Mary Poppins (December 10th, 2013)



pseudo announced, but according to Ronald Epstein over at Home Theater Forum has posted an ad for Disney's 'Mary Poppins' (from Home Media magazine) to coincide with the theatrical release of 'Saving Mr. Banks' this December - on the 10th to be exact. Ten days later 'Saving Mr. Banks' the story of Poppins writer P. L. Travers and her meeting Walt Disney to film her iconic book hits screens nationally

details will obviously be forthcoming, but this is big news in my book.

I really hope that isn't the actual cover art, but regardless, this is a must-own for me.

I thought it was really cool to see that design evoked, though I associate it more with Pete's Dragon.

I love this movie. My older sister took me to Grumann's Chinese Theater to see it. Even though I was very young I remember bits and pieces of that day.

I like the cover too. I hope they did an awesome job with the transfer.

I wonder if the trailer of Mary Poppins Blu - seen on the Robin Hood Blu - is indicative of the transfer quality. It looked decent.

I love this move too!! Although when I was little, the scene with the head of the bank scared me -- I' so happy to hear that the DVD is beautiful!
