You see, Walt Disney was obviously a loving and devoted father, and he promised his girls that he would make a movie about their favorite book. Little did he know that he would run into more than a few hiccups along the way. The author, Mrs. Travers, was not so easily swayed by Disney's pleas to immortalize her beloved book on film, and she certainly didn't make the process too easy on him.
Check out these great clips below to see why this movie is pure Disney magic!
In addition to the feature film, the Blu-Ray combo pack offers some fantastic bonus materials. I especially loved the tour of Walt Disney Studios!
- The Walt Disney Studios: From Poppins to Present (Blu-ray & Digital HD) – Join Director John Lee Hancock on a tour of the Disney Studios lot, reflect on studio life during the making of Mary Poppins, and discover how Walt’s creative spirit still flourishes today.
- Let’s Go Fly a Kite (Blu-ray & Digital HD) – Cast and crew sing break out in a rousing, heartfelt tribute to Composer Richard Sherman on the last day of filming.
- Deleted Scenes:
- Stargaze (Blu-ray & Digital HD) – A picture on Walt’s desk leads to a flashback of Pamela’s childhood.
- Pam Leaves (Blu-ray & Digital HD) – After yet another disagreement with Walt, Pamela leaves his office and heads for the airport.
