To promote the modern day Mary Poppins reboot Mary Poppins Returns featuring Emily Blunt, an “image-in-motion” of the dear nanny was featured at D23 Expo 2017. The moving image features Blunt in a cobalt coat and red hat, accessorizing with her iconic parrot head umbrella.
Blunt took to the stage at the D23 Expo in Anaheim this morning, joining director/producer Rob Marshall to talk about the eagerly-anticipated return of the enigmatic nanny, where Blunt offered insight as to how she made the character her own.
“I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews but carve out a new space for myself. And we were very loyal to the books,” said Blunt.
Marshall shared, “I was incredibly honored to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel. This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen.”
