About the film:
For the first time on Blu-Ray, the lovable Disney Classic, Mary Poppins, returns & is celebrating its 50th Anniversary & just in time with the release of Disney's Saving Mr. Banks! In London one day, comes Mary Poppins flying from the sky and onto the doorstep of the Banks family to care for their two mischievous children. With the help of her friend Bert, a chimney sweep, Mary turns every chore into a game & tries to make the most of every day. Full of music & magic, Mary Poppins is a joy to watch from start to finish!

Our thoughts on the film:
Still the same lovable movie but now it's digitally restored & even brighter & better to watch on Blu-Ray! I remember watching Mary Poppins when I was about 5 years old & how much I loved the songs. My son is 5 years old & even though he loves watching movies, I wasn't sure if he wanted to watch Mary Poppins with me. To my surprise, he did & he sat through the whole movie. He said he wished he could clean his room as fast as Mary Poppins & I can't say that I don't agree! Great story, memorable songs & I love Julie Andrews as Mary!
The Blu-Ray included two new bonus features – Mary-Oke Sing-Along & Becoming Mr. Sherman along with the same bonus features from the previous release. One of my favorites being this clip below:
Such a great movie that the whole family – young & old – can enjoy together. Mary Poppins will be released on December 10, 2013 so be sure to get your own copy then! Definitely a must-have for any Disney fan! 😀
