Be­hind the scenes of Mary Pop­pins

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - UPDATE -

Dis­ney is in the act of craft­ing a se­quel to its much-loved 1964 chil­dren’s classic Mary Pop­pins, based on the book by Aus­tralian P.L. Travers. Cur­rently in pro­duc­tion in London, Dis­ney has brought to­gether a stel­lar cast, in­clud­ing Meryl Streep, Julie Wal­ters, Colin Firth and Emily Blunt as the mag­i­cal nanny, for Mary Pop­pins Re­turns. Even Dick Van Dyke, who starred in the orig­i­nal with Julie An­drews and is now 91, has a role. The new film is set in 1935, dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion in London, and the now grown-up chil­dren are vis­ited by their for­mer nanny fol­low­ing a tragedy. Mary Pop­pins Re­turns will come to our screens in 2018.
