  • Character of Mary Poppins being Re-Animated in Musical by Disney Studios

The beloved character of Mary Poppins is being re-animated in the form of a live-action musical film by Disney Studios.

The world absolutely loves the character of Mary Poppins. And Disney Studios is about to bring her role back to life via a musical movie that will move audiences.

The all-new original live-action film will portray the admirable and lovable nanny in her usual role as a magical mystical mother-substitute figure. The director of the enterprise is none other than Rob Marshall. And the producers happen to be John DeLuca and Marc Platt.   

The epoch illustrated in the film will be London during the Great Depression. The movie is based on the famous children’s author P.L. Travers’ books. The mid-60s movie starring Julie Andrews took its cue from the first series of Travers’ compendium.

The present film (which by the way is not a sequel at all) is meant to display the rest of Mary’s shenanigans with the Banks family. It will show a lot more than was previously seen by baby boomers in the heavy atmosphere of the Swinging Sixties.

The director has hired some songwriters for the chorus of the film. They are Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. David Magee (of Life of Pi fame) will pen the screenplay. Thus everything will be hunky dory. 

Both Disney Studios and Rob Marshall are cooperating with the Travers estate, reported EW. They want to pull off the magic movie-making with passion and panache.

The former composer who wrote the score for the original will be available to write some more songs too. We all remember his word which is possibly one of the longest in the English Language: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (whatever that means).     

Rob Marshall is known for his 2002 musical titled Chicago. It won him an Oscar back then. He might grab one this time around too. Disney Studios meanwhile has always kept up the entertaining as a non-stop fun factory of the Western World.

It never ceases to amaze and adrenalize the sensation seekers of society. The whole venture was started by good old Walt Disney himself. He was a self-made man who took his enterprise to the heights of success with the passage of time.

He singlehandedly managed to create the focal point for kicks and joy in the Occident. All who visit the Western Hemisphere today never miss a chance to visit Disneyland. And the movies and musicals churned out by the studio that bears his name are mass hypnosis devices that totally mesmerize the masses with snake charmer-like finesse.
