Mary Poppins Sequel?!

Recently on IMDB Disney announced the date for a Mary Poppins sequel starring Emily Blunt. This movie will be coming out Christmas day 2018 (most likely in the US). Instead of having new characters Emily Blunt will be starring as Mary Poppins herself, taking the role from Julie Andrews.


Honestly, I’m not sure about this. I think old movies should be left as they are and kept as classics because they are usually so good and remakes or random sequels kind of ruin them. I could be wrong and this sequel could be amazing but 1) it seems weird to have a sequel now, decades after the original and 2) Julie Andrews is Mary Poppins! There is no other and I’m not sure if Emily Blunt will be able to take the role. She is an amazing actress but Julie Andrews is something else! She is timeless and a one of a kind.


This brings me back to the age old question: are filmmakers running out of ideas? The amount of times filmmakers go back to old stories or remaking old movies is quite staggering and I think with the amount of literature and creative minds in the world why not create something new instead of going back to the same stuff again and again? I’m also not sure about the director and production team as they were the ones who created Into The Woods and I just didn’t think Into The Woods worked too well. There was too much going on and the random song inclusions just didn’t really sit well together.

What do you think of a new Mary Poppins?

Until next time.


  1. I don’t know how to feel. I loved Mary Poppins, but really, a sequel? Like you said, it’s been a long time and I don’t like that it’ll be a different actress playing the main character. Plus, Julie Andrews just IS Mary Poppins. Why are they remaking so many Disney movies too, the originals were fab. I didn’t enjoy the new Cinderella, I’m scared to watch The Jungle Book and terrified for Beauty and the Beast next year, aha. There is also a Remake of the Rocky Horror Picture Show which again, I don’t know how to really react to.


    • I don’t get why they have to remake stuff. Sometimes it’s better the first time around, that’s it. There are so many great books and creative ideas floating around I don’t understand why they don’t just make them instead. Thanks for your comment

      • That’s so true, there are so many books out there that can be adapted and there are so many brains they can pick for fresh and new ideas, they just need to give them a chance. I suppose that by remaking something well loved they already have a large audience as people want to watch it to make a comparison, so in that way they probably earn more than a movie based on something no one has ever heard of and therefore people feel less inclined to see.


      • That’s true but that doesn’t always mean it’ll be good. Even if it’s a box office success just because of interest and then it’s rubbish they won’t get a good reception afterwards. Guess it’s all about the money
