Mary Poppins movie 2018
A good fairy tale is always good. A friend and favorite since childhood - even better. The kindest, smartest, and most knowledgeable nanny in the world is returning: “Mary Poppins” 2018 is released on screens. The fairy tale by Pamela Travers, released in 1934, managed to become classics, Mary and Poppins are loved by children and adults all over the world - the primordial English nanny loved the people of different countries with different mentalities and education. Strange is the fact that the books of the trilogy filmed very little:
|Name||Year of issue||A country|
|The musical "Mary Poppins"||1964||USA|
|"Mary Poppins, goodbye"||1983||the USSR|
The new film, as the name suggests, will be the adaptation of the second book of the series: “Mary Poppins is back.” The composition of the crew is well known and it inspires respect and hope for a very high-quality and beautiful film.
Directing assigned to Rob Marshall. In his piggy bank a lot of great pictures that are included in the modern classics of cinema:
- Chicago (2002);
- “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005);
- The Nine (2009);
- “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” (2011).
The team of producers is also solid, repeatedly working together. Joins producer Rob Marshall, in addition to his role in the creation of John De Luc, Mark E. Platt, Aengus Mor Gordon and Michael Zimmer. All of them have previously intersected on the set, working on the above pictures.
About the screenwriter must be said separately. This is David Magee, who has three high-rated tapes: Life of Pi (2012), Miss Pettigrew (2007) and Magic Country (2004). Magee is currently working on a script for the next part of The Chronicles of Narnia. The author of the script is the late Pamela Travers, who wrote the trilogy about the British nanny. It is not clear: as a sign of respect, or this means that there will be no deviations from the book at all, or assumptions will be minimal.
The operator of the picture is Australian Dion Bibi. They trust his films to make famous directors, including Kurt Wimeer, Michael Bay and Rob Marshall. You can judge his talent by the following tapes:
- “Edge of the Future” (2014);
- The Green Lantern (2011);
- Chicago (2002);
- Equilibrium (2002).
The team of artists consists of nine people, to list the merits of individuals for too long, but in the "overall" on their conscience the loudest and most colorful films of recent years:
- The Great Wall (2016);
- “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (2014);
- “Mission Impossible: Tribe of Outcasts” (2015);
- Malifisent (2014);
- Sherlock Holmes (2009);
- Interview with the Vampire (1994).
When will the movie
The official release date is scheduled for December 25, 2018. The day when the tape will be released is a Catholic Christmas and the manufacturer’s plan is clear: when else can you watch good family tales, if not on such a holiday?
The actors playing the main roles are very well known to the viewer, the minor characters are also mostly familiar faces (mostly from the TV series). Extremely successful can be called the choice of the director of the actress who plays the main character. The role of Mary Poppins went to Emily Blunt. Her appearance and demeanor will suit a little of a prim and lovely British nanny. Also among the actors can distinguish two more celebrities: Meryl Streep and Colin Firth.
In addition to world stars, smaller stars are also involved, more familiar to Western viewers:
- Angela Lansbury (the famous "grandmother-death" from the series "She wrote Murder");
- Emily Mortimer (“The Island of the Damned” (2009); “The Keeper of Time” (2011);
- Dick Van Dyke (starred in the 1964 film Mary Poppins);
- Lee-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton (2015); "How I Met Your Mother" (TV series);
- Ben Wishaw ("007: SPECTRUM" (2015); "Heart of the Sea" (2015);
- Julie Walters (“The Adventures of Paddington” (2014); “Brooklyn” (2015);
What is the movie about
The plot is similar to that described in the book. England of the early twentieth century, London. Michael and Jane Bangs have grown up, got their own children. Adults have enough of their worries (the Great Depression in the yard), kids are tomboy left to themselves, they don’t want to delve into them and only play on parental nerves.
Mary Poppins hurries to help former pupils. She will have to use the entire magical arsenal and talents of a psychologist to save the children. After all, adult problems, as far as they would not be global, should not be reflected on children.
Summary, known at the moment, does not give the full picture: as far as the film goes from the book. It remains only to wait and independently assess the similarity.
