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.
Australian video remix artist Nick Bertke (aka Pogo) has just released his latest Disney collaboration, ‘What I Likes’ featuring audio and video from the Walt Disney classic, Mary Poppins, featuring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. You can find the video embedded below.
‘What I Likes’ comes as Mary Poppins is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary and as Disney is preparing to release a film based on the actual events that lead to its production, Saving Mr. Banks in which Walt Disney attempts to court author P.L. Travers in his quest to turn her stories into a film.
World renowned actress, singer and best-selling children’s author, Julie Andrews, in collaboration with Target and The Walt Disney Company, is announcing the creation and inaugural launch of National Princess Week beginning April 22, 2012.
