WHY JULIE ISN’T IN THE SEQ SE­QUEL

NW - - Turn On -

For the past 54 yeyears, Julie An­drews has been syn­ony­mous with Mary Pop­pins. But when she was ap­proached to make a cameo in the se­quel – and re­port­edly of­fered $1.4 mil­lion! – the act­ing leg­end de­clined. The rea­son? Rob ex­plains that Julie, 83, didn’t want to steal the spot­light away from her suc­ces­sor, to whom she had given her stamp of ap­proval. “Julie was in­cred­i­bly gra­cious... but she made it clear right up front,” shares the di­rec­tor. “She said, ‘This is Emily’s show... I don’t want it to be, oh, here comes that Mary Pop­pins. I re­ally want her to take this and run with it, be­cause she will be bril­liant.’”
