Chim chim-in-ey, chim chim cher-ee, chim cher-noooooo! That seems to be the general reaction to reports that Disney is making a new Mary Poppins movie.
Nothing riles up social media like nostalgia, and – judging by the Nsfw tweets below - it's going to take more than a spoonful of sugar to make this sequel go down:
Hey Disney, go fly a kite.
Keep telling yourself, it's only a movie, only a movie, only a movie ......Aaaaaaaargghhh!

Jon Hamm's Emmy nomination for Best Comedy Guest Actor this year is his first for playing the Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne in the Netflix series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," but of course it's not his first recognition from the TV academy. Counting his nominations this year for Best Drama Series and Best Drama Actor for "Mad Men," he's been nominated 16 times without ever winning. Will his Emmy drought finally end? He hopes his episode submission will do the trick: "Kimmy Makes Waffles," the first season finale. -Break- Ellie Kemper on playing 'optimistic' and 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' [Exclusive Video] Synopsis: Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) and her fellow Indiana Mole Women revisit the bunker where they were held captive for 15 years in the hopes of finding evidence against the Reverend.

Ellie Kemper's high school drama teacher was hotter than yours! The "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star opened up about taking a high school drama class taught by the "Mad Men" star during the Netflix TCA panel on Tuesday. Hamm was an alum at Kemper's high school and came back after college to teach drama for one year, where the red-headed beauty was lucky enough to study under the "Bridesmaids" star! "He was not ugly," the 35-year-old told reporters of Hamm. "He was a wonderful teacher." "I was in ninth grade and he taught me the improv section of my theater class, and everyone loved him," she added. The actors recently reunited on "The Office" alum's new show, where Hamm made a guest appearance as Rev. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne.

“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Tituss Burgess entertained his Twitter followers with a lip sync rendition of a Beyoncé song, and got co-star Jane Krakowski and the Netflix sitcom’s co-creator Tina Fey in on the action, too. The three actors, who all scored Emmy nominations for their performances in the sitcom nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, moved their lips along to the 2013 hit single “Flawless” before cracking up. “Kimmy Schmidt,” which stars Ellie Kemper (“The Office”) as the eponymous lead, follows the survivor of a doomsday cult trying to live a normal life in New York City.

The cast and creators of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" took part in Netflix's Television Critics Association press tour stop on Tuesday, and dropped some details about the beloved show's upcoming second season.
"Kimmy" was famously saved by Netflix after NBC decided to pass on the project, but not before filming its entire 13-episode first season. Thanks to network mandates, the show was pretty PG, and that's not going to change much for season two, either.
"I don't think you'll hear profanity or see nudity, but it gives us a license to play with time and structure without worrying about potentially offending an advertiser," co-creator Tina Fey explained of the differences between making the show for a traditional network versus for a streaming service like Netflix. That also means that future episodes of "Kimmy" will likely be longer than the standard 21 minutes and 15 seconds of airtime that network sitcoms get, though no installments will run past 30 minutes. »

While there were some expected snubs at the Emmys, there were also delightful surprises — for example, Tituss Burgess snagging his first Emmy nomination for playing Titus “Pinot Noir” Andromedon on Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. After the announcement, Vulture called Burgess, who made a point of saying that he's sharing his nomination with (snubbed) co-star Ellie Kemper.Congratulations! How did you hear the news? My publicist, my agent, and my manager had a call, and they conferenced me in. I watched a little bit of the live telecast online. After I realized that the other nominations weren't going to be broadcast, I went downstairs and poured myself a drink and came upstairs. Then my phone rang. A lot of your co-stars, including Jane Krakowski, Tina Fey, and Jon Hamm, got nominated. And the show got a nomination for best comedy. Did you expect that? No. But »
