With Mary Poppins Returns now on Digital and available on Blu-ray/4K tomorrow, I recently sat down with director Rob Marshall to talk about making the sequel. During the wide-ranging conversation, he talked about what he’s excited for fans to see on the Blu-ray, how they designed the incredible practical sets and if they ever discussed saving them, what it was like working with his hero Dick Van Dyke, why they had to shoot the animation/live-action sequence first, what he was nervous to film before shooting began and why, and a lot more.
Check out what Rob Marshall had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about followed by the official synopsis.
Here’s the official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns:
In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
