Julie Andrews definitely won't appear in 'Mary Poppins Returns'

Julie Andrews definitely won't appear in 'Mary Poppins Returns'

While it's incredibly admirable that Andrews doesn't want to run the risk of overshadowing Blunt by appearing in Mary Poppins Returns, we're pretty upset that we won't get to see the legendary actress make a cameo. And one would be right.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall revealed that the original Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews, won't appear in the sequel. Since then though we've learned that Rob Marshall, Oscar-winning director of musical Chicago, would be taking the helm while Emily Blunt would be stepping into the iconic eponymous character first originated on-screen by Julie Andrews. "I think a lot of people feel that way about Emily's work".

The sequel of Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Returns, casts Emily Blunt in lead role. There was talk about doing one in the '80s or '90s that never materialized, but when Disney brought this up to me, they said the Travers estate was very open to this, as long as we treated it carefully.

"Julie will always be, for me and for everybody, the most astonishing performance as Mary Poppins, winning the Oscar and bursting onto the scene so brilliantly". I don't want that.

The news that "Mary Poppins Returns" was in development by Disney broke in 2015 and it was reported that the film would feature a standalone narrative based on the remaining seven books in the series.

However, with Emily Blunt about to take over the role in a new follow-up film, Julie has no desire to put in an appearance, as she wouldn't want to take the shine off anyone else. "And I thought, well, that's the one thing I know I can do - treat it as beautifully as it deserves to be treated".

Mary Poppins Returns won't star the great Dame Julie Andrews.

For Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is best known for creating and starring in the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton, his pinch-me moment came when he first heard the music Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman have composed for it. Alongside Blunt, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer will be portraying the roles of the Banks children who are now all grown up and have their own families. It is still very early in the film's production as it is only scheduled for release on Christmas Day 2018.
