I'm surprised Julie Andrews doesn't have a part therein.

She was asked and respectfully declined, not because she was against being in the film, but because she and everybody else knew she would upstage Emily Blunt and detract attention away from her in the process, even if it was just a cameo.

Julie knows that's something that you don't do to the star when she is now playing the role you originally and memorably (to entire generations) played. There's a lot riding on Emily Blunt after all. This is planned to be her "role of a lifetime".


She decided to cameo in Aquaman instead! In direct competition to Mary Poppins this christmas!

I guess that means Andrews doesnt give a shit about Blunts Poppins.

Not that I give a rat's ass about this movie, but does Dick Van Dyke have a musical number in this?

He has a little dance and bit of a song. He's delightful, as is Angela Lansbury. Emily Blunt won't make anyone forget Ms. Andrews, but she's fine. The film is more frenetic (in that today way - they've added a villain so they can have a ticking clock at the end - literally a ticking clock - I could have lived without that, certainly), and, for me, the film's true emotional moments are when Mr. Shaiman quotes the Shermans' songs.

I suspect many will love it, some will like it, and some will not like it at all - just like every other movie ever made.

Does Shaiman use the concertina in his orchestration?

Playing this on Spotify. The orchestration is stupendous! The songs thus far are "fun", but not sure reach instant classic level like the original or say the Disney animated films of the late 80's and 90's. But they might grow on me.

Emily Blunt does a fantastic job singing, assuming it's her real voice and not super duper auto-tuned. I dunno. There's a bit more edginess to her vocals. BTW I wouldn't have a clue who Emily Blunt was if I didn't see a certain Tom Cruise Sci Fi movie on some movie channel.

You need to watch DAN IN REAL LIFE so you can see Blunt shake her booty!

I don't know how Blunt will be in Mary Poppins; however, I find her to be an incredible, versatile actor. She was good in Edge Of Tomorrow. She was superb in The Girl On The Train, and A Quiet Place.

Disney as usual separated the songs from the score. Can anyone provide film order playlist?

I don't think I've heard a memorable Disney song since the 1990's. I wanna balfe all the place in regards to those "Frozen" songs.

Agreed the songs are not memorable. I hated the songs in Frozen. The songs in Galavant were much better.

"Sicario", "Edge of Tomorrow", "The Adjustment Bureau", "Looper", "A Quiet Place"... quite a lot of (good) movies where's Emily Blunt is always charismatic and perfectly convincing.

When Shaiman was announced for this film, it immediately sounded like perfect composer casting. Same with Emily Blunt... you heard that she was doing it, and you thought, "well, of course!"

I've had the CD on a little here and there this week, and have found a few of the songs to be very catchy. "(Underneath The) Lovely London Sky" is really wonderful, and its melody seems to pop up in the score a lot. Several of the others are really excellent as well, and they do that odd thing of both seeming to pay slight homage to the Sherman songs from the original, but they also really sound like Shaiman / Whitman songs too. I was surprised that some of the song are REALLY in the style of the Shermans (like "A Cover Is Not The Book" among others).

I haven't seen the movie yet, but it seems like Shaiman really got it right. The quotes from the original songs and score are surprisingly moving as well. The way Shaiman / Whitman threaded lyrics and melody from "Let's Go Fly A Kite" into "Nowhere To Go But Up" really choked me up. I'm looking forward to seeing / hearing the whole thing.
