MARY’S BIG RE­TURN — BREEZING IN ON A BROLLY

Daily Mail - - Countdown To Brexit D-day -

THE orig­i­nal 1964 Mary Pop­pins was set in 1910. The se­quel, Mary Pop­pins Re­turns, which cost an es­ti­mated £150 mil­lion, moves the ac­tion to 1934.

Mary (Emily Blunt) is called back to help for­mer charge Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), a wi­d­owed fa­ther of three with money trou­bles. Emily Blunt’s fear of heights made film­ing the ar­rival scene a real chal­lenge. She says: ‘I was 50ft in the air and so scared. As I landed, one of the cam­era guys said: “I got re­ally choked watch­ing you ar­rive there.”

‘It re­minded me that peo­ple re­ally need a film and a mo­ment like this.’
