Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment celebrated the 50th anniversary of “Mary Poppins” by releasing the classic Disney movie on Blu-ray for the first time! You can pick up “Mary Poppins” on a new Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack – just in time for the holidays!
Here’s a description of the release:
“Releasing from the Disney Vault in celebration of its 50th Anniversary, creative visionary Walt Disney’s classic shines for the first time on Blu-ray. Starring Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews in her Academy-Award winning role, and featuring iconic toe-tapping songs including ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’ and ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,’ Mary Poppins is a movie experience your family will enjoy again and again. An all-new digital restoration adds even more magic – helping bring the award-winning songs and amazing picture to life like never before.”
This release had perfect timing as today is the day that Disney released “Saving Mr. Banks” to theaters. The film is all about how Walt Disney convinced “Mary Poppins” author P.L. Travers to sell him the rights to her story.
Bonus features on the “Mary Poppins” Blu-ray include:
Mary-OKE’s – New piece highlights popular music from the film, specifically “Spoon Full of Sugar,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” Step In Time,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and allows viewer to sing-along to animated words that display onscreen in unique ways.
Becoming Mr. Sherman (TBC by theatrical team): Join actor Jason Schwartzman as he sits down for a fun and musical-filled afternoon with Richard Sherman. In the new film, SAVING MR BANKS, Schwartzman portrays the Disney Legend… half of the famous composing team, the Sherman Brothers who wrote all the classic songs from MARY POPPINS, as well as many other favorites. Hear heartwarming, revealing stories about the making of this beloved musical, get more insight on working with Walt Disney, and get a unique sneak peek into SAVING MR BANKS, starring Tom Hanks, and Emma Thompson.
Honestly we had forgotten how much we loved “Mary Poppins” until we watched the new Blu-ray release. There are so many iconic parts to the movie, like Mary’s giant bag she unpacks when she arrives at the Banks’ home, and the street art that Mary, Bert and the kids jump into! Plus who doesn’t love all of the fabulous music from the Sherman brothers in the film?
This is a heartwarming movie that’s also perfect for a night of laughs and dancing with your family and friends. We highly recommend grabbing this movie during the holidays, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for sure!
