#FIRSTLOOK: EMILY BLUNT IN “MARY POPPINS RETURNS”
While it isn’t out till Christmas 2018, we get a new glimpse at Emily Blunt in MARY POPPINS RETURNS coming out of Disney‘s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California today. Director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) and Blunt took to the stage to talk to Fans about the exciting Film.
Blunt said, “I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews but carve out a new space for myself. And we were very loyal to the books”.
Marshall also commented, “I was incredibly honoured to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel. This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen.”.
