    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Yes! That's another point I was unpleasantly surprised about. Everything piled on ONE disc? We know for sure that the UK blu-ray is all on one disc.

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Byron, all we know so far for new extras is the "Mary-OKE" sing a long, and "Becoming Mr Sherman". Everything else seems to be carried over from the previous editions. Maybe they added more to already existing documentary we can hope? If that's all there is new for extras, I find that very...

    Thanks, Jason. That makes sense. It would be great if there was a book released on the history and production of the film at least. All the artwork and photographs that could be included would make a gorgeous presentation. There have been many Poppins storybooks through the years, but not...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Very excited that the released date is near, but why on earth is this great film not getting a special box set? I think it deserves a nice collector's boxed set like 'Wizard of Oz" or "Sound of Music" got. They could have included a book, postcards, extra features, etc. From what we've heard...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Mary Poppins was shown last night at Grauman's as part of the AFI Fest. Here's a nice clip of Dick Van Dyke on the red carpet. Halfway through he holds up the new blu-ray. Thought I'd post this here as it's a nice little preview of the slip cover.

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    Thank you, Mark, for your kind reply! I was thinking the same thing about a set of Merchant-Ivory films. That reminds me of the CD set that was released in the 90's titled, "The E.M. Forster Trilogy" containing the soundtracks of the three films. Those Richard Robbins scores are so beautiful...

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    Mark Walker said: Completely unrelated, folks may have heard that Criterion and its affiliated companies have lost the rights to the Merchant-Ivory films in their catalog. If you do not yet have "Maurice," on DVD, a landmark LGBT film for me and many others, now is the time to find a copy...

    Thank you for all the additional captures. It's interesting to see the same frame looking a variety of ways. She's so lovely.

    Here are captures from the 45th Anniv DVD and the 50th blu-ray trailer, just for general comparison. 45th DVD: blu-ray trailer as seen on Muppet Movie blu-ray:

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Hi Ethan. I understand and I agree with much of your opinions on the trailer. Yes, I was referring to the same trailer you are.. the one included on the Muppet Movie blu-ray. I've heard from a couple of sources that worked on the piece and it seems that the footage in the blu-ray trailer is...

    Love that book, Ethan! When you say that the footage in the HD trailer is not what we'll be seeing on the blu-ray, do you know that for sure? The footage used in the blu-ray trailer looks just like the print I saw at a special event at Cinemark XD theaters last fall. It looked impressive and...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Yes, me too! :) I remember when I was young there was a lady visiting who saw that I was watching Chitty and said, "Oh Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke". I said, "no, that's not Julie Andrews". She said, "Yes, it is." Haha! One of the funniest things was when I showed someone a photo of my...

    Yes, in that sense it does, but Hushabye reminds me of Chim Chim Cheree because of the melody being similar. You can almost sing them in counterpoint.
