Mary Poppins is such a classic timeless film, so I was thrilled that Disney sent me the 50th Anniversary Edition to review.
“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. Share the music; share the magic; share the joy of Mary Poppins this holiday on Blu-ray Combo Pack & HD Digital December 10.”
I LOVED watching Mary Poppins as a child (and still do). I hadn’t introduced it to my kids until now and was thrilled to show it to them. What better way than with this new Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack. We all watched it together and they fell in love with Mary Poppins just like I had as a child! It was so fun watching them enjoying this movie as I did/and still do. It really is a timeless film.
I had forgotten just how great this movie is. It is magical! The music is spectacular and I love how it is just feel good clean family entertainment. That is hard to find these days. I definitely think this is a MUST HAVE addition to your family movie collection.
My favorite part of the movie is when Mary Poppins sings “A Spoonful of Sugar”…
