Some of my favorite quotes and songs come from Mary Poppins! It’s a movie full of magic, music, and imagination, the story of a family who is brought back together by an extraordinary nanny.
And of course we can’t leave out the dashing chimney sweep, played by Dick Van Dyke! Emma loved that he was in this movie – she recognized him from The Dick Van Dyke Show and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
This is one of my favorite parts, when they ride the carousel horses through the countryside!
The Mary Poppins Blu-Ray was clear and vivid on our large TV screen – I love that Disney is digitally restoring these classics! The extra content includes an interview about the songs in Mary Poppins, a reunion between Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, The Making of Mary Poppins, a deleted song (Chimpanzoo), and a new sing-along.
Did you know that Mary Poppins is based on a book series and that there are sequels to the first book? I haven’t read them (shameful, I KNOW), but I want to! Maybe I’ll read it to the kids
this next year. ;-)
You can find Disney’s Mary Poppins at Amazon.com right now for $29.99 on Blu-Ray+DVD and $19.99 for the DVD only version.
Disclosure: I was sent Mary Poppins so that I could share my thoughts on it with my readers! The opinions I have given are 100% mine based on my experiences. My amazon affiliate link is embedded in this post.
