Strange Things Happen When Mary Poppins Meets Death Metal
Feb 28, 2015
The film was an adaptation of a series of books by the same name written by P.L. Travers. Ms. Travers was first approached by Walt Disney about a movie in 1938, but refused for many years on the belief that a film wouldn't do her work justice. Even after agreeing in 1961, she disagreed with so many aspects of the filming process that she squashed any plans for sequels. Whatever would she make of this death metal adaptation?
Disney's 1964 classic "Mary Poppins" is beloved by children and adults around the world. The film received 13 Academy Award nominations (an all-time record for Disney movies) and won five, including Best Actress for Julie Andrews in the titular role of the magical and stern-yet-lovable nanny, Mary Poppins.
