Mary Poppins 2 Update

Mary Poppins 2 is going by the name of Mary Poppins Returns, and will star Emily Blunt…

Walt Disney Pictures has officially confirmed that Mary Poppins 2 is a greenlit project, and that Blunt will be taking on the title role. Rob Marshall (Chicago, Into The Woods) is directing this one, and it’s going to go by the name of Mary Poppins Returns.

The studio has scheduled a release date of December 25th 2018 in the US for the new movie, so the UK unveiling is likely to be a week either side of that. Joining Blunt in the cast will be Lin-Manual Miranda.

The screenplay is coming from David Magee, and it’s going to be directly based on author P L Travers’ Mary Poppins stories. New songs and music are coming from Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
