And if the picture with Julie Andrews in the title role was based on the first book in the series about Mary Poppins by Pamela Travers, then the creators of the continuation draw inspiration from the other novels of the writer and intend to tell about the new adventures of Maryand Banks family .


The director's chair of the film will be occupied by Rob Marshall, who initially saw in the character of Mary Poppins only Emily Blunt . Prior to that, the filmmaker managed to work with the actress on the musical "Into the Woods ...".

The script for the new Mary Poppins is being written by David Maggie (Life of Pi), and the music will be written by five-time Oscar nominee Mark Shayman and his partner Scott Whitman (Luck for hair ").


This year, Emily Blunt can be seen in the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, as well as in the thriller Girl on the Train.
