Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins
1 2 3 H  (Top 3 Family Films)

This was Julie Andrews’ film debut and she won an Oscar, at age 26.
P.L. Travers, the author of Mary Poppins did not approve of having animation in the film, but was overruled by Walt.
Walt's most successful Oscar night was for Mary Poppins

  So much production and quality for nearly 2.5 hours can be a lot to take in at a movie theatre, but at your home theatre this film finds a sweet spot, with something onscreen to appreciate at all times.


  Charmingly scored and great songs throughout keep the entertainment merry and popping 


  A vast cinema toy box filled with clever effects, enjoyable characters and live action mixed with animation to an effect never yet surpassed
