Is ‘Mary Poppins’ sacrosanct?
The classic “Mary Poppins” is iconic for its delightful story and beloved characters led by Julie Andrews as the magical nanny, so actress Emily Blunt has big heels to fill -- as does Disney -- in bringing back the character for “Mary Poppins Returns.”
Andrews has given her blessing to this sequel and there is hope she will play a role herself, but could it possibly approach the original? Are some films too sacrosanct for a revival?
