Angela Lansbury Joins Mary Poppins Returns
Recently to join the cast of Mary Popping Returns is none other than Angela Lansbury, the iconic female of the 80s-90s and starring in her hit TV show Murder She Wrote. The veteran is giving acting another go at her age, and man I have to give her props. (I didn’t know she was still alive to tell you the truth.) Her role in the Disney world has been huge from Bedknobs and Broomsticks to Beauty and the Beast, so it’s no surprise that the ol’ gal would be a wonderful choice for Mary Poppins Returns.
The Sequel to the beloved Disney classic of the 60’s Mary Poppins is currently in production in London, and had Angela playing the role of Balloon Lady. The character is based on the P.L. Travers Mary Popping books. There are 8 books in total for this children’s series and were published from 1934 to 1988.
The film is set to be released around Christmas time in 2018, with others in cast such as Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Wishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, and of course Dick Van Dyke. This movie sounds like it will be fantastic, I personally will be there on opening day to see it considering it was definitely a fav as a child and can’t wait to take my children to see it. ^_^
