A classic is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary. That’s right, 50 years ago, Mary Poppins came into the lives of so many people and that beloved nanny has captured hearts for generations since. I grew up loving Mary Poppins and my daughter now shares that love. At least once a week, you will catch us singing along to one (or many) of the songs from the movie as well as watching the movie itself.
Releasing from the Disney Vault in celebration of its 50th Anniversary, creative visionary Walt Disney’s classic shines for the first time on Blu-ray. Starring Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews in her Academy-Award winning role, and featuring iconic toe-tapping songs including “A Spoonful of Sugar” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” Mary Poppins is a movie experience your family will enjoy again and again. An all-new digital restoration adds even more magic – helping bring the award-winning songs and amazing picture to life like never before. Share the music; share the magic; share the joy of Mary Poppins this holiday on Blu-ray Combo Pack & HD Digital December 10.
Mary Poppins is now playing a big role in my daughters life, just like it did mine. Of course we are much more technologically advanced than the days of my VHS version of Mary Poppins, now it’s available on Blu-ray Combo pack with some fun extra features.
- Mary-OKE’s – New piece highlights popular music from the film, specifically “Spoon Full of Sugar,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” Step In Time,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and allows viewer to sing-along to animated words that display onscreen in unique ways.
- Becoming Mr. Sherman (TBC by theatrical team): Join actor Jason Schwartzman as he sits down for a fun and musical-filled afternoon with Richard Sherman. In the new film, SAVING MR BANKS, Schwartzman portrays the Disney Legend… half of the famous composing team, the Sherman Brothers who wrote all the classic songs from MARY POPPINS, as well as many other favorites. Hear heartwarming, revealing stories about the making of this beloved musical, get more insight on working with Walt Disney, and get a unique sneak peek into SAVING MR BANKS, starring Tom Hanks, and Emma Thompson.
The movie is full of fun songs, lessons, and an awesome mixture of animation mixed with reality. Mary Poppins remains one of my favorite movies to this day and I am so glad that Disney released it. Be sure to pick up your copy before it heads back to the vault.
