Actor Emily Blunt says she wants to revisit Mary Poppins ‘world once more. The star, 37, has taken on the role of the magical English nanny in Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, which was a direct sequel to the film from 1964.
“I don’t know if it’ll happen, but I loved playing Poppins so much. I don’t necessarily like to revisit parts I’ve already done, but the ones I found joyous, I’d think about them,” Emily said.
Blunt is awaiting the release of her new film, A Quiet Place 2. The film was set to be released worldwide earlier this month, directed by her husband actor John Krasinski, but has now been delayed in the midst of the pandemic.
In the situations that Evelyn faces in the movies ‘A Quiet Place,’ which sees the slightest noise activates the senses of killer aliens hunted by sound, the English actress doesn’t think Mary will exactly reflect well.
She said “I feel like Mary Poppins is very chatty and the ‘Devil Wears Prada’ character [I played] would be useless in that environment.
“I don’t think she’d do well with bare feet. I think between the two of them, they’d be dead, for sure.”
Two people who will be delighted to be playing Poppins again are her and John’s daughters Hazel, 5 and Violet,3 because of they love the movie.
