‘Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition’ on Blu-ray in December

'Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition' on Blu-ray‘Winds in the east, mist coming in… like something is brewing and about to begin. Can’t put me finger on what lies in store, but I fear what’s to happen all happened before.’

Except that what will be in store hasn’t happened before — at least not like this. On December 10, 2013, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release the beloved 1964 classic, Mary Poppins, on Blu-ray for the first time ever. That would place its release just a few days before Saving Mr. Banks opens in limited release on December 13 and on the same day its soundtrack, with music composed by Thomas Newman, is slated to be released.
