The story has generated a lot of references and similar movies across time. However, the eventuality of another Mary Poppins movie has been there all along. Disney might have considered going down the animation path as it has with so many other characters to make it a children’s favourite.
The project was not taken over though for animation. Since the past five years, there has been a lot of reboots and remakes of classical movies. The fans of the original Mary Poppins movie were hopeful to get a remake of the movie. For a while, Kristen Bell was considered to be a contender to play a role. No confirmations were made.
That all changed recently when Disney finally revealed that the Mary Poppins sequel was in works. The studios confirmed that the movie will continue on the original story, CinemaBlend reported.
The characters Michael and Jane are adults in the upcoming movie in the Depression era. Michael has three children and they are in trouble once more as Mary Poppins comes to save them once more. The project has been titled Mary Poppins Returns which sounds very superhero-ish.
Then again Mary Poppins might have been a hero for a lot of people. Two actors have been confirmed for the project including Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda.
