First Look: Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins!

Mary Poppins Returns

I might be a little bit late to the party in Blogging about this but it’s the first real chance that I have had, it certainly will not be the first post about Mary Poppins Returns which is due for a 2018 release, at Christmas. Which is just a practically perfect idea and will do incredible at the box office. Although it currently has 25th December release for the UK, I think we will find that 26th considering no cinemas open on Christmas Day.

I am certainly going to try and not compare Blunt to Julie Andrews, as it is not a remake it is a new story. It is going to be very different to one of the best musical films of all time we already know that. I am excited to see what direction they are going in with it though, the fact Lin-Manuel Miranda is part of the film tells us that we are going to get some very clever rapping and impressive moments! So pleased he is getting the chance to transition into film!

Here is a longer and bigger version of the picture! Carpet bag and all!!!


Come on who else is very excited for this one?

    • I like that it is going to be a different story and new. The Musical stage version of it as a little bit different to the film as well, so just shows that things can work in a different way. I’m just a little concerned with Blunt’s singing as wasn’t overly impressed with her in Into The Woods, think she’ll nail the hard side of the character though!


  1. Emily Blunt is one of those actors who the camera really loves, and she’s a damn fine actor as well. I hope this goes well for her, and truthfully even if it’s panned I’m going to see it just to watch her rock Mary Poppins! 😀

  2. I am certain the movie will be visually pleasant and entertaining. I will go see it. However, it has nothing to do with the original stories. Pamela L. Travers must be turning again in her grave. (Again…after Saving Mr. Banks)
