The Strand is proud to present for one day only, a back-to-back double feature of the groundbreaking classic original Mary Poppins followed by the contemporary blockbuster sequel Mary Poppins Returns.  It's the best of both worlds for one low price!

 

Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke star in the original musical fantasy that mixed live action with animation.  

 

Walt Disney regarded this film to be one of the crowning achievements of his career. With five wins out of 13 nominations in total, this film marked Walt Disney's single most successful night at the Academy Awards. Never before or since, as of 2016, has a single Disney film won as many Oscars in one evening.

 

At the time, it was the most expensive film produced by the Disney Studios, with an estimated budget of $4.4 - $6M. It has since grossed over $102M, and is one of the most profitable movies of the 1960s.

 

After a brief intermission, patrons will be able to enjoy the delightful sequel released in 2018 starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda in the title roles.

 

Mary Poppins Returns was released 54 years after Mary Poppins, setting a new record as the longest gap between a live-action film and its sequel.

 

When Mary Poppins was being written, the lead role was offered to Julie Andrews by Walt Disney himself. Andrews told Disney that she was pregnant and couldn't do the movie. Disney wanted Andrews so much that he postponed the production in order to accommodate Andrews' pregnancy. When this movie was announced, history repeated itself as Emily Blunt was also pregnant and the movie was postponed to accommodate her pregnancy.

 

It was director Rob Marshall's intention, right from the beginning, to use hand-drawn animation for the film's animation sequences. This was due to his love for hand-drawn animation and also to pay homage to the first film.

 

Emily Blunt dove into P.L. Travers' books, and found out that the character is remarkably different from Walt Disney's vision and Julie Andrews' characterization in the first movie, so Blunt's interpretation is considered to be closer to the books.
