Julie Andrews playing big fish in Aquaman


Julie Andrews has landed a secret role in new DC Comics blockbuste­r Aquaman.

Sources tell the actress is making an appearance in the superhero film, which will be released the same week as Mary Poppins Returns

— the sequel to Julie’s beloved 1964 Disney movie.

Andrews will voice Karathen, a mythical undersea creature, in the film, which stars Jason

Momoa as Aquaman, aka Arthur Curry.

“We wanted the Karathen to have the voice of a classic British actress, albeit somewhat digitally altered, and when we found out Julie was interested and available and excited to do it, casting her was a no-brainer,” producer Peter Safran tells “Who knew that Aquaman would have the real Mary Poppins this Christmas?”

The blockbuste­r arrives in cinemas on Dec. 21.
