There's a New Mary Poppins Movie in the Works

And Social Media is having a Fit!!!!!

Posted on

Disney is bringing Mary Poppins back to the big screen. No, she isn't leaving the infamous Disney vault. The magical nanny will come back to life in a new, original, live-action adaptation that will be directed by Into the Woods' Rob Marshall.

The updated version will take place during the 1920s Depression era in London, which is about 20 years after Disney's classic Mary Poppins starring Julie Andrews. While the Disney classic focused on the first installment of author P.L. Travers' eight-book series, this movie, which is not a sequel, will focus on Mary's further adventures with the Banks family.

But you can't just bring a classic film back to life without some serious backlash. Twitter is absolutely pissed about the idea of Disney messing with Andrews' famous character "Don't fix what isn't broken"??.

Here What People on Twitter had to say:

Christopher James @Chriskendle

My reaction when I heard Disney are remaking Mary Poppins

Paula Poundstone ✔ @paulapoundstone

It should not even be legal to make a new MARY POPPINS film. If there is an after life, Ed Wynn is not laughing.

Norm Schrager @MeetInTheLobby

I know who should play #Marypoppins. Julie Andrews. In the 1964 film.
