That sounds very promising. :) I'm very much looking forward to seeing it.

That settles it. I'll be going to Mary Poppins Returns when it opens in theaters. I was on the fence as I didn't want to endure LMM's rapping and poor acting but with 20 minutes of 2D animation, how can I not go?

While I'm glad a capable studio is handling the animation with a bunch of former Disney animators working on it, I can't feel but a tad disappointed that WDAS didn't work on it like they did with the original. Not to mention, it would have given their last 2D animators there something to do aside from draw-overs. It's a shame Mark Henn didn't get to work on it like he did on Saving Mr. Banks.

[Mark Henn] confirmed that WDAS has nothing to do with Mary Poppins Returns (he said he would have loved to work on that!), and that they don't know anything about animated sequences in Enchanted 2 yet.

To everyone who is worried about this film's quality...

And by the way, Lin-Manuel reminded us Dick rapped in 'Mary Poppins' (00:43): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5EP2AyVTDk

Listen to 'Jolly Holiday' (05:42): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlhOk5jdbUU

And were you bothered when Meryl rapped in 'Into the Woods'?

This thread confirms that Mary Poppins Returns will have twenty -- yes, TWENTY -- minutes of handdrawn animation.

Wow, I didn't expect the film would have so much 2D animation! That's great news!

Yeah, that's a shame. I'm glad the movie will have 2D animation, but I would've certainly preferred it had been done at WDAS, especially after hearing that Mark Henn would have liked to work on it.

By the way, thanks for all those updates, Old Fish Tale!

Thing is, no matter how much Mark Henn wanted to work on it, it could not be done at WDAS simply because they are no longer equipped to produce even a hand-drawn short, let alone a full twenty minutes of traditional animation (featurette length.) To my knowledge there are only three hand-drawn animators left at WDAS: Mark Henn, Eric Goldberg and Randy Haycock. You don't create twenty minutes of full-flowing hand-drawn animation at 24 frames per second with just three animators. I'd say you'd need eight to fifteen at least, and that's not counting the inbetweeners and clean-up artists.

I doubt Disney even have the tools to produce hand-drawn animation at this point (i.e. appropriate software and accessories, animation desks, etc.)

^They could have pulled it off, if they wanted to. 2D animation is produced digitally now so they don't need special equipment like animation desks anymore. They already have tablets and 2D animation software like Toon Boom. As for personnel, while it's true there are only three people who still work as 2D animators, there are plenty of others at the studio who know how to animate in 2D or used to be 2D animators before transitioning to CG animation who could have easily been recruited to work on a special project like this one. Those include both veterans like Alex Kupershmidt, Kathy Zielinski, Anthony de Rosa, Bert Klein, Mark Mitchell, Doug Bennett, Rachel Bibb, as well as younger ones like Ami Thompson, Tyler Kupferer, Jennifer Hager, Mario Furmanczyk, Hyun Min Lee etc. And of course, they could have hired some extra crew if needed. Duncan Studio did just that to complete the animation on the sequel.They hired extra help for this project who weren't part of their permanent staff.

Let's face it. The problem isn't that WDAS is unable to produce 2D animation anymore. They just don't care enough to even make the effort.

My thoughts exactly, Sotiris. But I was already resigned to the fact that even if there would be hand-drawn in this and Disenchanted, that it wouldn't be made at WDAS. Hand-drawn animation's dead there.

A 2-D animated sequence that goes on for 20 minutes? How can anyone say no to that? Plus it's nice that preview screening word of mouth is really good.

I believe a new trailer will play in front of 'Christopher Robin'. So, we just need to wait three more weeks.

Yup. I would love to see more of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins. :)

Christmas is often one of the biggest days for moviegoing in the US. That's why studios crowd so many of their big movies around that time.

Around the time The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers came out, my family started a tradition of seeing a movie Christmas Day. But it ended when my cousin was against going to movies on Christmas because she had worked at a movie theater and new how sucky it was for people who had to work on Christmas. We still see movies Christmas day here and there, though.

I suppose it is a difference in one's culture. :) Like Atlantica I too would feel a little awkward going to the cinema on Christmas Day. However, getting together at home to watch a movie is different. No problem there.
