies I hope do really well at the box-office (Mary Poppins Returns and Into the Spider-Verse are the ones I'm most rooting for this Christmas), but I don't cheer when their competition flops. I haven't seen Aquaman, but I'm really pleased at how well it's doing. Meanwhile, while I rather disliked Mortal Engines, it's still sad to see it do so horribly.

I just came back from seeing this-- it is so magical. I laughed, I cried, I had a blast. The music is so good, too. I absolutely adored how much animation is in this. Great job to all involved in its making!

Too bad it's going to do nothing to renew interest in 2D animation.

Maybe...but Rob Marshall was such a champion for 2D for this film...maybe other filmmakers will see how well MPR is doing and all the praise the animation is receiving, and maybe just maybe (even just for scenes within a live-action film) they'll incorporate 2D in their films? #maybe
