Y’all know I’ve had a million jobs, right? Well, one of my most favorite roles was being a preschool teacher. I fancied myself a Mary Poppins type, just full of music and magic. Of course, the children I was taking care of probably thought I was a nut, but in my head, Mary P. and I were kindred spirits!
It’s been years since I was a caregiver for kids other than my own, and I can’t say I miss the job much. One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is my absolute adoration of Mary Poppins. Now she’s back, and I get to head to Hollywood to witness her return! From November 28 – 30, I’m going to Los Angeles with some of my favorite bloggers to walk the red carpet at the Mary Poppins Returns premiere! How amazing is that?
25 Days of Christmas and More!
That would have been enough for me, y’all. Just that is a dream come true, but my pals at Disney didn’t stop there. My jolly colleagues and I will get a sneak peek at the 25 Days of Christmas holiday content from ABC, Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, indeed!
I promise that I will share every single detail with y’all, including dates and times of the shows to look out for, a review of the movie, and more!
Wait—more. I forgot one VERY important piece of information. The interviews. I’m going to sit in the room with, and interview…wait for it:
- Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Jack”)
- Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins”)
- Pixie Davies (“Anabel Banks”) & Joel Dawson (“Georgie Banks”)
- Ben Whishaw (“Michael Banks”) & Emily Mortimer (“Jane Banks”)
- Rob Marshall (“Director”)
- Songwriters Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman
In addition to the Mary Poppins Returns activities, we’re also going to hang out with the 25 Days of Christmas crew! We’re going to check out a brand new holiday themed episode of Coop and Cami Ask The World, meet judges from The Great Christmas Light Fight and The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition, and do some good with the folks from Toys for Tots (watch the hashtag #25TonsofToys for more details!).
It’s going to be absolutely amazing, and I can’t wait to share the behind the scenes fun with all of y’all!
About Mary Poppins Returns
Here’s more about Mary Poppins Returns straight from the Disney studio:
In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
“Mary Poppins Returns” is directed by Rob Marshall. The screenplay is by David Magee and the screen story is by Magee & Rob Marshall & John DeLuca based upon the Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers.
Mary Poppins Returns arrives in theaters on December 19, 2018!
