    They could start the movie as an older Mary and Bert, then have Mary and Bert sing one song (if they're up to it) and then have Mary crack a joke, "say that was fun" and poof she's younger. Then Emily Blunt take over and it's their way of doing a passing of the torch. Something to that effect.

    That's another spin... I believe this is what they'll do with Indiana Jones as well. I think they will have IJ5 feature a long flashback that introduces the newly cast younger Indy then after IJ5 they make new films set in the past with that actor.

    Actually, Julie CAN sing, but she doesn't have the range she once had, so no more high notes. :(

    Also, here's an article about The Guy Who Played Bert that reveals the character he'll play in the new Poppins film: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/...-in-upcoming-sequel-to-mary-poppins/95657420/

    Still wish Meryl "Slandermouth" Streep wasn't in this... :p

    Production had officially started.

    Cast -
    Emily Blunt - Mary Poppins
    Lin-Manuel Miranda - Jack (lamplighter)
    Ben Whishaw - Michael Banks
    Emily Mortimer - Jane Banks
    Julie Walters - Ellen (housekeeper)
    Colin Firth - William Weatherall Wilkins (bank manager)
    Meryl Streep - Topsy (Mary's cousin)
    **** Van **** - Mr. Dawes Jr
    Pixie Davies - Banks' child
    Nathanael Saleh - Banks' child
    Joel Dawson - Banks' child

    "Mary Poppins Returns" 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).

    Same here. Some time last year or two while accepting an award, she for no reason, dissed Walt Disney. Her reason... because Walt didn't give women the same benefits as men (it's sad but that's the way it was back then and in some cases still is). The man has been dead for 50 years! Yet, that doesn't stop her from signing on to make Disney movies. She's a nutcase and a hypocrite.

    She sure is. And you'll be happy to know that Walt fully intended to train women as animators - here's a link that will fill you in: http://articles.latimes.com/2013/no...alt-disney-speech-on-women-animators-20131129. Apparently things changed after the war - society changed - and Walt's plan never really came to fruition. But he was still remarkably progressive (in every GOOD sense of that word) for a man of his time. Meryl just never bothered to do any real research on him before spewing her nonsense; she just parroted the same tired old discredited drivel that's been told about him for years. She got reamed for it by the public and people who knew and worked with Walt, but she of course didn't listen. Too special to admit she's wrong, I suppose. :rolleyes:

    If she wanted on they would give it to her. There is no way Disney has not reached out.

    Y'all need to get over something Meryl Streep said years ago about common misconceptions about Walt.
