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?
