Mary Poppins Returns
Release Date: December 25, 2018
Mary Poppins Returns is a continuation of the beloved Mary Poppins story and I can not wait to see this film. The trailer's color scheme seems to be a bit dark. I hope the colors become more bright and cheery as the film progresses. I noticed all the references in the trailer to the original film. I mean, when I saw that kite starting to blow in the wind it made want to start singing I Want to Go Fly a Kite. Now, where is the casting is concerned it's a toss-up. I think Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins could be a fantastic choice. However, I am concerned with the pick of Lin Manuel Miranda. I just don't think he is as great of a performer as so many make him out to be. So if his performance is underwhelming I'm afraid he could drag the entire film down with him. When I first heard about this film I was completely closed off from it. But now after seeing the trailer I am more open-minded and will absolutely see this film. Don't screw it up Disney!!!
Release Date: TBD
Like Mary Poppins Returns, Christopher Robin is also a continuation of a beloved character and his adventures. In Christopher Robin, we find Christopher all grown up and has started his own family. But in a debacle. And in his need and imagination, Pooh returns. I found this trailer absolutely charming and I am so looking forward to this film release. I love the casting of Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin. I think he was a perfect choice. Now, I have seen some people complain about how Pooh looks. I, however, do not find fault with the studios choice about how to physically portray Pooh. Christopher has grown up so it would only be natural for Christopher to see his old friend a little older as well. Remember, Pooh is a well-loved bear. I can tell this entire film is going the charm everybody, but especially those like me who grew up on this character.
