Just in time for the holidays, releasing from the Disney Vault and coming to Blu-ray for the first time is the beloved classic Mary Poppins. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the film shines like never before with an all-new digital restoration. Nominated for 13 Academy Awards and winner of five, including Best Actress for Julie Andrews, Best Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and Best Visual Effects, it is directed by Robert Stevenson and also stars Dick Van Dyke, David Tomlinson, Glynis Johns, Karen Dotrice and Matthew Garber. It also received a special scientific award for the creation and application of Color Traveling Matte Composite Cinematography, which helped make the combination of live action and animated actors in the film possible.
Set in 1910, “Practically Perfect In Every Way” Mary Poppins flies out of the windy London skies holding her magical umbrella and answers an ad for a new nanny created by two mischievous children, Michael and Jane. With the help of a carefree chimney sweep named Bert, the spirited nanny turns every chore into a game and every day into a whimsical adventure. Her magical carpetbag full of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious laughs sends a cold banker and his unhappy family on a warm, loving “Jolly Holiday.”
Both DVD and Blu-ray include previous released special features plus two all-new bonuses exclusive to Blu-ray: “Becoming Mr. Sherman” featurette and “Mary-Oke” with “Spoon Full of Sugar,” “Step in Time,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."
