We're in two minds about this news. Given that a) Mary Poppins is a Disney classic and b) Julie Andrews is a total legend, we're not sure how they will manage to retain the magic with this remake.
The new film is to be set 20 years after the original Disney feature and will be adapted from the rest of author, P.L. Travers' children's book series. With Rob Marshall set to direct, it could well turn out to be a huge hit for Disney.
The big question is, who will play Mary? Rumour has it Emma Watson (no, just no) or Keira Knightley (more plausible, but still... no) could be in the running, but somehow we don't see it.
No more details available as yet, but in the meantime, why not recreate Mary's 'practically perfect in every way' style for autumn, or better yet make it your Halloween costume this year!
Hey, you'll be bang on trend...
