The holiday season is here! While every holiday season is filled with joyful family movies, 2018 is a special kind of year. For the first time in over 50 years, we will be revisiting one of the most beloved characters of all-time, Mary Poppins. For the sequel, fan-favorite Emily Blunt takes over nannying duties from Julie Andrews, and boy oh boy does she look to be the absolute perfect choice. As we approach its official release, the film looks fantastically magical, but how are they able to capture such a thing? A new featurette answers that question.
The movie is now just a matter of weeks away, and thankfully they’ve moved forward from releasing new footage and instead given us a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the film. In the footage, director Rob Marshall and star Emily Blunt talk about the process and just as the title displays, how the story continues. If you are looking forward to this film in any way, shape or form, this featurette is definitely something you’d be interested in.
What is your feeling towards the film? Have you liked the footage? Is Blunt the absolute best pick for the role? Leave all your thoughts and feelings in the comments below! Also starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and Dick Van Dyke, Rob Marshall’s Mary Poppins Returns lands in theaters on December 19th.
