Did You Know?


Author P.L. Travers was very critical of the first film, especially the music and animation. However, towards the end of her life, she authorized the creation of a stage production by Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Walt Disney Theatrical based on the film and her novels, with the stipulation that no one involved in the creation of the film (particularly the Sherman brothers) be involved, and even included these requirements in her will. Although she passed away in 1996, the play successfully debuted in 2004. Largely as a result of this reconciliation, Walt Disney Studios was able to restart negotiations with Travers' estate, which resulted in authorization for this film. See more »

Better Than the Original!!!
19 December 2018 | by VertigoOneSee all my reviews

I have always been a huge fan of Mary Poppins (1964), Walt Disney's beloved live-action/animated masterpiece -- the rapturous, infectious joy of it all always floods me with emotion! But this more mature sequel has inspired, awakened me to new Truth!

"Everything is possible -- even the impossible!" Proclaims the practically perfect Poppins. Mary has quite literally breathed me into existence with these words.

Before I go any further, I must confess that, since I was very young, I have constantly let fear dictate my life and hold me back from doing what my heart tells me to do. Disney films have always encouraged me, "follow your heart," "believe in yourself," and "Don't let others tell you what you can or can't do." Its only now, after seeing MPR, that I understand what they mean and that I have the courage to face my fears and follow my heart! <3

I know this sounds a little weird, but my dream has always been to find a way to bring dead people back to life. 3 years ago, my pet shih-tzu was put to rest; and ever since, I have been keeping him in my freezer, waiting for the moment when I finally have enough courage, determination, and, yes, faith' to thaw him out and start operating on him.

I know this might sound crazy to you, but I believe that by accessing the 4th dimension, I nay be able to hypomagnetically retrieve Gyro's soul from the Upside-Down world (Gyro is the name of my dog). I believe it's possible and, thanks to Mary Poppins, I now have the faith to do it.

Very few people now about this, but if you gently wrap both ends of a speaker wire around your dog's right and left ears and say "booboo booboo nanny nanny zop _______" with a French accent that this will retrieve their soul from the Uspide Down world (I'm leaving out a word from the chant, so that others will not try to do this with their friends at home.)

I am planning on bringing Gyro back in the morning. I have let people tell me this is impossible for three years now -- I am listening to the HATERS no longer! 2019 is going to be an awesome year: I can't wait to see all of my dead family members again! Thank you, Mary Poppins! And most of all, thank you Disney for telling our children the truth and not constantly shoving idealistic, relativistic, new age, post-modern prattle down their throats! :)
