I've never been a huge Poppins fan. I appreciate the movie in terms of the strides and progress and importance in Walt's career, but in 2017, almost 2018, it just doesn't quite have the stamina for me. It actually just isn't a good movie after the first 30 minutes.

That being said, I am interested in how the remake does and hoping for a few less weird, drawn out, slow scenes.
The Poppins movie coming out next year is a new movie and not a remake. It takes place during the Great Depression. It will be interesting to see how it turns out. Love the original movie and absolutely love the Sherman Brothers music. But I will go into the theatres with an open mind.

Even if things were hinted at that didn’t happen or weren’t announced doesn’t mean they weren’t a thing when they were hinted at. Things change. Some things don’t. Doesn’t mean the hints are or were wrong. In general, the info shared here is done with all that in mind and I rarely if ever see hard and fast predictions that require proof. Besides, proof that something g is being considered isn’t really proof of anything that can be verified by what actually happens.
If someone is armed with full plausible deniability then they can't have full or news full credibility. Cause there's nothing risked by saying whatever...

It's a bit philosophical...but also inconveniently true.

[QUOTE="
What I want when I walk out of a WS attraction is a deeper understand of the country. I don't expect a complex historical treatise but maybe a few moments where I could say I learned something or had a deeper understanding of the host country..[/QUOTE]

I like and want this too...

The content of the story is made up, but the story itself is inherently real and associated with the UK by many.
It isn't. I don't believe for a second that you believe that.

As far as IPs in Epcot go it is a great fit. But saying that Mary Poppins has any educational value towards the UK is insane.

That’s not the point of a rumors board. That would be the confirmed truths board. With experience you’ll get a great feel for who to follow and who to ignore...like I am right now.

But saying that Mary Poppins has any educational value towards the UK is insane.
Mary Poppins kindly presents several aspects of 1930's British culture, such as:
- Kindness towards animals (feed the birds)
- Love of equestrian sports (the Derby)
- Propensity to support social justice causes (Mrs Banks' involvement in the suffragettes)
- High regard for traditional values (Mr Banks' insistence on routine)
- Tolerance of eccentricity (Admiral Boom's lookout and cannon)

Although it refers to the Ms Travers' series of Mary Poppins books, this essay highlights the emphasis on Mary's role in reinforcing the class-conscious British societal norms, while also acknowledging a slightly anarchist side to her of which we see only the barest glimpse in the movie.

British food is so... bland... I thought it was a fluke, but after my second and third visit it solidified my initial thoughts. I'm so glad that we've (USA) taken those basic foods from the UK and added flavor to them.

In regards to a ride, as long as it has more flavor and fun than the food, I don't care what it is. I'll ride it at least once. lol
