Practically Perfect in EveryWay! Mary Poppins Returns in 2018!

Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) returns to the Banks home after many years and uses her magical skills to help the now grown up Michael and Jane rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives in MARY POPPINS RETURNS.

I continue to watch the original movie still. Sing each song. Smile and laugh as if I’m seeing it for the first time. The original Mary Poppins was released on August 27, 1964. I was just nine years old and smitten with the film. It came at a particularly hard time in my youth. My parents had just divorced. We lived in a really small town (1 square mile). A town where everyone was catholic and no one divorced. I remember an over-whelming sense of dread at the thought of going back to school in September. Trying to think of ways to explain to people how much my life had changed. And then there was Mary! I secretly wished for the longest time that she could be my nanny! I wanted to dance with penguins. I wanted to go fly a kite! After all, in every job that must be done – there is an element of fun!

The original film enjoyed universal acclaim, received a total of thirteen Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture—an unsurpassed record for any other film released by Walt Disney Studios—and won five; Best Actress for Julie Andrews, Best Film Editing, Best Original Music Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Original Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee“. In 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.  The film is widely considered to be Walt Disney’s “crowning achievement”. Like the recent remake of The Jungle Book, this film holds a special place in my heart. A film that offers so many childhood memories. 

Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, MARY POPPINS RETURNS stars Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, and also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep.

The film, which introduces three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson, also features Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury. The film is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep). The film is produced by Marshall, John DeLuca and Marc Platt. The screenplay is by David Magee based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing all new songs and Shaiman composing an original score.

MARY POPPINS RETURNS will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25, 2018! I can’t wait!




Oh! What a Week! 3 New Movie Clips!

Beauty Beast Pirates Guardians Galaxy

It’s been a week full of new movie clips and posters for upcoming films.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST ~ Marvel Studios’ GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 ~ and one of my favorites ~ PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES ~ all came out with new clips this week.  Here’s a look at each of them!

These two new clips for Beauty and the Beast, opening March 17, are delightful. The first clip, Dinner Invitation, shows a moment in the film that has always made me chuckle since seeing the show on Broadway. The Beast attempts to invite Belle to dinner, but of course doesn’t know how to do in an inviting way. His faithful and fun servants instruct him on how to be gentle but it really doesn’t go well. This is really a turning point in the story since the Beast is unaware that Belle is trying to escape.

In the second clip from Beauty and the Beast we get a look at how empowering the character Belle is!

Beauty Beast Pirates Guardians Galaxy

The newest trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, gives us a look at our hero, Jack Sparrow, and the newest villain, Captain Salazer. It seems like Captain Jack and his new crew will have their work cut out for them. Not only will they have to face Salazer, but they are also up against his ghost sailors who have escaped the Devil’s Triangle to murder all the pirates at sea. But wait, there’s more – ghost sharks. Oh yes, ghost sharks!

Oh! What a Guy – Gaston!

Beauty Beast Gaston Clip

It’s been a long wait, but Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast is just around the corner and will be opening in theaters on March 17.

Lots of dancing and the really catchy song – “Gaston” is sure to have everyone humming and singing this song again for sure! The melody and song in the clip will sound familiar to Beauty and the Beast fans, but with a few new lines added to the lyrics that were not in the original song. Josh Gad as LeFou is fabulous and is perfectly cast and just may upstage Gaston (Luke Evans) every now and then.

Gaston doesn’t sing much in the clip but LeFou sings all about Gaston’s skills while Gaston pouts (in the most handsome of ways) nearby.

A New Star Wars Story Begins!

Principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story has officially begun! The film is slated to hit theaters on May 25, 2018. I hate to admit I haven’t always been a big Star Wars fan or the most loyal of Star Wars followers, but for some reason, I think this one will be at the top of my “must see” list!

The full plot and title is yet unknown but I’m sure it will have us on the edge of our seats! The film will be centered on a young Han Solo as he becomes the smuggler audiences first met in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It also features Chewbacca in what has been described as an “origin story” for the two characters. No story about Han Solo is complete without Chewbacca, and the movie is expected to offer greater insight into the friendship and partnership. Few details have emerged, but it’s expected that we will finally learn the truth about the loyalty the two share with each other.

The adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee is going before cameras this month when principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20th at Pinewood Studios, London.

The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

“Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”

Written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, it will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, Simon Emanuel and co-produced by Kiri Hart, Susan Towner and Will Allegra. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin will executive produce.

Crewing the ship will be some of the industry’s top talent, including Academy Award nominee for his work on “Arrival,” Bradford Young (Director of Photography), Chris Dickens (Editor), Dominic Tuohy (SFX Supervisor), Rob Bredow (VFX Supervisor) and Brad Allan (Action Designer).

They will be joining returning Star Wars veteran crew members Neal Scanlan (Creature & Droid FX Creative Supervisor), Neil Lamont (Production Designer), Dave Crossman and Glyn Dillon (Co-Costume Designers), Jamie Wilkinson (Prop Master), Lisa Tomblin (Hair), Amanda Knight (Make-Up) and Nina Gold (UK Casting Director). 

The untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
